Victoria Sopik, CEO and co-founder of Kids & Company wants to meet you and your family. Open since 2012 in Winnipeg, Kids & Co. have 44 childcare centres across Canada and are filling a much-needed void in the childcare sector–flexible, reliable, and structured childcare solutions and programming.
You and your family are invited to an Open House this Wednesday evening, February 6. (Please see event poster below). Kids & Company’s Winnipeg location offers a brand-new childcare facility that features an on-site chef (they provide all meals and can accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions), flexible hours (full/part time and emergency care available), and proprietary education programs such as Alpha-Mania, Mini-Masters and Munchkinetics as well as Music, French, and Sign Language for infants.
Kids & Co. Open House
“I can’t be the only person who needs reliable childcare?!”
Victoria Sopik and her business partner Jennifer Nashmi had a vision to create a child care model that previously was non-existent in Canada.
Sopik, herself a mother of eight, always planned to be a working parent. Her inherent understanding of the need for flexibility in her own children’s care and her own work life made becoming an entrepreneur in the business of child care a somewhat natural evolution.
With Nashmi, Sopik set out to create child care that spoke to the realities of working mothers and that previously didn’t exist in Canada. Kids & Company offers full and part-time childcare, emergency back-up child care for days that the child’s school is closed or if the child’s regular caregiver is ill. By guaranteeing spaces to employees of their corporate clients, which include some of Canada’s largest private businesses and public organizations, Kids & Company has eliminated the stress and aggravation that takes its toll on working parents as they try to secure child care and handle the unexpected. There are no wait lists or lotteries. If a company is a client, the employees of that company have access to worry-free, high quality childcare. Period.
Now with 44 locations across Canada, Kids & Company even gives working parents the ability to bring their children on business trips so they can spend time together in the evening, knowing that safe child care is available to them in that city during the day.
Rapidly becoming the new corporate benefit for retention and recruitment, worry-free, corporate-sponsored childcare means working parents can be their best at work and know their children’s needs are being cared for thanks to an employer who “gets it”.
In a landmark ruling this week, the federal government has made major strides. But we still have a long way to go.
See you at the Open House!
