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.
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.
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.

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!
We toured many daycare facilities before landing at KinderCare on Rockford Road in Plymouth. What impressed us initially was the large outdoor play area that was not next to a busy street, the classrooms were all bright, and the teachers were all engaged with the children. It seemed like a cheerful place to play, learn, and be cared for. When our first son started in the Infant Classroom, the teachers embraced him like he was their own and gave him plenty of love and attention (as well as us!). We felt like he was in a safe place and was getting the socialization and attention that he deserved. As he graduated into the other classrooms, each room had a new curriculum and new teachers that he fell in love with. When he did his Pre-K assessment with the school district, he blew the assessment out of the water! Our second son is experiencing the same love, care, and learning growth. He's had a few health issues that have required a little extra attention and KinderCare staff have been incredibly supportive. He also participates in their Phonics program and is thriving. Both of our kids participate in the KC summer program, and they love the outdoor activities and field trips that the center provides/brings them. They absolutely love the friends they've made. The love and care that our boys receive at KinderCare has been beyond our expectations!
Amanda and Ryan - KinderCare Parent
My two boys have been attending KinderCare for a few years now and it would be hard to imagine sending them anywhere else. My husband and I don't view KinderCare as just a daycare center; it's a second family and a place where our children are learning and growing five days a week. The investment we're making at KinderCare takes the worry of "will my child be ready for kindergarten?" out of the equation, which to us is invaluable. If you're looking for a place where your child will be safe, loved, and well-educated, I would absolutely recommend Rockford Road KinderCare.
Gina - KinderCare Parent
We could not be more impressed with the progress that our daughter has made since starting at Rockford KinderCare. She loves going to school every day and asks to go back to school before we are even out of the parking lot, which is a testament to how much she enjoys being there. Trusting someone to be with your child when you are not there is a very hard thing to do, but with KinderCare, we are at complete ease and know that she is in the best care with the best teachers around. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experiences so far!
Sarah - KinderCare Parent
Our daughter loves Rockford KinderCare. She knows all of her teachers' names and calls them her friends. More importantly, she comes home and tells us about all of the things she's learning about, from emotions to dinosaurs. We believe her daily interaction with other children has made her more social too. Those are experiences she wouldn't get if she weren't enrolled at KinderCare.
