We are excited to share that our center has recently gone through a mini center make-over! We have had new floors installed in the classrooms and lobby area and the interior of our building has been repainted. We have added a lot of new toys and new furniture to the rooms, making them look almost brand new!
Welcome to KinderCare Learning Center located on Abel Street in Milpitas! Our program provides the foundation to children's early education. Through hands-on experiences, our program is designed to promote learning in several educational domains. Themed units encourage children's curiosity and every day learning. We provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment from Infancy through Kindergarten. Our teachers will honor your child's unique talents and interests by providing them with customized attention and activities that will enable them to learn and grow at their own pace and in their own way. We would love the opportunity to meet your family and introduce them to our KinderCare family. Come by and see what we have to offer!
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.
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.

The Infant program in KinderCare (Abel Street) is staffed with very good and caring teachers. They provide our kids not only the warmth of hugs but provide them with the right stimulating environment to allow them to develop and grow. My daughter started out sitting in one of their play areas, and in no time learned how to crawl and stand. What I like about their Infant room is that it is very organized. The Infant room is cleaned every single day, all of the toys are cleaned and washed every day, the bedding on the crib are washed every day.Each baby has their own crib and their own drawer and a section in the refrigerator for their milk. They have gloves and warmers and protocols in place to handle breast milk/formula and the food for our precious ones. We are provided with daily charts on how our baby’s day went, like how many hours they slept, how much of their milk they finished and what their daily temperament was like. They also provide booties just so whoever goes in the Infant room will not be carrying their outside shoes inside.I cannot say enough good things about the teachers, Ms. Marisu, Ms. Herlinda and Ms. Kassaundra. They are all warm and caring and they never fail to talk and greet my daughter and all the other kids that go into the room. It gives me peace of mind knowing that these teachers are there for my daughter.I also appreciate Ms. Denise for always being on top of things. If there is something you need, she will get back to you promptly. Or if something needs to be brought to your attention, she will be there to help you out. She is hands on with the kids too. I’ve seen her carry my daughter, have small talk with her and know how she is progressing. I think she knows each and every single child in her school and that is something all parents would like the Director to be.
