This center currently has openings in all classrooms. We do offer before and after school care for school-age children, and provide transportation to all Morgan Hill schools. We hold several Open Houses throughout the year, which allow families to visit our center, meet our teachers, and take part in daily activities offered that day. We also offer a free day for your child to come and visit the classroom, which is a great way to get to know the teacher and the other children as well as get some firsthand experience of the daily classroom routine. We also offer Parent -Teacher conferences two to three times per year, giving the parents a chance to talk about their child's achievements and accomplishments in the classroom.
Welcome to out NAEYC Accredited center located in Morgan Hill California. We offer high quality programs for infants through school-age children.

What my husband and I like about this facility is how approachable the director is and how she has always made herself available to us whenever we wanted to talk. She gave us a same day walk-through and we, as parents, can drop in any time to observe.
The facility is clean.
Ms. Miriam is one of the main reasons why we are loyal to KinderCare. My 2nd-grader had her when he was here and now my pre-k son has her. My son loves Ms. Miriam. She knows when to be firm and she knows when to be silly with the kids. In my observation, Ms. Miriam puts in a lot of thought as to how she can tailor the lesson plan to engage each child. She makes learning fun and takes the time to research fun activities that can incorporate academics. My son comes home knowing how to write his numbers, is familiar with some site words, and excited about the artwork that he has done. Of course, I work with my son at home to reinforce what he is learning but I also communicate his progress to Ms. Miriam and she continues the lesson at school.
Both my sons have benefited from the extra phonics lessons that are offered. The trick is to find the right teacher to teach this course. My sons have been fortunate enough to have had great phonics teachers such as Ms. Candy and Ms. Eva. They have both moved on to other things but they helped build the foundation and it has made my job at home much easier. My son in pre-k is starting to spell and recognize some site words. He is starting to show interest in stringing sounds together to pronounce simple words. Some of the teachers that I have interacted with and who have shown how much they love these kids are Ms. Esme, Ms. Naomi, Ms. Mayra, and as I have already mentioned, Ms. Miriam.
