AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited - nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.
Infant Programs (6 weeks - 1 year)
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.
Toddler Programs (1 – 2 Years)
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.
Discovery Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)
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.
Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)
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.
Prekindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)
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.
Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)
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.
Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)
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.
Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.
Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program
Our Cooking Academy program teaches kids confidence in the kitchen through hands-on activities that build important math, science, and social skills. They’ll learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and nutrition—and get to eat some delicious food made all on their own like carrot and turmeric hummus, pumpkin muffins, vegetable curry, black bean and sweet potato chili, and so much more!
Phonics & Reading Adventures
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.
We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart

We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.

As Hayden’s parents, our goal is always to provide our daughter with a safe, healthy and fun environment. Enrolling her in KinderCare is allowing her to grow and prosper to her full potential.
Hayden was introduced to the infant room in September of 2013, where educated and caring teachers constantly surrounded her. As Hayden developed, she transitioned to the Toddler room and later into Discovery Preschool. After nearly two years at KinderCare, our daughter is blossoming.
Annie O’Brien, the center’s director, is creative, helpful and informative. She makes herself available and is receptive to concerns or suggestions made by parents. The entire teaching staff is a breath of fresh air. They welcome each child and immediately involve him/her in on-going activities, making dropping a child off effortless.
As Hayden grows with the center, she develops friendships with other children there; many are the same children she started with as an infant. We could not be more proud of the little girl she is developing into, and a part of her success is the center and the staff.
Thank you KinderCare for making a great impression on our daughter.

My daughter started KinderCare in June 2014, she had just turned four and had been in previous childcare centers but we wanted a school closer to home as next year she will be in public Kindergarten. I cannot say enough great things about this center. When we started there was a little bit of turnover within the management team, but the new Director assigned Ms. Annie has been nothing but wonderful! You can tell she has invested herself into the center from the minute you walk in the door; she has made so many positive changes for the best interest of the center. My daughter is always greeted by a member of management, either the Center Director or Assistant Center Director when she arrives and leaves, as there is always a member of management at this center from open to close, which I love! Then she runs to her class to be greeted by open arms by her teacher Ms. Mel. Like I said before, she's been at other childcare centers but I don’t know what it is with this center, but my daughter absolutely loves it here. When I pick her up she cries that I am there and ask if we can stay longer, after already being there over 10 hours. The curriculum I can’t say enough about...she comes home with new songs she’s learned, and even started writing numbers and her full name in less than 3 months! All the staff at Nashua KinderCare has been very welcoming and friendly to us and I wouldn’t want my child anywhere else. Thank you Annie & Staff at Nashua KinderCare for making a difficult decision so much easier everyday! I know she’s in good hands when I leave her with you!

"I am writing to inform you that I will be pulling Ryder out of daycare, due to a lack of available shifts with my current employer. My husband and I appreciate all of the loving care that you and your staff have given to the baby. I am hoping that within a few months we will get back on track, and Ryder will be able to return. I prefer having him in school where he can interact with other children and expand his little mind. You have a wonderful staff, and I wouldn't dream of taking him to a different facility. Thank you so much, and we hope to be back by Spring, if not earlier. Sincerely, Melissa P."

"We have had and continue to have exceptional experiences with KinderCare of Nashua. The staff is extremely flexible and friendly, great with the children, and very knowledgeable when it comes to educating our children. Had it not been for the staff, our oldest daughter would be struggling in school. The staff identified a potential learning disability prior to our daughter entering public Kindergarten and because of that we had her tested at the start of Kindergarten. After a number of tests, we learned she was in fact identified as having a disability. Our daughter is now in first grade and has made significant strides thanks to the staff at KinderCare."

My child has been enrolled at KinderCare for two years. From the very first day, as I walked out of her classroom, into the Assistant Director's office in tears, and she reassured me that both my daughter and I would be okay, I have felt extremely confident in the care there. I am so thankful that I can feel at ease knowing that she is safe and secure at school every single day while being given the opportunity to learn, grow and make new friends. At times over the past two years, my child has required a lot of patience and understanding, and the staff has always gone above and beyond in providing her with gentle re-direction, nurturing guidance, as well as willingly incorporating strategies from her therapist into their classrooms. Her teachers have always been open to my feedback and they have always seemed as excited as I am to see her make any progress! At times over the past two years, there have been many last minute changes in her schedule which have consistently created disruptions in the school's daily schedule, but the staff has always made us feel welcome and been extremely flexible, understanding and supportive. I cannot thank the KinderCare staff, especially the director Miss Annie, for all of the love, support, and guidance they have provided for not only my child and all of the other children they care for, but for myself as well. Her and I both walk into school smiling every single day because we're both happy to be there and much of that has to do with the staff's pleasant, upbeat attitude, and positive environment that they have created. The saying, "It takes a village to raise a child" could not be more true in my heart and I feel very blessed and thankful to have KinderCare as an enormous piece of our village.
