This Victoria Island location is in the Uptown Mall plaza near the intersection of Douglas St. and Saanich St. We are located in the Uptown neighbourhood that is easily accessible by car or transit, and have plenty of on-site parking for pick-up and drop-off.
Our 10 classrooms can accommodate 133 children from newborn to 5 years old. We offer Infant, Toddler and Preschool programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care.
Inside we have big windows that let in natural light to our spacious rooms. We also have a resource room and a small teacher’s library to inspire creative and enriching activities for the children. Outside is a rooftop playground with a rubber floor, sunshades, a garden area and plenty of fun toys.
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.

My name is Jihye Kim, and I am the Co-Director at Kids & Company Victoria. I attended Suksung University in South Korea where I received my BA in Human Development and Family Studies and BA in Psychology. I have been working in child care for about 6 years, and have been working with Kids & Company since 2018. I love being around children; they make me laugh, learn, and grow while listening to their stories, and watching them explore. I love helping them discover themselves and reach their full potential. I really like working at Kids & Company as I have great colleagues and a wonderful supervisor. We are proud to have multicultural staff and families here at the Victoria location.

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.
