Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, our Scotia Plaza centre is at Yonge and King St. West. Though it is a busy area, as soon as you walk into our centre you immediately find yourself in a warm, engaging and nurturing environment. We have four large playrooms to accommodate our children and our own separate entrance. Each classroom is filled with bright colours, natural sunlight and the smiling faces of both our children and teachers. Even though we are in the downtown core our centre is quiet and secluded. Our great outdoor space is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the streets and allows our children to enjoy the sunshine and our wonderful toys. Being in Toronto, we are fortunate enough to be very close to many different fun and educational destinations for unique field trips (e.g. Lawrence Farmer’s Market, Hockey Hall of Fame, CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium etc.). Here at Scotia Plaza, we are one big family! We have a fantastic team of teachers who work hard to bring out the best in each child and create a positive learning environment for our children to thrive in. Our proprietary programs at Kids & Company including Alpha Mania (pre-literacy), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun!
We have 3 drop off parking space on Grand Opera Lane which is accessible from Adelaide St between Yonge and Bay.
Meet the Director
My name is Anita Baidya and I am the Director at the Kids & Company’s Scotia Plaza centre. I am a recipient of a RECE Degree and an MBA. I began my career in child care over 28 years ago and started with Kids & Company in April 2012. After having my daughter, I knew that a career in child care was what I wanted to do. My wonderful family includes my husband Samor, and my daughter Satabdi. In my spare time, I love to travel and explore new places whenever possible.
I love that our Scotia Plaza centre is in the heart of downtown and many parents work very close by and can even drop in for a visit during the day. Especially when parents are having a difficult day, a quick hug from their child makes things much better! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you. I hope you come to visit our Scotia Plaza 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.
