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.
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.
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My husband's family has been attending KinderCare Learning for 3 generations now. He attended when he was an infant through third grade, his sisters children attended from infancy until they were in Kindergarten and first grade, and now our little girl has been attending since she was in the toddler class. Even looking at any other education centers was out of the question because we already had chosen. We have now been attending KinderCare LLC for 2 yeras now and we absolutely love it! From the friendly faces, and greetings when we walk in everyday to the many activities and events going on within the school I know without a doubt KinderCare was the right place for us. I love when we walk in the teachers greet her by name, even though she's not in their class. We have Ms. Tameka as her teacher right now in the twos class. She's awesome! We love her! I love the artwork our daughter brings home, it's my favorite. One of my favorite things is the community events Mrs. Danielle gets us parents involved in such as the seniors fuzzy socks donations, and the Christmas dessert bake off. It's gets us parents involved in the school and outside in the community.
We love KinderCare and the staff. We definetively made the right choice!
AJ and Stephen Womble - KinderCare Parent
Our family has been part of the KinderCare family for about a year now. When I first was shopping around for daycare for my little one, I met with Danielle the director and immediately I got the warm and fuzzies and felt like this was the place for my son. Everyone from the director, down to the absolutely amazing and sweet cook Annette, has been so welcoming and helpful. My son looks forward to seeing his friends and teachers every day - he has grown, and continues to grow and learn, everything from sign language to potty training! I am proud and thankful for being part of such a great family.
Val - KinderCare Parent
My son Josiah attended KinderCare in Cary for a brief time. However in this time it was clearly evident that from the bottom to the top of the chain existed pure motivation to provide the best environment possible. Every child regardless of family situation, background and ethnic origin is cared for with the value that each child deserves. Every morning you will be greeted with a genuine smile from any staff member in your path, and you will leave with the assurance that can only come with this quality of management. We tend to forget that our children spend more waking hours with our childcare providers then ourselves. Having your child at this center, is the next best thing to the care a parent can provide. I will always be very grateful for our wonderful experience at this establishment.
Jessica H. - KinderCare Parent
Our family has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the KinderCare - Maynard Rd. location. Mrs. Hayes-Countee, welcomed us from day one and she along with the other teachers have maintained communication as we transitioned to the center as a new family and throughout our time with the center. The teachers are professional, approachable, engaged, creative, consistent, and nurturing. Due to a change in schools we have to leave KinderCare - Maynard Rd. We are sad to go as our son has thrived academically and socially at the center. For sure we will share with others the wonderful care and education KinderCare provides!
