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.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

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

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.

  • Linda Shay Pleasant

    Linda Shay Pleasant, Center Director

    Learning is their journey. Let them navigate.Push them to explore. Watch them discover. Encourage their questions. Support their thinking. Let them Fly.

    I am honored to be part of such a wonderful school family. I started my career with Knowledge Universe 12 years ago. During those years, I have worked at many different locations, including this Knowledge Beginnings during 2009-2011. During those 2 years, I had the role of Assistant Director and have worked with other schools within our organization throughout the years.

    Important aspects of having a successful school are communication with the families and your child's teachers as well as school leadership. I want to ensure that everyone is receiving the promise they will receive during their initial tour. After all, it will be your home away from home.

    I reside in Angier, NC and live there with my husband and son, Waylon, and our Chihuahua, Lilly. I have lived in North Carolina all my life, but love to travel and see new places. My favorite activities are spending time with my family and traveling to the beach or mountains.

    My hope is that you will come in to visit our wonderful school and meet this beautiful team of talented teachers.

    Sincerely,
    Shay Pleasant

  • Ms. Suzette

    Ms. Suzette, Toddlers

    I love teaching toddlers especially because they learn so fast, counting, and their ABC's! It inspires me that children always look forward to what they will learn each day, their smile, giggles, hugs and kisses.

    Ms. Suzette is so special to Knowledge Beginnings.  She worked at a sister school for a few years before moving to Knowledge Beginnings in 2009.  She became the toddler teacher along side Ms. Clarilyn.  They make such a great team.  What is even more ironic and special is that they are both originally from the Phillipines.  They are known to occasionally speak their native language to the toddlers as well. 

    They have such a special bond with each other.  Their classroom is always full and you can usually find children in our Pre-Kindergarten class that had Ms. Suzette as their toddler teacher.  They will usually walk the hall to come by to check in with both of them. 

    A normal routine in the toddler class for group time is everyone getting a turn on the class drum.  Everyone uses the class drum individually to welcome their friends in for the day.  They love it and do a great job at sharing.  Come check it out!

    Ms. Beverly, School Cook

    It makes me happy when the children tell me they like what I made for them. They all know who I am and when I walk into a younger class they all go running to their chairs when they see me. I love my job!

    Ms. Beverly has been our cook for 4 years. She came to us as a chef from a grocery store. We believe she wanted to add spice to her life by coming to cook for young children. Cooking for children and seeing that excitement can be so fulfilling for someone. She greets all the families as she sees them in the halls at drop off. Every child knows her and appreciates what she does for them. She is always providing feedback on what the children's likes and dislikes are regarding the menu. She should know!

    If you need a cup of coffee in the morning on your way out the door she will have it for you!!

Health and Safety

Here at Knowledge Beginnings we offer many different safety features that will put your mind at ease while at work. Before entering our building we have a keypad entry system, where only our families enrolled have the entry code. Once inside we have an open door policy for our families, where families are welcomed to spend the day with their child or simply watch from the cameras in each classroom from the lobby. Outside the building, we have five different fenced play-scapes with a adult length latch to open the gate. Our center is a peanut free school. Our staff is CPR, First Aid and SIDS certified. For further details, please feel free to contact us.

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

Do you want the perfect combination of caring and teaching for your child? Knowledge Beginnings is the place you want to be! Here, staff are invested in the education and well being of your children. Our son is almost four and has been attending since he was 11 months. We have been so impressed with his social and academic skills as he has grown older and moved through different classrooms. He loves to interact with his friends and teachers. He has conversations with us about his days and what he is learning. Our son is learning about letters, themes, and numbers. He loves story time and discussing what they have read. He is always so excited! In addition to his regular class, he also participates in a hands on cooking class. It is one of his favorite things to do there and he always looks forward to it.  Our daughter is now one and has been going to Knowledge Beginnings since she was seven weeks old. The teachers in that room are by far the most amazing and loving people. I didn’t worry for a second about leaving my little baby! After over a week with her, they knew what her cries and expressions meant and were always able to tell me so many interesting things about her day. As she has grown up there, she always runs into class and gives her teachers hugs and loves to play. There are so many different things that impress me about this center. The directors and staff all know my children even if they are not directly working in a room with them. The teachers are always positive and are enthusiastic about their passion for teaching. Communication between staff and parents is a huge plus. My children are loved and always taken care of. They get to be social and they are learning more than I can keep up with sometimes! This is a center of happiness for our family!
 

- Mother

We came to Knowledge Beginnings based on a recommendation from a co-worker. At the time, we had an almost one-year-old and a five-year-old who was just two months from school. We hated to move our five-year-old to a new school for such a short time, but the Knowledge Beginnings staff was excellent in welcoming her and we could not have asked for a better transition. We have had no regrets with our decision to choose Knowledge Beginnings. The staff is wonderful in all areas of the center.
