Welcome to Kids & Company Madison Chicago!
Our Learning Environment: This location is located in the heart of West Loop neighborhood. 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. 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!
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 Lavinia Woolridge and I am the Center Director at Kids & Company Madison. I earned my Master’s of Education as well as a Specialist Degree from Erikson Institute. I have worked for over 20 years as an Educator and Educational Leader.
I come from a very close, loving and supportive family. In my spare time, I love to read, travel, bike, exercise and take long walks. I love working at Kids & Company as I get the opportunity to touch the lives of the children and contribute to making their future one that is bright and productive. The team at Kids & Company Madison is amazing and I am always inspired by their hard work and dedication.
I believe that when you are passionate about something that you love, it will shine through. When you love what you do, not only will you make a difference in your students’ lives, but you will make a difference in your own as well. Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you. Come to visit our Madison center for a chance to see how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your family.
