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.
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.
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 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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I just want to say that I absolutely love the staff at this daycare. I always know my girls are in good hands. All of the staff love my girls and will help to transition them by holding and loving on them to help make my departure easier for all. The girls always have a wonderful time and have lots of great stories to share. The staff print pictures of the girls learning, playing, and interacting for us to cherish at home. I have never had a daycare do that for them before. My girls have been going there for over a year and they are always there for us, even spur of the moment when the girls are out for a break. It takes us a long time to leave every day, because my three-year-old has to stop to say good-bye to all the teachers, not just hers! We love the Director, Emily, and the Co-Director, Carol. Rowlett KinderCare is an absolutely wonderful school where you can have peace knowing your kids will be taken care of, loved, inspired, grown, and protected.
Renee - KinderCare Parent
I just wanted to thank the Rowlett KinderCare staff for taking such great care of my grandson. He spent the summer with us, so we decided to enroll him in their summer camp program. We were pretty nervous about sending him to summer camp in lieu of keeping him home with us, but he came home every day sharing stories of science experiments with his favorite teacher, Ms. Anne. Splash days with his new friends gave him a huge smile on his face. That smile and excitement validated our decision to entrust this group of amazing teachers and staff with our grandson.
Gail - KinderCare Parent
My daughter goes to the Rowlett KinderCare in the School Age program. Every morning when she gets up, she is excited about going to school. The teachers and staff are great! They are super friendly and very caring, so I know that my daughter is in good hands. She has attended a couple of other daycares, but this center is by far the best!
Emily - KinderCare Parent
It is very hard to leave your little one with strangers when it’s time to go back to work. Finding the perfect daycare can feel like a never-ending task. I was definitely relieved when I came to the Rowlett KinderCare, and I was made to feel comfortable and secure with the atmosphere and the staff. My five-month-old is my world and they all made me feel like I was leaving him with people that cared for him as much as I do. That was very important to me. The programs that are in place make me happy to know that my little one will have the opportunity to learn and develop. I just want to say thank you for showering my “Happy Baby” with so much love and easing my worries as a new mom. I will be recommending this KinderCare to some families I know, and appreciate the caring family environment that you have to share.
