AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

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

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.

Math

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.

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.

Our Teachers

We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • My husband and I have been very pleased with the learning and development that our daughter has achieved while being enrolled at KinderCare at Woodfield Crossing. She is also developing socialization skills that is proven with her engagement with the other children. I know that her teacher cares for her and is committed to her learning and care. This is demonstrated not only through interaction and activities and projects that she brings home and but also through our daily reports and regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

  • As a single mother, my daughter, Reya, is my entire world. I am a self-proclaimed “hover-mom” who puts her first at all costs. After only two days at her previous day care, I pulled her out immediately and had a bleak outlook on childcare in general. Being a teacher requires me to put in long hours at work so I realized that I would, inevitably, have to find another facility for my child. Reluctantly, I made appointments with ten daycares and planned to visit them all before making my decision. KinderCare at Woodfield Crossing was my first stop. The director, Shannon, greeted me with a warm smile and I immediately felt at ease. Within a few moments, I could sense the family-feel of the center and undeniable love for children. My daughter, Reya, instantly started playing and I could tell she was comfortable already. I knew that I would be canceling nine appointments. My mind was made up. Shannon and her staff have been phenomenal. Reya cries when she has to leave because she enjoys it so much. She has grown very attached to all of the staff members and loves all of the opportunities KinderCare has to offer. Whether it’s music class with Noel, learning to walk with Stephanie or having breakfast with Cambella, Reya is all smiles! I affectionately call Shannon Reya’s “school mommy” because their relationship is so close and loving. Candace and Reya have a special bond as well, always cracking each other up. Reya’s infant teacher, Stephanie, was patient and kind when Reya first arrived; there were always laughs and snuggles. Reya has now graduated into the “Tiny Tots” room with Amy and she is on cloud nine! Amy’s lessons are creative and innovative. She never hesitates to extend on the curriculum, even if it means researching or bringing items from home. Amy puts her heart and soul in everything she does. I cannot say enough positive words about the staff at Woodfield Crossing. I am not an easy person to impress, but… with tears rolling down my cheeks, I will say that I am not only impressed, I am in awe of these women. I can honestly say that they know my child, love her and have her best interest at heart. That means the world to me.

  • I'm excited about the care of my son at KinderCare. He's in a clean environment, with teachers that care and adore the children deeply. He's fed according to his schedule and very happy when I pick him up. The staff and children in the class are always happy and it's a pleasant feeling in the room. I wouldn’t dream of taking my son anywhere else other than the Woodfield Crossing KinderCare!

    Anthony H. - KinderCare Parent
  • My daughter has recently relocated to the Woodfield Crossing KinderCare location. The teachers have done such a great job helping us adapt to our new environment! They are welcoming and make every day an educational experience for her. We love working on the homework together that her teachers send home once a month!
