Welcome to Kids & Company Schaumburg, located directly off Higgins Road in Schaumburg. This location includes 11 classrooms providing excellent care and education for children ranging in age from six weeks through to six years.
Natural light shines through to the learning environment inside, and children are able to enjoy two gated playgrounds outside; One for younger children working on their motor capabilities and another for older children confidently ready to climb and run!
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our learning programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Our location also offers 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
Welcome to Kids & Company Schaumburg. My goal is to partner with you and your child in their journey through early learning. As a parent myself, I understand that selecting a quality childcare program is a HUGE decision. We are very fortunate to be in an amazing area that welcomes families and encourages involvement within the community. Kids & Company provides proprietary age and developmentally appropriate curriculum. Your child will have a variety of opportunities to learn, play, explore and grow. Imagination and creativity are also encouraged in all the activities and programming. I have always held a special place in my heart for the Early Childhood Field. I have been in the educational field for over 30 years. I started as a teacher in a Preschool program right out of High School. I then worked in the Public School system and found myself drawn back into the Early Childhood field. I worked as a Kindergarten Teacher, Assistant Director and found my home as a Director, leading amazing Educators and making a difference to many families. In the midst of my career, my job that I am proud the most of was becoming a mother. My son attended the Early Childhood programs and I am proud to say, that he is a wonderful young man today. Education has always been a passion for me and I wouldn’t change it for the world. As I was growing as an Educator, I attended Oakton Community College and earned my Early Childhood Certification. I then went to Roosevelt University where I am completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Education. In my personal time, I enjoy family fun. I have been lucky to have been married to my husband for over 20 years. We focus on spending time together with our son just enjoying life every day. Our son keeps us busy and we love to head to the city to enjoy museums, the Zoo, or just a walk around the lakefront. I enjoy reading and find myself a book worm. You will most likely find us at the library on the weekends. Overall, I just enjoy making memories and look at each day as a present, just waiting for me to open. Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you. Stop by our Schaumburg center for a chance to see how Kids & Company can provide quality 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.
