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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

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.

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

I've wanted to let the staff at Vienna KinderCare know, for many years now, how much I enjoyed being at their center between 1995 when I started at age 3, to 2001 when I left there at age 9 to move to Canada. I fondly remember Ms. Sharon, and if there are other teachers that were there during that time that are still there today (Ms. Mary, Ms. Rosa to name two I remember well). I want you to know that I am now twenty one, and in college, having graduated from high school in 2011. While I was only at KinderCare on school breaks once I started elementary school, I benefited a lot from their care, and loved their large supply of toys and music tapes. (Now I guess the tapes are CD's!) I am totally blind, and enjoyed playing with the toys that made noise the most and listening to the different story and music tapes the center had back then. Today I am still an avid music lover of all kinds of music, and I credit KinderCare for playing a part in that. I still remember some of the children from when I was there and the experiences I had with them, and now, I know that most of those children are either in the latter years of elementary school, in middle school, high school or college, just like me. How time flies.
Keep up your great work. Say hello to the veteran teachers that are still there that taught when I was attending. Let them know I fondly remember them and thank them for the kindness they showed me during my time there.

- Former Student

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you've done to help [our daughter] improve her ability to relate and play with kids her age. She's gone from the various comments of her inability to talk at school and relate to other kids to being able to play with kids her age with less prompting by an adult. It's truly a tribute to both her and the efforts of your team at Vienna location, including the Center Director, Snigdha Ravy, and the teachers, Ms. Larisa, Ms. Hengameh and Ms. Sharon, all of whom never stopped helping her. You've helped build the foundation for her improved academic achievement, focus and social interactions. The impact of your help is so significant and will help her for the rest of her life. I truly can't thank you enough and will be forever grateful.

- Father

I also wanted to say that we are very pleased with your daycare, the staff, and everything about the daycare. [Our baby] is always smiling when we drop him off, and still smiling when we pick him up. This speaks volumes about your caring staff, in that he feels very comfortable at daycare.

- Father

We truly appreciate your entire staff at the Infant Classroom who has taken great care of [our daughter]. Thank you, Snigdha, for ensuring our daughter has great care at Vienna Kindercare!

- Parent

We had a great experience at your center and I can tell [my child] began to get more comfortable every week, and loves the teachers and his friends. Snigdha is a wonderful Center Director and we felt very welcome at Vienna KinderCare. I will definitely recommend your center to people looking for daycare in the future.
