Why Kids & Company Wellington? Our centre is in the heart of the financial district and we’re accessible through the underground PATH which makes winter more bearable for our little ones. We are close to many fun and educational Toronto destinations that are perfect for field trips (e.g. St. Lawrence Farmer’s Market, Hockey Hall of Fame, CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium etc.). We have 9 classrooms and can accommodate up to 115 students ranging from infants to school age. Our centre is bright and colourful with large windows in every classroom creating a warm and nurturing learning environment.
Our days are busy at Wellington, whether we are practicing our letters and sounds in our Alpha-Mania literacy program, jumping, running and skipping in our Munchkinetics movement program or learning about a new artist in our Mini Masters Art program. As you consider whether Kids & Company Wellington is the right place for your child, know that we work very hard to support your child and your family. Our company is a model for families of today. The working parent already has a busy schedule, so our constant support and services that we provide makes this process an easier transition for everyone involved. We have family events throughout the year (e.g. Date Nights, Santa Parade, Zoo Days etc.) that give our children and families opportunities to interact and get to know one another.
Did you know we have camp programs for school age kids? Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here.
Meet The Director
My name is Stephanie Tavares and I am a Director at the Kids & Company Wellington Centre. I attended Ryerson University where I obtained by Early Childhood Education Diploma along with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. I knew I wanted to work in the child care field when I used to volunteer in the before and after school program while I was in high school.To tell you a bit about myself, I have been engaged for a little over a year now and we are getting everything organized for our traditional European wedding. I come from a very big family and we are always around each other planning trips and things to do to spend quality time together. In my spare time I enjoy traveling to new places, visiting friends and trying new foods. The Wellington centre and team are like our second family, we are always smiling and working together to make the centre better! The one thing I love most about working at Kids & Company is being able to make the children smile everyday.
My name is Cheryl Jonas and I am also a Director at the Kids & Company Wellington centre. I have over 10 years of experience in child care and am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma. To give you some fun facts about myself, I am a single mother of two girls. My family consists of my two beautiful daughters Jailah and Jahmila! In my spare time I enjoy taking the girls to the park, bike riding, and indoor playgrounds.
Now that you know more about us, we would love to meet you. We hope you come visit our Wellington centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!
