Dear KinderCare Families,

We’re all devastated by the destruction Hurricane Harvey continues to have on our families and teachers in Texas and along the Gulf. Our hearts go out to all of the children we care for every day in our center and we hope you and your family are safe. 

Although our center remains temporarily closed, we want to assure you we’ll reopen as soon as we can. 

We know our families have immediate needs to attend to. Since our center is closed, we won’t charge families tuition this week. If you’ve already made a payment for this week’s tuition, we’re going to credit your account for that amount and apply it toward your first week back in our center.

Thank you for your patience as we join the recovery effort. We’re working hard to get our center up and running again, and we’ll post new information here as it becomes available, so check this page daily for updates.

As always, you can contact our Customer Care Team at 888 525 2780 if you have any questions. If you’re a KinderCare Education employee with questions, please reach out to your manager.

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.

Our kids are taking off!

By kindergarten, our kids are testing ahead of their peers. Read all about it.


Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

The loving and devoted professionals at Oakhurst Drive KinderCare are passionate about teaching and caring for young children. Our program is nationally accredited, which means we have ensured that our teachers exceed state minimum standards for education level and ongoing professional development. Their lifelong love of learning is evident in their desire to stay abreast of new research and teaching techniques. Families meet with teachers three times per year to review their child's progress, which is documented in our developmentally appropriate assessments, portfolios, and anecdotal notes about daily achievements. We feel privileged to work alongside families to form supportive and cooperative partnerships.

It is important to Ms. Natasha to make sure families who attend her center recognize that learning and education don't have to wait until public school: Learning can start at any age!

  • Ms. Annette

    Ms. Annette, Program Specialist

    As the Program Specialist, Ms. Annette's goal is to prepare children socially, emotionally, and academically for Kindergarten. The teachers provide numerous opportunities for children to represent ideas through drawing and writing stories; inventing unique dance moves; using props to dramatize stories; and expressing independent thinking and expression through art and music. Ms. Annette and the teachers help children develop social skills through character-building activities to help identify emotions; have group discussions to practice sharing ideas, thoughts, and feelings; and provide opportunities to cooperate, negotiate, problem solve, and make independent choices. Ms. Annette encourages children to think through and solve problems by investigating, estimating, and testing solutions; builds daily outdoor activities into the schedule designed to get children thinking and moving; and gives children many choices to participate in activities that interest and challenge them. Ms. Annette looks forward to building a relationship with your family!

    It's incredible to teach children as they have fun learning through songs, activities, and dance.

Children in her classroom build alphabet recognition through play with letters and writing centers, and strengthen conversation skills with group sharing and reading experiences. Ms. Katrina supports cooperative play; uses whole- and small-group activities to model sharing, communication, and cooperation; and demonstrates how to recognize others' feelings and respond appropriately. She supports pretend play and role-playing with props and costumes; encourages creative expression through age-appropriate art materials; and stimulates imagination through storytelling and block-building.

September's Learning Focus

Children 6 weeks to 3 years old: Spaces and Places and All About Me
As infants and toddlers explore the spaces and places around them, children in Discovery Preschool will learn all about what makes people the same as well as what makes them different. Infants will experiment with moving toy cars around, build block towers and then knock them down, and even take a tour of the center to see what things are like outside of their classroom! Toddlers will get all revved up as they take a closer look at different vehicles and learn more about neighborhoods, communities, and the jobs that grownups have. In Discovery Preschool, children will be learning about themselves as they play games that strengthen their five senses, discuss feelings and emotions, practice self-help skills, and work on learning the names of body parts.

Children 4 to 5 years old: All About Me and My Home and Family
It’s the beginning of the school year—the perfect time to get to know each other better! Older children will be spending time sharing about themselves, their homes, and their families as they learn what makes people the same and what makes them different. Children will bring their own experiences to the drawing board as they create group stories and 3-D collages about families and homes, pantomime different home- and family-related activities, and draw self-portraits. With our curriculum’s project-related learning component, children in Transitional Kindergarten work together to decide on an individual or whole-group project related to the theme. Past projects have included creating a class book about emotions or working together to build a small-scale home, but who knows—the children may come up with a unique idea that’s entirely their own!

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

Our son suffers from a speech impediment and social behavior problems. As a result, daycares and school programs have always been hard on our family because he feared going to school and I feared picking him up due to receiving continuous bad reports regarding his behavior. However, Oakhurst Drive KinderCare has changed that! He and his sisters receive so much love. He now runs to his classroom with a smile. He is learning to do things like read and improve on his speech. He regularly tells me his colors, months, and days of the week! It has been such a blessing to have found this center. Thank you, Oakhurst Drive KinderCare!

- Mother

All the teachers are very nice and helpful! I know they truly care about my son. Every time I show up, they tell me cute stories about what my son did that day. Ms. Carla has such a great personality and is very welcoming to our family!

- Mother

My daughter is in the Prekindergarten program at KinderCare and she is learning so much more than she was at her last school.  Each day I pick her up from class, she is always excited to tell me about all the new things she has learned and can do. Best Pre-K program ever!
