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.

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.

    ~~My goal is to lay the foundation for your infant to develop trusting relationships. I will respond to your baby with sensitivity and attention; use words, facial expressions, and eye contact to communicate; and use family photos to promote self-awareness and provide continuity with your child's home.  I will help build brain power in a loving and caring environment. I will prepare your infant to think and reason by exploring the concepts of cause-and-effect, trial-and-error, and object permanence through play; provide a variety of materials of different colors, sizes, textures, and shapes; and encourage the use of all five senses to discover the world.

Health and Safety

Our top priority at KinderCare is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children, families, and staff. We do this through rigorous training and constant assessment and evaluation of proper policies and procedures. Your child’s security begins at the front door, literally. We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter. All side doors are kept locked to ensure the security of the exterior of the building. All guests or emergency pick-up people are identified and escorted through the building. Of course, our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting. We are trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected. Throughout the day, your child will be supervised at all times. No child is ever left unattended, even for a minute. Teachers have all been trained in supervision, discipline and guidance, and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure they understand the risks associated with the children in their care. If your child has food allergies or specific medical conditions, we will work with you to ensure your child’s well being while in our care. We also take the responsibility of your child’s emotional security very seriously. We want every child to feel safe, loved, and respected while at KinderCare.

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

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


We love KinderCare! The learning center has been a loving and nurturing environment for our 20 month old daughter and 4.5 year old son. The teachers are genuine and love what they do. We feel so blessed that our children are taught and cared for by some of the most wonderful individuals! The school is always clean, safe, organized and decorated with new art projects. My family is so happy to have found KinderCare. Our children love coming to school and learning new things, which is creating a strong foundation for enthusiasm for their education. The teachers appreciate my children's individuality and promote creativity. The quality of care and education that my children are receiving is above and beyond what we expected when we first started at KinderCare! We have created some everlasting relationships with the KinderCare families and teachers. Thank you for everything you do!
Sincerely yours,

~~I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff in KinderCare for the professional service you provide for my daughter Julia Ma. Julia enrolled at KinderCare when she was eight months old. As a first time Mom, I was initially concerned about this decision and leaving her to others’ care, but soon I was assured by the positive experience Julia had with her teachers. Not only KinderCare is a safe and clean place for Julia to play and grow in, but also is the KinderCare a learning and nurturing center, where physical activity, quiet time, group programs, individual activities, free time are well designed to stimulate growth. Julia is now a happy, confident, smart, and caring little three years old, and I am constantly surprised by new knowledge and skills she learned from KinderCare every day. In addition, the teachers I have interacted with are enthusiastic, professional, responsible, well-prepared, and polite, and they communicate well with parents and are considerate of individual needs.

Again, I want to applause you and your center for providing great support to our family and keep up the good work!

~~
I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you and your company know what an excellent overall experience that we have had during the past 7 years of Elisa’s life.  Although we were apprehensive and nervous (especially being 1st time parents) when we first started to send Elisa to KinderCare at 3 months old, we knew we were in good hands due to the verbal recommendations that I had previously received from several of my co-workers.

You and your staff have been 100% professional during these past 7 years but more importantly you all have been loving, caring, fair and nurturing of all of the kids and it shows in our daughter and her excellent performance at school and has a human being.  From potty training all the way through her ability to read even before kindergarten have been nothing short of a blessing and we owe it to both you and your staff.  Our little one loves to go to school and I attribute that to the positive environment that she grew up in at KinderCare.  I also attribute it to your dedicated staff many of whom have been with you for many years and that consistency in seeing the same teachers has to have a positive, calming effect on both the kids and the parents.

Another positive experience, with you and the staff, have been the peace of mind that you have given to us as we know that Elisa is in great hands and will be well cared for.  Elisa truly loves going to KinderCare, loves her teachers and her friends and that is all due to the positive environment that you and your staff have worked hard to achieve.  As we all know, kids are brutally honest with their thoughts and opinions and there is no other place that Elisa enjoys more than KinderCare.  There are honestly times when Elisa is not happy about leaving KinderCare and that would not be happening if she wasn’t having positive experiences at your daycare.

I want to let you know that Rosy and myself truly appreciate everything that you and your staff have done for us and Elisa.  We are honored to call you and the teachers our friends as well as the many parents that we also have developed friendships with over the past 7 years.  We continue to promote your location of KinderCare every chance that we get and I know that several of my newer co-workers are now sending their children to KinderCare. I’m sure that it is these word of mouth recommendations that have assisted with your ability to keep your enrollment high even when economic times were negatively impacting everybody.  In the past, we have had the opportunity to move Elisa to another daycare that is run by her godparents and a close friend of mine but yet we chose to stay with you and KinderCare due to the reasons I have stated above.

I hope that your company will recognize and appreciate what you have created and nurtured over your past 20+ years with KinderCare and that you and your staff are real jewels in the desert.  Once again, thank you for helping us to educate and raise our wonderful daughter. We couldn’t have done it without you and your staff!!

Please feel free to forward my comments to your upper management at KinderCare and I would be happy to discuss our positive experiences further.


Respectfully and always a friend,

~~To whom it may concern,

There is no other daycare/learning center such as Kindercare. It is definitely one of a kind. Why do we think that? Because Kindercare has been apart of our family for over 12 years. Our three children have/had experienced a wonderful time there. Barbara and staff have been an absolute blessing in our lives. Always open on time, greeting us each and every time we step foot in the facility, a great learning curriculum for each age group, an awesome summer program as well as after school transportation. The list goes on!! All three of our children (senior, 6th grader and kindergartner) enjoy school and are A honor roll students. I absolutely believe it's because of the love, care and teaching by Barbara and staff. We constantly talk to other friends and family about Kindercare and completely recommend them to everyone we meet. Thank you so much Barbara. You have absolutely been so wonderful to us. It's gonna be heartbreaking the year our last kiddo is too old to attend Kindercare.

Forever grateful,

~~We would like to express our gratitude for everything you and your team do for our family.

We previously had a really bad experience with another daycare; we researched many other daycare centers at El Paso as we could. When we first walked in to your KinderCare Center, we immediately noticed a different environment. You personally walked us through the center, the staff was friendly, answered our questions, and we noticed everyone had real interest in taking care of the children.

After almost 3 years, we are very happy and blessed we choose your center to help us take care of the most precious things we have, Elisa and Horacio.

Thank you very much!

Regards,

Horacio & Karla Pina

~~As any new parent one of the biggest decisions is whether to stay home with your child or put them in daycare.  And like any new parent, my husband and I battled with the same decision.  After many weeks and months researching daycare centers and some biased opinion on my part, we agreed to reach out to Kinder Care.  Unfortunately at the time, they did not have any openings in the baby class.  A week or so went by and we visited option B, however I was not feeling the “warm and fuzzies”. At the end of that week my husband called and said they have one spot open and if we wanted it we would needed to go in that day to register. I was sold! After doing our tour with Barbara (who happened to be my Kinder Care teacher) I knew this was the perfect place for our daughter.  Madelyne has been attending Kinder Care for the last 5 years and they have been the best 5 years! All the teachers are so attentive to each individual child and know every want and need of the kids.  My daughter is now in Kindergarten and thriving well and I know a lot of who she is (personality and demeanor) is because of the love, attention, and teachings from Kinder Care.  Whenever asked where my daughter goes to daycare or if I can recommend a great daycare center, I proudly boast about Kinder Care.  As a new parent, I knew from day one and to this day know I made the right decision. Madelyne was not just another child in the program, she was their baby as well.  From Barbara, Ms. GG and ALL the wonderful teachers at Kinder Care I owe my families gratification!

~~Just a note to say how grateful we are for the wonderful care and compassion that you and the staff at Kindercare show Ari every day. Starting at a new school is never easy, but you, Ms. Cindy and everyone else helped make Ari's transition a smooth one. We especially appreciate the warm welcome note and class photo that came home with him on his first day of school last June, and the happy greetings he continues to receive every morning.

We've seen a huge leap in Ari's intellectual and social development since last summer so we know that he is learning a lot in his Pre-K class while having fun too. No matter what time of day we might show up at the center to pick him up, the kids are always actively engaged in an age-appropriate and fun activity, even when it's the end of a long day and the teachers are probably just exhausted and ready to go home. This is a FAR cry from our previous daycare center where after 2:30p the staff essentially "punched out" and the kids were bored and left to entertain themselves. It was really sad to see and especially frustrating for an active child like ours who needs and wants stimulation and a structured schedule throughout the entire day.

As a two-working parent household, we feel constant guilt over having our kids in school/daycare for such a long time (7:45a-5:45p). But the fact that when we pick up Ari at the end of the day he complains to us that we "picked him up too early" reflects how comfortable and happy he is to be there!

Thanks for everything you do!

Warmly,

Melissa & Jed Untereker

~~   My experience at Kinder Care was very pleasant. Since the first day my girls attended, they were very happy there. The facility is nice and clean. They have this very nice outside play area with lots of space to run and play.  The teachers are awesome, they are very loving, responsible and dedicated.  My kids loved them so much. Ms Barbara Kehr, the Center Director is the nicest and loving Director I ever met. She really cares about every single person that comes into the building (from the parents to the kids and even her staff). You can consider this place your kids second home. Also, they accept CCS programs which I think is very convenient. They deserve an A+.  In my opinion, this is the kind of daycare you would want you kids to attend.

~~      I would like to thank you for all of the support and care you've provided to my son, Joshua, and I over the years.  He turns 7 on Friday, and he has been with Kindercare since the age of 2.  Kindercare has been an instrumental component of his development.  Not only does he have an appreciation for learning, art, and nature, but he has also made many dear friends and has the nurturing support of the staff.

          Even today, he continues to enjoy his time spent through Kindercare.  Although he is a tremendous fan of the Summer Camp/ Program and the Saturday art & cooking classes, as a professional and single mom, I appreciate Kindercare's before and after school program.  You have been very flexible and accommodating in working with Joshua's schedule when he had tutoring and early release.  It is such a comfort to know that even when school's have in-services, parents may rely on Kindercare to provide age-appropriate activities which inspire and entertain, while providing healthy and nutritious snacks and meals.

          For all that you do, many thanks and appreciation. Please continue the amazing work.

Sincerely,

~~I would like to take the time to recognize the excellent work that your staff does for our kids.
It is very difficult to leave our beloved children in the care of other people, nonetheless in a daycare in which one doesn’t feel that their child is happy being in. My oldest, Anthony, started off at a different daycare. I recall the emotional stress that I experienced with the daycare as I watched my child cry as I dropped him off, and cry as I picked him up.
I remember the time that I walked into your doors.I was impressed to see how your staff was engaged and I saw and heard happy children. I enrolled my son hoping to have a better experience. To my surprise I received more than I expected. Your teachers became our partners in education.  The funny thing was that my son continued to cry when I would pick him up, but this time it was because he wanted to stay and play. That was a sign that we were in the right place with the right people.
My son has graduated from your learning center, and now I have Santiago that is four. Our family has been in partnership with your teachers for approximately thirteen years. It has been a pleasure for us to see our children flourish in their development. This is due to your dedication to your staff that is reflected in our children; and for this we would like to say with all our hearts …… Thank You!

Sincerely,
The Trejo-Jaramillo Family
