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.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

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

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!

  • I'm very impressed by how much my 4-year old son has learned at KinderCare Franklin Center: within a few months after he started pre-K, he became so interested in numbers, letters, etc. and pointed to it wherever he saw them. Now he is only 4.5 years old and knows all the letters and numbers and started to do addition, that's really a surprise! We didn't speak English at home and didn't teach him anything like this either, the teachers at KinderCare have done a great job teaching young kids and get them ready for school!

  • My son was 3 months old when he started at KinderCare and from the very first day (he came home with a handmade Valentine!), I knew this was the right place for our family. He is now 2.5 and in the toddler room and our experience with the Center has only become better and better. Not only are the teachers and staff wonderful, but the programs and activities are top notch. I know a number of other families who have children attending other daycare centers in the Greater Boston area, and I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I have relayed a story or experience of son's at KinderCare and have been met with surprise at how amazing it all sounds (and how they do not necessarily have the same experiences at their own facilities!)! In the over two years we have been a part of the Franklin KinderCare family, I cannot think of one time we have felt disappointed or as if we made the wrong choice about who would care for our child.

  • Thank you to the toddler staff at KinderCare Franklin for what you do all day for my son.
    My elder son loved going to KinderCare every morning, he adored and loved his teachers and had a fun time learning all day at the Franklin center. As parents we were worried how he was going to cope up in school. But later got to know that KinderCare prepared him for school and it was an easy and smooth transition and he felt comfortable at school and his surroundings. Currently we have our second son at the KinderCare Franklin center infant/toddler room and he enjoys himself learning with the excellent staff and the kids in his class. I will definitely recommend KinderCare Franklin to all. It's a fun place to learn and play.

  • I have no worries dropping my kids off at daycare in the mornings. After 3 years with KinderCare, I know that I leave them in great hands, with staff that are capable and professional, and who focus the kids with daily routines and fun events. They listen to our concerns/issues regarding how each of our boys learn, modified teaching styles to these learning behaviors, and have helped to mold them into good little men … most times … :)

    Ursula - KinderCare Parent
  • I have nothing but good things to say about the infant staff here at KinderCare. I have known these teachers for many years first as colleagues and now that I have a child of my own, I was thrilled at the thought of having them care for my son. At first his transition to a new place was difficult, but they reassured me every day and now he is doing amazing!
