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.

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


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.

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.

Teachers & Staff

Our Staff at KinderCare Forest Crossing is truly one of a kind. We have a highly tenured staff. We work as a team and put that extra foot forward to ensure the best education for the children. Our staff is one big happy family; we like to laugh and are very supportive of each other.

    I think it is important to help children at an early age learn positive self esteem, by letting them be their own individual person. We have family style dining so the children get to serve themselves lunch at the table. The curriculum we use is a hands on interaction to develop their mind.

Health and Safety

Our top priority at KinderCare is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our children, families, and staff. We do this through rigorous training and constant assessment and evaluation of proper policies and procedures. Your child’s security begins at the front door, literally. We have a locked security entrance that requires a numeric code to enter. All side doors are kept locked to ensure the security of the exterior of the building. All guests are emergency pick up people are identified and escorted through the building. Of course, our teachers have all cleared local, state, and federal background checks, including fingerprinting. We are trained in infant and child CPR and First Aid. We do routine fire, storm, and lock-down drills to prepare for the unexpected. Throughout the day, your child will be supervised at all times. No child is ever left unattended, even for a minute. Teachers have all been trained in supervision, discipline and guidance, and developmentally appropriate practices to ensure they understand the risks associated with the children in their care. If your child has food allergies or specific medical conditions, we will work with you to ensure your child’s well being while in our care. We also take the responsibility of your child’s emotional security very seriously. We want every child to feel safe, loved, and respected while at KinderCare.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

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

My children have been attending KinderCare Forest Crossing for over 3 years. We love all of our teachers! My daughter is in 1st grade and constantly surprising her teachers will how well she does in school. My son is 3 and was recently able to pass a kindergarten entrance test. I attribute my children's success to KinderCare! They are so great with their students and teach them in a loving environment. Jenn and Winna are wonderful at what they do. I highly recommend KinderCare to anyone looking for a home away from home for their children!


- Mother

My girls (ages 3 and 5) love Kindercare! They look forward to going to school and are always happy when I pick them up at the end of the day. The staff is warm and caring. We appreciate how flexible they are with our unpredictable schedule.


- Mother

We made a big move to a new home, new town and new state and wanted to be sure that our children had a safe, loving and enriching place to call their new school. We found that place when we came to KinderCare. After visiting a couple of other schools in the area, we felt like the schools were all fairly similar, offering their own perks and benefits, but we left each one feeling like something was missing. When we visited KinderCare, we felt an overwhelming sense of welcome and immediately noticed the attention and focus that the teachers and staff gave them- we knew that this would be our boys’ new school. With KinderCare, we know that the boys are getting the love and attention that they need to feel secure while they learn, play and grow and that means the world to our family.


- Mother

Kindercare has been like family since our daughter started attending in 2013. We relocated to Texas from Virginia because of a job opportunity. Up until that point our daughter was being cared for by my grandmother; so this was an extremely huge adjustment for her. Our daughter moved with us from our entire family and everything she knew. The staff at Kindercare showed our family such care and concern; and helped make this adjustment possible. They took our daughter in and treated her as if she was one of their own children. My daughter was so shy when she first started going and now you can't get her to leave for the day. She loves it there and I know this is because of how well they treat her and the rest of the children. I love the staff at Kindercare; without them we would not have made this adjustment. I can't thank them enough for their love and support.



- Parents

This center loves my kids as if they were their own.

- Father
The teachers genuinely love the children. They individualize their approach when teaching knowing not all kids learn at the same pace or in the same way.
- Mother

My children have been part of the KinderCare family for more than 10 years.  My daughter was in Phonics with Ms. LuLu when she was 4 years old.  She was reading before she even started kindergarten.  My son is now in pre-k with Ms. Donita – he LOVES it!  His favorite thing he has learned is counting by 5s!  He is more than ready to start kindergarten!   


- Mother

We have been using the services at Kindercare Forest Crossing Center for 7 years and it has been a wonderful experience. My child has been through great times and the staff has always been willing to work with me. His teachers qlways bring his accomplishments and triumphs to my attention. I have used them for full time daycare services, summers, before and after school. My child has fun, learns a lot and engages his imagination on a daily basis. The schools extra classes add more to our experience. He comes home from cooking class ready to cook dinner for the family and from Spanish class ready to speak to me in Spanish as much as he can. Kindercare has been our partner and makes sure that my child knows he is very special.


- Mother

The faculty and staff at Kinder Care are invested in the children under their supervision. My daughter feels like an essential part of the whole and is always treated with dignity and respect. We enjoy a wonderful relationship with the staff and teachers and are looking forward to more great things to come.


- Mother

KinderCare is a home away from home for my two daughters. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming and truly care about the well-being of not only my children, but all the children they care for. The center's summer program offers fun on-site and off-site field trips that my daughters enjoy. They are always excited to go to KinderCare and see their friends and teachers.
