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.

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

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.

Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • There are many times that we (people) easily report/complain when we have a bad experience with something, but little do we acknowledge people or experiences that are positive.
    I am blessed to be a parent of three "angelic" children. (Right)... I have had some challenges this year, and a place where your children attend is one of the worries of a parent that can add to the stress if it is not up to par. The people in this location by far, from all the other daycare centers we have been to, are above standards. They are a loving, caring bunch here. The director, Polly Hull, has been FABULOUS! My children LOVE her. She goes out of her way to remind families about due dates (which is wonderful since life is challenging for some of us and we sometimes forget and get overwhelmed). She is always friendly with a bright smile on her face and is extremely polite about paperwork that needs to be complete. She makes phone calls if your child has a potty accident to alert you in case you have plans after child pick up. She works with various children in all the classrooms when a child is having a "bad" day. She has a lot of energy (more than most) and is always on the move working (unlike some directors we have encountered in the past, who stay in their office). She never makes you feel belittled if you have a difficult time. We moved and I still drive a distance to bring my children to this center. Please don't ever shut down! Parents need this kind of peace of mind. We simply love her and this particular center!
    Thank you all at Stygler Road KinderCare!

  • I love coming to KinderCare on Stygler! From the moment I took the tour and walked in, I automatically felt comfortable and knew this was where I wanted my daughter to attend.  Every morning when we get to school she is greeted and made to feel welcome.  My daughter has a wonderful relationship with her teachers.  They always let me know of her.  The director lets me know of things ahead of time and always acknowledges me by name.  My daughter is engaged in activities of singing, dancing and artwork.  She is only an infant and had done more things in her life span here at KinderCare.  We love her school! They are not here just for a check, they truly care about my daughter.  They make me feel safe and welcome by most importantly loved.
