Our KinderCare is unique because we have four divided playgrounds that are appropriate for each age group. In addition, we have a large fenced-in field that the children love to play in. This grassy field is fun for them because they enjoy sprinkler play, organized sports games, obstacle courses, and picnics, and in the winter the children love to make snow angels, snow men, and forts.

For the safety of our non-mobile infants we have divided our infants into two rooms; a non-mobile and a mobile room. This allows our mobile infants to exercise their new crawling and/or walking skills.

We also have a large lobby in our building with a drink station for our parents. We provide a variety of drinks for their convenience. Our goal is to make all of our children and parents as comfortable and happy as possible.

Welcome

Welcome to the Parker KinderCare, we are excited to meet you and your family. We are conveniently located near the I-25 and Lincoln exit, as well as E-470 and Jordan. We hope you will enjoy many years with us as we watch your child grow and learn. Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we are excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!

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

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.

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.

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.

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.

Spanish

Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Teachers & Staff

The teachers at our center are very passionate about what they do and love coming to work each and every day to see what will happen next. Most of our staff have over five years experience in the Early Childhood Education field, and several with ten or more years experience. We like to make education a continuing experience for the teachers that are on staff; we do this by holding bi-annual trainings to ensure that our teachers are getting the proper training to work with our children. We lead with integrity, respect and with education at the heart of everything we do.

September's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Spaces and Places and All About Me
As infants and toddlers explore the spaces and places around them, children in Discovery Preschool will learn all about what makes people the same as well as what makes them different. Infants will experiment with moving toy cars around, build block towers and then knock them down, and even take a tour of the center to see what things are like outside of their classroom! Toddlers will get all revved up as they take a closer look at different vehicles and learn more about neighborhoods, communities, and the jobs that grownups have. In Discovery Preschool, children will be learning about themselves as they play games that strengthen their five senses, discuss feelings and emotions, practice self-help skills, and work on learning the names of body parts.

Children 4 to 5 years old: All About Me and My Home and Family
It’s the beginning of the school year—the perfect time to get to know each other better! Older children will be spending time sharing about themselves, their homes, and their families as they learn what makes people the same and what makes them different. Children will bring their own experiences to the drawing board as they create group stories and 3-D collages about families and homes, pantomime different home- and family-related activities, and draw self-portraits. With our curriculum’s project-related learning component, children in Transitional Kindergarten work together to decide on an individual or whole-group project related to the theme. Past projects have included creating a class book about emotions or working together to build a small-scale home, but who knows—the children may come up with a unique idea that’s entirely their own!

Health and Safety

At KinderCare Learning Centers, your child's safety is one of our top priorities. Not only are our playgrounds fenced in with locked gates, but our interior door of the building has a coded entry where only authorized family members will have a code to enter. A door bell is available to visitors who will be greeted by a Center staff member. At Parker KinderCare we have a Health and Safety Coordinator on site as well, her role includes conducting monthly tornado and fire drills, ensuring that all staff's First Aid and CPR certificates are up to date, and maintaining our high cleanliness standards.

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.

We are very pleased to have both of our boys at KinderCare. My sons and their teachers and directors are consistently taking the extra time to ensure our boys feel loved and not just looked after. There is a consistent focus on new and unique activities that always give us something to talk about over dinner. If we can't be there with our boys each day, we're happy that the KinderCare staff takes such an interest in their education and developmental growth.

I cannot say enough great things about KinderCare and their staff. We put our daughter in another privately owned center when we first moved to Colorado. It was her first time in full-time childcare, and within a month I had to pull her out because of issues I had with staff and the quality of care and curriculum. The afternoon I withdrew her, I walked into KinderCare and was immediately thrilled and extremely impressed. Dusti and Melissa were unbelievably kind and supportive of our situation. They were flexible, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in what WE were looking for, rather than telling me what they could offer. From that day forward I could see that they are involved with every family and child, from day one. They are always available, and if I ever have a question or concern, or need anything at all, I am immediately met with support and action. In the classroom, her teachers have far surpassed my expectations as well. We left all family behind and moved from Oregon to Colorado suddenly. My daughter entered childcare full-time for the the first time, and had been battling several potty-training challenges due to a gastrointestinal disorder she has had since birth. With so many obstacles, I was nervous sending her anywhere. However, her teachers have worked with her on every single level to make her feel comfortable and loved, and have done everything her specialist has asked regarding her disorder. They have bent over backwards and gone above and beyond to make sure we are following every step and alteration to the plan put in place by the doctor. I truly believe that because of Mrs. Donna and Mrs. Christina, she has overcome all of these obstacles and absolutely loves going to school. She is fully potty trained and no longer struggles the way she had since she was born. I attribute their encouragement and support to the majority of her success and excitement. Lastly, the curriculum put in place by KinderCare is exactly what we were looking for. I was initially nervous about going the "corporate" route with our childcare, but quickly realized what a superior setting it is compared to a private center. She is consistently challenged on all levels, and especially loves the art projects. They are highly developed and detailed, and everything they do centers around learning. She went from regressing drastically during the short time she was at the private center, to learning things I had no idea a 2-year-old could grasp. I am amazed daily with what she learns at school because of their curriculum, structure and staff. Everything they teach is created by professionals and customized to fit the individuals and classroom dynamic. I love that her teachers are able to take a highly developed core plan and make it work specifically for her and her friends, based on their needs and personalities. One of the best features, is that with every project comes with photos of my child creating her work. It is wonderful to see her so happy and involved, even when I can't be there personally. After touring eight different centers in Parker, and seeing what an incredible difference this center has had in our lives, I would recommend Dusti and Melissa's KinderCare to absolutely anyone. I am fully confident in our decision to send my daughter there, and honestly could not be happier with our choice!

My children have attended KinderCare since infancy and have enjoyed every minute of it. The staff really caters to the kids and provides a fabulous learning environment. I like how they offer add-on classes to my enhance children’s learning (phonics, Spanish, music). In addition, the Director’s are great to work with; they are very accommodating and genuinely care for all the children in attendance at their center.

My husband and I absolutely love Stonegate KinderCare. We have two children at the school, a one-year-old and a two-year-old. As a parent, it’s hard to drop your children off, in the care of someone else. We are so fortunate for the loving teachers at Stonegate KinderCare. The children love the school and are excited for the new adventures each day brings. As working parents, we can leave them knowing they are safe and happy. KinderCare has created a positive atmosphere for learning and we have been able to see huge changes in their development. We chose KinderCare as a long-term investment in our children’s growth and development. They are a key element in our kids' lives and we are so fortunate to have each one of the teaches at their disposal. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our children!

I have been a parent with KinderCare since 2012 and it has been an extremely fulfilling experience for our entire family. My oldest was 4 and my youngest at the time was 18 months and had never been away from me. All the staff was so welcoming and truly cared about how my babies felt. They kept me informed of everything going on with them and have been a consistent partner in helping me raise my children. On the days they can't go to KinderCare they get sad and can't wait to go back. They offer parents night out once a month and an awesome summer program for school agers. My kids are very attached to their teachers. So much, my 4 year old wanted to go to his teacher's house to make her soup when she was sick, and half the time my son calls me Ms. Carrie (so cute!).
 
When we started attending KinderCare we were living in North Denver and have since moved to Parker just so our kids could stay at KinderCare. I just had my 3rd child in October and everyone was so excited as my pregnancy progressed and now cannot wait for her to come to the infant room. I would not be able to trust anyone as much as I trust them with all of my children. I feel immensely comforted by the fact that they will be able to be with my newborn while I am work. A lot of the teachers and the directors have their own children at the center so you know that your child will be well cared for because they trust them with their own kids. I wouldn't put my kids anywhere else and am truly appreciative of everything they do for my children everyday.
