The Best Childcare in Pittsburgh 2012 – from Pittsburgh Magazine
Welcome to Monroeville KinderCare. Our experts designed our classrooms — and every activity and lesson — to help prepare your child for success in school and
beyond. With designated learning centers such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich
social play and child-initiated discovery.
You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels,
and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills.
Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for
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.

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.
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Last week KinderCare hosted a professional development day for teachers. it is my understanding that classrooms and teachers were recognized at this event. I wanted to share why my child's classroom is world class. I have worked in education for over 15 years and have collaborated with many teachers. i am compelled to write for one reason...Stacy Miller. As your award winning Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Stacy embodies all of the qualities of an exceptional teacher. Her dedication to her students is unparalleled. As a small business owner I know that positive feedback is just as important if not more so than negative feedback. We have been pleased to have our family as a part of the KinderCare family since January 2005. My son started attending as a three-month-old infant. My two children have received excellent care overall at KinderCare. I never truly appreciated the outstanding educational start that my children received until my son started public school last year. Prior to attending a full day Kindergarten in Plum School District, my son spent three days a week in Ms. Stacy's Kindergarten classroom. The individualized attention, encouragement and excitement for learning that he gained in Ms. Stacy's class not only prepared him for the first grade but gave him confidence in his abilities that will last him throughout his school years. In June I lost my position at Gateway School District due to state wide budget cuts. My husband and I had to take a long hard look at our finances and decide if we could afford to keep our five-year-old daughter at KinderCare. We decided that we must do what we could to keep her in Ms. Stacy's class because every cent spent would be well worth the investment in her education. When I pick her up from school each day, she bubbles over recalling what she has learned in class that day which just affirms this decision. I have been privileged to see Ms. Stacy's interaction with the children at various times of the day. She always has a comforting or encouraging word and commands such respect and reverence from her pupils. Stacy's creativity and consistency help the children to not only learn new skills but also develop into caring citizens. At a time in education when teachers are being blamed for societal woes, I must stand up and say that we need to support and recognize teachers like Stacy Miller who give so much to help mold the future...our children. Although I have enjoyed working and interacting with many of the teachers and staff at KinderCare I must say that Stacy Miller is your crown jewel. It is my hope that you will do what you can to reward her outstanding talent and dedication.
