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

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.

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.

    1. January's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Light and Dark, plus the Sky and Weather

      Through shadow play, experiments with flashlights, observing the Sun and more, infants and toddlers will enjoy learning about light and dark this month. Infants continue sensory development by looking at contrasting patterns and at objects that are clearly defined by sharp edges and bright colors, while toddlers will build on their understanding of the light and dark concepts with play around daytime and nighttime. The older Discovery Preschool children will turn their attention to the sky as they learn about weather, the Moon, the Sun, and stars.

      Children 4–5 years old: Transportation, Healthy Bodies, and Winter

      For children in the Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms, January is filled with variety! They’ll begin by learning about transportation and studying how things get from “here” to “there.” A few weeks later, the focus will shift to health and bodies, with an emphasis placed on how to make good choices for a growing body. Towards the end of the month, children will be introduced to the transformative nature of the winter season and learn how to dress and take care of themselves when it’s cold outside.

    1. December's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Family, Friends, and Things that Go!

      Infants and toddlers will be exploring family and friends, while three-year-olds will focus on things that go vroom! Social and emotional development is foundational to growth and development in babies, so this month, infants and toddlers will participate in activities that reinforce their connection to family while also exploring connections that exist outside their home, such as friends. Meanwhile, their older friends in Discovery Preschool will learn about and play around with things that move (like bicycles, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes), which are all very exciting for little ones as they continue to explore the world outside their homes. 

      Children 4–5 years old: My Country + Tools and Machines

      The four- and five-year-olds continue exploring the world around them by learning about the state and country they live in! They’ll sings songs, play games based on travel, and learn about flags, state foods, and more. Children will also be introduced to cardinal directions (east, west, north, and south) and gain an appreciation for travel and meeting new friends from different places. 

      Children are naturally fascinated with machines and how things work and are put together. So to encourage that fascination, during the second half of this month children will learn about and play around with tools and machines. In addition to building literacy skills by using the names of machines and tools, children will develop math skills by graphing information, counting wheels, and more.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

I was thirteen weeks pregnant when I began looking into daycare centers. My husband and I knew I would be returning to work after the birth of our first child and it was important to me to find the best place possible for our baby. I wanted to find a place that would do the things I would do with my child if I were with her all day. I researched 13 daycare centers in the Nashville/Franklin area and visited seven; and by far, KinderCare at Fieldstone Farms exceeded them all! I knew almost instantly it was the perfect place for us, not just for our impending child, but for my husband and I. While the staff at KinderCare does an impeccable job caring for my child, they also have embraced our family. We are all greeted by our first names when we enter or exit the facility; the teachers and staff take the time to talk to us, not only about our daughter, but also about our jobs, families, vacations, interests, etc. In short, KinderCare is our second home; a part of our extended family, helping us raise our little girl. Their staff is kind, caring and patient. They take the time to know the children as individuals and assess how best to work with each child in day-to-day activities. Their level of communication is exceptional! They always share a personal note about my daughter’s day, call whenever something is out of the ordinary or a minor accident has happened. I’ve even received texted pictures of my daughter enjoying a cupcake with her friends on her first birthday. On a broader level, the national organization checks in with parents regularly as well with online surveys and feedback forms. The KinderCare curriculum is outstanding! My mother has been teaching for 31 years, and she is constantly amazed with the things my daughter is doing and saying. It all goes back to KinderCare and their focus on child development. Emotionally, mentally, physically and socially, they cover every aspect of aspect of child development in a fun and creative environment that children really seem to thrive in. I am happy every day that my child attends KinderCare at Fieldstone Farms. I know that she is safe, happy, engaged, and most importantly loved.

I was having a tough time choosing the right child care center for my children. Nothing felt right as we looked at several centers. A coworker of mine suggested we look into KinderCare. Her children attended a KinderCare center in a different part of town but she just couldn't stop talking about how awesome it was for her children. She said her children would get upset when she arrived to pick them up--they just wanted to stay and learn and play.
From the moment we entered the building, the staff made us feel at home. They remembered me calling and inquiring about the center and welcomed my children and me with open arms and hearts. I have a child in the School Age program and also an Infant. The School Age program has been fantastic! The time spent planning centers/activities for the kids, as well as the designated time to help with homework in the afternoons, is so appreciated by my son and I! Being a working mom, having his homework done in the afternoons is such a stress reliever! And my friend was right, there are many days my son doesn't want to leave because he is having so much fun!
The Infant room is more than you can imagine--they truly love and care for my baby as if she were their own. Thank you for individualizing things for her according to our home schedule. They truly make it individual care for each baby. It makes the transition so much easier for her and eases my mind as I leave them to go to work. The open communication is fantastic. They can always tell me about my daughter’s day and her development as they explore knew things. It always amazes me how so many of the teachers know me even though they have never had either child in their class. It really is like one big family and I love that!
Thank you for loving my babies when I can't be there to love on them. I am a stressed mom so it is nice knowing when I leave my children in the morning, there is no doubt that they will be well cared for during the day.
We are always met in the morning with smiling, loving faces. It is so refreshing to leave your most prized possessions with people you feel like are your family. Thank you to an amazing staff!
