Welcome

Hello Families, I'd like to take this opportunity to  welcome you to our Nationally Accredited KinderCare Learning Center in Bryan, Texas. My name is Pamela Anders and I am the Center Director here at the Royal Street location in Bryan, Texas. I believe that early childhood is a time of exploration and discovery and that is our goal here at KinderCare. So I would like welcome all families to become active partners with us in shaping their child's educational future. Here at KinderCare we know that young children learn by “hands on” experiences. Our staff is highly qualified to enhance each child’s growth and development in a stimulating atmosphere of warmth and understanding. Although we prepare children for the rest of their educational future we also nurture the child as an individual and make learning a fun experience. Our center offers a safe and clean learning environment with highly skilled and trained staff that provides a caring and nurturing atmosphere for your child to learn and grow. Call us today and schedule a tour of our wonderful facility located on Royal Street! I look forward to meeting you and your family!

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.

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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

Here at the Kinder Care on Royal Street all of our teachers are dedicated early to childhood education and take great pride in providing a range of opportunities for children to explore, learn and grow, while adhering to the highest standards of excellence and care. Individualized lesson plans enable our teachers to accommodate the needs of our children, and stimulating activities keep learning fun. Our teachers stay current with monthly training sessions and a bi-annual day of training.

  • Ms. Diane

    Ms. Diane, Preschool

    ~~My goal is to provide a positive environment where language and literacy development will flourish.  I believe when children feel secure in their environment, they are more likely to engage in frequent, age-appropriate conversations that build vocabulary and social skills.  I work with children individually, in small groups, and the whole group at different times during the day.   I will display your child's original artwork, their own writing with invented spelling, and stories dictated by children during our afternoon group time. You will also find your child’s work in his / her portfolio and take-home folder.  I use lacing cards, stencils, and writing activities to enhance fine-motor skills; strengthen coordination and gross-motor skills through running, jumping, and throwing activities, offer healthful food choices for snacks and meals, and encourage learning about the ways our bodies respond to the exercise and nutrition we take in.

  • Ms. Chrystal, Pre Kindergarten

    ~~My goal is to provide a literacy rich classroom with plenty of opportunities for children to explore books and writing.  As a leader in early childhood education, KinderCare knows that one of the best predictors of a successful reader is the amount of time a child spends reading. I use daily journal activities to practice writing skills; help your child's early reading skills by connecting sounds to letters through picture and word collages; teach basic sight words in fun and engaging ways; and develop phonemic awareness through literacy-based games, books, and puzzles. We will build brain power while making new friends and learning valuable social skills for success in Elementary School

Health and Safety

Our top priority at KinderCare is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children, families, and staff. We do this through rigorous training and constant assessment and evaluation of proper policies and procedures. Your child’s security begins at the front door, literally. We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter. All side doors are kept locked to ensure the security of the exterior of the building. All guests or emergency pick-up people are identified and escorted through the building. Of course, our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting. We are trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected. Throughout the day, your child will be supervised at all times. No child is ever left unattended, even for a minute. Teachers have all been trained in supervision, discipline and guidance, and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure they understand the risks associated with the children in their care. If your child has food allergies or specific medical conditions, we will work with you to ensure your child’s well being while in our care. We also take the responsibility of your child’s emotional security very seriously. We want every child to feel safe, loved, and respected while at KinderCare.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

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

My children enjoy coming to KinderCare every day. They have learned so much since they have been here. They love to read and count in Spanish. The girls are loved by the staff which makes our morning transition easy. It's a great feeling when they don't want to leave at the end of the day. I wouldn't take them anywhere else.
