We’re so proud!

Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited - nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.


What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

Our Programs

Infant Programs (6 weeks - 1 year)

Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

Toddler Programs (1 – 2 Years)

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Discovery Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)

At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.

Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Prekindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)

Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)

Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.

Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)

Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program


The Cooking Adventures program gives children opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. They will learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and the importance of a healthy diet. The curriculum includes lessons on picnics, pizza, and heart-healthy meals.


The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height, and weight. He will learn about shapes and solids. He will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and count money. Math is everywhere and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.


Ongoing research proves that early exposure to music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children will laugh and learn about rhythm, vocal melodies, and a variety of musical genres and instruments, which can lower stress and advance memory. Learning never sounded so good.

Phonics & Reading Adventures

Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.


Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Our Teachers

We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

An Artist's Heart

"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • "There are so many wonderful things to say about the teachers at KinderCare. My daughter has been there since about 6 months old and she LOVES going to school! As a first time mom the teachers have always been supportive with multiple phone calls and check ups. I love the sign language that Olivia has been taught so that she could learn early to communicate. A special thank you to the teachers who do her hair everyday, as they are the only ones who can get "ponies" into her wild hair! She is growing into a smart, independant young girl because of her experiences at KinderCare. Just today the teachers were able to celebrate in one of our first "potty" experiences. As a mother I really appreciate the "report cards" and love reading about her day, what she did, and what new letter she learned. Enough cannot be said about all they do."

    Kristy - KinderCare Parent
  • "I absolutely love Fox Valley KinderCare. When it came to finding the right child care for my daughter I was unsure of where to take her, until I toured this child care facility. The staff made me fell welcome and extremely comfortable. I was invited to meet and greet with the infant room teachers and I was able to see how they interact with my daughter and all the other babies. I instantly fell in love with the center. Fast forward to a year later and I am glad I chose this center. My daughter is now one and she has learned a lot and I know a big part of her learning is due to her amazing teachers. They not only attend to her every need but they have taken a huge part in helping her reach new milestones. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who is seeking child care."

    Alma G. - KinderCare Parent
    My children have gone to KinderCare since my oldest was only 6 months old, over eight years ago.  During these years, I have always found the teachers and staff caring and attentive.  During the summer, KinderCare provides a great alternative to working parents whose schedules don't allow them to send their kids to day-camp.  My daughter loves going on all the fun field trips to places like Science & Industry, Rain Forest Cafe and Luigi House.  My son loves his cooking class and all the art projects, especially making a tie-dye shirt.  When my friends and family need a daycare, I always happily recommend KinderCare.”

    Rachel - KinderCare Parent
  • "My 2 y/o son has been going to KinderCare 5 days/wk since he was 3 months old. We cannot say enough great things about the center. The teachers are phenomenal and treat him like they would their own children. They make him feel special and loved and I feel completely comfortable with each of them. The Center Director, Ashley, is wonderful. She makes sure we are fully informed about everything going on in the center and makes sure we are comfortable leaving our son each day. I highly recommend this center!"

    Emily L. - KinderCare Parent
  • "I love this Kinder Care!!!!  I have used other agencies as well as other KinderCare's and this one is the best!  My son loves it!  He is 3 1/2 almost 4 and can't wait to get there :-).  There is a great curriculum for him, he is never bored.  Very educational but he also has a great time playing with his friends.  The Center Director, Miss Ashley is always on top of everything and very helpful if we need anything extra.  It's always hard to find a daycare you can trust, you can definitely trust this one!  I would give them 10 stars if possible!"
