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.

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.


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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program


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.


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.


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

Please use this as a window to get to know our teachers. Also, please feel free to come to the center and meet them personally.

April's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Growing Gardens

What better time to explore the beauty and science of flowers and gardens than the spring? Infants’ learning will focus on sensory experiences with different plants and flowers, while toddlers and three-year-olds have the opportunity to learn how to care for plants. We’ll plant seeds in soil, water the plants, observe bugs and discover how they help plants grow, and even plant a butterfly garden outside! We’ll build math skills by counting seeds, learn new vocabulary words related to flowers and plants, and as always, sing songs and read books involving gardens. 

Children 4–5 years old: In the Spring + Wild Animals

For children in the Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten Classrooms, April is about exploring all things spring and discovering wild animals! Preschoolers will look for signs of spring outdoors, make mud cakes and count the twigs placed in them, and paint still-life paintings of things related to spring. When our learning turns to wild animals, we’ll learn about the habitats and habits of creatures big and small while maintaining a focus on learning lowercase letters. 

The older children in Transitional Kindergarten will focus on project-related work and pick something to work on together. In years past, children have painted a mural, made spring parade floats, painted wild animal masks, and created a model of a wild animal’s habitat. Both of these units focus on expanding the children’s understanding of the natural world around them.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

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

~~First off, EVERYONE is WONDERFUL at KinderCare! We LOVE all of you! Myself, and Ryan have seen all of these Service Values demonstrated numerous times! Props to all of you!

Here are some personal remarks:

As we all know, Hadley is in LOVE & Obsessed with Miss Kyla. Kyla is always so kind and caring to her. She has made an important role for Hadley and always lets her be a helper (which Hadley adores). Furthermore, she is always communicating with Ryan and I about her daily interaction, needs, and much more. Kyla has gone above and beyond working and building a relationship with Hadley and us.

Often, I hear about Ms. Katie as well. She tells me that she loves to play with you outside and that you are fun. This shows me you care about her and give her the attention she thrives on.

Ms Reanna, even though just starting with Hadley, already has reached out to introduce herself, starting to build a relationship with our family. She seems excited and enthusiastic to be working with Hadley and the other kids in her room.

Beth & Kayla (Heather & Stephanie too) take wonderful care of Owen. I am extremely comfortable leaving him with them, and have been since week one. They always fill me in on his days and continue to provide me detailed information so we are on the same page. I am always welcomed when dropping off or picking up.

Tara and the other openers always help make Hadley's drop off a smooth transition. She is always welcomed in the room and they help Hadley on some days when she does not always want me to leave. They are quick to hold and comfort her, also making it easier on mom.

Erin & Tasha are always working and shifting to our family needs. They are great when adjusting our schedules to meet my working schedule - which means so much. Every day, weather walking in or out, I am welcomed. Kindercare is a happy and warm place because of the foundation you have provided.

Ok, I could go on and on. & there are some that I did not get to mention, but... YOU ARE ALL GREAT!

Once again, I am so glad this email came- thank you to all. Hadley LOVES coming to "school" every day and is always so excited to share her day with us. Owen too, is always so content and happy- he one day will be telling us about his day too. It's a great feeling knowing your kids are in great care.



- Parents

Welcoming a child into our lives was probably one of the scariest and most rewarding things we have ever done.  When the time came to go back to work, we couldn’t image leaving our daughter in the hands of another, but as parents it is something most of us probably face.  Initially we did not want to put our child in public daycare so we decided to have someone come to our home.  For us, that was surprisingly an unanticipated disaster!  We made a list of all the things that were important to us and began touring centers.  Each tour was more disappointing than the next until we toured KinderCare. 
It had all of the things we were looking for.  The most important things to us were safety and security, no prop-feeding bottles, a strong learning curriculum, low turnover in teachers, cleanliness and we did not want our child sitting a swing or bouncer all day. (We call that the BOP, Battery Operated Parent.)   Just from the short tour we knew we had found our place.  Not one bouncer or swing in sight. Children were being fed by a teacher, security checks were occurring throughout the visit and the teachers put us at ease.  So we decided to give it a go.   Fast forward to three years later and here we are, still members of the center and have just added a son.  Can you believe in three years time, we still see ALL the same faces every day when we walk in the door? 
What we didn’t realize was how KinderCare would integrate into our family.  They have done an amazing job of welcoming our kids each morning (let’s be honest, drop off doesn’t always go smoothly), painting the picture of what our children did all day on the daily sheet, providing development feedback and including our family in many events throughout the year.  Our favorite events are the book fair exchange, family Thanksgiving dinner and the chili cook-off.
Like most families these days our lives get a bit chaotic sometimes.  The KinderCare staff is always there to send a reminder email or take one of our many calls.  We never feel as though our children are just a number.  It is the most comforting feeling to know that while we are at work our children are safe, happy, learning and growing!

- Mom and Dad
We chose to enroll our first son at a KinderCare child care center because of the friendliness of the staff and families. When our first son was in the “baby” room, we soon found out we were pregnant with our second. The center warmly welcomed our new baby boy! We loved that the boys were able to interact with one another during the day but also were able to learn the skills necessary when dealing with their same-age peers. Their social, behavior and academic skills improved throughout the years because of the KinderCare staffs’ knowledge and care. We were highly impressed with the center and know that our children have a strong upbringing because of the KinderCare child care center.
- Mom and Dad

We have been a KinderCare family since 2010.  When we first were in need of daycare services my son was 6 months old.  He is now in the 4K program at KinderCare, and we could not be any more pleased with the care and education he has received over the last 4 years.  Our daughter now attends KinderCare as well.  We are amazed at how much she has grown in just 1 year.   We are so fortunate to have found a center that exceeds our expectations.  As parents, it is our hope that our kids be safe, happy and engaged in learning each day.  The KinderCare staff works very hard each and every day to make sure these 3 items are top of mind.  I know my children are safe at the center, they are happy to see their friends each day, and we can see their learning displayed on the walls of each classroom.  There is a special place in our hearts for the staff at KinderCare!
