Welcome to Kids & Company Chicago Jackson!
Infant classrooms provide nursing areas for mothers, individualized cribs for babies to cozy up in and plenty of room for tummy-time.
Toddler, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are arranged with centers for children to learn by working together with their peers while developing social-emotional skills with the care and love of early childhood teachers.
Our Programs: At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our learning programs. They include our 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.
Does your family have an untraditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs. We offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a healthy and happy work-life balance.

Meet The Director
My name is Katrina Cottrell and I am the Center Director at Kids & Company, Chicago Jackson. I have been employed with Kids & Company as an Assistant Director since 2018 and have been in the Early Childhood Education field since 2012. Throughout the years, I have had the luxury of working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education: Child and Family Services from Southern Illinois University in 2012. Five years later, I decided to further my education and career. I attended National Louis University where I received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Administration.
I believe that the early years of life are the most important and I am here to make sure the children are provided with the care and education they need to prepare them for adulthood. I look forward to building strong relationships with the families at the Jackson location.
Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Please come for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
