Our Kids & Company Niagara centre is located at the corner of Queen and Ontario street, just next to City Hall. We have 4 classrooms and can accommodate up to 57 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Our centre is always filled with smiling faces, both from our children and our fantastic staff. We take both pleasure and pride in seeing all of our children reach their milestones, as they grow and transition through our programs. Our incredible team of teachers work together to form a strong support network for our families, in addition to a nurturing learning environment for our children. Some of our staff have been providing child care in this building for over 30 years! Subsidies are accepted in Niagara. Contact the Centre Director for more information
My name is Jackie McFarlane and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Niagara Queen. I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator and have been working in childcare for over 25 years. I started with Kids & Company in 1999! I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children. I love to travel and try to visit a new destination each year. I volunteer for the City of Niagara Falls and help with the 2 parades. At Kids & Company Niagara Queen we are like a big family. We know how to make each other laugh and we have a great relationship with our families. I have an open-door policy that if a parent needs something they can always come in and ask. We treat each child like they are our own and enjoy watching them grow. Our centre is located close to Niagara Falls, on a quiet day, we can hear the falls. Now that you know more about me, I’d love to get to know you! Come visit our Niagara Queen location to see if Kids & Company is the right fit for your family!
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.
For the time being, our in-centre birthday party and other live events will temporarily not be available. If you require any information on future bookings or have any questions, please reach out to Christie firstname.lastname@example.org
