Accreditation

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.

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

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.

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.

Spanish

Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Health and Safety

At KinderCare-Pebble your child’s health and safety are of the utmost importance. All of our staff is FBI Background checked prior to employment and is trained in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome; Recognizing Signs and Symptoms of Illness; Recognizing and Reporting Abuse and Neglect; Childhood Nutrition; and First Aid and CPR certification that is updated every two years. Due to the rise in Pertusis (Whooping Cough) in the State of Nevada all of our Infant and Toddler teachers as well as the management team have been immunized against this disease in order to protect our youngest students. We conduct monthly evacuation drills in case of an emergency as well as a disaster plan on file with State of Nevada Childcare Licensing. Our entrance has a security system and each family has their own unique pin for clocking their children in and out for the day. We also have a Health and Safety Coordinator on staff to ensure all safety policies are monitored daily and are held to the highest standards.

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.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Kindercare facility in the Corporate Circle parking lot that my three children attend. I have had my son, Spencer, there for almost four years now, my daughter, Haley, for two years and my newborn, Nathan, just started last month. From an administration standpoint, they run things well and organized. The process of signing up is easy and they communicated very well. They always make forms and payments easy. I always know about upcoming events and am kept very well informed through posters, emails, and handouts. The establishment is always clean and well cared for. Now on to some of the more important things for a daycare – the kids. I have always been happy with the teachers that have been in the rooms for the kids. In the infant room, they care for the babies, teach them new things and make sure they are safe, fed and clean. All three of my children have been in the infant room and my youngest still has two of the same teachers that were there when my oldest was in the room. Consistency like that is important for the kids and for peace of mind for the parent. They are very attentive to any requests for special needs you may have; for example, my daughter needs a special lotion and they are mindful about making sure she gets that and note it on her paper for me. The teachers communicate well and keep you informed on your child's progress. In the toddler rooms, I feel that they have a nice balance of fun and learning. Spencer and Haley have the time to play outside and do special art projects, but they also try to focus on themes and concepts for learning like letters, numbers, and reading. Spencer has really enjoyed the music program as well. Above all, I think what I like best is that the teachers seem to truly care about my children. If I can't be with my children during the day, it makes me very happy to have them at a place where they not only take care of my kids' needs, but they also get to know my children and show an interest in their well being. They get excited about new developments in their progression, they know my kids' personalities and they worry when they are sick as if the kids are their own. I have been extremely happy with them as a child care center for my kids.
