This location is on the second floor of the beautiful and historical St. Andrew’s Church in downtown Toronto, near the intersection of Simcoe St. and Wellington St. W. We are easily accessible by transit, and parents that drive are able to park in the public lot right behind the church.
Our classrooms can accommodate 37 children from a few months to 12 years old. Each classroom is also equipped with a webcam so that caregivers can keep up to date on their child’s day. The outdoor play area gets lots sunlight and allows children to enjoy unstructured play year-round. We also love to take our infants on stroller walks around notable sites like David Pecaut Square, Roy Thompson Hall and the CN Tower.
Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and School Age programs are available through full-time, part-time, and backup care. Where possible, we also offer flex care at this location. Flex care allows you to pick the number of days you’d like your child to attend per week, and even lets you split the time between locations – a convenient option for those that work partially at home and partially in an office.
We provide our children with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Learn more here.

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!
Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 18 months. Infants learn about the world around them through their senses, so exploration is critical to their development. Nurturing educators support the children while they take in their surroundings, encouraging them to experience everything the classroom offers; be it creative art, exploring with blocks, listening to songs or engaging in story-time. Our infant program encourages children to follow their own established routines, while becoming comfortable and secure in a new group setting.
Kids & Company’s Toddler program is for children between the ages of roughly 18 months and 2.5 years. Toddlers are mobile and eager to explore their environment. As they strive for independence, our educators use an Emergent curriculum approach to learning that supports each child’s individuality. Some of the most important learning outcomes of our toddler program are language development, socialization, self-help skills, and the development of fine and gross motor skills.
Kids & Company’s Preschool program is designed for children between the ages of roughly 2.5 - 5 years. Our educators interact, observe and interpret the interests of our children to encourage discoveries. Our Preschool program provides a foundation for developing greater independence and problem-solving skills; the program integrates new concepts into our children’s world view, promotes sharing and mutual respect, and prepares them for Kindergarten.
Kids & Company’s School Age program accepts children from 5 - 12 years old (Grade 1 - 6) and is available at select locations. Programs include Before and After School Care, School Break Programming, and Summer Camp. Classroom space exists for smaller groups to gather, and activities are designed to meet the needs of varying developmental levels, touching on arts, science, math, drama, imaginative play, and physical fitness. Educators are also available to provide academic support for children that wish to do their homework during After School Care.
