Smart Tech

Our Centre

Our Kids & Company Smart Tech centre is located directly beside the University of Calgary campus in the Smart Technologies building. Most of the children in our child care centre have parents who work upstairs at Smart Tech, which coupled with our welcoming community, creates a natural family-like environment. Everyone knows one another by name, and families are regularly engaged with our centre activities. At Smart Tech, our children love to learn using our interactive Smart Boards in the preschool rooms and adore playing in our huge playground outside. We often visit the pond nearby where our children love to feed the ducks and play in the open green space.

We know children who sing, dance and explore music regularly perform better in academic settings and tend to have higher self-esteem and social skills. That’s why we believe in introducing it at an early age and run a daily music program that involves interactive songs, rhythmic expression, games and movement. At this centre, we are also affiliated with Together with Heather Music. Heather and her musicians join us each week – on rotating days so our part-time children see them – bringing along age-appropriate tools like shakers, rattles, ukuleles and more. With a background in musical therapy and a successful career in creating children’s albums, this partner complements our music program perfectly. https://rattleandstrum.com/together-with-heather-music.

Meet The Director

My name is Sarah Marsh and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Smart Tech. I have a Bachelor of Education and Early Childhood Studies. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2015. I am married and have two young daughters — my family is my everything. In my spare time, I love to go camping with my family, running, watching movies and trying new foods. What I love most about the Smart Tech centre is how all of the staff work together as a team. We are always there to help each other and provide support for our team members. All of the Smart Tech staff are incredibly dedicated and the children are always their first priority. We have a fantastic team of teachers who are dedicated to providing a warm learning environment for our children. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Smart Tech centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

Programs Offered

  • Infants

      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.

    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      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.
