Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Mississauga area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company: Our Kids & Company Mississauga Gateway centre is located near the major intersection of Hurontario Street and Highway 401. We are excited to join the Mississauga community and offer flexible child care options to its’ residents. Our centre can accommodate up to 99 children ranging from infant to 5 years old. Our classrooms are bright and sunny with huge windows looking into our learning spaces. Our large playground is right outside of our doors so that we can enjoy unstructured play and the great outdoors year-round. 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, French, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day. More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance. Subsidy available through The Region of Peel.
My name is Lily Wang and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Mississauga Gateway. I graduated with a B.A. in English and an Early Childhood Education Diploma. I started with Kids & Company in 2011 and have been working in the child care field for over 15 years.
I knew that I wanted to work with children since I was in high school. I have two wonderful children, a boy and a girl. After work, most of the time I like to play with my children and spend time with them. We love dancing and painting as a family.
What I love most about the Kids & Company Gateway team is the positive and nurturing atmosphere. It is truly one of a kind. Being a Director at Kids & Company, I get to partake in every aspect of the child and parent relationship while working together with our teams to build a healthy future for all of our children.
Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you! Come visit our Mississauga Gateway 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.
Kids & Company runs comprehensive kindergarten programs designed for children who are 4 or 5 years old (junior and senior kindergarten age) to prepare them for Grade 1. Using emergent curriculum techniques to adapt to the children’s’ interests and skills, we set a foundation of early literacy, numeracy, artistry, and the construction of relationships and ideas. Kindergarten programs are integrated into full-time child care to provide convenience and continuity.
