Welcome to Highland KinderCare! We are excited to meet you and your child and show you the amazing things we have to offer here at our center! Our program offers a one of a kind, early literacy based curriculum that prepares your child for the upcoming years. We serve children from various areas that range from 6 weeks old to 12 years old. We transport to several local elementary schools and to the local middle school.
For the upcoming school year, we will be running our very own Transitional Kindergarten class as well as an in house Private Kindergarten. As always, we offer programs for Infants, Toddlers, Two Year Old and Three Year Old children, Prekindergarten, Kindergarten and School Age.
Call us soon to set up an appointment to see the center, meet the staff and experience our curriculum.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
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.
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 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.

We are writing to let you know how much we appreciate the excellent care our boys receive at the Highland KinderCare Learning Center. Initially, we looked at 15 different daycares facilities and in the end we felt the safest and most confident in choosing KinderCare. We originally enrolled our oldest son when he was six weeks old and has stayed on thru the age of five. The care he received from the teachers was remarkable. He has learned so much that now, as a soon to be 2nd grader, is reading well above his grade level. We were fortunate enough to have Ms. Arianna be his teacher three of those years. Her dedication and positive attitude were always apparent.In May 2012, we were blessed with another little boy. When thinking about daycare once again we knew in our hearts there was only one place we felt safe with taking our children to. As we walked in the doors again we felt at home seeing some of the familiar faces (Ms. Sherry, Ms. Arianna and Ms. Jeannine the Center director).Our baby has really thrived; he is excited to see his teachers and friends there. He gets TLC and when necessary redirected but always in a positive way. Ms. Julie is amazing with our young son, he smiles as soon as he sees her and we have peace of mind knowing that he is in such good hands. As parents we want the best for our children. If one of us could stay home and watch them ourselves we would but since it isn’t feasible at this time. We feel very strongly we have them exactly where they should be. Our experience at KinderCare has been very positive and we are very thankful to the entire staff there. They truly are a team from directors, teachers and assistants.
