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.

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.

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!

  • My daughter has learned so much with great help from Country Club KinderCare! She has attended KinderCare since she was six weeks old and is now two years of age. I have found each staff member to be so helpful, caring, and very interactive when it comes to my child and others. Since my daughter has been here, I find her just amazingly smart and advanced for her age. The curriculum KinderCare offers is just fabulous. My daughter comes home now sharing the many new things she is learning. I'm so pleased with my choice of learning centers.

    Alisha G. - KinderCare Parent
  • Both of my children have been attending KinderCare since they were each six weeks old. It has been a great experience for each of them. Now that my daughter is in school, I've begun getting feedback from her teachers about everything that she already knows and I know that she learned these things while attending KinderCare. My job has moved our family to different states, and we have been lucky enough that each time we have moved, we were able to transfer to another KinderCare without any problems.

    Lloyd L. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our daughter is as rough and tumble as they come--strong-willed, stubborn, and always "on-the-go." The Country Club KinderCare she attends has been exceptional. All of the staff have shown such love and care for her. She has learned more in the time she's been there than we ever could have imagined. Accidents will happen, as it did on June 3rd, but she received the best attention and care from the staff at the time of the incident. By the time I got there, she was smiling through her swollen lips. I can't thank them enough for everything they did for her that day and have done every day to develop my beautiful little girl. Knowing my daughter is safe and well cared for at KinderCare is all we need.

    Leigh H. - KinderCare Parent
  • My child has been attending KinderCare since she was a year old. Over the years, I have enjoyed seeing the center grow and change with the new quality teachers, and the great leadership that is going on in the center now. My daughter learns something new every day and I love hearing her talk about her friends and teachers at school. I know she is going to be more than ready for kindergarten due to the help from everyone at Country Club KinderCare. Thank you for all you do!

    Mandy R. - KinderCare Parent
  • My kids thoroughly enjoy going to phonics throughout the week. It has helped them grow and thrive in the classroom. As a teacher, I can see the difference it is making in all aspects of their learning.

    Emily - KinderCare Parent
  • The first day we started, Michelle opened her arms to our entire family, constantly keeping us in the loop.  Her ability to communicate not only with children, but with parents, is a wonderful asset to have in the infant room!  She has been a blessing through some of Otto's health issues, and always listens and offers suggestions.  She greets us with a smile and a hug in the mornings, always happy to see Otto, and we are going to miss the joy she brings to our lives!  She has felt like an extension of family in taking care of Otto in his first year, and we couldn't have asked for better!  Because of Michelle, we felt comfortable leaving our Otto in someone else's care for 8 hours/day.  We will miss her as Otto's primary care teacher!

    Lainey is the reason we chose KinderCare for Otto.  On our tour, she took time out of her busy day to show us around the infant room.  She is always so calm and loving.  She has been extremely helpful when we've asked questions about sleep, scheduling, and feeding.  She also asks the right questions of us to get the most information before offering suggestions.  It shows that she has been around infants for several years, because Lainey is a book of knowledge!  KinderCare is so lucky to have her!

    Otto loves his Brittany!  She brings fun and laughs to the classroom, constantly having dance parties with Otto and giving high-fives.  Otto likes upbeat, and Brittany is just that.  She's a great communicator and always has Otto's best interest in mind.  She is so willing to step in when needed, and we appreciate her for that! Otto's smiles are the biggest for Brittany!

    We felt so much better about leaving Otto at KinderCare later into the evening when Alivia was in his classroom.  It is clear that she loves children, and always makes sure Otto is in her line of sight.  She gives great updates at the end of the day and is so loving to all of the kids.  She finds great joy in little things, which is the perfect person to have when celebrating so many milestones.

  • The Learning Adventures program has been a great opportunity for my child to get a jump start on the reading and math skills they will need as they go to school.
