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.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.
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.

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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
“"The one-on-one time/ small groups outside of regular classroom is great for my daughter! She is so excited to learn and loves spending time with and talking about Ms. Jenna! She is developmentally really progressing since joining the Phonics Learning Adventures class!"
Lauren B. - KinderCare Parent
“"Within a couple weeks I noticed my daughter identifying letters by sight and sound. She passed out our Christmas presents because she knew the first letter of everyone's name! She loves phonics class! She talks about how much she loves Ms. Jenna and the fun activities they get to do in their small group. If you're considering one of the Learning Adventure Classes definitely try it! I am positive that they will benefit from the education push and it's great to have small group attention time as well!"
Laura M. - KinderCare Parent
Any parent wonders about leaving their child in the care of others. The Rangeline KinderCare team makes sure our daughter is well cared for, intellectually stimulated and challenged to develop new skills every day. Most importantly, they make her feel loved and safe. Confident that our daughter is happy and excelling in their care, we can go to work and focus on our jobs so that by the time we pick her up, we can focus on our family.
Our daughter is an individual to the Rangeline Kindercare team, not just one of many in a classroom. Each day the team members make time to speak about not only our child but us, too. Everyone at this center cares about the wellness of the children and their families, and it is because of this sense of community we are so proud to be part of their family."
Dr. A. - KinderCare Parent
I love the Rangeline KinderCare. There are daycares that are closer to our home and work, but we choose to send our child to this center because of the warm, nurturing and welcoming environment this center has. The director and teachers are all great. Our child started in the Infant Room, transitioned to the Tiny Tot Room and is now in the Toddler Room and we have had such exceptional experiences with each classroom. I also love that the director knows all the children by name - personalization is huge at this center. Thank you, KinderCare, for all that you do for our child!
Ally M. - KinderCare Parent
The entire team at KinderCare Rangeline center is tremendous that provides us with such a high sense of comfort in handing our kid over to them.
It takes a mountain of confidence for parents to hand over their kids to someone and the KinderCare Rangeline team brings in the same confidence and demonstrates that from day one. Be it taking ten calls a day regarding how Anika had been doing, or emailing random picture with such valuable expressions that we miss, for sure, is far beyond. Thank You! No words can explain the emotions to see Anika grow and develop her personality. The team is professional and they make the kids feel at home and groom them for the future. While the entire team puts in herculean efforts day in and day out to keep the show on, there always are a few people who touch us on daily basis.
Ms. Tairyn, Ms. Emily, Mr. Ron are those gems of this team who had always stood out in grooming Anika as a toddler from an infant. Ms. Tairyn had always been like a role model for Anika. Anika would always follow her in what she does. We had always seen sparkle in Anika's eyes when she sees Ms. Emily or Mr. Ron, be it in the KinderCare facility or at a public place. This does show how connected she is to all her teachers, which always strengthens our confidence and what brought us to this center more than an year ago. Ms. Tairyn, Ms. Emily and Mr. Ron had made the last year look like "peaches" for us when it comes to bringing up Anika and telling her what she needs to know, in spite of the cultural diversity. Ms. Jaime, Ms. Kim, Ms. Suzzie are those terrific people who had been helping Anika. The sparkle in her eyes at 7:45 AM when she sees her favorite teachers cannot be put into words. From the days when she was new to the environment and would resist to be dropped off, to the days when see runs from the car to her teachers, is the reflection of her confidence and comfort in being at this facility and with these wonderful people. She does feel at home when she arrives. From the different food needs that Anika has, to helping her learn all that she knows, would have not been possible without the efforts of these terrific people. We know Anika enjoys her time here and she is, nowadays, never reluctant to go. The other name that needs a special mention is Ms. Bobby, who does one of the most difficult tasks of making different kinds of food for all the kids at the school. She is the person who feeds Anika and all other kids and ensures that the basic necessities are addressed. No words of gratitude are enough for Ms. Bobby's efforts.
While these jewels of KinderCare Rangeline facility are the face of the team, leaders like Candace and Katie are needed to hold this ship together and ensure that the experience provided to kids and their parents is always second to none. These two people are the brain of this facility. Though this is a short synopsis of Anika's experience in the last year, this also is the sense of confidence from new parents.
