Queen West

Our Centre

Do you live or work in the Queen West area? Are you exploring early education and child care options? Our highly-anticipated Queen West facility opened in early 2019 and accepts infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children in flexible programs and schedules. It is also home to our STREAM preschool program (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, math) which features an emphasis on STEM areas and a Montessori approach to learning for children (click here to find out more about STREAM). The centre has capacity for 137 children in nine bright and beautiful classrooms with stunning views out to the city skyline, and a spacious gross motor room for indoor play and our Munchkinetics program. 

Kidco Work is available here! A small section of the centre has designated co-working spaces exclusive to Kids & Company families (contact kidcowork@kidsandcompany.com or click here for more information on co-working). .

 

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.

Meet the Director

My name is Pam Janes and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Queen West centre as well as one of our Toronto Area Directors. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma from George Brown College and have over 16 years of child care experience. Outside the world of child care, I love spending time up north with my family which includes six nephews between the ages of 4-14 and my adorable dog! I also enjoy watching movies, reading and travelling. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Queen West centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right 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.

  • 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.

  • Emergent Curriculum
    • STREAM preschool program at daycare

      The backbone of curriculum at Kids & Company is an emergent or cue-based approach that allows students to lead their own discoveries and learning. Emergent curriculum is a modern education philosophy that moves away from pre-set daily lesson plans in exchange for facilitating learning opportunities in thoughtful ways as children’s interests and skills are observed. It is the leading method for early childhood development in North America.   Educators must be well-trained to identify interests and build appropriate invitations to learn about the world through experimentation, art, imaginary play, music, literature, movement and more. Gently guiding with probing questions and encouraging the pursuit of ideas, teachers cover age-appropriate concepts in ways that spark curiosity and excitement in a child.
