The Wellington location is in the heart of the financial district, on the second floor of an office building near the intersection of University Ave and Wellington St W. We are lucky to be accessible through the underground PATH, which can make winter commutes more bearable for you and your children. We are just around the corner from Union Station and there is a parking garage behind our building on Piper St. This central location also means we can go on field trips to notable places like the Hockey Hall of Fame, CN Tower and Ripley’s Aquarium.
Our centre has 9 classrooms that can accommodate up to 115 children from a few months old to six-year-olds. Caregivers will have access to our password-protected webcams to keep up to date on their child’s day. We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten programs with the option of full-time, part-time, backup care, or – in some cases – flex care. Flex care allows you to pick the number of days you’d like your child to attend per week, and even lets you split the time between locations – a convenient option for those that work partially at home and partially in an office.
We provide our children 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.

Meet the Director
I am Samantha Del Rio, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Wellington. I attended George Brown College where I received a diploma for Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for 9 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2015. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher since before I could remember. I often enjoyed being able to help my peers learn and grow just as many amazing teachers have helped me. I began volunteering with the local library’s youth group and elementary school during my high school years, and I haven’t looked back since. In my spare time, I enjoy going on long hikes and exploring nature trails with my dog. I also enjoy finding new places to eat with my friends and occasionally, play video games. My favourite thing about the Kids & Company Wellington location is how everyone is always eager to welcome new families and members into our child care family. I hope when people see our Wellington centre, they can see how flexible and accommodating we are. We are here to help you find the best care for your children’s needs, meeting their unique requirements and allowing them to take the lead in their own learning. Now that you know a little more about me, I hope to see you and your family soon!
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.
