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.
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
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
At home we are all excited about the new milestone and all the preparations that go with it. At the same time, that excitement comes with a special feeling gratitude, and this is gratitude to your institution. I still tear up to this day whenever I remember leaving her at KinderCare Westwood in her tiny car seat with only 16 weeks of life. Seeing her today, I know I would not have made it without all of you. Yes indeed, it’s a tight financial sacrifice to keep your child at KinderCare, but when people comment on how expensive KinderCare is, I tell them is the best expense one can ever pay. From April 2008 to date I have never had to worry for a minute about leaving her in your care. I literally forget about her at work until it’s time to pick her up. That is what I call a priceless peace of mind, and I’ve been more than happy to pay every dime for it! On that score, and on Stephanie’s behalf, I’ll say thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and keep on doing the good job you’re doing out there! You have an incredible staff whose love for the kids is more than obvious in every way. How can we ever forget Ms. Dodi, Ms. Caitlin, Ms. Sam, Ms. Amy, Ms. Stephanie, Ms. Lori, Ms. Sherry, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Caroline, Ms. Erin, Ms. Tammy, Ms. Jen, and all the many others we have met along the way in Westwood and Plainville. They will forever be part of Stephanie’s memory bank as she grows up, and mine too.<br /> <br /> We shall certainly be back to visit on school vacation days, so this is not really a farewell; it is a thank you and see you soon.<br /> <br /> Many regards and God Bless!
Marilyn - KinderCare Parent
I wanted to take a moment and share a little bit about my family's experience at KinderCare. While my family and I don't live in Plainville, and several other schools are driven past during our daily commute, my family readily came to the conclusion that KinderCare in Plainville was the only viable option for us. From the moment we entered the infant nursery we felt the difference. You see, we had visited several schools in a attempt to find the right place for our premature son, but the teachers here, Mary and Caroline, were just, different. They welcomed us in and listened, really listened, while we unveiled our son's story of triumph over tragedy. They in turn shared their stories of parenthood and all this amazing journey encompasses. They immediately took an honest interest in my son, turning to him and talking to him. They read him stories and cuddled him encouraging him to make his little sound. It was this moment, coupled with so many others, that drew my wife and I to share "the glance". The glance that says…yes. Yes to this place, these people and our sons new home away from home. And from that exchange, until this moment now, my hopes, ideals and expectations have not only been met, they have been surpassed.
Keith - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare has been an essential part of our family for over a year now, and in that time my daughter has grown immensely. Thanks to her teachers, my little girl has grown in confidence, her ability to relate to others, and knowledge in a variety of subjects. I honestly could not thank the teachers and administrators enough as they have contributed to what has been an extremely positive first school experience for my daughter. We look forward to many more years in this KinderCare family.
