Welcome

Welcome to Noblesville KinderCare!
Our center is tucked right inside of the South Harbour neighborhood off of Sheridan Road (SR 38).  Our center is NECPA accredited as well as Level 4 with the State of Indiana's Paths to Quality Program.  We pride ourselves on offering quality educational programs where we build a solid foundation for future school success by developing the whole child; we place an emphasis on assisting your child's growth in their social, cognitive, and physical development. 
Families are an integral part everything we do and extrememly important in aiding a home school connection. We believe it takes a village to raise a child, and our parents consider us to be an extension of their families (their village). You child will not only have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support from a team of child development experts who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children.
You’ll 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 learning!

Accreditation

Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

Our Programs

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.

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

Math

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.

Music

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.

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.

    1. January's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Light and Dark, plus the Sky and Weather

      Through shadow play, experiments with flashlights, observing the Sun and more, infants and toddlers will enjoy learning about light and dark this month. Infants continue sensory development by looking at contrasting patterns and at objects that are clearly defined by sharp edges and bright colors, while toddlers will build on their understanding of the light and dark concepts with play around daytime and nighttime. The older Discovery Preschool children will turn their attention to the sky as they learn about weather, the Moon, the Sun, and stars.

      Children 4–5 years old: Transportation, Healthy Bodies, and Winter

      For children in the Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms, January is filled with variety! They’ll begin by learning about transportation and studying how things get from “here” to “there.” A few weeks later, the focus will shift to health and bodies, with an emphasis placed on how to make good choices for a growing body. Towards the end of the month, children will be introduced to the transformative nature of the winter season and learn how to dress and take care of themselves when it’s cold outside.

    1. December's Learning Focus

      Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Family, Friends, and Things that Go!

      Infants and toddlers will be exploring family and friends, while three-year-olds will focus on things that go vroom! Social and emotional development is foundational to growth and development in babies, so this month, infants and toddlers will participate in activities that reinforce their connection to family while also exploring connections that exist outside their home, such as friends. Meanwhile, their older friends in Discovery Preschool will learn about and play around with things that move (like bicycles, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes), which are all very exciting for little ones as they continue to explore the world outside their homes. 

      Children 4–5 years old: My Country + Tools and Machines

      The four- and five-year-olds continue exploring the world around them by learning about the state and country they live in! They’ll sings songs, play games based on travel, and learn about flags, state foods, and more. Children will also be introduced to cardinal directions (east, west, north, and south) and gain an appreciation for travel and meeting new friends from different places. 

      Children are naturally fascinated with machines and how things work and are put together. So to encourage that fascination, during the second half of this month children will learn about and play around with tools and machines. In addition to building literacy skills by using the names of machines and tools, children will develop math skills by graphing information, counting wheels, and more.

Health and Safety

At Noblesville KinderCare, your child's health, safety, security & well-being are our top priorities. Not only are all of our outside perimeter doors locked to ensure security, but they lead to the playgrounds which are all fenced with locked gates as well.
In addition, the front door of the building has a coded entry where only enrolled families and staff are given a code. Visitors are asked to ring the doorbell and wait for a member of management to check their photo ID and escort them to the appropriate classroom.  
The Noblesville KinderCare has an appointed Health & Safety Coordinator on staff to complete daily safety checks as well as monthly fire and disaster drills.  Our teachers and staff participate in First Aid and CPR certification annually.  The infant staff is trained in safe sleep practices and SIDS prevention.  Our center provides nutritious meals and snacks planned by registered dietitians.  Each classroom practices family style dining where teachers model appropriate table manners and encourage children to assist in meal time routines.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

I would first off saying that this day care is awesome! They welcomed my children with open arms. When my kids first started, I was nervous, but with the help of the staff and the director, my experience has been great. They keep you updated on your kids and what's going on in the center. It's clean. It smells good. The staff are well-dressed. I would recommend parents to experience the trust and the love like I have.

- Mother

Noblesville KinderCare is like family to us and has been a huge blessing in our lives these past three years! I am a single mother with three kids enrolled who have benefited very much socially and academically. This great benefit comes from a kind and knowledgeable staff who have my children’s best interest in mind and share the same goals and values when it comes to supporting and encouraging my children. The staff has done an excellent job helping to prepare my son for kindergarten this year. They also have been an added resource to my school-age daughters with homework and projects. Noblesville KinderCare provides a very open, friendly and safe environment. I feel I can come to staff with any question or concern and it will be handled with care and positive feedback. The center is always smelling clean and fresh giving a feel of warmth and hospitality. Lastly, the staff does a fantastic job communicating all daily and upcoming events as well as changes to the curriculum in a timely manner which causes life to run very smoothly on a day-to-day basis. We are very fortunate and grateful to have found such a wonderful daycare fit! Thanks so much!

- Mother

I'm 43 years old and well aware that educational curriculum is not the same as when I was a child. Children are now not only on computers in Kindergarten but expected to be at a higher level for reading and math than ever before for their age groups. I wanted my son to be given the tools of phonics and simple mathematical skills for a good foundation to be fully prepared when entering Kindergarten. We were provided this asset with the KinderCare's Learning Adventures program.

In Junior Kindergarten, he had lessons 2-3 times a week in both areas and loved it. I am thrilled to say my son's elementary school just sent his first quarter reading and math test scores and he excelled over the average student in his kindergarten class. When people told me in the past I was jumping the gun in having my son tutored by the program before entering school, his test scores proved them all wrong.

- Mother

As a teacher, I know how important early literacy is for educational success. We enrolled Michael in the Learning Adventures Phonics program to help support and further is love for books. By the time he was four and a half years old, he was reading small, short stories on his own. He is as proud of himself as we are of him.

My husband and I are so pleased with the program that we signed him up for Math Learning Adventures!

- Mother

Attending KinderCare for three years has confirmed KinderCare's level of performance in providing a valuable educational experience. Tyler went through an entire list of scrambled sight words and placed each letter in it's correct place by sounding the picture of the word out.
