Our teachers teach from the heart, and from the belief that a quality education comes from developing the whole child regardless of their age.

Social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development are all able to flourish.
Our teachers teach because they care, and this shows in everything that we do.

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.
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.
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.
Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.
Our center is closed Thanksgiving Day and the day after.
The teachers and staff here at East Lancaster KinderCare would like to welcome you to come in and tour our center to see all the learning activates we have going on. We are passionate about educating and the development of the young child.
I love being a teacher and being able to help the children express themselves, hear their opinions and watch them learn all the new things they are being taught.
I love knowing that I can help make a difference in each child's life, each and every day.
Ms. Celes has been working at KinderCare since June of 2012. She has been working and volunteering with children since she was in high school. She loves working with children to help them grow and knowing she is a big part of their lives puts a smile on her face. She truly enjoys going to work each day and looks forward to getting to know your child.
The excitement that I experience with all the learning that is accomplished in these early years is immeasurable.
Ms. Gloria has been at KinderCare for the past seven years. She is the Prekindergarten teacher and finds enormous joy in preparing her children for Kindergarten. Providing a stimulating class environment along with hands on learning is key to making learning fun. She believes that every child is unique and should be cherished. The journey of learning takes place the moment a child steps inside KinderCare, and Ms. Gloria always makes sure they achieve their fullest potential.
I believe that if you believe that you can do something, then you are already halfway there.
Ms. Carla has been our Lancaster East KinderCare since 2013. She enjoys working with children each and every day because she knows that she is making a difference in their lives. Ms. Carla has worked with young children for about four years, and it is her passion and what she has always wanted to do for a career. It is her belief that the children are our future, so we need to teach them all we can teach them.
Two times each year we dedicate a day for our staff's professional development to further their training and better equip them for the care of your child. The center will be closed on this day for training to occur. If you have questions or would like to request further details, please contact your local Center Director.
