Welcome to the La Verne KinderCare in La Verne. We are all so excited to meet you and your family. We believe that our programs will engage children in hands-on, active learning that nurtures creativity and develops independent thinking and problem-solving skills. Children find us a welcoming, engaging and a safe place to explore the world around them. Learning becomes fun and exciting, and the love of learning the child develops will carry them forward, enhancing later success in school. Here at La Verne KinderCare we believe the children, your children, are a gift beyond measure. I cannot begin to describe how wonderful it is to have been chosen of the love they so freely bestow. Watching them grow and learn gives us great pleasure and gratification. Each day spent with your children is honestly a gift. Everyday is different, we never know what exciting adventures await us, but come what may it is always a gift!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Antoinette:As you know, it is always a difficult decision to leave your children to be cared for by other people. KinderCare in La Verne has made the transition easy not only for my children, but for my husband and I as well! My daughter has been a student at KinderCare for over two years and we were very pleased to have my son begin this fall. When I drop them off in the morning they are greeted by their teachers and I can leave knowing that they will be safe, cared for, and loved. The staff plays such a large role in my children's lives, They are patient and kind when they are hurt or not feeling well and they enforce the same manners and rules that I expect at home.I am also impressed by the curriculum that is used at KinderCare. My daughter is able to easily recognize letters, numbers and even some words! We had concerns about my son's vocabulary prior to KinderCare, but I have seen his language develop so much in the last few weeks, They always come home telling me about their latest art project, their cooking class, or what they played with outside. You and the staff do such a nice job of really incorporating the current lesson into every aspect of their day - even with dress-up days! My husband especially enjoys getting pictures of the kids while they are working on a project. He doesn't get as many opportunities to drop off and pick up - so these pictures offer glimpses of their day and offer nice ways for the kids to describe what they were doing that particular day.On a personal note, I also want to thank you for the patience and kindness you and the staff have shown to me. Parenthood is not always easy! You and the staff are always available to talk about my kids progress and behavior; always willing to offer advice or just listen and remind me that I am not alone! It is for these and many other reasons that I send my children to KinderCare. Thank you for all that you do!
