Our Learning Environment: 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 little ones learn and grow. Natural light shines through our huge windows, creating a warm and inviting learning environment inside. Our students enjoy our multiple playgrounds just outside our classroom doors. We also offer an indoor gross-motor space for children to use for physical activity when the weather isn’t cooperating. Infant classrooms provide individualized cribs for babies to cozy up in and plenty of room for tummy-time. Toddler, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are arranged with centres for children to learn by working together with their peers while developing social-emotional skills with the care and love of early childhood teachers.
Our Programs: At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially 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 for learning through play. You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. More than just a daycare, Kids & Company provides a superior educational environment for your child. 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. We offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a healthy and happy work-life balance.

Meet The Director
My name is Natasha Sullivan and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Vancouver West centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2015 and have over 9 years of experience in the child care field. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma from Fanshawe College, with a specialization in Autism and Behavioural Sciences. To tell you more about myself, I come from a very small family and have 1 younger sister. In my spare time I enjoy reading and yoga. I have always been passionate about working with children. My aunt was a Grade 2 Teacher and I always enjoyed helping her set up her classroom! I also grew up in a home daycare where I spent a lot of time with younger children and helped take care of them. Now that you know a bit more about me, it would be my pleasure to meet you and give you a tour of our Vancouver West centre. Come see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide quality care and education for your child.
