kids & COMPANY childcare centers provide high quality daycare and back up emergency childcare spaces. As architects for kids & COMPANY since January 2003, Scott Shields Architects have created a “brand” image and design standards for the centers and have been architects for all new centers. To date, over 50 bright and cheerful centers have been built, complete with outdoor playgrounds, with others to follow. Sites for centers continue to be scouted across North America in convenient locations as close as possible to parents’ work or home.
Design standards are continuously refined to provide healthy nurturing safe environments for infants through school age children at each center. Optimum use of space and staffing resources, along with capital and operations costs are carefully studied at a feasibility stage for each new center.
