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.

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

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.

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.

Our Families

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

  • Our daughter Nora, who is two-years-old, has been going to KinderCare since she was twelve-weeks-old. It is amazing to see how much she has come to love her teachers. She gets excited to see her friends every day and loves playing with them. Nora's teachers are very loving and welcoming. Besides being enrolled in the Music lessons, Nora does arts and crafts every day. She also reads books and has learned her ABC's and numbers. We are surprised every day about how much Nora learns. Thank you to a wonderful and caring staff!

  • The teachers and the Center Director with the Glen Ellyn Kindercare Center have been AMAZING. As a first time mom, the idea of leaving my daughter in someone else's care was a little nerve wracking in the beginning. My husband and I have been so thankful to have found such wonderful people to partner with in her care. I really want to emphasize the word partner- they work with us to help meet her needs and to meet our needs as parents.
    Even more importantly, our daughter seems to really love and enjoy all of her teachers and they seem to genuinely care about her too. We love how each stage in the center seems perfectly suited for where they need to be. Our daughter is a new member of the Toddler room and she LOVES it. It seems like the perfect environment for little ones on the move to learn, explore and have fun! We enjoy hearing from the teachers about the songs they sing, the books they read and seeing the pictures of her playing and creating. Not to mention we adore all those great little 'masterpieces' she comes home with!
    We feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful environment and such great people to help our daughter grow and develop. We're looking forward to another great year with the Glen Ellyn Kindercare!

  • Finding a place for your only child to spend the majority of her day is a BIG DECISION! After visiting several daycares in the area, we chose the Glen Ellyn Kindercare because of the clean and organized facilitiy, the programs and lessons they teach and most of all the TEACHERS and STAFF! She has learned so much - I am impressed daily by all her new skills. The staff does such an amazing job making me and my daughter feel comforatable and that is huge relief as a mom! I couldn't be happier with our Kindercare and every day my daughter is excited to go!

  •    After only the first week of my son attending Kindercare I knew I made an excellent decision for him and for me. The teachers at Kindercare are wonderful and treat my son, Luke, like he is their own child. Luke is always excited to start his day at Kindercare and has made a lot of new friends. He gets to build his social skills by playing with and communicating with the other children. Kindercare makes learning fun and has a lot of educational toys for the kids. I highly recommend Kindercare for anyone and everyone!
