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.

Spanish

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. Qué pasa?

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.

Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!

Our Families

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

  • I was nervous about sending my children to a child development center; I always felt they would be so impersonal. But General Booth KinderCare proved me wrong. From the first day my children Alana, 5 and Alyssa, 2 started attending about a year and a half ago the staff members have always made my children feel as if the center is a home away from home, always going above and beyond to make sure my children and all the children there are well taken care of and happy. My family and I view the staff members as extension of our family and I am excited for our newest addition to meet them, and I know she will be well cared for!

  • My experience with KinderCare on General Booth Blvd. has been refreshingly pleasant compared to other preschool and day care centers in this area, and I have experienced several of them.  The center is always clean and organized.  The teachers and center director communicate effectively and promptly to the families as a whole and individually about my son.  My child comes home excited about his day at school and is able to tell us all that he has learned.  I am very pleased with his education, structure, and the care that they have provided my child with.  I have watched him grow tremendously at this center!

    Lisa - KinderCare Parent
  • We started taking our first child to Kindercare on General Booth in 2009. Since then, we have had the pleasure of watching her grow from a baby into a smart and wonderful young girl. When she started elementary school this year, she was further along on the learning curve than a lot of the other children. That was due hugely in part to the great teachers at Kindercare.

    We were blessed in having a second child in 2013. He started attending Kindercare the same year and we can say that he is receiving the same care and attention that our first child received. Seeing his day to day development has been nothing but astonishing.

    Kindercare always provides a safe and loving environment that kids can learn and flourish in. Tiffany, the center director, has always been willing to answer any questions and address any concerns that may come up.

    Back in 2009, all we were looking for was a daycare facility that was close to work and reasonably priced. What we found was so much more. They are not just a daycare, but a school with a great learning environment. We have built a great rapport with everyone at the center and consider them part of our extended  family. It is so wonderful to see just how much the staff truly loves and cares for our children. The decision to go with Kindercare was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

    Amy & Vernon - KinderCare Parent
  • When you walk into the classroom and hear laughter, nothing is more comforting. Leah started KinderCare at 4 months old. She is now 4 years old. From the exceptional educational curriculum to the caring teachers, I wouldn't have her anywhere else. It's a great feeling to know that when I drop my child off at school, she is excited about her day. I look forward to hearing about all the new things that she learned. KinderCare is a part of our family!

    Dawn - KinderCare Parent
  • I have been taking my son to Kindercare for over two years now and we love everything about it! First and foremost, the director, Tiffany, is absolutely wonderful! She deeply cares about all of the students and the families and goes above and beyond to help in any way she can. Secondly, the teachers are amazing! Most of the teachers have been there since my son first enrolled and have been able to see him develop and grow through the years. My son is currently in the three year old classroom and his teacher takes her job very seriously. She really takes time and effort to make sure all of her students are learning and having fun at the same time. It's very reassuring and comforting knowing I am leaving my child in great hands each day. We feel privileged to be a part of the Kindercare family!
