Come find out what's new at your neighborhood KinderCare during our Open House event on January 21, 2014! We see new moments of growth each and every day. Whether it is a toddler’s first step or a prekindergarten student learning to write her name, our teachers encourage children to develop new skills and reach important milestones and share those moments with families. We look forward to starting your child’s new journey!
Welcome to Fairfax KinderCare Learning Center in Eau Claire (serving families in Eau Claire, Altoona, Menomonie, and the surrounding Chippewa Valley. We are excited to meet with you and your family. We believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child's growth with their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Here at the Eau Claire KinderCare, we take great joy and pride in knowing how important we are to your child's development. We feel that it truly does take a community to raise a child and we are honored that so many families in the Chippewa Valley utilize us to meet their child care (preschool) needs. Your child will not only have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support and direction from a team of early childhood experts who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Twelve fun and unique weeks of camp, all summer long! From May through August, KinderCare offers awesome camps for pre-school, pre-k, and school-age kids. It's a great place to bring friends, and to meet new ones! We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours, so join us for all 12 weeks or as many weeks as you like.
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.
I clearly remember the day we chose to take our son, Ethan, to KinderCare over five years ago. We were so impressed with the facility, the kindness of the teachers, the secure environment and the structured programs. Ethan loves going to KinderCare and he has loved each one of his teachers throughout the years. Ethan starts every day off with familiar faces and we have grown to think of KinderCare as an extension of our family. You are all very special to our family and we are thankful that our son has become special to you!
