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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program


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.

If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

At two years in age, my daughter had never been to daycare or stayed with anyone other than myself. I had decided to go back to work, so I was scared at the at first, but KinderCare was absolutely the right place for her. She has found a lot of support and loving care while learning so much every day! Miss Kris is a fantastic, patient teacher; Caroline talks about her all the time at home! Miss Nadia is so nurturing and giving that Caroline loves her like another grandmother. Miss Tami's phonics class is the highlight of our week because Caroline enjoys it. I have been astounded by how much she's learning, and I am so glad that I enrolled my daughter in KinderCare Millbrook!

- Parent

When we moved to Raleigh 18 months ago, one our top priorities was to find the right pre-school for our son, Daniel. We looked at several options and, in the end, decided on Kindercare Millbrook. It was absolutely the right choice! We found a creative, supportive environment for the growth and development of our child with teachers willing to work with us in making sure we were moving him forward in a healthy, happy way.

I am especially grateful for the head preschool teacher, Ms. Tammi, who is truly an incredible teacher. I have been so impressed with her creative lesson plans, and Daniel has really flourished under her guidance. As he went off to Kindergarten this year, thanks to Ms. Tammi, he already knew how to spell, read and write simple words. Furthermore, he had some initial exposure to math. He has been incredibly well-prepared, making the transition to a new school very smooth. The only problem is that he misses Ms. Tammi! I would strongly recommend Kindercare Millbrook to any parent wanting the best possible care for their child.
