AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

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.

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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

Cooking

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.

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.

Our Teachers

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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • As a stay at home who had to return to work daycare or a learning facility was a big hurdle! The heartache of leaving you children in someone else's care coupled with the guilt or having to return to work was momentous at times! But KinderCare made it as seamless as possible! They welcomed my many calls to 'check-in'! I could not be there for their first week, but the KinderCare staff took pictures and made a collage! My twin girls talk about their teachers Ms. Victoria an Ms. Ashley as though they were an extension of our family! My three year girls can recite the spelling of their names and writing their names reading and calling out letters and numbers! Telling me stories! Comprehending stories! KinderCare has been a blessing to our family and their structured and balanced syllabus pails in comparison to their loving, dedicated and patient staff! What a great place to help foster the joy of learning and playing!!! From Lorene the Center director to the chef that prepares the meals...everyone is stellar in what they do! So, from this Mom of twins to your family! I say highly recommended and suggested without reservation!! Thanks KinderCare of North Billerica!!

  • My nephew attends KinderCare in North Billerica. I drop him off and occasionally pick up a few times during the week. The staff at KinderCare are very welcoming and make you feel as though you are family. They take an active roll in every child's life that goes above and beyond. Any questions or concerns I have they are always helpful in suggestions. The program they do everyday with the children is phenomenal. Everyday they are learning something new. It's always posted in the classroom, so if I don't get to talk to the main teaches I am still aware of they learned that particular day. KinderCare has been the best for my nephew and I'm so grateful to have the connection with them that seems so rare to find these days.

  • How do I love KinderCare North Billerica? Let me count the ways! When we first started looking for childcare I called all of the local daycare centers and not one was able to accommodate my husband’s rotating schedule, except for KinderCare. They are very flexible and understanding if we have a last-minute schedule change. Ms. Krissy, when she was caring for my daughter and learned I was pregnant and having a boy, knitted him a lovely blue blanket that we still have to this day and he is five now! Not only do my kids love all the teachers and staff there but Lorene and her crew have bailed us out many times that we found ourselves in need of “extra” childcare. One particular instance comes to mind. During the summer my mother-in-law passed away and we needed an extra day of childcare for, not only our son who already goes to KinderCare three days a week, but for our daughter as well who is school-age and doesn’t even go there anymore. Lorene agreed to take both of them the day of the funeral - our son for the extra day and our daughter. There was the day that a car was driven into the front of the school. All the kids had to be evacuated. It was a terrible situation but it was handled with calm! Erin called me at work to let me know what had happened and asking me to pick up the kids. I picked them up and the scene I saw when I arrived just served to reinforce why my kids go to KinderCare. All the kids were in the fenced-in playground area playing and acting like kids. Parents were checked in as they came and kids were signed out in an orderly fashion. Ms. Katie signed the kids out without any undue drama. So basically I started with KinderCare because they were able to accommodate our crazy schedule but I have stayed with KinderCare these past seven years because they have proved worthy of my trust with the most important people in my life – my kids! They go over and above the call of duty and I could go on and on and on but we just plain LOVE them there!

  • For the last seven years, KinderCare has taken such great care of our two boys. When I come with our second grader to pick up our preschooler, they are so happy to see him and welcome him with open arms as if he were still part of the KinderCare family. I’m convinced their extracurricular phonics program has played an integral role in both of our sons’ ability to read. Our second grader reads at a 4th grade level and our preschooler can read at a kindergarten level, thanks to Kelsey Phonics and Reading!
