Are you exploring early education and child care options for your family in Sylvan Lake, Alberta? Kids & Company has a beautiful centre in Sylvan Lake that is licensed for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children — up to a total of 92 children. Being one of the few daycares in Sylvan Lake, we are a pillar in the community. The centre uses 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 and 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 early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance. Subsidies are accepted in Alberta for families who qualify. Contact the Centre Director or click here for more information from Alberta Child and Youth Services. Did you know we have camp programs for school-age kids? Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here.

Meet The Director
Hi, my name is Tara Gardner and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Sylvan Lake. I have a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from the College of the North Atlantic. I have over 19 years of experience in childcare! From a young age, I knew this was the field I wanted to be in; I loved babysitting and volunteering at daycare centres. As for me, I am married to my husband Kaleb. We have three handsome boys. Ethan who has down syndrome and is so amazing and twin boys – Kale and Kasey. I love being a mom. It’s challenging but so rewarding. In my spare time, I like to read, write, bike, swim, camp and go for long walks and road trips. My favourite thing about our centre is the brightness it has when you walk in. The staff are awesome and we have a wonderful team. People say it takes a village to raise a family and the same goes for Kids & Company. We work as a team to enhance child development and provide opportunities for children to further their potential. At Kids & Company, we are so happy that we have the privilege of helping families in our community. We provide a caring, inclusive and stimulating environment that allows children to make choices and explore their interests. Building bonds with each child is very important, it helps to build a trusting, caring relationship. I would love to meet you! Come by our Sylvan Lake Centre for a visit and see all that Kids & Company has to offer.
