AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
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.
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.
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My two children have been attending the Tyler KinderCare for one year and have only had positive experiences. The staff is very friendly, well-trained, and have always made us feel like family. The Director is always on-site and is readily available to answer any questions or concerns. There is not a high employee turnover rate here. It is comforting to me knowing that my girls will continue to have the same teachers each day. My favorite aspect about Kinder Care is that it is an open facility, so you can see what’s going on inside instead of having the children behind closed doors.
I am really impressed with their curriculum. My oldest daughter is five and will be starting kindergarten this fall. She has already learned to read and write up to 50 sight words, which I believe gives her a great advantage. KinderCare offers an excellent phonics program, which includes games and take-home activities. They also have a great supervised cooking class that teaches the children how to follow simple recipes, such as smoothies and desserts.
They have many extracurricular activities for the children. During the summer, the kids get to go on field trips to places such as The Discovery Science Place and Caldwell Zoo. The kids also get to swim two times per week. Hands down, this is the best daycare in Tyler and my family is blessed to be part of it!

The Tyler KinderCare has been a part of my family for the past four and a half years. I love the whole staff. They are so caring and you can feel the love as soon as you walk in. Ms. Tina, the Director, is so kind-hearted and dedicated to each and every child who attends. I feel like each and every one of the staff are extended family members who truly love my children alike. When I drop my children off every morning, it's kind of like I'm dropping them off at their grandma's house. The improvement in my children's learning has really gotten better. The staff really goes above and beyond. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants so much more out of a daycare. They are awesome!
