Our Centre

Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Ottawa Westboro area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company: Our Kids & Company Ottawa Westboro centre is located near the corner of McRae Avenue and Scott Street in Westboro Village. We are excited to join the trendy and diverse community of Westboro Village and offer flexible child care options to its’ residents. Our centre can accommodate up to 82 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Our classrooms are bright and sunny with huge windows looking into our learning spaces. Our large playground is right outside of our doors so that we can enjoy unstructured play and the great outdoors year-round. 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. Does your family have an untraditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs! More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance. Kids & Company is a proud member of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce

Meet The Director

My name is Amy Knight and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Westboro centre. I have been working with Kids & Company since 2018 and have over 12 years of experience in the child care industry. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Education from St. Lawrence College in Kingston and knew that I wanted to work with children in high school. To tell you more about myself, in my spare time I like to spend time with my family and spending time outside. I also enjoy dance and practising yoga. I have a wonderful husband named Joel and we have two daughters. My favourite thing about our centre is the small size and intimacy. We get to know our families very well and develop close relationships on a personal basis. Now that you know a bit more about me, it would be my pleasure to meet you and give you a tour of our Westboro centre. Come see for yourself how Kids & Company provides quality care and education for your child!

      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.
