AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
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.
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.
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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
Being a first time mom I wanted the best for my daughter. Which was why we choose for me to stay home to raise her until it was time for her to venture into the world of school. Since my husband works at Turkey Point, we knew there was a daycare on site but didn't know anything about it. The convenience of having our daughter close to her father in case on an emergency was the deciding factor. That alone was the reason we didn't even consider any other daycare. Looking back, we feel EXTREMELY lucky to have made that decision. When our daughter started with KinderCare at South Dade, she had just turned three years old, I was very nervous about her being without me (like I'm sure all new parents are). The teacher and the children in the K3 class made her feel so welcome, and had her smiling and laughing right away. Soon, the quality of the center became very evident, and I could no longer classify them as a daycare, they are an Early Learning School. We noticed our daughter was learning very fast and seemed to be advanced for her age. Which was also noticed by the staff. When the opportunity came up for a student to move from K3 to K4 (in the VPK class) towards the end of the school year, the Director, Anita Johnson, along with the teachers, recommended my daughter be the one to advance. They were very right. With the AMAZING teacher, Mrs. Tuwanna, my daughter was able to do parts of the VPK curriculum throughout the last part of that year. Which in turn gave her a little bit of a head start when she actually started VPK the following year. The results of the effort and dedication of the OUTSTANDING VPK teacher duo, Mrs. Tuwanna and Mrs. Gloria – my daughter aced her final assessment with exceeding all expectations. I can't tell you how proud that made me. I can not thank these wonderful ladies of this school enough for the gift they have given my daughter. Not every child is lucky enough to have such quality early education. To be able to show a little bit of my appreciation I accepted the role of head of the Parent Support Group. Being self employed allowed me the flexibility to be available whenever help was needed. But no amount of volunteering, event organizing, party planning, craft creating, or fundraising can EVER show how truly grateful I am for the impact they have made, not only on my daughter's life, but on mine as well.
