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.
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.

It has been five years now since my grandchildren started attending this center. There were many places to choose from but without hesitation I can tell you that our interaction with Judy Dalka made all the difference in the decision for the children to be come enrolled in this KinderCare facility.FIve years is almost a lifetime to children who are six and seven now. The staff members are like family to these kids and they feel safe and secure and established here. While I respect what the KinderCare company represents in a daycare facility, at the end of the day it's all about the people who interact with the children that make the difference.I guess it was on the five year anniversary of their attendance that I really started to reflect about how these kids have grown up here and what an impact and a difference this center has made to them. It is no coincidence that Judy Dalka was there every step of the way.When we first started going to this center she was not in the Director position, but I couldn't have been happier at the time she was promoted. It was very well deserved. She is a shining example of what a daycare Director should represent. It's never a question that the children come first. She is hands on and very involved with each and every child at that center. I have personally been in customer relations for over 30 years so I can truly appreciate how she deals with issues that arise, some of which can be very sensitive for all parties. Judy deeply cares about these children and their experiences, and has been instrumental in providing an environment that is positive and nurturing to each and every child.Along the way we have changed residences and with Judy's help we have worked together to insure that these kids get to stay in this center. Consistency is so important for children and I would never want to upset what they have come to know and love.It seems that you always hear right away when things aren't right or people have complaints. I wanted to be sure that I was there to talk about when things are right and give proper credit to the people who are so devoted to making a difference in the lives of these children.Judy Dalka and her entire staff are wonderful and I would recommend this day care center to anyone who was in the need for their services.Thanks to the staff at KinderCare on Wise Road for making such a positive difference in our lives!
