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.

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.

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!

  • Picking a childcare center was a hard decision. I toured countless facilities with none of them feeling right. When I came to KinderCare in Westlake I found a very child friendly environment and outgoing staff. I chose KinderCare for their ratio, environment and accreditation status. I have found so much more here though. They care for my daughter as if she is one of their own. They even cuddle with her when she is having a rough day. They are very sensitive to her personal needs. I know I chose the right school because my daughter has become a happy, outgoing, independent little one who lights up when she sees her teachers and friends!

    Trish M. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our daughter really loves being Westlake KinderCare. She always gets a big grin when we pull up to the front door, and she's squirming to get out of her car seat when she sees the door to her room. Everyone is so great! We are thankful every day to have such a wonderful place to help take care of our daughter!

    Chris P. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our family has been a part of the Westlake KinderCare for almost eight years, starting with our first child, when she was three months old.  Both of our children have attended since they were infants, up until their graduation to start Kindergarten.  The amount of time our family has invested, and trusted, to the staff of KinderCare speaks for itself, in terms of caring for our children.  From infancy up through Pre-K the children are learning at their developmental levels; they are actively engaged and stimulated!  We always loved that about the center; that no matter the age of a child, there is a curriculum in place to engage them and help them grow.  It was apparent that our daughter was more prepared for Kindergarten than her peers, due to what she learned in her Pre-K class, and we are confident that our son will be just as prepared, when he begins Kindergarten this Fall.Our children formed close bonds with their teacher, and, as a working parent, this helped having to be away from them during the day.  The staff communicates well and are willing to work, as a team with parents, as new developmental stages bring new challenges!   We are happy with the way our children have grown and learned so much, as our last child now moves on to the next journey of elementary school!

  • We had the pleasure of sending our son here for 3.5 years. We moved recently away from Westlake and already miss it. Our son was treated like a king with loving teachers that really knew him and made sure he was taken care of emotionally and cognitively. Each day we were given a summary of what occurred during his day, what he learned, what and how he ate, how he slept, and also a personal note - for example something he really enjoyed doing that day, building a train, drawing a volcano, etc. I loved reading them! The teachers really focused on his strengths and what he did well, provided detailed examples of how he was progressing, and at the same time, were not afraid to tell us if he did something not in line with expectations on a certain day. The center directors really value security here, are friendly, and go out of their way to say hello and bye each day. They also had an occasional "parent's night out" option for daycare and did "playdates" where kids could meet outside the center at, for example a park, on a weekend. Thank you KinderCare Westlake!

  • KinderCare Westlake has been our children's home away from home since they were infants. The teacher's have nurtured our children, encouraged them to explore and fostered their love of learning. We love the variety that KinderCare offers from phonics and reading to cooking and music; each day is a new adventure for our kids. KinderCare has been a very special place for us over the last 6 years and always will be. Our children will continue to benefit from their KinderCare experience as the enter their life's next chapter.
