AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

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.

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.

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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

Cooking

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.

Math

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.

Music

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.

Spanish

Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Our Teachers

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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • I absolutely love the staff at Rice Street KinderCare, my Granddaughter has been attending there for just over a year and she LOVES going to school!  I can tell that her teachers truly care about her.  

    Kim - KinderCare Parent
  • We are very happy with the center and all of the wonderful teachers. I am especially thankful for Ms. Shereen, she is wonderful and the way that my daughter smiles at her and doesn't say a peep on mornings when she is there at drop off lets me know how much my child loves her. That means the world to me.

    Kim - KinderCare Parent
  • The Teachers and Staff at KinderCare of Roseville are amazing! As a new mom I was very nervous about her care and development with so many daycare choices out there. The people at KinderCare teach her, play with her and love her like she is one of their own. I can call anytime and check on her and they keep me informed on how she is doing and she is always so happy when I pick her up. The kindness and enthusiasm they have is outstanding, and I couldn't have imagined a better place for my little girl! Thank you KinderCare for taking care of my baby!

    Heather - KinderCare Parent
  • We are so happy we transferred to Rice KinderCare. My son has blossomed since transferring here. The staff is wonderful. From the beginning they have worked with us as a family to make sure that he gets what he needs, right down to Katie preparing an activity bucket for him to play with quietly while other children nap. Everyone is friendly and helpful at drop off and pick up, and you can see that they enjoy the children. Ms. Charise is a fantastic teacher, he loves her, he is excited to go to school everyday, and talks about his day, as he didn't in the past. I appreciate the detailed daily notes, and the pictures and progress notes in the classroom, it helps me feel involved in his day. Thank you to Heidi and the Learning Adventure classes, not only for the great one on one attention, but the daily updates. I have coworkers who look forward to seeing our daily photos via email. Heidi makes these additional courses fun with a variety of tools, and it works, you can see the progress he is making almost on a daily basis. Thank you for all that you do!

  •  | I have two children, ages three years and four months, in the KinderCare Roseville center and I am very happy with the care they receive. They make it easier for me to be away from my children, as I know they are in good hands. The teachers show interest in my children and their development. The communication is excellent. I am constantly amazed at how much my three year-old has learned from them. She brings home new skills each day. My four-month-old gives his teacher a big smile each morning and is content in her arms when I leave. I am thankful I was able to find these wonderful people and this center. I would recommend them to anyone.
