Christy Knight, Center Director
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.
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
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.
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
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
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.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I just wanted to recognize two particular teachers at Postal Court KinderCare that my daughter has grown to love- Ms. Lucille and Ms. Pam. They are both wise educators and excellent role models. My three-year-old daughter, Alana, was very apprehensive about starting daycare and the transition hasn't been easy. She said it was scary and the kids were mean (probably because they wanted to share, and she didn't!). After a month or two, she started saying things like "That's what Ms. Pam says...". She tells me that Ms. Lucille and Ms. Pam are her favorite teachers, and I share the same sentiment. Ms. Pam always keeps me involved and shares in our joy as Alana becomes more comfortable. Additionally, the only reason she stopped crying in the mornings is thanks to Ms. Lucille's extra attention. She holds her for a short time to allow for a smooth transition, and helps her wave goodbye to me. She says she will continue to give my daughter this attention as long as she needs it, and works to increase her independence a little every day. She always has a kind word and a bright smile to greet us. I can tell my daughter is very comfortable with your staff and we appreciate all that you do. Please recognize these two wonderful women.

It is hard to believe that we have been with KinderCare for almost six years now. When we started here, we lived pretty close to the center. After a year or so, we moved to Severn. We looked at and interviewed different centers that were closer to our new house but, in the end, it made the most since for us to stay at KinderCare. Even though we would be adding at least an hour of commute time to our drive every day, we just could not pass up the opportunity to have our kids in the best place possible.<br /> <br /> The staff has been outstanding for us. With our children’s allergy and asthma problems, the staff always goes the extra mile to make sure our kids were taken care of. We have had involvement with every teacher and staff member in the center and cannot thank them enough for the teaching and guidance they have provided for our children. I would be happy to recommend KinderCare to anyone who is looking for daycare in the Pasadena area!
Kyle - KinderCare Parent
I really appreciate Christy being so accommodating to where we can bring our son an extra day. It means a lot to us that you are able to be flexible during our family's loss. You all do a great job with Lucas!
Monica - KinderCare Parent
Words cannot express how much Ms. Sandy has touched my children’s lives. It’s always hard for a parent to leave their child with someone else while they go to work every day. As a parent, we are full of concerns and questions like; Is my child happy? Are they being watched? Are they having fun? Are they getting hugs when they are happy and sad? And most importantly, does my child feel loved at school? With Ms. Sandy, I have never once second guessed any of those questions. Every day she met my child with a smile and everyday my child ran up to her to give her a hug. Ms. Sandy knew my child and would take the time to tell me about her day, the good and the bad. I have never seen a two-year-old classroom that was so organized and ran so smoothly. You can tell that Ms. Sandy loves what she does and loves each and every child that steps into her classroom.
Kim D. - KinderCare Parent
I just wanted to take a moment to thank Christy for taking the time to talk to me the other night, for taking my concerns seriously and addressing my concerns them. I will be completely honest, during the time of Christy's transition into becoming the Director, I was not sure how I felt about the change and the influence that it would have on our family or the center as a whole. Much to my pleasant surprise, I am very pleased with the care that Grace is under on a daily basis and Christy has a lot to do with that. I know that often her hard work and dedication go unnoticed, so I hope that you can end another busy week with a smile on your face, proud of what you, and the rest of the staff, are doing for so many kids on a daily basis.
