Our Kids & Company London Richmond centre is located on the corner of Windermere and Richmond, in a building called “The Mount”. We are within walking distance to the Masonville London Library, as well as the nature trails in Gibbons Park, perfect for scenic stroller walks with our infants. We have 8 classrooms that can accommodate up to 103 children, ranging from infant to school age. We have a lovely playground with separate play areas for each age group. Our gated play space overlooks the Thames River and we often get to observe a family of deer, geese, and even groundhogs! We recognize that not all families have a “9 to 5” work schedule, and we strive to accommodate each family’s unique needs. We offer extended hours, opening as early as 6:00 am and staying as late as 8:00 pm, to assist our families with their unique work schedules.
Our parking lot is accessible off of Windermere Rd. Please follow the Kids & Company signs.
Meet the Director
My name is Sarah Mavrikkou, and I am the Director at the Kids & Company London centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since May of 2017 and have over 10 years of experience in child care. I am also a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma. One of my favourite parts of our day is our Mini Masters art program. Our children learn about the works of various artists, and then are able to express themselves in creative ways. I love experiencing that “Wow!” moment with a child – you see their world open up as they make connections and understand new concepts. I chose to work for Kids & Company as this company understands the working family and how we as a child care can work to assist and build a strong community together. One of my favourite things about the London Richmond Centre is the beautiful scenery that surrounds us, we have an exquisite view of the Thames River and scenic nature surrounding our outdoor play yard. I hope you come to visit our London centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
