Who We Are

Located in Walnut Grove, British Columbia, Kids in the Grove Inc. is a fully licensed and comprehensive care centre for children ages 3 to 12. After seeing a need for daycare that was convenient for working families, Kim Wishinski, sought out to start her own daycare and afterschool program for her local neighbourhood. What started as Junior Kids Club in 2002, is now a growing community running out of Topham and West Langley Elementary Schools offering pre-school, junior kindergarten, and school age care programs.

What We Do

Kids in the Grove exists to help children and their guardians succeed by providing an inclusive, development led, and fun childcare environment. Using a wide variety of activities and key learning tools, our curriculum introduces a world of exploration through education, play, and creativity.

Why Kids in the Grove

Our care is unique in that we embrace a family dynamic in our daily operations. It is our priority to offer a safe and nurturing environment that supports social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. We recognize every child’s unique way of learning and adapt our activities to meet each specific need. Most importantly, we provide your child with a fun and encouraging setting to build confidence and positive self-esteem.

What Our Families are Saying

“At Kids in the Grove, the staff has made me feel confident that my child is receiving excellent care. The well-trained, fully qualified staff are sensitive and caring to all family and children’s needs. Kids in the Grove staff have helped to build my child’s self-esteem, self-respect, and respect for others. There is a nice mix of boys and girls as well as variety in ages. I wish I could see a daycare like this at every school!” -Trena

“The care that my two children have received at Kids in the Grove has been wonderful – I know that when I drop my kids off at daycare every day, that they will be well taken care of. The staff has been very attentive to my son and daughter’s various needs – especially when it comes to my son’s life-threatening allergies. If there is ever a problem or concern, they do not hesitate to pick up the phone to contact me and let me know.” -Lynn Berreth

“For both our kids, English was a second language to them; however, through the programs and activities the teachers use at the daycare, our children were more than ready to start Kindergarten at the same level as all the other students. My husband and I are grateful to know that our children are in good hands. The way they care for them, the open relationship we have, and the trust that we’ve built with them are just a few reasons why we feel this way.” -The Nyaradi Family

“Throughout all these years Kids in the Grove and its staff became a big part of our family. We are thankful for what they offer, and for all their hard work. The teachers are the ones who will support our children mentally, physically, and emotionally when we cannot be there. It is not what they are taught, but the way they are taught that matters. Our family found comfort at Kids in the Grove, and all we can do is to say a truly heartfelt: THANK YOU!”

“Kids in the Grove is a great place. You are all wonderful and so patient with the kids. When I first met with you, three years ago, and told you of past experiences with daycares and I said, “Communication is Key”, I was so relieved to know that Kids in the Grove has the same ideal and we all communicate so well. I can go to work and know my kids are in good hands.”
