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.
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 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.
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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I would like to take a moment and display my appreciation for KinderCare. I am a first time mother at 50 years old, I was an absolute nervous wreck on putting my child in to a daycare back in January of 2010. I heard about KinderCare and went in for a tour. From that first moment in Jan 2010, I knew this is where my child would be going to every day till she starts Jefferson Co. Public School. Now it is 4 and a half years later, and my child has been progressed greatly by what KinderCare has to offer. She has learned English, math, spelling, days of the week, months of the year, and that is only a small description of what she is learning at KinderCare. She is ready for Kindergarden due to the great staff at KinderCare. I extremely regret having to leave KinderCare in 34 days. I surely hope the next 12 years with JCPS will have the same rewards on my daughter and myself that we have enjoyed with such a great Learning Center. Thank you to all my daughter’s teachers, you all do above and beyond teaching to our precious children. My daughter and I will never forget KinderCare.
Thank you so very much TEAM KINDERCARE J
Rebecca Taylor - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare has provided a sense of comfort for me while i am away from my son for 8 hours a day. The staff are so warm, sweet, and knowledgeable of my child. I love that he is learning and that everyone (teachers) know his name. They are able to share sweet, funny stories. I really love his second family here at KinderCare. I would not choose any other childcare. Thank you Zorn Ave. for all your love and care..my son is not ignored!
Akie Ellis - KinderCare Parent
Please know we have been extremely pleased with the level of care that Zorn Ave. KinderCare has provided for our daughter Piper. We researched many daycare facilities within the area and selected Zorn Ave. to enroll Piper because of the high-quality program we observed during our tour. Zorn also came highly recommended by friends. We have always felt very comfortable leaving Piper in their care knowing that she would be taken care of with love, patience, and respect. Thank you Zorn for taking excellent care of Piper.
Stephania Clark - KinderCare Parent
We have been at KinderCare for nine months now and our son has so much fun while learning. Not only is the curriculum filled with child-centered activities that allow them to explore and learn by doing, creating, and playing, but the center offers learning adventures that incorporate life skills and artistic expression.
Charlie has been taking the cooking class since last September and comes home talking about it each and every week. He has also taken an interest in cooking at home and helping us with meal prep, grocery shopping, and choosing healthy foods.
We are excited that he enjoys the unique experiences that cooking class and other Zorn Kindercare programs have to offer.
