We are very proud of our curriculum implementation and the success our students have experienced when transitioning into Kindergarten. We have lots of windows and great visibility within the center . Our rooms are very BRIGHT and COLORFUL! We have caring, nurturing teachers that want to help your child through all of their stages of development. We are proud to be the only center in Hudson rated 5 out of 5 stars for Wisconsin's Early Childhood rating system, YoungStar.
Welcome to Hudson KinderCare! We serve Hudson, River Falls and the surrounding communities. We are excited to meet you! Our teaching staff believe in developing the whole child and working with families to help each child grow and learn to their fullest abilities. Hudson KinderCare is Hudson's first and only 5 star rated childcare provider with Wisconsin's new YoungStar rating system. We are proud to provide excellent education and customer service to our families. Your child will have a safe, secure environment to learn in with wonderful, caring teachers to learn from. We have a true passion for early childhood education and would love the opportunity to be a part of your child's life. I am so grateful to have opened this center in 2007 with my assistant director, Dani. Together with our wonderful staff, we have created a home away from home for your child where early childhood education is our focus.
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.
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.

I first of all want to thank you and all of your staff for being so amazing to my daughter. She LOVES coming to KinderCare each and every day. She has learned so many amazing things such as sign language, playing with other kids and being a little social butterfly. It is so comforting as a mother to drop my child off each day and see such a big smile on her face. I also need to give a little extra kudos for Ms. Gabe. What an amazing teacher who you never see without a giant smile on her face. I know she must have some crazy days with crabby babies but you would NEVER know it. My daughter literally will run into her arms when she gets to school and it melts my heart.
