Our Kids & Company Richmond centre is located near Cambie Street and Shell Road. We have 4 classrooms that can accommodate up to 52 children ranging from infant to 5 years. One of the first things you will notice about our Richmond centre is the colourful and bright classrooms which create a warm and nurturing environment. A typical day at Richmond includes unique Kids & Company programs such as Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and reading), Munchkinetics (movement), Music, French and Mini Masters (art). We have a large playground and great outdoor space for playing games, chalk art and exploring nature. Whether we are collecting leaves, splashing in rain puddles or practising our Munchkinetics program, our children enjoy the playground all year round! We have a fantastic team of teachers who take both pleasure and pride in seeing each child reach their next milestone as they grow and transition from one classroom to the next.

Meet The Director
My name is Thaisbher Aguilar and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Richmond centre. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma from Vancouver Career College in addition to Montessori Training. I also have a Bachelor of Accounting from the University of Venezuela. I am passionate about child care and have been working in the field for over 11 years. To tell you a bit more about myself, I am happily married to my husband Jorge and we have one child, Manolo. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafts and embroidery. I love working at the Richmond centre because it is a fun, creative and warm learning environment to be in. My favourite part of the day is when I walk by a classroom and hear our students laughing and enjoying themselves. That is what learning and growing are all about! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Richmond 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 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 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.
