Happy Fall! As the season changes and we prepare for the holidays, we have some fun and exciting events coming up! Our teachers are preparing for our first Parent-Teacher Conference of the year. This is a great time for our families to discuss with the teachers the wonderful learning their child has been doing! We are also getting ready for Thanksgiving and our Dinner with Family and Friends! Check back soon for information on our exciting Winter Break Camp!
Welcome to Roselle KinderCare on Lake Street. Our goal is to provide your child with a strong foundation of learning while having fun in a healthy and safe environment. Our center's staff has over 100 years of educational experiences, that both nurtures and challenges your child each day. We have been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for the past 17 years, which is a testimony to our goal to provide our students with a wide range of experiences to help in their appreciation of learning. Our passionate teachers provide our families with a learning experience that starts in our Nursery and continue through our School-age classroom. We strive to be both a community leader and partner in education.
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.
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.

My kids have been going to KinderCare since they have been several months old. My oldest is going to be five-years-old so I would say that I have a good understanding and appreciation of KinderCare's philosophy. I have also had the opportunity to experience different KinderCare Centers and I can honestly say that the KinderCare Center in Roselle on Lake Street, which is the under the direction of Jacqueline M. Mims, is definitely the best of the best. Let me begin by saying that the center is always kept immaculate. We know that this can be a daunting task when kids are involved. Most importantly, Jackie goes above and beyond to foster a family atmosphere. As a parent, I would have to say that this is the best feature of the Roselle Center. My kids are at the center from 6:30 in the morning until 5:30 in the evening so it comforts me knowing that my kids are being cared for by individuals who have their best interests at heart. In addition, the center has events to celebrate to holidays or just enjoy the season. My wife and I have praised Jackie and her staff numerous times and we thought that it was time that we notify others of the outstanding care our family and other received at Roselle-Lake KinderCare.
