Coming in the fall of 2013, Kennydale KinderCare will be adding an Interactive Kindergarten. This innovative, research-based program will be just another choice for our families who already recognize us for our excellent staff as well as our safe and engaging learning environment. We are very excited about this addition. If you would like more information or you would like to add your child’s name to our waiting list, please contact us.
Welcome to Kennydale KinderCare! Our learning center nurtures and educates children from six weeks to 12 years of age. Our research-based programs are designed to help children develop cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. We know that learning should be a happy, natural experience that is lovingly encouraged and gently reinforced. We believe in giving children the opportunity to make choices, be responsible, and to be treated with respect every day.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

The Teachers at Kennydale are amazing. My daughter was nervous and scared the first day I dropped her off and they made the transition gentle and easy. Miss Bonnie and Miss Rowena both came over and introduced themselves to my daughter and started up a conversation with her about things she liked and what she was excited about doing at school. She has learned SO much at Kennydale and made some wonderful friends. Everytime I enter the building with my daughter we are greeted with a friendly hello and hugs. It honestly feels like a second home to both my daughter and I. I know that when I leave her for the day she is going to be loved, cared for, and learn so many new things. She is excited everyday to go to school. Thank you to everyone at Kennydale Kindercare, you guys are ROCK STARS!
