Welcome to the KinderCare Learning Center located on Pocoshock Blvd. We are conveniently located close to both the Powhite Parkway and Chippenham Highway. We take great pride in teaching and watching each and every child learn and grow with us. We offer an excellent literacy-based education curriculum as well as many extra enrichment programs. 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. Everything we do is designed with purpose and opportunity to teach skills that serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning. So, whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!
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.
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.
Twelve fun and unique weeks of camp, all summer long! From May through August, KinderCare offers awesome camps for pre-school, pre-k, and school-age kids. It's a great place to bring friends, and to meet new ones! We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours, so join us for all 12 weeks or as many weeks as you like.
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.
Summer will be filled with learning and fun. The themes for summer camp are:
Animal Antics- Children become animal experts and build 3-D models around the center. Observing animals, learning about animal camouflage, exercising like animals, and making animal crackers from scratch are just some of the activities they will participate in.
Art Expo- Budding artists are sure to enjoy this program where they will learn about several famous artists and the techniques they are known for. They will also learn the basics of composition, including color, line, and texture.
Dig Ancient Egypt- Traveling back in time to Ancient Egypt will give children glimpses of this amazing civilization from the past. During their travels they will investigate pyramids and learn about mummies, and create cartouches using ancient hieroglyphs.
Splish Splash- Dive in and discover the versatility and importance of the amazing liquid that covers two- thirds of the Earth- WATER!!!!
Wilderness 101- Learn some of the basics of surviving in the wilderness, including how to read and use a compass and how to send Morse code messages using flashlights and mirrors.
Wild, Wild West- Get ready for a wild ride into the Old West, a time when fortunes were made and lost, and legends were created. Chidren will set off and explore the Old West of the 1800's and will gain a sense of what it must have been like as pioneers heading west in covered wagons through uncharted territory.

I would like to thank you and your staff for the support you have given us. From day one when we brought our children to KinderCare, you welcomed them with open arms. They love their teachers and their friends and they enjoy coming in every day. They always talk about what they have learned and what they did that day. Thank you for all your support and hugs that you all have given us in the past year.
