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

February's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Feelings + The Farm

This month, infants and toddlers will explore a very important aspect of human development: feelings. Babies are just beginning to develop a sense of who they are in relation to others, while toddlers are learning how to interact with those around them. Feelings are integral to human interaction, so activities will focus on identifying emotions (like happy, sad, and mad). We’ll read books, paint a mural, sing songs, and play games related to emotions and how we express them. 

The children in Discovery Preschool will take their learning to the farm! Farms are filled with so many science- and social science-based learning opportunities that children love. They’ll learn all about barns and farming equipment, which animals are raised on a farm, and which crops are grown there, too.

Children 4–5 years old: Occupations and Dinosaurs

The older children in Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten will spend time on two very popular themes: occupations and (roar!) dinosaurs. We’ll focus on learning about jobs that help people, like doctors, and those that inspire, like artists and musicians. As children learn about these occupations, they’ll play dress up, invent things, create charts and graphs, and learn the Spanish words for different jobs. The dinosaur unit gives them a chance to learn more about these fascinating giant creatures, learn about fossils, explore volcanoes, and do math puzzles with pretend dino eggs!

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.

Teachers & Staff

The loving and devoted professionals at Kingwood KinderCare are passionate about teaching and caring for young children. Our program is nationally accredited, which means we have ensured that 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.

Children in her classroom communicate with others verbally and non-verbally to engage with the world around them and with their peers. Children make new friends and gain the confidence, self-esteem, and negotiating skills necessary for a lifetime of healthy relationships. Ms. Gloria works to ensure that children gain the comfort and confidence to forge trusting relationships, value their individuality, and have fun just being themselves!

  • Ms. Edna

    Ms. Edna, Preschool Classroom

    Ms. Edna's goal is to provide a positive environment where language and literacy development will flourish. She believes that when children feel secure in their environment, they are more likely to engage in frequent, age-appropriate conversations that build vocabulary and social skills. Ms. Edna works with children individually, in small groups, and as a whole group at different times during the day. She displays children's original artwork, their own writing with invented spelling, and stories dictated by children during their afternoon group time in order to build a sense of pride and ownership in the children. She also places children’s work in their portfolios and take-home folders for parents to see examples of what children are learning. Ms. Edna uses lacing cards, stencils, and writing activities to enhance fine-motor skills; strengthens coordination and gross-motor skills through running, jumping, and throwing activities; offers healthful food choices for snacks and meals; and encourages learning about the ways our bodies respond to exercise and nutrition.

    Previous Experience:
    Ms. Edna has previously worked in the early childhood education field in Singapore and Hong Kong.

  • Ms. Camilla

    Ms. Camilla, Prekindergarten Classroom

    Ms. Camilla's goal is to provide children with consistent routines and unlimited learning opportunities, and provide families with the security of knowing their child is in a safe and nurturing environment. Her curriculum helps build brain power by supporting the development of judgment, perception, memory, reasoning, critical thinking, and language through a series of age-appropriate cognitive activities. Reading, writing, and math are important, but children also learn by experiencing the world around them--so Ms. Camilla provides plenty of opportunity for both academic study as well as independent play and exploration. She provides regular teacher-family communication, including ways to connect the children's learning at home, so that families can stay informed and involved. Ms. Camilla maintains an ongoing assessment and portfolio on each child and meets with families throughout the year to set learning goals and celebrate successes.

Health and Safety

Our top priority at Kingwood 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. Your child’s security begins at the front door--literally. We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter, with all side doors locked to ensure the security of the building. All guests or those authorized for emergency pick-ups must provide photo identification before being escorted through the building. Our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting, and have all been trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected. 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 well-being 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.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

I have two children who currently attend the KinderCare in Kingwood. All the staff members here are amazing! My two children are in the School Age Classroom, but every teacher knows my children by their first name and are so great with them. They are always so welcoming, and my children love going here.

- Mother

I have an 18-month-old son who attends the Kingwood KinderCare. He recently began transitioning over to the two-year-old room, and let me just say he is learning so much! To be honest, I am shocked at how much he has learned from the short time he has been in Ms. Paula and Ms. Angellica's class. He already recognizes all of his classmates and has learned the daily routines of the classroom. He truly enjoys coming to school every day and dropping him off happy, as well as picking him up happy, truly warms my heart. I am so thankful that my son has the opportunity to attend Kingwood KinderCare, where he not only learns, but is also loved.

- Mother

I've been a KinderCare parent for almost five years and have loved every minute. I have three kids currently enrolled (one in Prekindergarten and two in the Discovery Preschool Classroom). All the teachers, from Infant to School Age, and the Director and Assistant Director interact with my kids daily and know and love each of them. I know that my kids are getting the best attention and love each and every day. We love the KinderCare family and are extremely thankful to be a part of it!
