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

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. Qué pasa?

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!

  • I want to thank KinderCare for an amazing 30. This team truly loves the kids. Because of them my child is ready for Kindergarten. As a first time new parent the thought of putting my child in school was so scary. They walked me through the whole transition and never left my side. They are approachable and always available. The facility is clean and they offer so many extra programs for learning. 100% happy and sad to go. However we will be back for winter break, spring break, summer break and for a visit whenever we are in the area! Thank you Heather and your team!

  • Our son started attending this daycare at nine-months-old. we went to over 25 daycares in the Fountain Valley and Irvine Areas. When we walked inside Fountain Valley KinderCare, we knew right away that this was the perfect place for us. From the moment the director welcomed us to the spacious classrooms, to the cleanliness of the place, I knew my son would be in a great place. I was currently still breastfeeding, so they helped me switch my son over to using a bottle. Our son was very attached to me, so it was hard for him to eat without me. However, the teachers where very patient and loving. Within a couple of weeks is was eager to get to school. I am extremely grateful to have found this daycare! The instant we move back to Orange County, we are going back to Fountain Valley KinderCare.

  • The Fountain Valley KinderCare is such a wonderful daycare. The Director, Assistant Director and teachers are great, the programs and curriculum are amazing and the facility is really clean. The Directors and teachers are caring, nurturing, and warm. There’s constant communication between the teachers and parents. When my child had issues, not only did they inform us, but they also worked with us to help our child. The Director or Assistant Director is always available until closing if you ever need any advice or to address any issues or concerns. The teachers are always interacting with the children instead of just sitting around watching them.
    Besides their great curriculum they also offer phonics, math, reading and Spanish as part of their enrichment programs. My child has learned so much from the phonics programs that it’s unbelievable.
    Lastly, this center makes you feel like it’s your second home. The exterior and interior are well maintained. You will not see any marks on their white doors and trash cans. The playground is free from debris. As you step into this center, you'll feel the warmth of the nice decor and see pictures of all the children around the center. Another plus is that they provide nutritional and generous portions of breakfast, lunch and snacks. The children here sleep on cots during nap time instead of those thin flimsy mats.
    Since we had to move, we assumed all day cares were comparable to the Fountain Valley location. The answer is No. Unfortunately, not all KinderCare's and other day cares are even comparable to the quality of this location.
    Fountain Valley KinderCare should definitely be a role model to all the daycare facilities.
