AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited–nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.

SCHOOL-READY

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.

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.

Monthly Activities

May's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Colors and Shapes

Spring fills nature with vibrant colors and interesting shapes, making this the perfect month for the infants, toddlers, and children in Discovery Preschool to explore these concepts. Infants will have a blast as they smash paint in plastic bags and explore blocks with different shapes, while toddlers will practice identifying and sorting different shapes and colors before making their own color-and-shape books! Meanwhile, the children in Discovery Preschool will create rainbow artwork and continue to practice sorting, counting, and matching shapes and colors.

Children 4–5 years old: Insects and Spiders + Water

Some children might find insects and spiders a bit frightening, but this month they’ll discover how cool these tiny critters really are. Children will find out how insects create food for plants, how bees makes honey, why spiders spin webs, and more. After that, children will dive into the world of water! Preschoolers will learn about how water can take three forms (solid, liquid, and gas), children in Pre-K will learn about the importance of keeping water clean and explore the different ways people use water, and our kindergarteners will learn about different water sources and why water conservation is so important. 

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

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.

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.

Spanish

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.

Teachers & Staff

The staff here at Leesburg KinderCare are dedicated to teaching the children in a fun, loving atmosphere. The longevity of the staff here makes it a place that is comfortable and welcoming.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

My daughter has been at Leesburg KinderCare since 2006, basically her entire childhood. Throughout these years our life has had so many changes, from her being diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of five, to recently being diagnosed with an intellectual disability. The entire staff at Leesburg KinderCare, without exception, has always been supportive and extremely patient at all times. There's is not one specific moment where they have made a difference in our life because they do everyday. She thinks of KinderCare as her second home. Quite often we had to think about moving from Leesburg but we always hold back and changing daycare is one reason why we don't. Needless to say they are a very important part of our life.

- Mother

The care providers at KinderCare in Leesburg are great. My son always comes home singing a new song or telling me something new he's learned. My baby is always excited once he sees his teacher in the Infant room. That tells me he enjoys being there. As long as my children are safe and happy, then I'm a happy parent!

- Mother

My son has been attending the Leesburg KinderCare since he was a baby; He is now three. From the beginning the staff has always made me and my son feel safe and special. They continue to treat my son like family. He even tells people he lives there and works there. The staff is always accommodating to fit the needs of my child as he has grown and his habits and schedule changed. Thank you guys for all you do. Also, I love seeing all the pictures of the children in all the classrooms.

- Mother

I have had my son at this Kindercare since he was 6months old (now 19months), and it has been amazing! The staff is phenomenol! I feel so proud when people tell me how impressed they are with my son, and I am ever so grateful! We recently moved, and have another Kindercare facility that is much closer, but it is  worth the commute for this particular location. 
I would highly recommend this daycare. It has been the best decision I have made!

- Mom

My kids have been going to KinderCare in Leesburg for about 3 years, and I don't have nothing but good things say. The teachers have always been very understanding and patience as well very helpful. Since I known most of the staff now it put me at ease very time I go to work which what every parents wants. Thank you very much KinderCare

- Mom

We love KinderCare Leesburg! Both of our boys started attending there when we moved to Leesburg this past summer (they previously attended another KinderCare branch in Maryland). The teachers and directors could not be nicer or more caring. Our boys are always so happy when they come home in the afternoon. They do such fun, educational activities every day that have really helped with our sons' social skills and readiness for school. You can't beat the KinderCare curriculum! This center is recently NAEYC accredited, and they have continually made updates/improvements to the center since we started there.

- Mom

Both my children attend this program. The care the teachers give is above and beyond their call. You can feel the love from each and every teacher. They recently did a refresh on the entire center and it is beautiful. Everywhere you look there is evidence of learning from their fantastic curriculum. I would highly recommend bringing your children here. I am so glad I did. They have become family to us.

- Mom

Although, aesthetically, it is not the most pristine, that is incomparable to the quality of staff. So pleased with everything they have provided. I would highly recommend.
