This location provides excellent care and education for children ranging in age from six weeks through six years.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Regarding Open House: Please note our West Quincy location is available on the first Saturday of every month between 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
My name is Caroline Kelly and I am the Director at the Kids & Company West Quincy location. The team here in West Quincy is friendly, nurturing and some of the hardest workers I have met over the years. I have worked here since I started as an assistant teacher in 1998, and worked my way up to the Center Director. I have now been the Director for over 5 years. My husband and I have two young adults, a boy and a girl. Both of our children attended this center from infancy to preschool. We love to take family trips to Martha’s Vineyard in the summertime and travel throughout the U.S. when time allows. In my spare time, I like to scrapbook and make mini photo albums! Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you. Stop by our West Quincy center for a chance to see how Kids & Company can provide quality care and education for your child!
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.
