Tamarack

Our Centre

Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Tamarack neighbourhood? Our Kids & Company Edmonton Tamarack centre is located near the intersection of 17 Street and Tamarack Way NW, easily accessible via Anthony Henday Drive or Whitemud Drive NW. Our centre can accommodate up to 100 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Our classrooms are bright and sunny with huge windows looking into our learning spaces. Our large playground is right outside of our doors so that we can enjoy unstructured play and the great outdoors year-round. 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 a non-traditional 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.

STREAM PRESCHOOL Our Tamarack location offers the STREAM preschool program (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, math). In addition to our core pillars, the STREAM preschool program features: an emphasis on STEM learning, a Montessori approach including observations of the child, individual liberties and preparation of the environment, and elements from Kids & Company standard curriculum including Mini Masters (artistry), Alpha-Mania (early literacy) and Munchkinetics programming (movement). Children suited for the program are those with curiosity about numbers, how things work, mechanics and construction, and a sense of independence and self-direction.

Meet The Director

My name is Margie Ymana and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Tamarack centre. I have a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education. I have been at Kids & Company since 2014 and have over 20 years of experience in the child care field. To tell you more about myself,  I have a beautiful family who makes me happy all the time. My husband Benjie is very supportive of me and our son Brayden Benj Ymana is so adorable. My mother in law Gloria is also here in Canada, she helps us taking care of Brayden whenever my husband and I are at work. She is a big help to our family. I am forever thankful for the kind of family that I have! In my spare time, I love watching movies with my family. I also enjoy eating out with close friends and listening to acoustic music. I have a great team at the Tamarack centre, we all help and support each other in order to provide excellent care for the children. We are located in an up-and-coming neighbourhood on the east side of the city, minutes from Meadows Recreation Center and within walking distance to some nice shops and amenities. It’s a beautiful facility with lots of natural light and new equipment to explore. Now that you know a bit about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Please come for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

      At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.

  • Toddlers
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.

      All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.

  • STREAM Preschool Program
    • STREAM preschool program at daycare

      Kids & Company introduced STREAM programming (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and math) into our preschool classrooms to ensure educators have the most progressive STEM tools and training available to facilitate learning through our emergent curriculum approach. STREAM is not just a set of activities or one aspect of our program, but rather integrates with our curriculum approach with an eye to sparking curiosity, experimentation and self-led discovery in our children. Our educators work extremely hard to observe each child, identify their skills, interests and ways of learning, and then build opportunities for them to develop and acquire knowledge through multiple avenues. STREAM is about asking probing questions and facilitating the child in their journey of questioning, testing, and accumulating knowledge and skills. In a handful of centres, we have STREAM preschool rooms open for children whose interests heavily focus on STEM areas. However, STREAM is an integral part of all of our preschool programming in all regions.
