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.

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.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

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.

Becoming a stay-at-home mom to her two boys as a dream come true. After starying home for the next eight years, Lisa decided to go back to work part-time at her sons' school. In 2011, she decided KinderCare is where she wanted to be once again. She returned to the Infant room and with the support of her husband, family, and coworkers, she received her CDA.

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

Dear KinderCare,

This letter is a long time in coming to you. I wanted to thank you for the great care and early education my son, Josh Kinyon had since infancy.
Josh is a fine man of 18 and I have always said KinderCare made a difference. The staff at the time, Marybeth, Lori, Miss Millie, and all of the others were amazing. Josh's older sister, Jenna, also turned out smart, social, and well rounded. 
Josh will graduate May 24th from Bettendorf #1 in his class. He had a 35 ACT and 1560 on SAT. He had perfect math scores on both exams.
He will attend University of Iowa this fall in the honors program with a full tuition/room and board scholarship.
I really have always said it was that I read to him every night, he had natural gifts, and the start he had with love and care from your staff. 

Thank you

- Parent

After showing an interest in letters and their sounds, I enrolled my three-year-old son in Learning Adventures. I was debating about whether or not I should enroll him because of his age, but I'm so glad that I did! I noticed an improvement in his Phonics skills within the first few weeks. It's exciting to watch him sound out letters, and I love to watch the look on his face when he figures out words. I'm so proud of him, but on top of that, I see that he is proud of himself because he has more confidence in his abilities. I like the attention he gets with the small group size, and I appreciate the daily sheets that come home describing both what they learned that day and what I can do at home to continue the lesson. Ms. Kylie is energetic and attentive, and she is an important part of why my son looks forward to his Phonics days.

I wanted to tell you a most sincere Thank You for all of your help and encouragement of my girls during their first week in the Toddler Room.  The teachers have been absolutely amazing and they have been so understanding with my girls' transition. It made it a lot easier on Eric and me. We really appreciate all the extra effort and attention that the staff has been giving the girls to welcome them into the classroom.

Learning Adventures has been a very positive and encouraging experience for our daughter. Each day that she gets to work with Ms. Kylie, she comes home with information to share and an excitement that we've never seen her show for learning before. Personally, we always struggled to get our daughter to sit with us for little lessons at home, but with Learning Adventures, she appears to be very engaged and her confidence has grown.
