Our Kids & Company Victoria centre is located near Uptown Mall at Douglas Street and Saanich Street. We have 10 classrooms and can accommodate up to 133 children. Our centre is always filled with smiling faces, both from our children and our fantastic staff. It is a place where learning is equally fun as it is enriching, and where we take both pleasure and pride in seeing each child grown and transition through our programs.
Subsidies are accepted in British Columbia for families who qualify. Contact the Centre Director or click here for more information.

My name is Grace Louis, and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Victoria. I attended Algonquin College where I received a diploma for Early Childhood Education with an Infant and Toddler Specialization and a Certificate in Special Needs Education. I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Music from the University of Waterloo. I have been working in child care for over 30 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2012. I knew I wanted to work in child care my whole life because I love being around children. My favourite thing about the Kids & Company Victoria location is the open communication, respect, and integrity we have for everyone. Kids & Company enables me to help families and their children, and help educators to reach their full potential. I hope when people see our centre, they see that we have your child’s best interests at heart. We know that even the smallest things could potentially be a positive and important aspect in their development.
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.
