Our center offers convenient access off the highway, our infant program provides formula, jar food & cereal. The center's nutritional food program meets USDA requirements. The School Age class takes field trips in the summer to places like the Zoo, Children's Museum, Park & Library.
Our teachers and staff are passionate about developing the whole child and are committed to communicating with parents. Many of our teachers and staff are received or working to complete their degree in Early Childhood Education. Our team strives for excellence through continuing education from biannual company professional development trainings to seeking additional college courses or seminars in the education field. At the end of the day, the true key to our teachers' success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.
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.

Being a first time mother with no family that would be willing to watch my son I looked for a safe place where I can leave him and know that he would be taken care of. I have done in home daycare for a small time frame but the fact that I don't know who was coming or going out of the house left me worried. I knew that I wanted him to be in a secure building and with caregivers that are genuinely concerned about his development and not just prop him in-front of the TV. That is when I found KinderCare and I am grateful for all the girls that work here. My son who at that time was tree-months-old, loved the girls in the Infant room and they loved and cared for him as if he was their own.They did a structure change and increased the rate and I had to leave to another secure daycare that was affordable. Within one-and-a-half months at this new location I had nothing but problems and they had no communication with me or between the teachers. The rate increased and I was never informed of this until I received a letter saying that I was 100 dollars past due. The reason that I quickly contacted KinderCare to see if my son would be able to go back to them is due to the teachers feeding him a bottle that was not my son's (he's lactose intolerant) and the “teacher” was not reprimanded for her mistake. Instead all I got was a “we are sorry, this will never happen again”. The second major concern was when I got a letter from human services saying my son's lead level was high in such a short time and to have another doctor appointment and get tested within one to three months. I called human services and informed them that he just started a new daycare and will be removing him and making the appointment to get this cleared up. When I called and asked if any of the paint that is used is lead free the response that I was told is “I don’t know why”. I just hung up the phone with that answer.I called KinderCare and explained what was going on and they informed me that they would love to have my son back and they would wave the fee! I am so happy that I found KinderCare! All the girls that work in the Infant room are great! They give me daily sheets and explain how my son's day was and what he did as well. I enjoy knowing that we have constant communication and I am welcome to visit on my lunch or call in just to see how his day is going. The teachers in his room know all the kids names as well as the parents and make a big effort know about the families. They also do art projects with them and teach them to play independently, but also are happy to give some TLC when any child is not feeling good. Being a first time mom with no family close I would highly recommend KinderCare for any first time parent or any parent for that matter. You can never put a price on knowing that your child will be taken care of as if you are watching him your self.
