I am Liela Cayaba, the Centre Director of Kids & Company St. Albert Grandin. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I have been working with Kids & Company since 2016 and in the child care field for over 9 years. I have two lovely, grown-up daughters of my own and a very supportive family. I had been previously teaching for 12 years in the Philippines when I had the amazing opportunity to move to Canada and continue my teaching career. I knew I wanted to work in child care as I love spending time with children and watching them learn, develop and explore the world around them. In my spare time, I like to stay active by attending Zumba classes and golfing. At St. Albert Grandin, we have a very flexible and supportive team that communicates and works well together. I love working with Kids & Company because there is always so much room for growth and development! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, please come for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
