Welcome to the West Naperville KinderCare in Naperville, Illinois. My name is Jennifer and I have been the Center Director at this center for 13 years. I pride myself on the tenure of my wonderful team of teachers. We believe in the whole child theory; not only do we educate our children but we promote good socialization skills, physical development, and we strive to nurture the child's emotional development. Your child will be educated and nurtured in a safe and secure learning environment here every day. We are proud to serve the families in our care in the Naperville, Aurora, and Oswego areas.
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.

As we approach the end of another school year, I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the entire staff at KinderCare for all you have done for our daughter and our family these past four years. Hayley has attended she was three months old and at age four and a half it is obvious the positive effect the caring, nurturing and learning environment of KinderCare has had on her development. Hayley views 'school' as her home away from home and faces each day with a smile and anticipation of learning! I know she finds it very comforting seeing familiar faces around the center year after year. My husband and I are extremely happy with the structured learning environment that KinderCare offers. We became aware of its benefits as early as the age of two and most recently I've discovered Hayley has been doing in Prekindergarten the same level of studies as a friend's son who is in first grade! We also appreciate KinderCare's option of full and part-time. Over the years you have been very understanding and accommodating in meeting the unpredictable and ever-changing needs of our family and schedules. When I was pregnant with Hayley, a lot of investigative work and worry went into choosing the facility that was going to care for her and ultimately become an important part of her young life. We have many different day-care and educational choices in this area and my husband and I are extremely confident with the choice we have made! Thank you to all of you!
