Welcome

Here at KinderCare in Plainville we consistently strive to not only meet the needs of our families, but also exceed those needs. We believe that each day we are provided opportunities to play a positive role in the life of a child, and we embrace that opportunity for the honor that it is. As team of early education specialists we value each and every opportunity to encourage questions, foster children’s development and encourage laughter. We believe that a whole child is a happy child.

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.

April's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Growing Gardens

What better time to explore the beauty and science of flowers and gardens than the spring? Infants’ learning will focus on sensory experiences with different plants and flowers, while toddlers and three-year-olds have the opportunity to learn how to care for plants. We’ll plant seeds in soil, water the plants, observe bugs and discover how they help plants grow, and even plant a butterfly garden outside! We’ll build math skills by counting seeds, learn new vocabulary words related to flowers and plants, and as always, sing songs and read books involving gardens. 

Children 4–5 years old: In the Spring + Wild Animals

For children in the Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten Classrooms, April is about exploring all things spring and discovering wild animals! Preschoolers will look for signs of spring outdoors, make mud cakes and count the twigs placed in them, and paint still-life paintings of things related to spring. When our learning turns to wild animals, we’ll learn about the habitats and habits of creatures big and small while maintaining a focus on learning lowercase letters. 

The older children in Transitional Kindergarten will focus on project-related work and pick something to work on together. In years past, children have painted a mural, made spring parade floats, painted wild animal masks, and created a model of a wild animal’s habitat. Both of these units focus on expanding the children’s understanding of the natural world around them.

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.

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.

Sports Club

Teachers & Staff

Our team of educators walk through the door each morning with a renewed energy and desire to love and educate children. Collectively, our educators understand what it means to "have a good day at school" and do everything in their power to ensure that their children have just that. While we each come from different schools of knowledge, and bring a variety of experiences to the table, our love and passion for teaching is what truly unites us together. The phrase, "It takes a village to raise a child" is not only embraced here in Plainville, it's lived by daily. We welcome you to come and spend time getting to know us, you will be glad you did.

    Jessica Brouillard, Center Director

    Each and every day, I am given the opportunity to share in the lives of so many children and their families. I believe that it is an honor that parents have welcomed me into their lives and allow me to be a part of watching their children grow, learn, and explore. While giving children a rich environment for reaching their fullest potential - I am able to listen to the most adventurous stories, watch their eyes light up with excitement, give them opportunities to learn about things that captivate their attention, see them accomplish something new, and make their school a home away from home for them. I'm so very grateful for each and every relationship that I have been given the opportunity to form over the years and I look forward to many more years with these amazing children and their families.

    Prior to joining our team, Jessica attended Franklin Pierce University where she played volleyball and attained her bachelor's degree in psychology. Her love of learning drew her to taking more classes within the early childhood field. Jessica received her child development associate from Ellis University, and also took classes on leadership and management in the early childhood setting from Fisher College. She started with us as a Toddler Teacher in 2007 and quickly showed her ability to lead. Jessica took the opportunity to be an Infant/Toddler Program Specialist, where she was an integral part of building a great team of teachers and being a support system to her staff and the families within her program. Jessica then took on the role of being the Assistant Director here at our school for three years; in this role, she learned how to run the day to day operations of the center. Jessica has the innate ability to make you feel at home from your first interaction with her and we are so lucky to have her as such an important part of our school.  After the birth of her second son, Jessica returned after maternity leave to be the Director of our center. Her pride and passion has always been with people - and how to make them feel the most comfortable when leaving their precious children with us. Every day she comes to work with a drive to make a difference for children and families. They say you'll never work a day in your life if you love what you do, and that is exactly how Jessica feels about being a part of the KinderCare family.

    Kristen, Floater

    Teaching and learning should bring joy. How powerful would our world be if we had kids who were not afraid to take risks, who were not afraid to think, and who had a champion? Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

    Ms. Kristen is thrilled to be part of the Plainville Kindercare team! She spends the school year as a second grade teacher in Blackstone, MA but is so lucky to come spend the summer teaching your children! She has been working with young children since high school and continue to grow as a educator each day. She brings a positive attitude and enthusiasm to the class as she tries and help each child reach their full potential. Each day brings a new chance to learn, grow, problem solve and make new friends which she teaches children to recognize!

Health and Safety

Our school prides itself in minting the highest level of efficiency in regards to health and safety. We proudly offer not one, but two coded door entrances which require families to know two different codes to enter certain portions of our school. Our school playground is completely fenced in and each developmental age group enjoys its own separate play space outdoors. Each member of our team is certified in both First Aid and CPR annually, and medications are administered with written physician/parental consent by certified trained administrators. The health and safety of our children is our utmost priority and we do all we can to ensure that we meet the highest level of accomplishment in this area.

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.

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&nbsp;part of Stephanie’s memory bank as she grows up, and mine too.<br /> &nbsp;<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 /> &nbsp;<br /> Many regards and God Bless!

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.

- Father

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.
