AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited - nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.
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.
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
Our Cooking Academy program teaches kids confidence in the kitchen through hands-on activities that build important math, science, and social skills. They’ll learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and nutrition—and get to eat some delicious food made all on their own like carrot and turmeric hummus, pumpkin muffins, vegetable curry, black bean and sweet potato chili, and so much more!
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.
We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
We LOVE our Shannon Park KinderCare!!! We are so happy with the care and 'extras' they offer. We are proud to say that our son will be going to Kindergarten knowing how to read. We could of not of done without KinderCare's wonderful phonics program!! I would highly recommend Shannon Park KinderCare to anyone looking for child care.
Ben K. - KinderCare Parent
As a parent, I cannot say enough great things about the teachers, staff and Shannon Park KinderCare center! My husband and I have been bringing our children to KinderCare since 2006. We started our daughter at another daycare center and ran into issues with the care she had been receiving. As new parents, we were very concerned that this was a regular occurrence in all centers. When we checked out Shannon Park KinderCare in Rosemount, we knew that the care she would receive there would be different. We could just tell that the staff loved their jobs and the children loved them because of it. The class structures and routines really help kids learn not only basics (like ABCs and 123s) but also how to be good citizens. We believe that the KinderCare program really gives kids a head start for school. When it was time for our daughter to start Kindergarten, it was amazing how smooth the transition was.
Stacy R. - KinderCare Parent
Our children started at the Shannon Park KinderCare in Rosemount five years ago in the infant room and two-year-old room. Five years later, we are still at the same KinderCare and LOVE IT!!
The KinderCare teachers become an extension of your family. The teachers in the younger classrooms are wonderful with the little ones. We never had to worry about nervous or anxious children because the teachers are quick to welcome the children into the classroom and they warm right up! The teachers in the Preschool and Prekindergarten rooms do a phenomenal job of preparing children for Kindergarten. Our children have grown very attached to so many of the teachers. It shows by how excited they are when they see their teachers and how often they talk about them when they are at home. They still seek out teachers from previous years to say hello and give them hugs!
This KinderCare center has a very low staff turnover compared to other centers. Most of the teachers that were at KinderCare when my children started five years ago are still here today. It's reassuring to know our children are spending their day with people committed to helping them learn and grow.
I can't say enough wonderful things about the Center Director and Assistant Center Director. They are always present and engaged in the classrooms and day to day activities. We have never had any major issues with this center, but for the occasional minor issues they have always been quick to act and respond. I always feel like they are working with me and not against me - so important as a parent!
The Learning Adventures programs - Wow!!! I cannot say enough great things about these programs! My children have participated in the Music, Cooking, Math and Phonics programs during our time at KinderCare and have loved all of them! I would recommend any of them but if you can only choose one, the Phonics program is top-notch! My oldest daughter started Kindergarten this year and thanks to the Phonics program and the Prekindergarten curriculum, she was mastering sight words, reading simple books and was even starting to write words based on how they sounded. This program is worth every penny!
I would absolutely recommend the Shannon Park KinderCare to anyone and I am so thankful for the roll this center has played in the lives of our two children.
