Vision

Kids U inspires open collaboration to create a student-centered, inquiry based learning environment that cultivates enthusiastic and globally-minded individuals. To provide quality child care, preschool, and kindergarten programs that build strong brains necessary for lifelong success.

                                                                                         

Spacious Classrooms For Reggio Inspired Learning

With two large, sunlit classrooms to teach our Reggio-inspired Right Brain curriculum, our junior preschoolers and preschoolers will have plenty of space to move around, learn creatively and be active! Kids U is the only preschool and childcare centre in Strathmore to offer early childhood education that focuses on brain development through play, as well as the physical growth and health of our students!

Peaceful Outdoor Play Space

Our outdoor play space gives the children opportunity to enjoy the fresh air and play outside daily. Although gated and securely locked, the outdoor area is spacious and open, with naturally-inspired playscapes overlooking nature and the building’s surroundings.

Learning Through Generations

Connected to the Sagewood Seniors Community, Kids U Strathmore has partnered with Age Care to provide our students with an enriching opportunity to learn from their elders. The children get to participate in fun, educational and curriculum-based activities with their neighbouring resident, a unique learning experience in itself!

Healthy Meals For Healthy Brains

Our centre collaborates with Age Care’s kitchen staff to provide children with healthy, nutritious meals that are freshly prepared in house. All meals are approved by the Canada Food Guide, ensuring the best ingredients for the Age Care residents and our growing students!

Our Brain Immersion Curriculum:

Kids U offers a customized individual curriculum that is continuously being re-assessed. The proprietary executive function assessment we implement allows us to design a curriculum to maximize the learning capacity of an individual child’s left brain, right brain and movement.

Left Brain

Our left brain classrooms are based on Maria Montessori’s method of teaching, where children are given the independence and freedom to learn at their own pace. The environment is work-based and acts as the third teacher. This allows our students to absorb concepts and develop concentration and skills through the practical life activities and prepared materials that surround them.

Right Brain

Our right brain environment is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education, where creativity, imagination, social skills and children’s interests determine the curriculum. The learning is child-directed, with teachers and families as collaborators. We design the care, play and learning environments to communicate what we believe about children — that they are mighty learners; creative, resourceful and capable.

Movement

Our specialized movement curriculum gets children on track to a healthy and active lifestyle. Through group games, sports, basic movement skills, nutritional guidance and plenty of outdoor exercise, our gym classes promote both a healthy body and a healthy mind.

Nutrition Matters at Kids U

Building brains is about so much more than just education. At Kids U we know that nutrition is an important factor in a child’s development. Which is why we continuously strive to provide healthy, balanced, and nutritious meals for our children.

*Menus vary depending on centre. Centres attached to AgeCare buildings are provided with menus and meals from the AgeCare kitchen.

Family Rates and Discounts:

*Minimum 6 months for Bridgeland families

Although we realize the cost to send multiple children is high we do not provide a family discount on application, material, or monthly fees. The fees are set to maintain the quality and integrity of the program. However, to assist families with multiple children we provide priority application for siblings. At Kids U’s, if you pay for the whole year tuition, minimum 10 months, you get 10% off.

Q Do you accept subsidy?

Yes, we do accept subsidy.

Q Do you accommodate children with food allergies and restrictions?

Our current menus reflect cultural diversity to stimulate a broader palate, and our cooks use local and organic produce whenever possible. We even provide a separate menu for children who are vegetarian, and attention to children with allergies is of high importance.

Q What age group do you provide child care for?

We provide child care from ages 19 months to 6 years.

Q Do you support children with special needs?
