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 Ashleigh Bundock and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Rosedale centre. I have an Early Childhood Education diploma from Fanshawe College and am currently completing my degree with Guelph-Humber. I started working at Kids & Company in 2015 and have over 5 years of experience in the child care field.
To tell you a bit more about myself, I live with my husband with our dog and cat. In my spare time, I love to paint, read and eat new foods. I love working at Kids & Company because every child is valued, whether they visit for the day or are full time. We treat all children the same and are very welcoming to new faces. I strongly believe that every child’s voice should be heard and that we should always validate their thoughts and feelings. I love the nature surrounding our Rosedale centre, as well as the big windows for the wonderful views of outside. We are located inside a church in a nice neighbourhood which gives us a cozy feel.
Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Rosedale centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
If you are a corporate linked employee, back-up child care is available when your regular child care arrangements fall through. You can access this last-minute care for your children on a moment’s notice. Maybe your regular caregiver becomes ill, or there’s a school closure, or maybe you have to work on a scheduled day off. Whatever the case, this program is ready to fit your schedule with reliable, progressive child care for children up to 12 years old. Simply call the centralized call centre at 1-866-MY-KIDCO and reserve a space. Each centre has a back-up capacity to care for a number of registered children with little or no notice. Availability of back-up care is on a first-come, first-served basis. But don’t worry, you’ll be offered the next closest Kids & Company centre if your first choice is full. To learn more about our Corporate sponsored programs, please visit our Corporate & Partner Services page. “It used to be that when the phone rang at 7:00 am a feeling of dread rushed through my body because it meant that my caregiver was sick. 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.
