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 5 years. We are one of the smaller Kids & Company locations and our centre offers 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

My name is Grace Kwon and I am the Director at the Kids & Company St. Andrew’s centre. I am a recipient of an ECE Degree from Seneca College. I have over 18 years of child care experience and have been working with Kids & Company since 2016. Outside the world of child care, I enjoy spending time with my family. I was born in South Korea and immigrated to Canada when I was 5 years old with my parents and younger sister. My family and I have a very close relationship. We value spending quality time together and enjoy the traditions we have created. I met my significant other over 5 years ago, and after many months of struggling to become pregnant, we were blessed with our baby boy Julian. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our St. Andrew’s centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • day care center

      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.

  • Preschool
    • child looking through a magnifying glass

      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.

  • Kindergarten Programs

      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.
