Our Kids & Company Sackville centre is one of the largest child care centres in Atlantic Canada. It can accommodate up to 102 children ranging from infants to school age. We are located directly off the highway making us easily accessible regardless of your destination! Our centre has spacious rooms, high ceilings, and large windows which help to create a fresh and warm learning environment. We also have an outdoor playground where our children love to run, play, and take part in physical activity programming. We have an amazing group of teachers who work hard to bring out the best in each and every child. Did you know we have camp programs for school-age kids? Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here.
Plenty of parking out front as well as at the back entrances of the building.
Meet the Director
My name is Sheila Chisholm and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Sackville centre. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Child and Youth Studies from Mount St Vincent University and have been working in child care for over 20 years. We have a supportive team at the Sackville centre and our teachers bring light and positive energy. We are focused on teamwork, accountability and creating a great environment. I think the best thing about our centre is that we are so personable and have always had such close relationships with our families! We always take the time and go the extra mile. Our open-door policy assures that our families know they can always reach us with a question or concern.
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 offers school-age adventures during school breaks and summer for children 6-12, with select centres offering support during online schooling. We meet each morning at your chosen centre and then undertake daily adventures on-site. We plan themes and outings that are designed to stimulate and excite in a setting that is safe, social and fun. Children who join us for a day, a week or a summer create important friendships and exercise their minds and bodies.
