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.

Transitional Kindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)

A program for children who missed the kindergarten cutoff date. If your child completed or mastered prekindergarten but did not meet the cutoff date for kindergarten, this is the right choice for you. Enhanced whole-group activities and project-related learning activities help engage children in key competency areas such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

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.

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.

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!

  • I have a seven-month-old son and an 18-month-old daughter, both of whom have attended since they were seven weeks old. I am extremely grateful for the communication that the center has with my wife and I about the care, needs, and education of our children. I love the daily notes as well as pictures throughout the week on what the children have done. We feel blessed our children are at a place were we feel valued as a family and can see the genuine care and love for our children.

    Michael R. - KinderCare Parent
  • I have two boys who attend KinderCare and they absolutely love it. They are excited to go each and every morning. The teachers are fantastic and the Directors are very involved in more ways than one, and always stay on top of everything. Everyone there is always friendly and always has a smile on their faces. My boys have developed and learned so much at an incredible rate since attending KinderCare. As a parent, I couldn’t ask for much more out of a preschool. As for my children, I don’t think they could either. We all love it and I would highly recommend them to anyone in search of a preschool.

    Jeff C. - KinderCare Parent
  • My five-year-old son has been attending this center since he was 13 weeks old. It has been a great experience for my son as a student and for me as a parent. The associates are kind, knowledgeable, and friendly. Although there are many wonderful things to say about Prairie View KinderCare, what I appreciate the most is that the staff truly cares about my son and his future. I feel he has gotten a great start here at KinderCare from the caring staff, the fun educational environment, the individual attention they give each student, and the all-important communication between parents and teachers. Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do!

    Katie - KinderCare Parent
  • My twins have been attending KinderCare for just over a year. The staff is very responsive to any need for change and you can just feel the positive vibes coming off everyone there. The staff seem to love their jobs and our kids. My daughter has extra needs and the staff has gone above expectations to meet her needs and help her achieve goals, and there's an overall overwhelming sense that they want our kids there. I would absolutely recommend it to another family. 

    Shawnee T. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our son first joined Prairie View KinderCare during March 2012 when he was one and a half years old. We had spent the previous month or so touring different facilities, meeting with Center Directors, etc. in an attempt to find a good fit for our son while we were at work. Upon walking into KinderCare, we were immediately impressed with the cleanliness of the center, the numerous labeled (& organized) 'stations,' as well as all of the artwork and photos hanging on the walls. However, the main deciding factor was the teachers. All of our son's teachers have made him feel special and unique each and every day they spend with him. He is given the adequate attention he needs, yet the space to interact with his fellow classmates/friends. As he has advanced through the different classrooms (he is now in the Discovery Preschool class), we have continued to be impressed with the activities, topics discussed, and in turn, the direct increase in his knowledge of day-to-day life lessons. The best part is picking him up and seeing how excited he is to show off the different artwork activities he has done during the day. This class has continued to challenge him while still offering a stable, safe, and daily routine he needs to build his confidence. Whether it has been helping us to teach him how to use his words, wean him off of his pacifier, learning how to use the big boy potty, or how to interact in a social environment, KinderCare has been a huge help and asset in the development of our child's learning. Thank you!
