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.

    1. January's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Light and Dark, plus the Sky and Weather

      Through shadow play, experiments with flashlights, observing the Sun and more, infants and toddlers will enjoy learning about light and dark this month. Infants continue sensory development by looking at contrasting patterns and at objects that are clearly defined by sharp edges and bright colors, while toddlers will build on their understanding of the light and dark concepts with play around daytime and nighttime. The older Discovery Preschool children will turn their attention to the sky as they learn about weather, the Moon, the Sun, and stars.

      Children 4–5 years old: Transportation, Healthy Bodies, and Winter

      For children in the Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms, January is filled with variety! They’ll begin by learning about transportation and studying how things get from “here” to “there.” A few weeks later, the focus will shift to health and bodies, with an emphasis placed on how to make good choices for a growing body. Towards the end of the month, children will be introduced to the transformative nature of the winter season and learn how to dress and take care of themselves when it’s cold outside.

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 threes 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.

    Tell me and I forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn. -Benjamin Franklin

    My goal is to encourage your child to express individuality through artistic exploration and creativity.  I will help your infant learn to engage with others.  I will talk with your child; communicate verbally and through non-verbal gestures; tell stories and sing songs to model conversational skills; and use picture books to build association between sounds, objects, and words.  I will also help your infant improve mobility and coordination.  I will support your baby as he or she rolls from side-to-side and learns to crawl, stand, and walk; support the development of motor skills with blocks and shape boards; and meet your child's individual needs for rest and nutrition.

    The more that you read the more things you will know.  The more that you learn the more places you'll go."  -Dr. Seuss

    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.

    Why fit in when you were born to stand out?" -Dr. Seuss

    While there's no one-size-fits-all method for teaching a child to use the potty, I help families navigate this development milestone every day in our classroom.  Your child will communicate with others verbally and non-verbally to engage the world around them.  Your child will make new friends and gain the confidence, self-esteem, and negotiating skills necessary for a lifetime of healthy relationships.  Your child will gain the comfort and confidence to forge trusting relationships, value their individuality, and have fun just being him or herself.

    ~~-"Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning." -unknown

    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.

    A good teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart.

    My goal is to provide your child with consistent routines and unlimited learning opportunities, and provide you with the security of knowing your child is in a safe and nurturing environment.  My 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 and children learn by experiencing the world around them.  I provide regular teacher-family communication, including ways to connect your child's learning at home, so that you stay informed and involved.  I maintain an ongoing assessment and portfolio on your child and we'll meet throughout the year during conference time to set learning goals and celebrate successes.

    Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela

    My goal is to create a sense of community and leadership within my classroom.  I use a Classroom Council to select activities and themes that the whole group will enjoy.  I create a comfortable environment deigned to boost your child's confidence, self-esteem, character, and social skills.  I provide experiences that develop your child's ability to problem-solve, observe, predict, and explore cause-and-effect relationships; provide opportunities to explore math relationships such as classification; and provide support and time to complete homework and school projects.

    1. December's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Family, Friends, and Things that Go!

      Infants and toddlers will be exploring family and friends, while three-year-olds will focus on things that go vroom! Social and emotional development is foundational to growth and development in babies, so this month, infants and toddlers will participate in activities that reinforce their connection to family while also exploring connections that exist outside their home, such as friends. Meanwhile, their older friends in Discovery Preschool will learn about and play around with things that move (like bicycles, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes), which are all very exciting for little ones as they continue to explore the world outside their homes. 

      Children 4–5 years old: My Country + Tools and Machines

      The four- and five-year-olds continue exploring the world around them by learning about the state and country they live in! They’ll sings songs, play games based on travel, and learn about flags, state foods, and more. Children will also be introduced to cardinal directions (east, west, north, and south) and gain an appreciation for travel and meeting new friends from different places. 

      Children are naturally fascinated with machines and how things work and are put together. So to encourage that fascination, during the second half of this month children will learn about and play around with tools and machines. In addition to building literacy skills by using the names of machines and tools, children will develop math skills by graphing information, counting wheels, and more.

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 or 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 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 that currently attend The KinderCare in Kingwood. All the staff members here are amazing!! My two children are in the School Age room but every teacher knows my children by their first name and are so great with them. They are always so welcoming. My children love going there.

- Mother

I have an eighteen-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 was 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 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 Infants to School Age, plus 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 get to be part of it!
