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.

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.
