Last week I had the chance to take a tour of the new Kids & Company childcare centre that is opening up in the Jagare Ridge community.
Kids & Company offers high-end childcare with several childcare centres in and around Edmonton, throughout Alberta as well as across Canada in B.C., Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec.
Why Your Kids (And You) Will Love Kids & Company
The Jagare Ridge childcare centre is located at 201, 14246 – 28 Avenue S.W. on the second floor and the first thing that you will notice is that it’s larger than it looks from the outside. With space to provide childcare for up to 108 children in 8 classrooms from infant to school age, there are both part-time and full-time options available.
Programs for infants up to school-age children are offered at each of the childcare centres which include Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement). With a focus on the play through learning philosophy, it’s one of the many reasons why kids and parents love Kids & Company.
The whole centre features large windows in each of the rooms which bring in plenty of natural light. There is also a common theme across all rooms (and all Kids & Company locations) which incorporates bright colours, toys that facilitate learning through play, and wooden furniture.
This helps to keep all of the sites a familiar setting whether children are accompanying their family through travel or switching centres due to relocation.
Kids & Company also has its own Kidco Kitchen where all of their menus and recipes are developed with a nutritionist. Menus incorporate diverse options which change with the seasons, using local produce options, exploring meals from different cultures, and more.

Did you know that Kids & Company offers birthday party packages where you can host your child’s birthday at one of their childcare centres? In 2 weeks I’ll be hosting Finn’s 4th Birthday party at one of them, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
