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.

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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

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!

  • The Knowledge Beginnings in Brookline has been a wonderful environment for the early years of my two children's lives. Our son started as a baby and is now in preschool. He has been cared for with the loving attention that every parent would hope to find for their children. Some of his teachers have become like family to us. When it came time to decide where to send out daughter, there was no doubt that the best place for her would be Knowledge Beginnings. She's now one and half and loves going to school. My son often comes home with beautiful art projects, new songs to teach us or stories to share that he's learned at school. My husband and I feel that both our children's time at this center have prepared them for their next chapter while also creating a warm, loving, fun, safe and educational environment for them to spend their days. I would recommend Knowledge Beginnings in Brookline without reservation.

  • [My daughter] has grown and matured so much since her start in January. It's been a pleasureto drop off/pick up to see how many people know her name! I truly appreciate all you have done for her-she loves school so much! I can't say enough good things about the infant teachers. You are all remarkable people!

    Erin C. - KinderCare Parent
  • So we have finally picked a last day for [our daughter]. It's been hard for us to admit that her time at Knowledge Beginnings is going to have to come to an end, but I guess the time really is coming near [for her to go to elementary school]… I know that she's really going to miss everyone at school, but I also know that you have prepared her well to move on in this next step… We cannot thank you all enough for taking such great care of our daughter. She has been so well cared for and so well loved over the past five years - everything we could have hoped for as parents. I'm glad this isn't going to be goodbye for our family.
