Wellington

Our Centre

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. We are a proud sponsor of PeerTutor.

Meet The Director

My name is Stephanie Torres and I am a Director at the Kids & Company Wellington Centre. I attended Ryerson University where I obtained my 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 travelling 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 every day.   My name is Jessica Paton and I am a Director at the Kids & Company Wellington Centre. I received my Undergraduate Degree in Child and Family Studies through Ryerson University, a Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Fanshawe College and an Ontario College Graduate Certificate Supervision and Administration in Early Learning and Care Programs through Sheridan College. I am a proud RECE who has been working with children and families for the past 10 years, in both Waldorf and Montessori settings. My mother ran a daycare in our home growing up and at the young age of 8, I knew I had a natural ability to connect with little ones. To tell you a bit about myself, I have a big Italian family on my mother’s side and Scottish-French Family on my father’s side. My heart is the fullest when spending quality time back home with my supportive parents, making pasta and cookies with my Nonna and enjoying home-cooked meals with both sides of my family. That being said, I also truly love my busy Toronto life I share with my wonderful boyfriend Jon. I spend my free time singing, playing electric and acoustic guitar, writing and recording music, poetry, practising yoga and mindfulness, playing volleyball and spending time under a tree, in a park or by the water. My favourite thing about working at the Wellington centre is that the staff are so welcoming and kind, always willing to lend a hand! Now that you know more about us, we would love to meet you. We hope you come to visit our Wellington centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!

      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
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      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

      All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them.
