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.

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.

    1. January's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Light and Dark, plus the Sky and Weather

      Through shadow play, experiments with flashlights, observing the Sun and more, infants and toddlers will enjoy learning about light and dark this month. Infants continue sensory development by looking at contrasting patterns and at objects that are clearly defined by sharp edges and bright colors, while toddlers will build on their understanding of the light and dark concepts with play around daytime and nighttime. The older Discovery Preschool children will turn their attention to the sky as they learn about weather, the Moon, the Sun, and stars.

      Children 4–5 years old: Transportation, Healthy Bodies, and Winter

      For children in the Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms, January is filled with variety! They’ll begin by learning about transportation and studying how things get from “here” to “there.” A few weeks later, the focus will shift to health and bodies, with an emphasis placed on how to make good choices for a growing body. Towards the end of the month, children will be introduced to the transformative nature of the winter season and learn how to dress and take care of themselves when it’s cold outside.

I really enjoyed seeing the children as they learned new tasks. Knowing that I was preparing them for kindergarten was awesome. In November 2007, I became the Assistant Director. I was able to take the skills I learned to help me make the decision to become a director. In July 2008, I transferred to this KinderCare as the Director. I take great pride in my position and center. Providing a positive learning environment and building relationships with my families is the best part of my job.

    1. December's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Family, Friends, and Things that Go!

      Infants and toddlers will be exploring family and friends, while three-year-olds will focus on things that go vroom! Social and emotional development is foundational to growth and development in babies, so this month, infants and toddlers will participate in activities that reinforce their connection to family while also exploring connections that exist outside their home, such as friends. Meanwhile, their older friends in Discovery Preschool will learn about and play around with things that move (like bicycles, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes), which are all very exciting for little ones as they continue to explore the world outside their homes. 

      Children 4–5 years old: My Country + Tools and Machines

      The four- and five-year-olds continue exploring the world around them by learning about the state and country they live in! They’ll sings songs, play games based on travel, and learn about flags, state foods, and more. Children will also be introduced to cardinal directions (east, west, north, and south) and gain an appreciation for travel and meeting new friends from different places. 

      Children are naturally fascinated with machines and how things work and are put together. So to encourage that fascination, during the second half of this month children will learn about and play around with tools and machines. In addition to building literacy skills by using the names of machines and tools, children will develop math skills by graphing information, counting wheels, and more.

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

Our little one was with you guys for the first year of his life until we moved to Texas. We could not be more pleased and satisfied by what the girls did for him at the center. Everything was always so consistent and done with lots of love and care. It has been a year since then, but I know that our Bradley would remember all of the ladies that took care of him every day from when he was just six-weeks-old.

I still get emails on occasion reminding parents of an upcoming open house and other events. When we receive these emails, it makes my wife and me a little sad, because we are not a part of your center any longer. We hope to drop by next time we are in town so that we can see everyone.

We give our best wishes to the whole staff, little babies and young children in your center's care. I'm positive that they are in good hands and the best facility their parents could ask for in a daycare. Miss you guys! Jennifer and I send our love!

- Father

My grandchildren have attended KinderCare Learning Center for many years. I have always been impressed with the organization and cleanliness of the facility at 81st and 145th in Broken Arrow. The teachers have been structured, engaging, and a positive influence on my grandkids. The learning center consistently communicates the curriculum and daily activities of the kids.

I have been an avid KinderCare client for over 6 years.  I have 4 children that have attended KinderCare.  We are so thankful and so pleased with the care our children have received.  Any time we have had any concerns or issues they are addressed immediately.  The staff at KinderCare treats my children as they would treat their own.  We had a medical issue with one of my daughters that required some extra work on the staff’s part, as well as a very close eye to ensure her safety.  KinderCare did a fantastic job!  I was so relieved having that confidence.  I can’t express how much stress that took off of my shoulders KNOWING that my daughter was in good hands of trained, loving people.  KinderCare helps my children develop, socialize and communicate effectively.  The curriculum is FANTASTIC!!  My children have gone to Kindergarten and tested the highest in their school.  I firmly believe this is because of the passion of the individuals that are teaching my children and the desire they are putting in them to thirst for more knowledge by making it fun and rewarding.  I would not take my children anywhere but here.  KinderCare is a top notch program & we have been truly blessed to have the staff as a part of our family’s life.  I would, and have, recommended this place to all my family & friends in need of exceptional child care.  Their level of professionalism and caring is unbeatable. 
 
Thank you KinderCare and staff for taking such amazing care of my babies and personally investing in their future as my husband and I have.

My family and I just wanted to take a few moments to say thank you for the excellent care that you provide for our daughter on a daily basis. Upon learning of my pregnancy, my husband and I began our hunt for the perfect daycare. We read rave reviews regarding KinderCare Learning Center and definitely preferred the center style to the in-home type. We scheduled a walk-through appointment with your location as well as many other childcare facilities. The staff at KinderCare was by far our favorite, as they made us feel welcome and at home. Our daughter has been with you since she was six weeks old and she recently celebrated her fourth birthday. My husband and I know that she is safe and very well cared for at your center. The bumps that we have encountered along the way, have always been met head-on by your staff and for that we are extremely appreciative. The care that staff members show toward our daughter has been on par with our expectations, which we place extremely high regarding our “Princess”. Our daughter learns so much at the center and has tons of fun, too! We have her enrolled in a Phonics course at your center as well which is excellent! She comes home and loves showing us the new letters and sounds that she has learned. When she starts school she will be beyond ready with sight words and such. The curriculum that she learns is AMAZING! We definitely recommend KinderCare Learning Center to all parents! The staff and their love and care give us the peace-of-mind we need to go to work everyday knowing that our kiddo is in loving arms. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but we say it takes hardworking parents and KinderCare! Thank you for all you do!

As first time parents, we read all of the books and blogs giving suggestions for how to pick a daycare. What questions to ask, what to look at.... We visited several and liked them all, but when we walked out of the Kindercare on 81st I told my husband "this is the one. I don't want to look anywhere else, she has to go here." From that day on we have been more than happy to be a part of the KinderCare family.

 
Leaving a newborn with people you don't know is hard.... I cried. The teachers understood and reassured me. The first several weeks, I called often and my husband stopped by to check on her. We were never made to feel like we were intruding or that we were silly. As our daughter got older, the teachers took time to get to know her. She has never just been "one of the kids," she is an individual and made to feel special. By the time she was two she was counting and singing the alphabet. When she was old enough, she started taking additional classes to help her learn more about the things that she was showing interest in. Music was a HUGE hit! Now she's almost four and walks through the school with confidence saying hi to her favorite teachers along the way. She once told me, "When I grow up, I want to be a teacher like Miss Mary." By the way, she also thinks Miss Liz is the smartest person she knows.
 
I can't say enough good things about our Kindercare. On the few occasions that we've had a concern, Kelly or Jamie have been more than happy to help us. From the clean facility to the AWESOME staff, we couldn't ask for more.
