Our Centre

Why Kids & Company Wellington? We are one of the few Kids & Company locations that offer a Montessori preschool program, run by a Montessori trained educator. 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 (i.e. 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 (i.e. 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 Charlene Maikantis and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Wellington centre . I am a recipient of a diploma in Early Childhood Education from George Brown College  and have 24 years of experience in the child care field. 

To tell you a bit about myself, I have been married for 21 years to my high school sweetheart and we have one son who is 20 years old. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, baking, and spending time with loved ones.

What I love most about our Kids & Company Wellington centre are the amazing teachers and students. They have become like a second family to me and we are always smiling and having fun each and every day!

Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you. I hope you come visit our Wellington centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • 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
    • 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.

  • Preschool
    • Two year olds examine all that they see as they attempt to make sense of their world. In our preschool classrooms, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and discover what the early preschooler’s interests are and encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
