Our center is accredited by NAEYC.


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.


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


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.

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.

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.

Our Families

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

  • I am writing you to sing the praise of Ms. Geeta and Ms. Zeeynup (Prekindergarten teachers). We have seen our child's reading and writing skills grow exponentially since she began the school year. Our child loves playing with her classmates, drawing, and painting; but most of all, she loves her two teachers. They are attentive, caring, and loving to Isabella as well as the other students. Ms. Geeta and Ms. Zeynup are doing a wonderful job of preparing our child for success.
    I wanted to thank you and your program for helping us prepare our child for academic as well as social success. We will be forever grateful to Ms. Geeta and Ms. Zeeynup.

  • I wish to thank you and commend your entire staff for the fabulous job that they do everyday taking care of the babies, teaching them and nurturing them. It has been only a month since Aaron started coming to KinderCare and I see how much he has changed; he comes home and sings the songs that was taught during the day and says his ABCs or the physical exercise his teacher taught him. I love the fact that you capture pictures of what Aaron does during the day--I simply love that idea! Sometime last week I asked Aaron who his favorite teacher is and he said Ms. Carla. I know Ms. Yan and Ms. Nakia do a great job as well and he loves them. I also know that he is a big fan of Ms. Nakia! Once again thank you SO much for all the efforts and dedication. I would recommend KinderCare to anyone I know who is looking for a reliable daycare.

    Priya - KinderCare Parent
  • It is hard to believe that our daughter has been part of the KinderCare family for five wonderful years. It has been five wonderful years of caring, laughing, sharing, learning, and nurturing. Our daughter calls Ms. Maryam, Ms. Diane and Ms. Mary her KinderCare moms which is a testament that she adores you all. It has been a pleasure to have such dedicated professionals helping to ensure my daughter is ready for all of life's essential fundamentals.

    Chrissy - KinderCare Parent
  • We are grateful for the great care of our daughter since she has been a toddler. Her teachers Ms. Sara, Ms. Sadri, Ms. Mary, Ms. Tiffany, Ms. Yan, Ms. Carla, Ms. Nakia and Ms. Nicole were wonderful. We also have to thank Ms. Elaina and Ms. Daisy for accommodating all of the needs for our daughter at your center. Thanks also to Ms. Diane for the math and phonics classes these are to be remembered.

    Pradeep - KinderCare Parent
  • We wanted to express our appreciation to our children's teachers. Ms. Mary, Ms. Tiffany, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Geeta, Ms. Prachi and Ms. Nadine are all doing a great job. We are delighted to have them as the educators of our kids. We are looking forward to another great year in your center.
