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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

Here at the Fitness Lane KinderCare we have a staff that is a great combination of long term and fresh faced teachers.  Our teachers are highly credentialed with each one having either their Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education, Child Development Associates Credential, or are currently working towards their Child Development Associates Credential.  We also have ongoing trainings throughout the year as well as bi-annual professional development days for all staff members.  We are happy to share that our teachers have chosen to work in Early Childhood Education because it is a passion for them, not simply a hobby.

About Our Center

We would love to welcome you to come visit us at our center.  We are a Level 3 Path’s To Quality center and have a high standard for care and curriculum.  Almost all of our teachers have a background in Early Childhood Education and those who do not are currently pursuing degrees or certifications.  We strive to maintain a continuity of care throughout our rooms and the happiness and security of our children are our top priorities.
Our KinderCare has three very large outdoor spaces that are well removed from the road and are filled with play equipment as well as large grassy areas that are great for teacher and child directed activities.  
At KinderCare, we believe in learning through play and this is best exemplified in our enhanced learning centers.  Every teacher enhances their classroom learning centers to reflect the current theme being studied.  This allows the children to stay engaged in learning through "play" during child directed times of the day.

Health and Safety

At our center, your child’s health and safety is our top priority.  We have many security measures in place to keep our children safe and secure. Some of these include a locked lobby door accessed through a keypad, secured playgrounds, and strict parent/ guardian identification procedures.  We also do name to face checks in every classroom every thirty minutes as well as when transitioning to other areas of the building. 
 
Throughout every school day the teachers are modeling and teaching the children about good health.  During meals, the teachers sit with the students and discuss why we are eating certain foods and the benefits they give our bodies.  While engaging in outdoor and gross motor play the teachers are helping guide the children to an understanding that exercise and daily activity helps to keep our bodies strong. 
 
Our teachers take pride in knowing that their classrooms are well maintained. They do this through daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning tasks.  All members of our staff are also annually certified in CPR and First Aid.
 

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.

We have been a part of the Fishers KinderCare (9000 Fitness Lane) family since May of 2008 when when we brought our son Zachary to the center when he was 3 months old.  Our experience at the center has been a great one ever since, and our daughter Gwendolyn(who's now 2) has been at the center as well since she was 11 weeks old.  The teachers/caregivers at this center are second to none, and we have been truly impressed with the level of care that both of our children have received in these 6+ past years. I have always felt like my kids were well taken care of and safe while in the care of the teachers at this center, and I also believe that the curriculum in place has contributed to their learning and development throughout the years.  I credit this KinderCare with helping to prepare my son for elementary school and I believe that it has contributed to his success and achievement academically and socially.  I am confident the same will be the case for my daughter as she continues to grow and develop in the coming years.  I have told many people over the years that there are some other daycare/preschools that may appear to have fancier bells and whistles (and heftier price tags) than KinderCare, but at the end of the day, is that what really matters when it comes to the care of your children? I would say that what really matters is whether the caregivers truly look out for your kids and make them feel like the matter and are loved by people outside of their immediate family.  And I would say that over the years, that's what our experience has been like at this KinderCare.
