AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
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.
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
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 Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)
KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It blends math, science, social studies, literacy, and mindfulness (think yoga!) for a uniquely KinderCare way of learning the foundations of music.
Phonics Adventures® (2 – 4 Years)
Learning how to read is a whole lot of fun at KinderCare! We help kids grow to love books and words (and get ready for kindergarten) in our Phonics Adventures program. From discovering the basics of vowels to practicing poetry, kids learn all about letters and sounds in small-group lessons made just for their age group. (Bonus: Kids who attend our phonics program are more prepared than their peers for school—and we have the data to prove it.)
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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.

“"So we're sitting around our dinner table, and our son starts counting...all the way up to 25. I looked at my husband - did you teach him that? He hadn't. I didn't either. But Centennial KinderCare did. It's amazing that he comes home every day having learned something new - and eager to share it with us. He's so happy there - and we're happy he's happy!"
Kate B. - KinderCare Parent
Looking for childcare was one of the most difficult decisions as a new parent in an area that has a lot of options. We interviewed and toured the majority of the offerings in the area and were continually drawn back to Centennial KinderCare. We felt the size of the facility and classrooms offered a better environment than some of the larger daycares that we visited. The curriculum is excellent and I have enjoyed watching my son develop and socialize. The staff and teachers are wonderful. They make an effort to know the children and parents (regardless of which class). We feel the center has made an investment in our child and family’s well-being. We could not be more confident in our decision for childcare.
Sara K. - KinderCare Parent
We continue to be grateful for our KinderCare family and all they do to make sure our son is learning, growing, and playing each and every day. His teachers adore him and the staff is always friendly!
Mary Beth R. - KinderCare Parent
Both of our children have had the pleasure of attending KinderCare over the past three years. The staff have always been very caring and are willing to go above and beyond to make sure your child is happy. We cannot say thank you enough to all of the wonderful staff at Centennial KinderCare!
Ann D. - KinderCare Parent
When we first became pregnant, I knew that I wanted to use a center for my daycare needs versus an in home care or any other option. I toured several other schools but knew that KinderCare Centennial was the perfect option for our family, due to the location, tuition rates and this particular center's accreditation. There are so many great things about this KinderCare location including; the teachers, administration, extra curricular activities offered and the educational curriculum. I feel very confident in the fact that my two boys are getting great care and attention in my absence every day.
Jennifer B. - KinderCare Parent
Our 17-month old has been at Centennial KinderCare since he was just 3 months old. He is our first child and we were extremely nervous about putting him in daycare while we went back to work. Since day one, the entire staff at KinderCare have been personable and caring. We often find ourselves thinking they give our child special treatment! We have comfort in knowing that our child is safe and well cared for and continue to be amazed by how much and how quickly he is learning and growing. We most certainly recommend Centennial KinderCare to any parent.
