St. Andrew’s Church

Our Centre

Our Kids & Company St. Andrew’s Church centre is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, near the intersection of Simcoe Street and Wellington Street West. We are situated on the second floor of the beautiful and historical St. Andrew’s Church, close by to the CN Tower, Roy Thompson Hall and David Pecaut Square, where we love to take our infants for stroller rides. Our centre can accommodate up to 37 children ranging from infant to school age. We are one of the smaller Kids & Company locations and our centre offer a cozy, intimate and nurturing learning environment. Our classrooms are bright and sunny with huge windows looking into our learning spaces. We have a great outdoor playground where our students can enjoy unstructured play and the outdoors year-round. At Kids & Company, we use 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 & exploration and creative play throughout our day.  Whether our children are participating in various proprietary programs, enjoying nutritious and delicious meals from our Kidco Kitchen chefs, or getting active outside, our centre is always filled with busy and smiling faces from both our children and teachers!

Meet the Director

I am Yoosun Im, the Centre Director of Kids & Company’s St. Andrew’s Church centre. I attended George Brown College, where I received a diploma in Early Childhood Education with Honors. I have been working in child care for seven years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2019. I knew that I wanted a career in Early Childhood Education because I love providing children with meaningful opportunities to develop their social, emotional, linguistic, cognitive, and motor skills through an emergent curriculum. The Kids & Company St. Andrew’s Church location is unique for various reasons. One reason that stuck out to me is how the centre promotes inclusivity. We celebrate diverse events worldwide to encourage children, family and staff members’ sense of belonging and well-being. I am so passionate about working with Kids & Company because it associates with various partners in the community. Educators and parents can access the resources to get extra support to better help our children grow. Now that you know a little more about me, I hope to see you and your family soon!

      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
    • 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.
