I am Junior Frater, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Sylvan Lake. I have a level 3 Education diploma. I have been working in child care for 6 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2019. After my high school years, I knew I wanted to be a teacher so I could help others, and make a difference in people’s lives. I have a wife and two young boys of my own, who are always full of energy! In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, fishing, camping and listening to music. The Kids & Company Sylvan Lake location is located in the beautiful community of Sylvan Lake, surrounded by the Lake and nearby parks. What makes our centre unique is our team. We are a very dedicated and creative team. We work to enhance child development and provide opportunities for children to grow their potential. Kids & Company is the best because they provide a lot of opportunity for growth and personal development. I have seen myself succeed and flourish at Kids & Company, constantly learning, and becoming a better version of myself. I hope when people see our centre, they will see how we are always striving to create an environment that is caring, inclusive, and stimulating, allowing our children to make choices and explore their own interests. 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.
