AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
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.
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.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.
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.
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.
We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
Hello, my name is Angie V. and my children go to the KinderCare located in the Lewis Center area. I wanted to contact you about the director, Tricia Pisano, and the wonderful thing she did for our family. My children attend on a part time basis. My mom also watches them on the other days. Tricia has been so flexible with us with the schedule due to the fact that my mom has needed to care for my ill grandfather (Or when my kids are ill themselves). Whenever I have asked to switch days it has never been a problem. That has always been so helpful in itself. However, the reason I am emailing you is because last weekend my grandfather passed away. My mother was in no condition to care for my kids and needed to make arrangements for the funeral, etc. Therefore my husband and I were taking off work to watch the kids. When I emailed Tricia about another change in day she so generously offered that the center watch our kids during the funeral (Not a normal day for my kids to attend) and for the full day at no extra charge (Something I did not ask for, but she so graciously offered). We did take her up on the offer for the morning of the funeral. Additionally, we were also able to switch days that week to fit into our work schedules. I can’t tell you how much this helped out our family. It was a huge weight off of my shoulder to not have to find additional arrangements. I have since told family and friends about the generosity of your center to help us in our time of need, and to offer it free of charge. Everyone has been impressed. I was so thankful I felt the need to contact you and make you aware of this. Tricia, and the other teachers at the school have been wonderful to my children since they started in August. We have been very pleased with the care they are given. This was just another reason we are so glad we made the decision to place our children at KinderCare.
Thank you so much.
Angie V. - KinderCare Parent
My eleven-month-old son goes to the Lewis center KinderCare, and we absolutely love it. The Director and Assistant Director are doing an outstanding job, they are more like family to us. They are caring, and always meet our needs. As this is my first child, and he is sick a lot, I am very picky and concerned all the time, and KinderCare is able to accommodate everything I ask for. Our son loves his teacher, Ms. Nicole, she is wonderful. She keeps everything organized, communicates with us, and you can tell she loves her job, and she treats the children like they are her own. We love the painting projects she does with the kids. We just wanted everyone to know how satisfied we are with KinderCare. It is not a business to us, they are taking care of my son; I have never felt like the center has treated us like a business transaction. THEY ARE FAMILY TO US!
