AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

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.

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.

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.

Spanish

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.

Our Teachers

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.

Our Families

  • As a busy mom of now 4 I wanted a place that would nurture, socialize, educate, and create a safe environment for my children. After dropping my children off at KinderCare Learning Center in the morning I would go to work with that peace of mind each and every day! My oldest child who is 6 year old has been attending KinderCare since she was 6 weeks old when she entered kindergarten she was the top reader in her class and was one of the strongest with counting, addition, and subtraction thanks to the foundation she had and my family continues to have at KinderCare Learning Center Farm Pond location. My second child as well as my third child is currently in preschool classroom with Ms. Regina and I am confident they are getting that same foundation! Thank you for all of your caring and support you have provided my family for the last 6 years.

  • “My child struggled with his transition from being at home to going to childcare. Leaving his baby sister each morning while he went to his new school was extremely stressful and anxiety provoking for him as well as for my husband and I. Mrs. Tonya and her staff was extremely supportive of him as well as my husband and I as we all tried to make this transition easier for him. In addition, she was always willing to email me so I knew how he was doing. We truly appreciate all the love and support that has been shown by Mrs. Tonya and her staff at this center.  I can remember when I toured the facility and I was mentioning to Mrs. Tonya my concerns with his transition she made me feel so at ease and I knew I had chosen the right place for my son.  When I walk into the building no matter what time of day it is I see them providing individualized attention and focus on their students which shows me that this is not just a act they put on for me for enrollment they do it day in and day out.  Although I see 4 stars on the wall this is definitely a 5 star center to my husband, son and I. It really is a great feeling when you see your child run to their teacher with open arms and a big smile excited to be there. I would not trade this second family for the world!

  • "I would like to share the details of my experience at KinderCare Farm Pond location. I enrolled my three-year-old son at this center. My experience with the director Tonya Little-Reid has been exceptional. Ms. Little-Reid has been extremely kind and helpful throughout my entire enrollment process and to date. I have been reluctant to send my son to daycare due to the stigma behind daycare centers, but Ms. Little-Reid has banished this altogether. She is always warm and welcoming, despite the time of day or situation. One morning in particular, I was running behind for work and my son was not having a good morning. Mrs. Tonya calmed him down with her kind words, and I was able to leave. For a Director to be consistently kind and helpful is almost never heard of, and I felt it was only necessary that I commended her on her performance. In general all of the teachers are professional and courteous at all times and have made this transition for my son and I an enjoyable one. Warmest Regards, Jeneya B"
