AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
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.
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.
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.

Dear KinderCare West,
Before choosing KinderCare West I did extensive research and visited numerous daycare facilities. Form the moment I walked into the KinderCare West, I loved the warmth, care, safety and attention the staff provided. The children looked happy in the classrooms and the staff knowledgeable and attentive.
My son Jordan started attending the KinderCare at six month's old. Sending my child off to daycare for the first time was difficult for me especially in the first week but thanks to KinderCare West, all that apprehension quickly evaporated as I realized how happy not only he was but I too due to all the love and care and attention the teachers and staff provided.
Our morning greetings from Ms. Dina and staff are always friendly and they always greet us with a smile. Jordan's first teacher Ms. Katrin was a complete joy and made each day dropping him off feel safe. They helped me with everything. In Jordan's second classroom we were blessed again to have amazing teachers, Ms. Susan and Ms. Francesca. Teaching him words, songs, art and taking care of him. Jordan is now in the toddler room and once again we are overjoyed and blessed with his teachers Ms.Maarni, Ms. Maria and Ms. Mellany. Jordan is now walking and talking and each day he walks into his classroom gets a loving greeting from Ms. Maarni along with the all the staff. He is learning more words; he has a classroom schedule filled with storytime, songs, dance, art and more.
I am so very thankful for KinderCare West and I can't express enough of my gratitude to Jordan's teachers, assistant teacher's and the loving friendly staff. Your facility , teacher's and staff are making a priceless impact on all the children and I thank you for all that you do.
Jennifer, Jordan's Mom.

The teachers, staff and leadership at this school are amazing and are always willing to help and go beyond. My child has always had great teachers who communicate constantly and keep me in the loop. When I’m teaching my child something new or facing a challenge in a certain area, I’m always able to approach the school and partner with them to help my child or assess with them what might be the best solution. There’s a good mix of enrichment activities which keeps the kids learning and makes for a fun environment.
