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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program
Our Cooking Academy program teaches kids confidence in the kitchen through hands-on activities that build important math, science, and social skills. They’ll learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and nutrition—and get to eat some delicious food made all on their own like carrot and turmeric hummus, pumpkin muffins, vegetable curry, black bean and sweet potato chili, and so much more!
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!
We wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate you and the KinderCare staff. When it came time to send our children to daycare we had several options, however, after you gave us a tour we knew instantly our children needed to be at KinderCare. The teachers are all so kind and compassionate with the kids and the curriculum is very well thought out.
Since our children have started at KinderCare we have noticed several wonderful changes in them. We started our KinderCare adventure with a somewhat shy, reserved little girl and almost three years later we have a totally confident, outgoing, ambitious little girl that loves to learn. In just one year our little guy has learned to better express himself with words and how to participate in a structured learning environment. We attribute much of these positive changes to the wonderful teachers at KinderCare and the partnership they form with the parents regarding their children's education and needs.
As parents, we love knowing that we are sending our children to a safe, structured, fun and happy environment. We think it's amazing how all of the teachers seem to know every child's name in the school, even if they've never had them in their class. We appreciate knowing that we are always welcome to talk to you or the teachers about any concerns or issues with our children's education or overall experience at KinderCare.
We would highly recommend KinderCare to any parent looking for a caring, safe, fun, educational, compassionate daycare facility. We truly feel we made the best decision for a daycare when we chose you. Thank you for all that you and your staff do for our family.
Melissa H. - KinderCare Parent
Small Fry has attended this branch of KinderCare since she was a small tot. Although this "school" may be a little more pricey than other daycares, it is well worth the money. Each classroom, even the baby rooms, is run like a school with a curriculum that includes all aspects of education. The children are, however, given freedom to explore and learn at their own pace. From babies to school age, all the curriculum are well thought out and fun. KinderCare serves children from newborns to age 12. A bonus for first graders and up, is that they have a bus that will take your child to the local schools and pick them up after. This for me has been a lifesaver on several occasions when I've had an early morning appointment or meeting. In the summer time and holiday breaks KinderCare has a differently themed camp program each week. Some I remember from this past summer are: Robotics, Animals, Wilderness, Egyptology... Each week saw Small Fry learning something new and being excited and engaged. The teachers are all wonderful and KinderCare has an open door policy, which I have used over the years. I have witnessed nothing but the best of care for my child, and would never consider going elsewhere. Dietary restrictions? No problem! Although the menu they serve on a daily basis is nutritious and appeals to kids, they will make sure that your child is well fed within your guidelines. Another great feature is the ability to pay on-line and track your FSA spending. Makes it so easy, instead of having to write a check every week! If you have a little one that needs quality childcare in the Celebration area, Small Fry would highly recommend KinderCare!
