At First Avenue KinderCare Learning Center we are passionate about our kids!
We believe in the "whole child" approach to early learning, which means that we focus on all areas of development, we concentrate not only on the academic piece but the social and emotional development of children, as well as fostering self-esteem and independence. We shine the light on the path that shows them the way to being smart, independent and thoughtful citizens of the world.
We learn more from birth to age seven than at any other time in our lives, so it is critical to take advantage of that and make the most of it. And the best thing of all is that children learn through play. Play is the "work" of children. They learn and grow from everything they see, touch or hear, and the best part of all is they are having fun doing it! It is our job to set up our environment to make the most of that.
We have a delicious/nutritious menu that is geared towards feeding growing bodies and minds. We have beautiful outdoor areas to see and explore. We also have an excellent School Age program that focuses on homework, activities to challenge the minds of older children and just plain fun. We have summer/spring camps to keep the kids busy and engaged during the times when elementary school is out.
Call us anytime to book a tour of our school!

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

  • Cooking Adventures

    Cooking Adventures

    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.

  • Music Adventures

    Music Adventures

    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

    Phonics and 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.
