Now accepting applications for full and part-time care! Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Rosedale 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.
Parking for drop off available in church lane way out front. If occupied, center shares parking with Branksome Hall one block south.
Meet the Director
My name is Anna Green and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Rosedale. I received a Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies from Oxford Brookes University and a 2-year NNEB at Oxford College of Further Education. I started with Kids & Company in 2014 and have been working in the child care field for over 22 years. I live in a happy home with my husband David, and 2 little girls, Eleanor and Amelia. In my spare time, I spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy long family walks and having fun with my daughters. I love working with my amazing team at Rosedale. We are a very close-knit community and are working hard to provide the best care possible for our families. My philosophy is to let children take the lead in their play and learning! Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you. Come to visit our Rosedale centre for a chance to see how we can provide the right care and education for your family!

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
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.
