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.

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

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.

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.

Our Families

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

  • My son, Garrett, started going to Cascade Park KinderCare when he was just under three months old. I was very nervous about leaving him anywhere but the time had come for me to go back to work. Over the past two years the relationship Garrett and I have developed with each and every one of the staff members is priceless! He is learning every single day about colors, numbers, shapes, sharing and playing well with others. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Cascade Park KinderCare to anyone that is looking for a GREAT place to take their child. I already have in fact.
    THANK YOU TO EVERYONE at KinderCare for teaching and loving Garrett.

  • I put my daughter Rachael, in Cascade Park Kindercare when she was one years old. This daycare is the only daycare she has every been to, and I wouldn't change that for anything in the world. She was a baby when she went in and now is a five-years-old who is about to start Kindergarten this upcoming school year.

    I have felt the love that the teachers and directors have for my child. Rachael literally was raise by most of the people in that daycare, which is a great feeling to know that there are people who care for your child's wellbeing. They helped mold her into the big girl she is today. They taught her what it means to share with other children, how to be kind to her friends, and to have compassion for the people around her. Also, they have helped show her what it means to just have fun and be a kid! Rachael went through every stage while being at Kindercare, like from not listening or taking naps to being the teacher's helper and being friends to the little toddler kids. No matter what phase she has had, the teachers were always right there communicating with me about how she was doing. Everyone would calm me down by explaining that her behavior was not my fault, but a normal stage for kids her age.

    Furthermore, it is always amazing when your child comes home talking about what they have learned that day. She has learned about the moon and planets, how to plant grass, and which animals are endangered. She has learned to sing the rainbow song, that has taught her to know the colors of the rainbow in Spanish.

    Kindercare has always been a part of my daughter's life for so many years, so it is such a bittersweet feeling knowing that she has grown up so much that she is will be saying good-bye to that part of her life this fall. I would recommend Cascade Park Kindercare to anyone who is looking for a home away from home for their children. These teachers will love them, teach them, laugh with them and grow with them, and that is a wonderful feeling to know your kids are safe when you are not with them. I just want to say thank you again for loving Rachael and helping her grow!

  • My son Griffin started going to the Cascade Park Kindercare when he was 3 months old. The teachers made his transition so easy. They truly care about each individual and their development. I'm blessed to have found a great place for my son to learn and grow. We LOVE each and every one of the teachers there.

    Thank for all your support with Griffins development!
