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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

Our loving and devoted professionals at KinderCare are passionate about teaching and caring for young children. As a nationally accredited child development program, our teachers exceed state minimum standards for education level and ongoing professional development. Their lifelong love of learning is evident in their desire to stay abreast of new research and teaching techniques. Families meet with teachers three times per year to review their child’s progress, which is documented in our developmentally appropriate assessments, portfolios and anecdotal notes about daily achievements. We feel privileged to work alongside families to form supportive and cooperative partnerships.

  • Ms. Nasrin

    Ms. Nasrin, School-age

    My favorite quote is "To learn to succeed you must first learn to fail".

    My goal is to provide a positive environment where language and literacy development will flourish. I believe when children feel secure in their environment, they are more likely to engage in frequent, age-appropriate conversations that build vocabulary and social skills. I work with children individually, in small groups, and the whole group at different times during the day. I will display your child's original artwork, their own writing with invented spelling, and stories dictated by children during our afternoon group time. You will also find your child’s work in his / her portfolio and take-home folder. I use lacing cards, stencils, and writing activities to enhance fine-motor skills; strengthen coordination and gross-motor skills through running, jumping, and throwing activities, offer healthful food choices for snacks and meals, and encourage learning about the ways our bodies respond to the exercise and nutrition we take in.

I provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where your infant can explore and make new discoveries. I appreciate you trusting us with your infant's care and education, and I’m committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child.

    I love that I am a role model for young children.

    My goal is to create a safe, nurturing “home away from home” where children can learn to express themselves and understand their own unique identities.  I fill each day with fun activities that balance playtime, nurturing, and learning.  Communication is important to me, so you’ll receive regular teacher-family communication, including daily updates, monthly newsletters, and scheduled parent / teacher conferences.  I look forward to getting to know you and your family.

  • Ms. Pari

    Ms. Pari, Discovery Preschool Classroom

    I am inspired to watch the children grow and develop each day.

    My goal is to create a literacy-rich environment where children enhance their vocabulary through imitation and repetition of words and sentences. We build alphabet recognition through play with letters and writing centers and strengthen conversation skills with group sharing and reading experiences. We support cooperative play; use whole- and small-group activities to model sharing, communication, and cooperation; and demonstrate how to recognize others' feelings and respond appropriately. We support pretend play and role-playing with props and costumes; encourage creative expression through age-appropriate art materials; and stimulate imagination through storytelling and block-building.

  • Ms. Jo

    Ms. Jo, Discovery Preschool Classroom, Kitchen Manager

    It inspires me to be able to give the children the nutrition the need each day to grow.

    My goal is to increase your child’s language skills and help your child experience a sense of community in our classroom.  I will coach your child to develop new physical abilities and express individuality through imaginative play, music, dancing, and outdoor fun.  I will provide opportunities to practice sorting, matching and categorizing; and use blocks and math cards to teach counting, number identification, and patterning. There will be opportunities for age-appropriate problem resolution and of course, making new friends. We strengthen large-motor skills with riding equipment, balls, and movement activities; improve fine-motor and eye-hand coordination through pouring, stringing, and cutting activities; develop coordination using beanbags, hula hoops, and balance beams; and help children learn to serve themselves at meal times.

Health and Safety

Our top priority at KinderCare is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children, families, and staff.  We do this through rigorous training and constant assessment and evaluation of proper policies and procedures.  You child’s security begins at the front door, literally.  We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter.  All side doors are kept locked to ensure the security of the exterior of the building. All guests are emergency pick up people are identified and escorted through the building. Of course, our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting.  We are trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected.  Throughout the day, your child will be supervised at all times. No child is ever left unattended, even for a minute. Teachers have all been trained in supervision, discipline and guidance, and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure they understand the risks associated with the children in their care.  If your child has food allergies or specific medical conditions, we will work with you to ensure your child’s wellbeing while in our care.  We also take the responsibility of your child’s emotional security very seriously. We want every child to feel safe, loved, and respected while at KinderCare.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

The childcare providers at Kingsland Kindercare in Katy, TX are amazing!! We have two children who attend the daycare – both of whom have been in the center since the Infant room. The staff at the center are always professional and courteous, and they all seem to truly care about the children. The staff help the children to enjoy the classroom, giving them not only the attention they need to succeed, but also the structure of relevant discipline, when necessary – working closely with the parents to provide a consistent and united front, which is especially important for children who love to test boundaries (something at which my son is a pro!). We love that all staff members at the center are able to meet the children at their level, recognizing the varying personalities, abilities, and challenges and working with them to achieve success in the classrooms. They also take the time to dialogue with each parent who so desires each and every day. My children look forward to their “school” days at Kingsland Kindercare, and knowing that they are being so well cared for and are learning so much during the day makes leaving them at the center and going to work a lot easier. We would recommend Kingsland Kindercare to anyone!

- Parents

KinderCare became a part of our family four years ago when recommended by a friend of the family. Our oldest daughter was 2 years old at the time and four years later, I am happy to say that she started kindergarten this year and has tested high and above average in many areas of learning and I contribute a lot of that to the loving, caring and enthusiastic way they teach their children. Our youngest who is now four also started at Kinder Care when she was 2 years old and she has flourished in every aspect from learning to making friends and social skills. Both of our girls love the staff at their KinderCare and look genuinely forward to going. I cannot tell you how comforting it is to be able to leave your children at a preschool and have the security of knowing that they will be well taken care of. Although there are centers closer to our home, I have insisted that the girls stay where they are, a place they feel secure and so do I!
