Now accepting applications for full and part-time care! Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Barrhaven 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.
Hello, my name is Zahra Abdilahi and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Barrhaven location. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education Diploma from Loyalist College. I have been working with children for the last 15 years — my love for children started at an early age. I have been blessed with 2 children: a son and a daughter. In my spare time, I love to go on walks, swim and read a great book.My favourite thing about working at Kids & Company is how each team member is devoted to bettering children’s lives. Our team works wonderfully together and we have so much respect for each other. We work together as a unit to provide the best possible care for our children. The families at our Barrhaven centre are so connected to each other. For the last 11 years, we have the privilege to serve these wonderful families and their children. The pillar of this centre is mutual respect and open communication with families. I would be thrilled to meet you and your family! We look forward to welcoming you to the Kids & Company centre in Barrhaven so you can see for yourself how incredible the program is in providing the right care and education for your children.
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 offers school-age adventures during school breaks and summer for children 6-12, with select centres offering support during online schooling. We meet each morning at your chosen centre and then undertake daily adventures on-site. We plan themes and outings that are designed to stimulate and excite in a setting that is safe, social and fun. Children who join us for a day, a week or a summer create important friendships and exercise their minds and bodies.

Kids & Company has relieved that by providing access to reliable, emergency child care. All I have to do is call, and I know my kids are safe and nurtured so I can get back to work.” – Katherine
