Welcome to Kindercare, Torrance! Our center is in a quiet neighborhood, adjacent to a public park. It is a very child friendly, and safe area. We have five different classrooms: Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, Prekindergarten, and a Learning Adventures classroom.
Elvia Rodriguez, Center Director
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our teachers are a fun, loving group with a passion for children! They have a great understanding of the needs and expectations of the children in their classrooms. Most of our teachers have been with KinderCare for several years; making them very knowledgeable.

No matter what day you are having, everything is turned around with a smile or a hug from a child.
Isaura started working with the company as a Toddler teacher in Chattsworth, CA in 2007.

I enjoy teaching because I know that each day I’m able to teach the children many things daily.
I love being able to be apart of their life and knowing I’m a big Impact in their future
I love being able to see the new things they learn.
I love their innocence and all the questions they have. I love their willingness to learn.
I love knowing that you are inspiring, challenging, supporting the way the children are learning and gaining self-confident in the work they do.
I am inspired by the smiles on every child’s face and to know that every child looks upon me for everything. Also the satisfaction of teaching something new everyday.
I love supporting the children’s emotional development assisting them to be happy, comfortable and interested through play and challenging activities at school.
