We love our KinderCare! Five years ago, my husband and I set out in search of a place to provide the best possible care we could find for our four year old son. At KinderCare we found separate classrooms, in a class-like setting and an atmosphere supportive of choice for brain growth Since our first son's attendance, we have had a second son. He looks forward to "going to school" and rushes to get ready every morning. He tells us about "his job", letters or numbers, the month or the day, his day, and what fun things his friends and teachers have done. It's a highlight of our day to see him smile, just as it was for our oldest child. Our oldest continues to excel in school. He is now in the 4th grade, participating in sports and challenge classes every year. His test scores are at the top of his class and best of all, he is a well-rounded child that's happy, polite and kind. As I have told his teachers, because of KinderCare and the basis of what they provided in the early years. - Andrea and Gabe, Parents
