Congratulations to our Knowledge Universe Early Childhood Educator Award winner Ms. Jaime! Welcome to the Pottstown KinderCare. We are conveniently located near the Armand Hammer Boulevard and Route 422 Entrance. We have been a presence in the community for over 25 years. Our staff commitment to Early Childhood Education and their years of service has enabled us to become NAEYC accredited and maintain a Keystone Star 4 rating. Our experts have designed our curriculum to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child-initiated discovery. You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels, and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills. Whether your child has first words or kindergarten on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!

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.

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.


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.

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.

This is a bitter sweet transition for our family. We have been with Kindercare for over eight years between our two boys. While we are so excited to enter this new chapter of having two school age children, it also means that we must say goodbye to all of the wonderful teachers at KLC.
The words " thank you" don't begin to capture the appreciation we feel for all you've done for our family. Yes, you've taught them their letters, numbers,colors and shapes, but it's also so much more then that. You've comforted my children when they were distraught, bandaged their boo-boos when they got hurt, mediated their conflicts with peers, encouraged them to try new things, stimulated their curiosity and fostered their imaginations.
You've helped to raise my children during the hours when I couldn't  be with them. I was able to to go to work every day with the peace of mind that my children were safe and well cared for. There has never been a time when I questioned if Kindercare was the best placement for my children. NEVER.
You listened to any concerns I've had over the years and always treated my husband and me with dignity and respect. We've been encouraged to partcipate and volunteer in classroom events and to share in our children's learning on a regular basis.
We also very much value the curriculum offered by Kindercare. Both Logan and Aiden habe been so well prepared for the demands and expectations of Kindergarten, that the trantion to elementary school has been a smooth one.
So, for lack of a better way to say this; THANK YOU!! Thank you for all that you do to set young children on a path to success.... in school and in life.

- Family

We wanted to let you all know what an important part of the Apeaer Family you have all been to us. From the first day with Amanda in 2000 to now, 10 years later, you have been such an important part of our children's lives. We know that Amanda and Jack were always being taken care of with love, care, special attention and a lot of patience. You have helped us stop using the "binky", potty trained with us and helped them navigate their first steps. You were there to help them learn their colors, letters, shapes, and do their first art work. You were there when Amanda tried to take over the class and when Jack had a "little extra" energy. You have helped raise our children and for that we are so grateful! There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are all very special people with very important jobs that mean so much to so many families! Thank you.
