Do you live or work in the Queen West area? Are you exploring early education and child care options? 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. 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 superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance. Our Queen West location features a beautiful and spacious gross motor room, big bright windows in every room and a stunning view of the Toronto skyline! INTRODUCING THE STREAM PRESCHOOL PROGRAM Our Queen West location will be offering A STREAM preschool program (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, math) beginning February 2019. In addition to our core pillars, the STREAM preschool program features: an emphasis on STEM learning, a Montessori approach including observations of the child, individual liberties and preparation of the environment, and elements from Kids & Company standard curriculum including Mini Masters (artistry), Alpha-Mania (early literacy) and Munchkinetics programming (movement). Children suited for the program are those with curiosity about numbers, how things work, mechanics and construction, and a sense of independence and self-direction.

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!
