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.
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.
