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.

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.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

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 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.

The staff at KinderCare in Rogers is what makes this place great. They are amazing with the kids and provide them with unforgettable experiences. We are continuously amazed by the advances our kids make, on a weekly basis. Working with the staff, from a parent perspective, has been nothing but a good experience for us. They are flexible, quick and willing to help out in any way they can. For us, the staff has gone above and beyond when we welcomed our twins to the world, often coming out to the parking lot to help haul our clan into the center. I can't say enough good about them. Wonderful place!

- Father

Our experience with the Rogers KinderCare has been very positive. I am continually impressed by how well the center is managed. I appreciate that all of the staff, not just his classroom teacher, knows my son by name and greet him with smiles everyday. You can tell that the teachers enjoy their job and truly care about helping kids reach their full potential. It is comforting to know that my son spends his days in a fun, nurturing and creative environment. Thank you KinderCare!

- Mother

We have had a wonderful experience with KinderCare. Our son started in the infant room when he was 11 months old. We had to find care quickly for him and after visiting several other centers, we stopped in to tour with Ms. Tracy. We knew immediately that this was the place for our son! The Directors, teachers, curriculum and facilities won us over! It was a warm, safe and fun learning environment and we were drawn to the energy there on that first visit! We also loved that non of the babies were just sitting in swings or bouncy seats! Our son has learned and grown so much with the help of KinderCare. He thrived right from the beginning and we are blown away on a daily basis on how much he has learned in his short time there. Our whole family loves and trusts the staff with our son and he has so much fun with his friends while learning and playing. We know they truly care about us as well! We feel very connected with how his days are spent and how he's doing. We would recommend KinderCare to everyone! In fact, we've already recommended KinderCare to three of our friends!
