Okotoks

Our Centre

I am Alyssa Dinn, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Okotoks. I attended Bow Valley College, where I received a diploma in Early Learning and Childcare. I began my child care career at Kids & Company in 2018. I am passionate about childcare because I want to help give children a voice and imagination. My favourite thing about working with Kids & Company is the inclusion and acceptance of all individuals. Okotoks is fortunate to be sharing the town with deer. We often see deer grazing in the fields next to us.

Meet the Director

Hello, my name is Rebecca Baillargeon and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Okotoks. I graduated with a Bachelor of Child Studies in Early Learning and Childcare from Mount Royal University. I have been working at Kids & Company since February 2020 and in the child care field for over 6 years. 

I have always known I would work with children, I just needed to choose which path I would take. In my spare time, I love being in nature, hiking, camping, gardening — really anything that will keep me outdoors! The Okotoks team goes above and beyond anything I expect of them. Even throughout the pandemic, they were able to maintain and develop the relationships they have created with our families.

Kids & Company has provided a space for children to be themselves. We encourage them to be imaginative and explore the world around them. When you come to Okotoks Kids & Company you become a part of our family. We work together to provide the best care possible and often see children begin in our infant program and graduate all the way to our OOSC program. 

Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Okotoks centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • day care center

      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
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      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.

  • Preschool
    • child looking through a magnifying glass

      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.
