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

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.

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.

Monthly Activities

May's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Colors and Shapes

Spring fills nature with vibrant colors and interesting shapes, making this the perfect month for the infants, toddlers, and children in Discovery Preschool to explore these concepts. Infants will have a blast as they smash paint in plastic bags and explore blocks with different shapes, while toddlers will practice identifying and sorting different shapes and colors before making their own color-and-shape books! Meanwhile, the children in Discovery Preschool will create rainbow artwork and continue to practice sorting, counting, and matching shapes and colors.

Children 4–5 years old: Insects and Spiders + Water

Some children might find insects and spiders a bit frightening, but this month they’ll discover how cool these tiny critters really are. Children will find out how insects create food for plants, how bees makes honey, why spiders spin webs, and more. After that, children will dive into the world of water! Preschoolers will learn about how water can take three forms (solid, liquid, and gas), children in Pre-K will learn about the importance of keeping water clean and explore the different ways people use water, and our kindergarteners will learn about different water sources and why water conservation is so important. 

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.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

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 teachers have an outstanding dedication to the children and families that we serve. We are very proud to have teachers with over 20 years experience in the early childhood education field, as well as teachers who are new to the field. We provide a fun-filled environment that encourages children to explore the world around them. From infants to after school programs, our curriculums make school readiness a priority. Our caregivers offer superior child care services as they develop trusting bonds with the children and families; we believe that teaching young children involves a partnership with their families.

  • Mrs. Andrea Bush, Center Director

    "Being a part of children's growth and development is so rewarding. Building those lasting relationships with children and their families is immeasurable."

    Mrs. Andrea was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. She married her husband, Dean, who was in the U.S. Army at the time in 1992. They just celebrated 25 years of marriage. Together, Dean and Andrea have three children, Josh 23, Kylee 18 and Braeden 11. They also have three dogs, Harley (Yellow Lab), Alfie (Yorki-Poo) and Finnegan (Schichon). Their family is huge hockey fans and love to watch their Ottawa Senators play! Dean retired from the Army in 2011. 

    Andrea’s experience with children dates back to when she was merely 13 years old. She started with small babysitting jobs that eventually grew into her becoming a live-out nanny when she graduated from high school. A few short years after graduating from high school, Andrea and Dean met, they married and she moved to the U.S. In 2000, having struggles to find reliable care for her 6 year old and 1 year old, Andrea quit her job and started an in-home childcare business. Throughout the years, she continued to service military families by running a Family Child Care home on base even earning her Child Development Associate Credential. In 2005, Andrea finally decided what she wanted to do when she grew up. She wanted to continue to care for children and have a bigger influence on the growth and development of children. She registered for college and started her journey to getting her degree in Early Childhood Education. In May 2010, Andrea graduated from college with an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. In August 2010, she applied with KinderCare Learning Centers and was offered a position as a Center Director at the Bauer location. That’s where she remained until September 2016. Since then, she has been supporting Arlington KinderCare and in November of 2016, she began supporting the Kingstowne KinderCare. In February 2017, she was officially announced as the new Center Director at the Kingstowne location. 

    Andrea has a passion for helping children learn and grow. She enjoys watching them achieve their many milestones from infancy to school-age.

The best way to show her appreciation is to pay it forward and that’s what encouraged her to become an educator.

Currently she holds the position as the Learning Adventures teacher which is fun and challenging, she is also the health and safety person for our center and lastly she is newly appointed the third lead person. She is honored to hold so many positions within the company it allows her to see all aspects of the company through different perspectives. 

    Everyday there are new challenges but, it is her responsibility as a teacher and leader to provide the love, knowledge and positive guidance to the most precious gift in life, the children.

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Colors and Shapes

Spring fills nature with vibrant colors and interesting shapes, making this the perfect month for the infants, toddlers, and children in Discovery Preschool to explore these concepts. Infants will have a blast as they smash paint in plastic bags and explore blocks with different shapes, while toddlers will practice identifying and sorting different shapes and colors before making their own color-and-shape books! Meanwhile, the children in Discovery Preschool will create rainbow artwork and continue to practice sorting, counting, and matching shapes and colors.

Children 4–5 years old: Insects and Spiders + Water

Some children might find insects and spiders a bit frightening, but this month they’ll discover how cool these tiny critters really are. Children will find out how insects create food for plants, how bees makes honey, why spiders spin webs, and more. After that, children will dive into the world of water! Preschoolers will learn about how water can take three forms (solid, liquid, and gas), children in Pre-K will learn about the importance of keeping water clean and explore the different ways people use water, and our kindergarteners will learn about different water sources and why water conservation is so important.

My child has been at this center for four years and I couldn't be happier with the staff and teachers. Ms. Elizabeth, Ms. Vabha, Ms. Destinee and Ms. Tamika are the absolute best teachers I've ever seen. The preschool curriculum has prepared my child for Kindergarten, above all of my expectations. Ms. Tamika prepares individual homework assignments for each child, based on their current skills and focus areas...amazing! Above all, the teachers truly care about each child's physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development.
