Marda Loop

Our Centre

Though very close to downtown, the vibrant Marda Loop community maintains a sense of close-knit neighbourly charm with lots to offer families – including Kids & Company. We provide high-quality care and early learning from infants up to school-age kids. Our space features bright and beautiful classrooms on the second floor of the new Garrison Corner building. The centre is conveniently located just off Crowchild Trail and 33rd Avenue SW with underground parking and easy access to family-friendly shops like Safeway, Cobb’s Bread, Village Ice Cream, and Ripe Tomato Pizza.

At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re very proud of our proprietary programs! They include Alpha Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics(movement) and are designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! We often hear children singing the Alpha Mania theme song before the teacher even begins the lessons, a clear indication of their enthusiasm about learning through play. You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms, and all our children participate in music, yoga, French, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day. Our Kidco Kitchen creates healthy, made from scratch snacks and lunch for the children each day. At the end of the day, as you gather your child’s belongings from their dedicated cubbie, they can help themselves to a complimentary Grab and Go snack for the ride home. More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.

We know children who sing, dance and explore music regularly perform better in academic settings and tend to have higher self-esteem and social skills. That’s why we believe in introducing it at an early age and run a daily music program that involves interactive songs, rhythmic expression, games and movement. At this centre, we are also affiliated with Together with Heather Music. Heather and her musicians join us each week – on rotating days so our part-time children see them – bringing along age-appropriate tools like shakers, rattles, ukuleles and more. With a background in musical therapy and a successful career in creating children’s albums, this partner complements our music program perfectly. https://rattleandstrum.com/together-with-heather-music.

Meet The Director

My name is Candy Arceo and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Marda Loop centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2012 and have an Early Childhood Education degree from Bow Valley College. I have been working in the child care field for more than 15 years and was a Special Education teacher in the Philippines. I consider working with children my calling! I have two boys that love to play basketball and watch movies. I prefer to learn, read books, and of course spend time with my family! I have worked at different Kids & Company centres that are all special to me. The thing I love most about Marda Loop is being part of a strong team and family-focused community. We have great energy in the centre and we all look forward to our days with the children. Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you! Come visit us for a tour 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.
