Chicago Jackson

Our Center

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.

      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 on the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that let 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 Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.

  • Toddlers
    • Smiling child

      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.

      Two-year-olds examine all that they see as they attempt to make sense of their world. In our preschool classrooms, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and discover what the early preschooler’s interests are and encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
