<p>Our Center was just voted "Best Preschool" in Milpitas, California by our community on September 28, 2012!  </p>
Welcome to KinderCare Learning Center located on Hillview Drive in Milpitas, Ca. Your child/children will learn through hands on experiences in the areas of social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Our Teachers are caring and passionate about children and would love the opportunity to show you. We are looking forward to meet you and your family and be able to show you our quality program.
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.
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
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.
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.

Not saying this center is ideal or perfect, but there are many reasons that they deserve 5 stars! Just voted as Milpitas' Best Day Care is another echo of their effort and success.My baby has been going to this day care since she was three months old and throughout times that I shopped for other centers, I always ended up deciding to stay. The center director Ida is approachable, understanding and a problem solver; which gives me a very reassuring feeling that the school and I are on the same side. The teachers go to different classrooms throughout the day and they all know my baby, which creates a big center but small family feeling for my kid and reassures me again that they care about my baby and my baby fits in great. The center involves parents in quarterly activities and provides timely services. We attended the summer BBQ, Halloween Parade and during the upcoming busy holiday season, the center offers once a month extended babysitting service. The teachers are approachable and willing to accommodate to the special request we made as the babies transition from one stage to another such as learning to use sippy cups, eating solid food, no outdoor play until she walks more stably, etc. The tuition is $1600 a month for full time five days a week. It's relatively expensive compared to the smaller scale home based day care, but it includes formula and baby food for the first year as well as lunch and snacks, which a lot of big centers don't offer (for example, Action Plus does not offer free lunch and they charge $3 a day extra). Besides that, where else can you get a wide range of kid exposures with a small classroom setting? My kid loves checking out other bigger kids (from toddlers to kindergarten) yet her classroom only has eight other kids in it. All in all, I can't help but rave about this center. Highly recommend!
