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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

The teachers at our center will welcome your child into their class with open arms and a smile. They are long term staff and have really transformed their individual classrooms into a child's learning paradise.

  • Megan Cash, Center Director

    I want to ensure that each family, as well as their children, feel completely comfortable being a part of our center's family, as well as providing the teachers and staff with the right tools to educate and nurture the children effectively. -Megan

    Megan Cash is very excited to join the Alvarado KinderCare family as the Center Director. She previously worked at the Evergreen KinderCare as the Assistant Director, and at the Foxworthy KinderCare in San Jose as a teacher for over five years. She is also a proud mother of her three-year-old daughter Madison, and fifteen-year-old son Gavin. Megan feels that the most important part of working with children is building trust and making a strong connection with each child and their family. Once that bond has been created, learning and developmental growth comes naturally.

As a parent we want the best for our kids and KinderCare is simply the best!
My three-year-old daughter and I absolutely LOVE this center! I have been bringing her here for two years now, and our experience has been nothing but WONDERFUL! The entire staff is friendly and they ALWAYS smile and greet my daughter and I at drop-off and pick-up. The directors Ms. Sandy and Ms. Anna are very professional and work very hard at keeping this center run well and staffed with the best caretakers.
STELLAR STAFF! They are loving and well trained.
THRIVING ENVIRONMENT! You will see displays of artwork/pictures from your children in their classroom and on cubbys there are learning tools all around!
DIVERSITY! Your child will fit right in and add to the beautiful mix of culture and age groups here!
SNACKS! Healthy, delicious snacks and lunch served DAILY for your kids. No kidding, I've walked in on lunch a few times and I wished I could buy a plate!

- Mother

My son started going to this center when he was almost two-years-old. He had some developmental delays and was not eating well. The staff really helped him catch up and now he is doing very well. My son just loves his "school" and all his teachers, and so do we.

- Mother

I have been taking my son to KinderCare since he was four-months-old. I have seen tremendous development for the past two years. The staff is very friendly and they provide my son the same nurturing environment that I want for him since I cannot be a stay-at-home mom. They care for the kids that go there and if any situation may arise they are very prompt on calling the parents. Keep up the great job! You may have another one of my kids soon there.

- Mother

We have used this daycare since our son was six-months-old. The Infant and Toddler care providers are very caring and capable. I like that they have structured times with different activities and they keep my son on a consistent nap schedule.
