AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited - nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

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.

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.

Our Teachers

We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • KinderCare in Fenton has been wonderful for us. Our son has Sensory Processing Disorder, which causes him to be a "handful" at times. We started KinderCare in March of 2013 and it has truly been a blessing. The consistency at KinderCare is awesome. There is no turnover there like at the previous daycare we were at. Our son is now in the three-year-old room with Ms. Sheryl, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is truly dedicated to being there for the children no matter what. She and Julie, the Director, have really worked with us and with our son, trying different techniques in dealing with him. They even allowed us to have a specialist come and observe him, and provide them with different ideas on what would work for him. Ms. Sheryl has been so instrumental in working with us that I feel he would not be doing as well as is he is without all the hard work and dedication she has put in. Thank you!

  • Our family has been coming to Fenton KinderCare for over five years. Both of our boys, ages five and three and a half, have called KinderCare their school since they were three months old. We have been very satisfied with our boys' education and care over the years. We have been very happy with the long-tenured core group of teachers that truly care about the children in their charge. They have always been professional and loving. As each of my boys have progressed through their classes, I can always count on an experienced teacher to not only provide quality care for my child, but give me honest feedback on how he is doing with development, behavior, etc. The extracurricular activities and classes for the boys have been great as well. Our oldest is in Phonics with Ms. Colleen and has really made huge strides in this area. Other class offerings, such as cooking classes, are a favorite of my boys. I also am very appreciative of the focus on the Spanish language and they regularly learn and recite Spanish words. We also have been impressed with the Director, Julie. She has provided advice on multiple occasions when asked regarding behavior or other concerns with our boys. She provides guidance on how situations are being handled at school so we can mirror at home if necessary. It feels like a lifetime ago that we made the decision to bring our boys to KinderCare. We honestly ended up choosing KinderCare due to Julie’s kind and caring demeanor and the long tenure of the staff. While making the decision to send your child to a daycare is a difficult and personal decision, we have never regretted it for one second. Even now as our oldest prepares to attend kindergarten, I am confident that he has gained the fundamental skills and education needed for him to be successful. I know that our youngest will be just as prepared as well.

  • Our eight month old daughter is enrolled at the Fenton KinderCare Center.  My husband and I are so pleased and so appreciative of everything the Director, Assistant Director and teachers do for our baby girl on a daily basis.  She is genuinely cared for and treated as if she is their own. The communication, care and extra time that the staff provides makes each family feel that their child is special.  It is because of this center, we have seen such a positive transformation in our baby and we couldn't be more grateful!
