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

Our kids are taking off!

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

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.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

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.

Teachers & Staff

Welcome to our family at City of Industry KinderCare. Our staff is passionate about education and nurturing children. Our teachers have an average of 7 years experience in early childhood and education. Together we have over 80 years experience in making a difference and educating children! Twice a year our teachers go true a full day of trainings to ensure they stay updated on all the latest researches in early childhood. At the end of the day, the true key to our teacher's success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.

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!

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

After looking around at many schools for my 4 year daughter, I found myself at KinderCare in the City of Industry. It was my daughters first time going to a school and I was very nervous. The staff at KinderCare helped me feel so much more at ease. When I was worried about my daughter while I was working, I would get an email with pictures of her to help me feel comfortable. It meant a lot to me to have the staff not only care for my daughter, but for my feelings as well. It’s hard leaving your child at school for the first time. It did not take long for my daughter to start recognizing her letters and numbers after she had started school. This amazed me that she could learn so quickly. Mr. Gilbert, her teacher, spent so much quality time with her. I have never in my life met a teacher who was so passionate about the education of the children in his care. Every time I would walk into the classroom the children were so enriched in the activities that were going on. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful whenever I had a concern. I would highly recommend KinderCare to other families, especially Mr. Gilbert!

- Mother

I just wanted to take a few moments and say how grateful my husband and I are to the staff at KinderCare for helping our daughter transition to school as smoothly as possible, considering this was the first time she was being separated from us! I am the mother of a 2 year old girl. As I mentioned before my daughter has never been seprated from me until we started KinderCare. My husband and I decide that we would try sending her to school so she could  socialize with other children. I had no idea what was going to happen and especially as a first time mom I was very nervous. When we entered the school, we were greeted by everyone that walked by us and everyone seemed very friendly. That made me feel a bit more at ease. My daughter however, was still hiding behind my leg and did not want to speak with anyone! The very first day we started her she immediately started crying and grabbing my leg. You can imagine how heartbreaking it was for me to see her like that. I was about to give up on the whole thought of taking her to school when I was approached by the center director. She was patiently explaining to me how this is a very normal behavior from children especially the ones that has never been separated from mom. She gave us the opportunity that week to go to the school for a few hours everyday and asked me to stay with her! I still was not convinced but I agreed to give it a try! It was a very interesting week for us because not only did my daughter get a chance to slowly trust the teachers and the other students in the class, it also gave me an amazing opportunity to see what they do everyday and how amazing their curriculum and interaction was with every child. Long story short, my daughter is going to school every single day now and everytime I go to pick her up she asks me to stay a little bit longer! She has came a long way and learned so much! It is amazing to see how fast she is developing and how much she is learning everyday! So thank you so much to all the wonderful staff who made such a difference in our lives!!!
