Welcome

Welcome to the Brandt Pike KinderCare! We create an environment that is safe, caring, and educational for our families.

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.

    Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.

    -Dr. Hiam Ginnot

    "A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can.

    Why compare one against the other? Each one if different, each one is special, each one is beautiful.

    Mindy attended Ashford University and received a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master's Degree in Business, and she is still attending Ashford to receive her second Master's Degree in Education. Mindy was a Preschool teacher for the past thirteen years and in Administration for four years. She is dedicated to her career in Early Childhood Education and looks forward to a great future with KinderCare Learning center and the families that are enrolled and enrolling soon.

  • Shelby, All

    Play is the highest form of research.  - Albert Einstein

    Shelby started working for KinderCare in February 2016 at a center in Cincinnati. I went to the University of Cincinnati to study Early Childhood Education. She is hopeful that one day she will become a Kindergarten Teacher. The best part of being a teacher for Shelby is watching a child learn something new, that  "AH-HA" moment. She love crafts and activities that involve messy materials! Shelby is a hands on teacher and loves to challenge the children to do what they did not think that they were able to do.

  • Brittany, Pre-K

    I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired. – Martha Graham  

    Ms. Brittany has an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. She has the ability to work with many different age groups. Brittany has spent her time educating the children that were is her class and making her priorities are keeping the children safe and getting them ready for the next step in their learning in their life. She loves to smile and laugh with the children and love to communicate with the parents about what their students are doing. She is mother of two and loves to spend time with family and friends and watching hockey and NASCAR.

    The power of words is that a life can be launched with as little as a single phrase, an uplifting word or an act of kindness. Think of the power we wield and the impact we can make if we become more intentional about encouraging our children. Our words are often the very things that help create future dreams. And sometimes those dreams are to be just like us.

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

My child is in the toddler program and Ms.Angela is amazing. No matter what time I drop my son off or pick him up she will stop what she is doing to hold him and make him feel safe. As a mother it is hard to leave knowing that your child is crying but Angela makes me feel that it is ok. She is an amazing teacher.

- Mother

My son has been coming to the Brandt Pike KinderCare for over three years. The teachers that play a big role in his learning are Ms. Nettie and Ms. Pearl. They have taken very good care of him even when he "has is days"! They listen to every concern I might have and address then promptly. The teachers that I haven't mentioned should also be noticed for their patience with every child in the center. I've had my kids in a few different centers but this one is truly the best. Thanks so much to all for their time and dedication.
