Thank you so much for your interest in the El Dorado Hills KinderCare located at 3959 Park Drive. Finding the right place — and the right people — for your child’s education and care is a big decision. To help your family with this choice, we’d love for you to meet our teachers, see our classrooms, and learn more about our center and the programs we offer.
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.

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.
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.
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.

My two boys attend KinderCare n El Dorado Hills managed by Amy Dodge. I could not be happier with the level of care and early education that your center provides. My four-year-old is so happy with his teacher, Ms. Joy. So am I. It is clear that this wonderful teacher is there because she enjoys the kids. Every day, she tells me about my son, how he did, little things that she noticed about him that day. I have never had to have a parent/teacher conference, because every day the teachers tell me how my boys are doing, what they are learning about, how they are developing and what they are working on, and also if there are any issues that we need to discuss. Every day!The management, teachers, and even parents that are part of this facility make it a joy for my kids to be there. My boys come home talking about what they learned and also repeat important social lessons. My older son says to the younger one, "that's not a good choice," when the younger one does something that the older one does not like.The way every teacher there lovingly guides and teaches the kids is so impressive and makes me feel confident leaving my boys in their care. As a full-time working mother, I feel guilty about not being able to spend more time with my children. It gives me so much comfort knowing that this wonderful group of people care so much and do such a good job teaching and caring for my boys. Thank you KinderCare.
