Accreditation

Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

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

Cooking

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.

Math

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.

Music

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

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.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

“It brings a smile to our faces to see our kids run into school to see their friends and receive a welcoming hug from many of their teachers. The teachers are very kind and loving with all of the children and many times exhibit the patience of saints. The teachers know exactly how to work with my kids when they need extra attention, a special project to encourage leadership or a small reward for a kind behavior. KinderCare gives me the peace of mind of knowing that my children are safe, well-cared for and learning new things each day to prepare them for school and life in the big world.”
- Mom
“KinderCare has been part of our family since my oldest (now 3) was a couple months old and they have cared for my baby since she was 6 weeks old. I cannot say enough good things about this KinderCare and their staff. My Oldest has always loved going to “school” on the days that I work. She attends all twelve hours and is excited every day. Each room has appropriate developmental activities, great meals, and wonderful teachers who truly love their job. When I asked my oldest why she enjoys going to school she told me because she loves when her teacher does her hair and reads to her. My infant weighed less than six pounds when starting here. They took special precautions to ensure she was safe and accepted my calls to check in during the day with pleasure.
 
Management is always friendly, professional, and personable. Over the past three years many changes have been made that have truly made this place stand tall above the rest. The cooking, language, and music classes are a great addition to all the other special activities they provide. It was so hard to find a daycare that did not require a set schedule. KinderCare works with my schedule and is flexible with my family’s needs. It is truly a relief to know my children are safe and happy during the day. My oldest does not cry going to daycare she cries on the days we don’t go. Thanks to all the teachers and management who make this transition easy for working mothers.”
- Mom

 
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.”

- Mom

Miss Maria has been a very special part of our daughter's life since she started KinderCare. She loves Miss Maria with all her heart. In fact, when we tell her that she gets to go to school to see Miss Maria she is giggling with excitement and is ready to go. We are so thankful that Miss Maria is part of her life and has given her so much love and affection when we can't be with her during the day. 

Miss Anna, Miss Marisol, Miss Zeneth, and Miss Jenna have also been wonderful, sweet, and fun teachers. Allie loves them all and we are so glad that our son now gets to have them as teachers too. I personally have enjoyed getting to know each of them as I pick up the kids from school.

We are so pleased with our daughter's development since she started in the twos with Miss Cindy. We are amazed how she now knows her letters and colors. She has also started using the potty!!! She has a lot of fun with Miss Cindy and we can't wait to see what else she learns this year!

- Mother

As new parents we were nervous to leave our little girl with anyone, let alone at her new school. She wasn't even old enough to cry because she missed us, although we certainly had tears in our eyes as we left our baby at school. We know for certain that the transition was more difficult for us than for our baby.  In fact, she ALWAYS has a smile on her face when we drop her off. 

Our daughter loves her school. We are certain that this is because all her teachers show her so much love and attention throughout the day. Whether it is making sure that she has a little ponytail or making sure she has the softest skin in the world, her teachers have always gone above and beyond to make sure she's always a "ten". 

We appreciate everyone who has helped mold our little girl into the smiley little person she is. We are grateful to be able to work with the teachers and provide her with the best of both worlds. KinderCare teachers, you are the best!

- Mother

My children have been a part of a few different KinderCare centers and we have always received exceptional customer service. It is a wonderful thing to know that when we have to go to work and are required to leave our children in someone else's care that they are in such good hands. We never doubt the safety nor the education our kids are receiving and it is a blessing to have the ability to give them such a great headstart in life. Our lives wouldn't be the same without the loving teachers and managers at KinderCare.

- Father

I don't know if you guys realize how much I appreciate all you've all done for me and my children. And to see not just myself in my twins girls but to also see apart of all the teachers in them as well. Our children are a reflection of those who raise and teach them and I see it everyday I bring them home. Alyssa and Jen thank you so much for bein so heartwarming and understanding and also for being apart of my girls learning. Thank you again to the entire Kindercare family..from the three of us.

- Father

Prior to joining the KinderCare family we looked at a few other centers and found them to be lacking in certain areas. This center has some really awesome teachers. All of the teachers and staff are nice and caring individuals. We believe they are truly educating the young minds in the classrooms. And, we love the open door policy. 

The girls have learned so much from by interacting with all of the teachers and kids. We are constantly amazed at the new vocabulary that is sprouting out of their mouths. We really appreciate the arts & crafts and pictures that come home. All items are saved and certainly not "scraps of paper".

- Mother

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.

- Mother

I could not be more happy with KinderCare. In comparison to our experience at a Chicago center it is night and day. I love getting the daily communication letters letting me know what Reagan did during the day and any concerns. It is great being able to use that sheet to ask her about her day and connect with her in a way that I wasn't able to do before. I am really looking forward to Reagan growing up there.
