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.

Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)

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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program


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.


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.

    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.

    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

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.

Over the past five years, we have had two children in the KinderCare Torrey Pines Center. When selecting a daycare provider for our children, we were very aware that we weren't just choosing a place where our children would be safe, but that we were choosing people who would help us nurture and shape our children into the people they are going to become. Our oldest son is now in a very academically challenging kindergarten at a local charter school and having a very positive and successful year. We know this is in part because of the social and academic preparation he received at KinderCare. Our two year old is thriving under the care of the amazing staff. It is abundantly clear, just from walking through the school, that the children are the priority. We feel confident in the foundation our children are receiving at KinderCare, and highly recommend this KinderCare center to anyone and everyone we talk to about childcare. Thank you!

- Mother

My wife and I enrolled our grandson in KinderCare September 2011. This was the second child care facility he attended. The first facility was adequate and safe, but I felt they had own agenda and the best interest of my grandson was secondary. After his first semester, we did what we should have done originally, we visited and spent time at six child care facilities. I have been an educator for the last 35 years teaching grades 1-8 as well as a principal in charge of a very large middle school. I feel very qualified to evaluate educational facilities. Having guardianship of my grandson, I was very concerned with not only academic preparation, but the all-important social development, since his interaction with peers is almost nonexistent at home. The minute I set foot in KinderCare, my gut gave me a "good" feeling. I had one more facility to visit and immediately came back and reserved a spot for him at KinderCare.
Our grandson, a reserved and somewhat shy four-and-a-half year old, was instantly made to feel comfortable. He honestly came home the first day telling us he wanted "to go back tomorrow." That was the first indication that the right decision was made. After three weeks, he was talking about the kids he was playing with and the things they were doing in class. KinderCare seemed to ignite the "spark" of excitement for school. My grandson started Kindergarten in the public school in September and he has already mastered the standards for Kindergarten for the entire year. The success our grandson is experiencing in Kindergarten already (after only a few weeks) is due, in very large part, to KinderCare's director Ms. Carol. As with any educational facility it is only as effective as its educational leader. Ms. Carol makes it her duty to keep current with state and national standards. She is diligent in making sure her program mirrors the rigorous demands as expected from the Department of Education. She goes about placing the most qualified available teachers on her faculty. Her involvement in the classroom does NOT stop there. She is a very hands-on director. It is great to see her "get her hands dirty" along with the teachers and students. Everyone at KinderCare welcomes and encourages parents to be involved. Ms. Carol and her staff communicate what is being done in the classroom so parents can be on the same page and provide the best reinforcement for their students.
About three months after starting KinderCare, there was a family miscommunication and our grandson was not picked up for an hour after his usual time. Ms. Carol called and was truly more upset that something may have happened to us rather than being late to pick up our grandson. As our grandson began his second semester, Ms. Carol talked with us about having him start a Phonics program. Through their observations and assessments, and our input, it was determined to have our grandson start about the mid-semester. Our grandson flourished. The proof is already being demonstrated these first two weeks of Kindergarten. Again, this illustrates the "best interests of the child" are KinderCare's top priority.
It was difficult to leave KinderCare. We were made to feel and treated as family. Although saddened to leave, we embark on new educational frontiers confident our grandson has the very best foundation established. I'm sure there are other child care facilities available that could provide as good a level of care as KinderCare, but I am convinced no other facility could top the level of a care provided by Carol Dominguez and her facility.
