Our center is accredited by NAEYC.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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!
I wanted to make a testimonial about my wonderful experience with KinderCare. In 2009, I enrolled both of my children (at the time son was one and my daughter was four). I immediately enrolled my daughter in the Phonics enrichment program run through the daycare. Once my son reached the age to be enrolled, I enrolled him as well. When my daughter entered Kindergarten she was already above the expectation. She is now going into third grade and she is reading at almost a fifth grade level. This little girl had learned to break down words by using what she was taught in the Phonics program. I fully support the daycare and school by encouraging reading in our home and buying books that my kids will enjoy.
My son has always been very interested in reading, but I had no idea how advanced he was. I learned at the beginning of this term (equivalent to preschool age) that he could read. The director, Tonya and staff stood around us while he read me an entire book provided from the school used in the Phonics program. All of us stood there beaming with pride as he read the small book cover to cover. But this was only the beginning of it. Today my son is not only reading those smaller books, but he is reading at almost a third grade level. He is reading words out of the books that are made for the instructors. He is reading contractions, complex words and I believe that by sounding out words he has never seen, the way he learned to phonetically, he could read and comprehend almost any word put in front of him. I attribute his success to the Phonics program, the support of our KinderCare family and his personal drive and determination.
I now have two children who think reading is fun! I have learned through the workforce and managing other people how very important it is to effectively communicate. The Phonics program provides the fundamentals of reading and the earlier they start, the more equipped they are.
Tonya and the staff at Cool Springs KinderCare have provided constant encouragement and support. We are loyal and faithful clients and we gladly put our kids' safety and education in their more than capable hands. We are moving this year, but we intend to stay with KinderCare for our now School Age children. We are looking forward to new enrichment opportunities to come. Thank you to Tonya, Lisa, Kathy, Karla and the rest of our KinderCare family for encouraging us and our children to strive to be the best!
Rebecca E. - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare has been, and continues to be, a blessing to our family. I enrolled my child when she was three months old. Her first daycare teacher was Ms. Debbie. My daughter is now two years old and still wants to give Ms. Debbie a hug goodbye every day! All of the teachers and staff at KinderCare care deeply about the children that are entrusted to their care; the safety, learning and emotional well-being of the kids are all very important to them. I would absolutely recommend KinderCare to families looking for a safe, fun, nurturing environment for their children.
