Our Approach to Education

Each day KinderCare uses the educational power of play to grow your child socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually—all while having fun.

Our passionate and engaging teachers grow, learn, and imagine with your child, whether building a spaceship to blast off to Mars or inviting a new friend to share a story during group time. We believe “curriculum” is everything that happens in the classroom, from interactions and meals to singing and playing. We never miss an opportunity to blend play with our early education curriculum.

We provide a balance between choice and structured activities, between group and individual pursuits, and between teacher and child-directed experiences. Our activies are aligned with 140 learning standards across six developmental domains:

  • Math & Science
  • Creative Expressions
  • Problem Solving
  • Language & Literacy
  • Balance & Coordination
  • Social Development

Inclusion Philosophy

KinderCare welcomes children of all abilities, with the commitment to provide quality care and education to each child. We believe every child is a unique individual with varying needs, and we welcome the diversity that brings to our centers. All children and families deserve to be full members of their communities, to have the opportunity for development and learning, and to experience a sense of belonging.

KinderCare supports inclusion by providing access to our world-class curriculum programs, embracing inclusive participation in our programs, and offering support to our educators through training and consultation by our Education and Inclusion Services teams. Inclusion is not just a strategy for helping certain children overcome challenges; inclusion is a way of life at KinderCare.
