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.

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.


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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

KinderCare teachers are passionate about your child's happiness and growth and provide a safe, nurturing environment that cultivates self-esteem. This is more than a job for our teachers. It’s an opportunity for them to share their passion for life while they inspire, engage, and awaken the wonder inside each and every child. KinderCare devotes more time and resources to teacher training than any other childcare provider. Twice a year we host the largest early childhood teacher training program in the country. Our teachers are dedicated to developing your child's potential and are sensitive to your child's individual needs. Our low teacher-to-student ratios allow teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of each child in our center.

September's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Spaces and Places and All About Me
As infants and toddlers explore the spaces and places around them, children in Discovery Preschool will learn all about what makes people the same as well as what makes them different. Infants will experiment with moving toy cars around, build block towers and then knock them down, and even take a tour of the center to see what things are like outside of their classroom! Toddlers will get all revved up as they take a closer look at different vehicles and learn more about neighborhoods, communities, and the jobs that grownups have. In Discovery Preschool, children will be learning about themselves as they play games that strengthen their five senses, discuss feelings and emotions, practice self-help skills, and work on learning the names of body parts.

Children 4 to 5 years old: All About Me and My Home and Family
It’s the beginning of the school year—the perfect time to get to know each other better! Older children will be spending time sharing about themselves, their homes, and their families as they learn what makes people the same and what makes them different. Children will bring their own experiences to the drawing board as they create group stories and 3-D collages about families and homes, pantomime different home- and family-related activities, and draw self-portraits. With our curriculum’s project-related learning component, children in Transitional Kindergarten work together to decide on an individual or whole-group project related to the theme. Past projects have included creating a class book about emotions or working together to build a small-scale home, but who knows—the children may come up with a unique idea that’s entirely their own!

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

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

I have shared with our teachers and director how pleased we are with the Anderson Witt Rd Kinder care center in Cincinnati, Ohio in the past, but I also wanted to share this with you too. Prior to choosing Kindercare I could not Imagine sending my boys to a daycare center. I originally sent my children to a home sitter because I felt they would get more love and attention. We had to begin using a daycare center after our second son was born and I remember visiting every facility in town including the one at the hospital where I work. Everywhere I went did not feel like home and I left each place sad about the prospect of leaving my then 2 year old and 5 month old boys. When I went to Kndercare they were warm and welcoming. They were and continue to be genuinely interested in my children and I can tell they love my boys.

Some of the most significant things to me regarding their care and education include the following:

The sign language helped my youngest son when he was having repeated ear infections and difficulty hearing. He was able to communicate without any frustrations due to learning sign language. It helped prevent him from delays until he was able to have tubes placed. So I will always be thankful to the teachers for being diligent with the sign language.

I really appreciated the music classes when my boys were younger. It gave them the opportunity to have an outlet for their creativity and they were always excited to tell us about the new songs and instruments.

Ms. Debbie has been wonderful teaching the boys Spanish. They use Spanish words interchangeably at times. It is amazing to me how quickly they if I up a second language.

Ms. Cassidy has been a dream between cooking and phonics. The boys love cooking class and they are willing to try new foods as a result.
They are also learning great skills related to measuring and remembering a list of ingredients as well as following instructions in a specific order. My 3 year old can even tell us what he made, all the ingredients and how to make the recipe at home. So for a year now we also have "mommy cooking class" on weekends at home and it is so much fun.

As for phonics my boys have an excellent start to reading and the love of reading. Although it starts in phonics it is evident throughout the center how much reading occurs. They look for opportunities for my 5 year old to grow in his reading including going to the younger kids classes to read to the toddlers or babies. He LOVES that and it is a great way for him to value reading and take on "big kid"

Finally, I cannot say enough about the management- they work with us on anything we feel is important for growth in our boys. When we struggled with some attention and mild behavior issues they were quick to help us reinforce our rules from home at school and even problem solved positive rewards. They clearly care a great deal about their staff, kids and families. I am so glad to have found this kindercare. It doesn't look like much from the outside compared to the newer, fancier daycare centers but they sure do make up for it and then some in the care and education they provide.

Christine Voegele
- Mother

Being a working mother, the most important aspect of finding the right daycare/education center is knowing that you can trust the teachers with your child(ren) every day. It is important to know that a daycare has your child’s best interest at the core of everything they do. I am continually impressed at my level of comfort bringing my son to the center. Everyone is so kind and it is obvious they not only love what they do but they love the children they take care of. There was a period of time when my son was really struggling in the morning, crying, not wanting me to leave, etc.. I received a call from his teacher Ms. Cassidy one morning, just to let me know that once I leave he does fine- participates, plays with his friends. She did not have to take time out of her busy schedule to do this but knew how important it was for me to know. That level of empathy and compassion is beyond comforting for a parent. Since my son has started in the learning adventures, I am amazed at the level of enthusiasm he has around writing, sounding out letters and even wanting to help me cook. All the teachers at KinderCare contribute to such an amazing experience. I feel comfortable discussing anything about my child with them which allows me to be a vital part of my child’s education.

- Parent

We are so happy with our KinderCare family. The level of care and compassion exceeds expectation. Our children enjoy their time at the center and are developing into bright, curious, and independent children thanks to the excellent teachers they encounter each day.
