Welcome

Welcome to the Blue Ash KinderCare located on Cornell Road servicing families who work and live in the Blue Ash, Sharonville, West Chester, and Reading areas. We are so excited to meet with you and your family. Our experts designed our classrooms to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child initiated discovery. We believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child's growth with their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. In our community we know it takes a village to raise a child so our professionals communicate daily with parents on their child's development, and their expectations of our program. Your child will not only have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support from a team of professionals who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children.

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.

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.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

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.

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.

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

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE KinderCare!! Originally I was told my daughter Amirah would have some learning disabilities due to complications at birth. Enrolling Amirah into KinderCare on Cornell you would have never thought those words existed. With great teachers, directors and we can't leave out the PHONICS, currently Amirah is excelling in school and is above her grade level in Reading and Math!! Amirah and I began our journey with KinderCare when she was 2 1/2 years old and this was by far the best decision I made in both our lives!!!

- Mother

Our son was born with a series of medical challenges. Because this was the first time we had used day care, we were nervous. Not only about dropping him off with non-family, but also because he needed special attention. KinderCare made sure our son got all the attention & therapy he needed. He was loved on. He was taken care of. They worked with us every step of the way to ensure he received all the proper medical care. Today he's not just healthy, but his 3 best friends in the whole world also go to KinderCare. And as parents, can we ask for more than that?

- Parents

I switched my kids’ daycare to Kindercare, and have noticed great progress since their enrollment. They are doing very well with math, language, large and fine motor skills, and social skills. Importantly, my kids enjoy going to school and are happy when they are dropped off each day, and chat about their friends and teachers after school. They are also excited to show me the new skills they have learned during the day. The teachers and the director have a true open door policy and I know I am always welcome to stop by to see my kids at any time. They also respond quickly to calls and emails. The communication between the school and the parents is exemplary. I am very happy that I switched my kids to Kindercare.

- Dana

I wanted to write a quick note to the center to say "Thank You" to Ms. Michelle. I came to her with a question at the end of the day Wednesday regarding my son and we were able to talk through some things and she gave me some good advice. Then, when I came to pick him up today, she had spent some additional time researching my question and had some good information for me.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the work you all do and know that we're very happy with the care our boys are getting.

He really likes Ms. Michelle (and Ms. Ashley) and I really appreciate the extra effort she went to, in order to help point me in the right direction. It means a lot that she invested the extra time (when I hadn't even had a chance to look into it myself).
