AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

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.

SCHOOL-READY

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.

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.

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.

Our Families

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

  • I have never been so comfortable with another childcare center (and we've been to three others in the past). Danielle, the director, and truly all the staff, are so completely competent and loving toward my kiddo. We all experience ups and downs, but this center has been very successful in providing stability. It is so heart warming to hear my son talk about how much fun he has at school, and even get excited about going in the morning. The level of communication with staff and parent is AMAZING. I am so grateful for the Bothell team. Thank you.

    Patty - KinderCare Parent
  • My son LOVES the music class. He only tells me a little about what they do, but the first time I played one of the CD's he got this huge, happy, and surprised look and said it was like the music at his school. And then he started dancing like CRAZY to the songs. Well actually he was dancing quite well, kind of slow and gracefully to slower songs and faster and crazier with up tempo music. It was really fun to watch!

    Kathy - KinderCare Parent
  • We were very picky when deciding a new daycare for our son as we'd had mixed results in the past with both daycare and nannies. From the moment he met Danielle, we knew this was a great school for him. Our son not only has a great big crush on Danielle, but loves his classroom, his teachers and his schoolmates. He is excited to be there and is always in a great mood when we come to pick him up after work. We moved a bit further away from Bothell Kindercare, but choose to drive the extra distance to keep him here -- he's happy and engaged and learns so much! And he's always so happy to see Danielle!

    Erin C. - KinderCare Parent
  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Bothell KinderCare. When my oldest was a few months old, we visited a number of daycare centers and in-home daycares. I didn’t feel comfortable with a single one until we found your team. Now with two boys at Bothell KinderCare, I’m so happy we made this decision. It’s a hard choice to go back to work and leave your babies in the care of someone else. I think what makes your center so special, is that it’s so obvious how much the teacher’s truly care. Both of my boys light up when they see their teacher’s in the morning and oftentimes when I arrive at night, they don’t want to leave! It’s also the little things that make this center so special. I love the “my day” forms that tell me everything about my child’s day. The projects that the classes do are incredible – and give me a little bit of a peak into their daily routine. They both love the structure that the center provides them with set snack times, naptimes, play, etc. I’m sure most daycare centers provide a lot of these things as well. But it’s the people that make all of the difference. Bothell KinderCare has some of my favorite people in this entire world. They care about our entire family. When I’m having a rough day and just missing my boys, I’m free to call and talk to them, stop by and see them, or anything that will help get me through my day. The staff wants to make sure all of us are happy and taken care of. It really feels like an extension of my family. As long as my boys are in need of a daycare, this is where we’ll stay! If any families are ever looking for a parent to talk with, please send them my way. I’m happy to share my experiences with them!
