Welcome Meet the Team »

Our facility has an exclusive curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for all levels and makes learning fun. It provides consistency and structure to their environment to assist in all students’ success. In addition, our center provides small group educational programs in music, math, and phonics to enhance our students overall academic experience. In addition, once a month we provide a parents night out so our parents can have some time together to relax knowing their children are in a safe and familiar place. Our center has wonderful diversity among our families. We transport children to nine different elementary schools in three different school districts so our school age students have the opportunity to make friends from across the entire community. Families that are looking for childcare and tour our center will see a clean, safe, fun and structured atmosphere that invokes a feeling of family and sparks a love of lifelong learning.

We have been with KinderCare for about six years. We have had a wonderful experience. The classes are not too large so each student can get a little extra attention when needed. For us, that was usually at drop off time. The teachers do a great job of teaching the children in a way that is fun for the kids. My son loves to come home and tell me what he learned at school and show me all the art work that he did that day! It is a great feeling being able to drop off my son in the morning and know that he is in a safe, nurturing environment with all of his buddies having fun. - Phyllis G., Mother
