Now accepting applications for full-time and part-time care. Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Oakville West area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company! 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 superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance!
I am Brittany Hervé, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Oakville West. I attended Mohawk College where I received a diploma for Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for 8 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2021. I knew I wanted to work with children since I was a little girl. My mother ran an in-home child care by herself, and I fell in love with the industry. I am a new mom to a beautiful girl, and I have a very supportive fiancée. In my spare time, I love to garden, bake, and go on day trips with friends and family. I also love to spend time with my family and decorate the house when I have free time. The Kids & Company Oakville West location is full of fantastic educators who are always there to support our families and one another. What makes our centre unique is that we are not just a child care centre, but rather a community that lends a helping hand wherever it is needed. Kids & Company offers many different programs to allow your children to really shine through. I hope when people see our centre, they can see how important the quality of the care we are providing is to us. I continuously ensure that all of our educators are not only exceeding my expectations as a Director, but also as a parent. I consider everyone who walks through our doors as an extension of our family at Oakville West, and I strive to know everyone on a personal level. 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.
