Welcome to Northwest KinderCare Learning Center Located on North Rockwell. Our staff members are whole-heartedly committed to providing excellent care for all of our students. Parents throughout our community have considered our facility a second home for their children. Northwest KinderCare is a place where a child can be themselves while they learn and play in a safe environment.
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.
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.

My daughter, Kelaiaha Williams, has been going to KinderCare over two years. Although it has not been the best relationship, everything changed since Pauline took over. Since Pauline took over, I feel extremely comfortable leaving my daughter without reservation. Pauline had done a fantastic job in dealing with cleanliness and parent relations. My husband and I lead hectic work lives. Our schedules cause extreme difficulty finding adequate daycare for my daughter, so Pauline uses communication boards or contacts me personally in advance when the daycare will be closed, or if something is needed to provide adequate care for my daughter when we are away. Amanda is Kelaiaha's teacher. She is awesome and Kelaiaha feels welcomed when she is around Amanda, Pauline and their well trained staff. The staff is friendly and they keep me informed. When an issue needs to be addressed, they do so privately. To me, that is what I consider important when someone else is caring for my daughter and her welfare. This will be Kelaiaha’s last year at KinderCare because she will be 12 years-old. Pauline and the whole crew will sincerely be missed by the Williams family. We have and will continue to have appreciation for this wonderful facility and everything that they have done for our family. We pray their continued success in all of their future endeavors. Furthermore, Pauline's strength and resilience is unmatched. As a mother, I have had many reservations about who to leave my daughter with, and who to allow as an influence in her life. I am so thankful that I found you. I am more than appreciative of Pauline as a woman, a mother, and as a business woman. I am happy to leave my young, impressionable daughter in your care. Thank you so much, and keep being you!
