Education and fun while learning is a key component at our school. We incorporate many events that the children are able to participate in, along with the rest of their family. We host an annual Harvest Party, invite the Tualatin Valley Firefighters to talk safety with the kids (coming up on December 7th) and even the Beaverton Police departments K-9 unit is coming on December 6th to meet with the children. Parents are always welcome to attend any school event. On December 13th Santa is coming to school and on winter break we will be doing lots of hands on holiday fun for the kids; not to mention fun field trips for our Kindergartener and School Age kiddos!
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Scholls Ferry Rd. KinderCare! Here at KinderCare we strive to exceed your expectations in an Early Learning Center. We are a school that is flexible with schedules and are always accommodating to meet the needs of you and your child. We provide programs that support and challenge children from the age of 6 weeks through the age of 12 years. We also offer unique enrichment programs that are fun and filled with learning. These programs range from cooking, phonics, math, reading, fitness, and more! Please feel free to schedule or stop by for a tour to check out our programs and meet our staff! We are open from 6:00am-6:30pm.
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.
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.

I currently have three children enrolled at the North Dakota KinderCare. I thing I love about the center is the teachers. My 20-month-old is loved, cared for and so attached to Ms. Marta, Ms. Kate and Ms. Khadra. My three-year-old is such a handful and yet Ms. Allison and Ms. Sarah are so patient and kind, it speaks volumes of the joy the children have in their classroom. Lastly, Ms. Sadaf in the School Age classroom is fantastic. My seven-year-old adores her. Ms. Sadaf always makes time to help with homework or to play a board game with the kids. Thank you to all the teachers for all you do for my kids.
