Chicago South Loop

Our Center

Welcome to Kids & Company South Loop Chicago!

Our Learning Environment: This location is located in the heart of South Loop neighborhood at State and Roosevelt. We’re within walking distance of about anything you could ever want, including many of our parents’ homes and work, which is why many of our families walk their children to our center each day. We have eight classrooms that can accommodate over 100 children daily. Each classroom contains educational materials, age appropriate toys and child-sized equipment to help little ones learn and grow.

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 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.

Did you know we have camp programs for school age kids? Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here

Meet The Director

Hello, I am Tracey Ormond and I have been working in the childcare field for 16 years. I have experience as an Infant, Pre-School, Kindergarten and School-age Teacher. I also worked as a Center Director for 5 years with another childcare company. During my time as Director, my team and I accomplished our NAEYC Accreditation along with our Gold Quality Circle. I am the proud mom of 2 college bound students. The joy of my day starts the minute I step foot into this building. Even though I am a Director In Training, the best part of my day is still interacting personally with the children. I am excited about this new journey I am on with Kids & Company. I am looking forward to building great relationships and being a part of the educational growth for the students we service. Like always, I intend to bring the very best of who I am to the children, parents and staff every single day. In closing, I would like to share an inspirational quote that was told to me by my 6th grade teacher that still sums me up to this day.

“Good, better, best, I will never let it rest, until my good is better and my better is best.”
Tracey

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • 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
    • 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.

  • Preschool
    • 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.
