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.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

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

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.

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.

Art Experience and Science

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!

  • I can't believe the time has come to give notice that Mia will be moving on to her new school. Her last day will be September 3rd. Regardless of knowing that it was coming, and having had the graduation ceremony, I'm surprised by how much I feel unprepared to leave the KinderCare family. Mia has been in your program since she was 12 weeks old, and this time has been so amazing for both she and us. At KinderCare, with each step we had partners in the teachers where information specific to Mia and her growth was shared and addressed. Her emotional, physical and educational needs were always a shared priority and this gave me such piece of mind. I knew that Mia was seen as an individual and had compassionate, knowledgeable caregivers. From first smile, overcoming separation anxiety (hers as well as mine), learning music, potty training, how to be a kind friend, how to color with a crayon, then writing letters as well as reading.... The lessons and love Mia has received at KinderCare are too numerous to express, and she has thrived under your care. For that, I cannot feel more grateful. You have many shining stars, but we were especially touched by Miss Darby, Miss Melissa, Miss Jen Jen, Mia Jenn and, of course Miss Sarah. These teachers made such an impact on us, they will never be forgotten. With all our love. -R

  • We've only been with Kindercare Wakefield for 7 months, but I couldn't feel more at home. No matter which teacher or staff member is in the lobby area when I arrive, I'm greeted by name and often times with a cute story regarding my child from that day. The teachers and staff are incredible! You can really tell that they love their jobs, and they genuinely love the children. They all work so hard to provide a colorful, fun, educational and safe environment. You would expect your child's teachers to really know your child, but I was amazed at how quickly other teachers got to know my child as well. Since graduating from Infants to Toddlers, I often times have to stop back in the Infants room so that my daughter can hug her old Infant-room teachers. Just goes to show what a bond they create in short time. I really can't say enough about this center. I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience so far!

  • I can't say enough great things about our Kindercare family.  My daughter Anna is almost 4 years old and has been with Kindercare Wakefield since 18 months.  The past two years have been such an amazing learning experience for Anna.  I've seen her grow and learn so much with her friends and teachers.  Anna has taken Music, Phonics and Science, and she loved all three.  I cannot believe she can write her name and identify letters of the alphabet so easily now.  My seven month old is also at Kindercare in the infant room.  The infant room teachers are so caring and attentive, and do a fantastic job of making sure all babies are very well taken care of.  The Center Director and Assistant Director ensure everything runs smoothly, and they both have a warm, welcome and open demeanor.  I have never had a problem communicating any special instructions or concerns to the directors or teachers.  Overall we are extremely happy with Wakefield Kindercare.  It is such a comfort going to work and knowing my children are getting the best care available.
