Our Kids & Company Winnipeg centre is conveniently located in Winnipeg’s downtown core and within walking distance of The Forks. The Forks are great for our infant stroller walks — the children love to visit the ducks! We also have the pleasure of having a fantastic on-site chef who not only provides healthy and delicious meals to our children but also teaches them about the preparation process and fundamentals of healthy eating. Our centre is bright and beautiful with large windows in all of the classrooms, creating a warm and nurturing environment. Our infant and preschool playgrounds are great outdoor spaces where the children can play and get physical activity. The centre has a capacity of 80 children and can accommodate Infants to Kindergarten children aged 6.
We have both front and back parking available for the families and staff.
Meet the Director
My name is Navdeep Kaur Brar, and I am the Centre Director of the Kids & Company Winnipeg location. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgian College, Orillia, Ontario. I started with Kids & Company in September 2019 and have been working in child care for 3 years. I am passionate about working in child care because I enjoy spending time with children and appreciate their unique personalities and the way they grow every single day. Kids & Company is s a highly respected company. It provides high-quality care to the children and gives them a range of unique experiences and interactions to reach their optimal growth and development. Kids & Company provides a holistic approach to education through proprietary and emergent programming. It is located in the centre of Winnipeg which is easily accessible for families. Last but not least, it is within walking distance from one of the historical places in Manitoba, “The Forks,” where we often take the children for a walk.
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.
Select Kids & Company locations offer school age programming for children ages 6-12 (Grades 1 – 6). Whether you have a younger child attending a Kids & Company location and you’d like the convenience of picking up your children in the same location or you’d like a program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.
