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.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

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.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

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.

Infant Sign Language

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.

Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!

Our Families

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

  • I would like to take this opportunity to share with you our wonderful experience with your center. As some of you know, we first started with KC in 2003, when the center was still very new. Our eldest at the time was 18 months old. The staff then was young and energetic. The director was excited about the new center and over the next four years our daughter continued to have very positive experiences. Skip ahead to 2010 when we enrolled our second child, Jamie. We chose KinderCare again because of our first experience and we couldn't be happier! You are all amazing and Jamie is very happy.

    Understanding that you all have chosen a very difficult field to be in, you all genuinely seem very happy to come to work each day! Suzy has done a fantastic job in building top-notch teaching staff who respect and, I believe, enjoy working under her and Melissa's guidance and leadership. You are smart, motivated, and enthusiastic. The diversity in age, education, experience and ethnicity (our daughters were adopted from China!) are, I believe, an enormous benefit to the children. The growth that has taken place over the past ten years has been magnificent! Suzy and Melissa, in their leadership, have brought so many great qualities to the center. Their enthusiasm is so contagious!! Both are consistently happy and pleasant and greet you with a smile every time. They have a very broad knowledge base and share it with their staff. I get the sincere sense that every teacher at KinderCare genuinely likes and respects Suzy and Melissa. On many occasions I have heard them say how great they are. Again, our children are the beneficiaries of all of this.

    We also love the way communication has improved at KinderCare. There is a clear and constant flow of information between the school and parents. I know the importance of communication with your child's caregivers and how it can be very comforting to parents. Morning drop off and evening pick ups can be very hectic times of the day so a newsletter, regular emails or a quick conversation in the office can be priceless and just what a parent needs.

    The genuine love and care that everyone at Kindercare gives the children is immeasurable. When you leave your child for the day in someone else's care, that decision can be very difficult. Everyone at KinderCare makes that decision a little bit easier! Thank you all for being so wonderful and for showing our children so much love and support!!!!

  • We've been at KinderCare for just four months but already feel like part of the family. Our son's teachers are so welcoming, caring and encouraging every day. For full-time working parents there is nothing better than knowing your child is not just safe but happy all day!

    Colleen - KinderCare Parent
  • We recently returned to KinderCare for my son. My daughter was there a few years back and we loved it. When it was time to find a center for my son I knew I wanted him at a KinderCare. We are so happy and my son is doing awesome! He transitioned so well and is thriving. It was great to see some of the same teachers there.
