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.

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 educators take pride in their classrooms and the curriculum they implement on a daily basis. They are here to work as partners with you to promote the best possible outcomes for your children.

I am so happy I chose KinderCare Learning Center in Lakeville.  The staff is amazing.  They make each child feel special.  They made it so easy for my son to transition.  They have a great curriculum.  My son learns something new each day and has made so many great relationships.

I enrolled my daughter into the KinderCare Lakeville, MA center in June of 2014.  My daughter was 3 and a half years old at the time and was being moved from another daycare center I was not happy with.  From my first interaction with the Center Director I felt welcome and that they were happy to have the opportunity to have my daughter become a student.  My daughter went in for a trial day and she LOVED it.
The center is a good size, very clean, beautiful location, and has a great little playground with plenty of things to do and space to run and play.  All the teachers work hard, are caring, loving, and educated people.  They really have pride in what they do and in their center.  My daughter has learned so much since being enrolled.  She looks forward to going to “school” everyday and she thinks of her teachers often when she is not at the center.  I really couldn’t be happier with my choice to have my daughter become part of the KinderCare Family!

My son has attended KinderCare for the past two years. Prior to coming to KinderCare, my son went to a privately owned daycare. I wasn’t impressed so I switched to KinderCare - let me say, since attending KinderCare my son has made tremendous improvement in all areas of learning. He used to be withdrawn and shy, and did not like going to school, now he cannot wait to go and see his teachers and friends. We recently had a small house fire and I couldn't believe the outpouring of support we received from his school... Parents and teachers were so caring and thoughtful. It's always stressful dropping your child off somewhere and to expect someone to watch and care for your loved one as you would, however, I feel totally confident in this school. They have treated my son in the most caring and considerate ways. You know the teachers care just by talking to them, and they make every child feel important. They have all kinds of learning activities and fun filled days for the kids. My son looks forward to the camp programs they have every summer. Every time I pick him up and he tells me about his day, I know I made the right choice with KinderCare. I would highly recommend this school.
