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 an nontraditional 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.
INTRODUCING STREAM PRESCHOOL Our Tamarack location is offering 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.

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 me and my husband 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 neighborhood 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!
