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.

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.

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

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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH

An Artist's Heart

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • I'm so pleased with my KinderCare Center that I wanted to send over some praise for the teachers and directors. My daughter, Annabelle, has been at the Denville KinderCare for almost two months now, and my husband and I couldn't be happier! We interviewed one other type of daycare before deciding on KinderCare and this was the right choice. It's the perfect size center and anyone we've come in contact with is very kind and welcoming. I feel secure leaving our daughter with them all week long and enjoy dropping her off and picking her up. You're greeted with smiles, not only from your child but from the staff and other parents. I'd like to acknowledge a few specific people we interact with daily. Karen and Dionne are very hands-on and are so sweet and easy to talk if we have any questions. We LOVE Annabelle's Infant room teachers, especially Ms. Nikisha, Ms. Kara and Ms. Kristin. And our daughter loves them too-greeting them with big smiles and giggles. Once, when I was taking her from Ms. Nikisha to bring her home, she started crying! That's praise for her KinderCare center right from the baby's mouth-she loves her teachers! So kudos to the Denville KinderCare team-they're like extended family!

    Jessica M. - KinderCare Parent
  • Rohan, my son, joined this center as an infant in 2003 and continued until 2008 where he completed their kindergarten program. At that time, we decided to enroll our son at KinderCare because we got very good feedback from the Better Business Bureau on the center. We are so glad that we decided to enroll him in this center. The teachers worked so hard on the initial stages of the development, whether it is academic or social developmental skill sets. Every time we would get together with friends and families, they would give our son accolades for his intelligence and behavior, which I would sincerely give credit to the teachers of this institution. Ms. Dionne, Ms. Cara, Ms. Hilda and Ms. Karen, just to name a few teachers and staff members, exude excellence in early childhood education. This year my son graduated from Fernbrook Elementary School where he received the President's Award for Educational Excellence. I know Rohan’s teachers at Fernbrook Elementary School worked hard to help him achieve this award, but I would also attribute this award with the staff of KinderCare. They helped to build his early childhood education foundation which helped him achieve this award and get him to where he is today. My sincerest appreciation to Ms. Karen, Ms. Dionne and Ms. Cara for everything you have done for my son, Rohan!
