Meet the Director
I am Tanya Reed, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Oakville Ford. I attended Sheridan College where I received a diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for over 6 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2019. I have three sons of my own, two with autism, which sparked my interest in working with children that have special needs and differing abilities. I spend most nights at the baseball diamond cheering my children on. I also enjoy structured dance, listening to music, and watching movies. The Kids & Company Oakville Ford location has an amazing team atmosphere. There is always support available whenever you are in need. What makes our centre unique is how beautiful and peaceful the surrounding environment of the centre is. My personal philosophy is inclusion and respect for all children. Children develop differently and making them feel safe and secure to learn at their own pace is important, and the Oakville Ford location at Kids & Company fully encompasses that philosophy. Now that you know a little more about me, I hope to see you and your family soon!
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.
