Our Centre

Our Kids & Company Winnipeg centre is conveniently located in Winnipeg’s downtown core and within walking distance of The Forks. 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 practice their Munchkinetics physical activity program. The Forks are perfect for our infant stroller walks and river walks for our older children who love to visit and feed the ducks. We also have the pleasure of having a fantastic on-site chef, Ashley, who not only provides healthy and delicious meals to our children, but also teaches them about the preparation process and fundamentals of healthy eating.

Meet The Director

My name is Mary Ellen Smith and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Winnipeg centre. I have a degree in Mathematics from the University of Waterloo, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto and a level three Early Childhood Education degree from Sheridan College. I also attended the Institute of Montessori and received certification on Casa and Elementary Levels. I started working at Kids & Company in 2018 and have over 30 years of experience in the child care field. To tell you a bit more about myself, I have been married for 29 years and have two adult daughters. In my spare time I enjoy walking, hiking, swimming, sewing, needle work, scrap-booking and reading! I love working at the Winnipeg centre because our families are amazing and our team works hard to make our center a warm, fun and inviting place for the children! 

Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Winnipeg centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • 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
    • 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.

    • 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.
