Kids & Company Vancouver West centre is located at the corner of West 6th Avenue and Laurel Street, across from a lovely park and the sea wall. We are only a short walk away from Granville Island, which is a special excursion for our preschoolers. Our centre has seven classrooms and can accommodate up to 100 children. Each classroom contains educational materials, age-appropriate toys, and child-sized equipment to help our little ones learn and grow. Natural light shines through our large windows, creating a warm and inviting learning environment inside. Our students enjoy our multiple playgrounds just outside of our classroom doors. We also offer an indoor gross-motor space for children to use for physical activity when the weather isn’t cooperating. Subsidies are accepted in British Columbia for families who qualify.

Unloading available in the front of the building for 30 mins or clients that don't have a FOB can call of the centre and someone will meet them at 6th & Laurel for the Parkade.
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.
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 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.
Kids & Company runs comprehensive kindergarten programs designed for children who are 4 or 5 years old (junior and senior kindergarten age) to prepare them for Grade 1. Using emergent curriculum techniques to adapt to the children’s’ interests and skills, we set a foundation of early literacy, numeracy, artistry, and the construction of relationships and ideas. Kindergarten programs are integrated into full-time child care to provide convenience and continuity.
Select Kids & Company locations offer school age programming for children ages 6-12 (Grades 1 – 6). Whether you have a younger child attending a Kids & Company location and you’d like the convenience of picking up your children in the same location or you’d like a program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.
