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 kindergarten. 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.
We have courtesy Parking for parents dropping off and picking up for 30 minutes under our building.
Meet The Director
My name is Nataliia Nakonechna and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Wellington. I graduated from a Pedagogical College in Ukraine and then moved to Canada in 2016 and continued to study Early Childhood Education at George Brown College where I received a diploma.
My journey at Kids & Company started in November 2018 as an Early Childhood Educator and my dedication has brought me to a Director’s position. I have now been working in child care for over 8 years. From my youngest years, I always loved taking care of children and interacting with them; I knew that this was the career for me.
In my spare time, I tutor school-aged children, enjoy reading books and I am really fond of learning languages. I also like long walks and spending time with friends exploring new places.
The most important message I have for the Kids & Company families is that we are here to ensure your little one is getting the best care possible. We are always here and willing to tailor your child care to your family’s unique requirements and needs. The Wellington Educators are fantastic and have such a strong passion for early childhood education.
Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I 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 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.
For the time being, our in-centre birthday party and other live events will temporarily not be available. If you require any information on future bookings or have any questions, please reach out to Christie firstname.lastname@example.org
