This Vancouver location is across the street from Charleson Park and the sea wall at the corner of West 6th Ave. and Laurel St. We are easily accessible by car or transit, with FOB-access parking available for pick-up and drop-off.
Our 7 classrooms can accommodate 101 children in our Infant, Toddler, Preschool and School Age programs. School Age programs include Before and After School care, Summer Break care, and Summer Camp. Children located in schools nearby are walked by staff after school ends. All other programs are available with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care.
We have a very spacious interior with lots of natural light and gross motor rooms that allow children to get physically active while inside. Outside, we have multiple play areas that the children love with sandboxes, a wood chipped area, slides and a wooden playhouse. We are also only a short walk away from Granville Island, which is a special excursion for our preschoolers.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. This means classrooms are equipped with educational toys and Early Childhood Educators are there to readily guide children as their interests emerge. Classrooms are also equipped with password-protected webcams that parents can access throughout the day.
Children are provided with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Learn more here.

Meet the Director
My name is Harpreet Kaur Brar and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Vancouver location! I attended Sprott Shaw College in Surrey, BC where I received a diploma for Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for 4 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2018. My favourite thing about the Kids & Company North Vancouver location is how we go above and beyond to ensure the children’s safety is the most important thing — which would not be possible without the amazing staff we have. Kids & Company uses emergent curriculum — a learning-through-play philosophy. This allows the children to think and choose on their own, which provides a superior educational environment. Our educators are so dedicated to the care and development of our children.
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.
