Are you exploring early education and child care options for your family in Sherwood Park, Alberta? Kids & Company has a beautiful centre that is licensed for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children — up to a total of 157 children. The centre uses 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 and exploration and creative play throughout our day.
More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
I am Brittany Megennis, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Sherwood Park. I have been working in child care for 15 years and I have a diploma in Social Work and Early Learning and Child Care. I have been working for Kids & Company since 2019. I have always had a passion for working and caring for children. I started my career path in child care very early at the age of 16. I have a boy and a girl of my own, who keep me very busy. I enjoy camping, spending time with my family, and playing ball hockey to stay active. At Kids & Company Sherwood Park, we are all passionate about what we do, we are a family and we support and care about each other. Our Centre employees have been working together for many years now. We seek to gain connections and relationships with not only the children in our centres but the whole families as well. Now that you know a bit more about me, come to Sherwood Park so I can meet you and your family! Please come for a visit so you can 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 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.
