Now accepting applications for full-time and part-time care for 2019. Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in Toronto’s West End in the St. Clair West or Stock Yards village area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company: Kids & Company Stock Yards is a beautiful new centre that has six bright, sunny classrooms with huge windows in every learning space. Our large playground is right outside of our doors so that we can enjoy unstructured play and the great outdoors year round. There is a kitchen on site where your child’s healthy, made from scratch snacks and lunch are prepared. At the end of the day, as you gather your child’s belongings from their dedicated cubbie, they can help themselves to a complementary Grab and Go snack for the ride home. 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. Does your family have an untraditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs! More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
Meet The Director
My name is Kemesha Smith and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Stock Yards centre. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Education from Seneca College, and have been working in the child care field for 18 years. Prior to becoming a Director, I was a teacher in the infant room and then an assistant director. I gained valuable experience and a great understanding of our programs, child development and the daily classroom routines. I enjoy spending time with my husband and I am the mother of four lovely boys, Tziah, Isiah, Amari and Keon. My children really enjoy going on family outings to Canada’s Wonderland, Centre Island, The Ex or any other outdoor park. They are always very active and keep both me and my husband going! In my spare time, I like to take painting lessons, and spend time with my friends and family. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Stock Yards centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
