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.

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

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.

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.

All staff members are CPR and First Aid certified. Anyone who works with Infant to two year-old's has been trained in SIDS.

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

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

There are so many reasons for a military family to love KinderCare. My daughter is my only biological child and the most precious thing in my life. Knowing that I am leaving her with people who feel like family, who make daycare affordable, and who have taught her so much makes leaving her everyday so easy.

I guess I always looked at being the mom of a military child as being the mom of any other type of child. But as I sit and think about the reasons I feel that way I realize that we are so lucky to have awesome childcare that makes Fort Bragg feel like home. Leaving my daughter at KinderCare is more like leaving her with a grandmother, a favorite aunt, or a best friend than it is dropping her off at daycare. They’re a family away from family.

As an enlisted solider, and a teacher, my husband and I aren’t exactly rolling in the riches. Not only does KinderCare provide excellent care for my daughter at a very reasonable price, they helped us get assistance. The military fee assistance program is long, complicated, and intimidating. However, the staff made the process so easy and is always on top of letting us know when we need to update a file or send something in.       

Being a teacher I value a great education. But being a working mom, and with my husband being at Uncle Sam’s disposal, we don’t always have as much time as we’d like to work with her development. But at just two years old, my daughter is already learning how to recognize shapes, numbers, and colors. She can always count to fifteen. That is a direct result of her hard working teachers.

We are so thankful to have KinderCare as our partners in raising our daughter. The military may have sent us away from our family but we have definitely found a new home with KinderCare. There is no where else I’d want my daughter spending her days.

- Mother

KinderCare means a lot to me and my family. Dasan started at KinderCare when she was four an d along came Jaimie shortly after. Jaimie started KinderCare as a baby and the experience with both girls was truly amazing. I don't think I could have asked for a better daycare. Dasan at that time started calling daycare school because it felt like she was going to school. The teachers were and are very helpful and that certainly helped with having a newborn. When we went to Utah and returned to KinderCare (22 months later) witha nother daughter (Josslyn) it was like we never left! Everyone welcomed all my girls with open arms. The ladies of KinderCare almost feel like they are a part of my family and that is really and truly amazing. We have had some hiccups here and there but I love the ladies that take care of my daughters and I know that my daughters love being there. Especially Josslyn who calls herself "Miss Meka". Please continue doing everything that you do, it is truly appreciated. Thank you so very much!
