Our school is a second home for the wonderful families that have joined us at the Winfield KinderCare. We are a curriculum based school with highly trained educators that dedicate their time to teach all of the children the skills they need to develop and grow! Through daily play and activities our children get the individualized and group care that helps them both academically and socially. This year we have introduced a brand new Preschool and Prekindergarten curriculum that incorporates Spanish into the classroom! We work on skills that all children need, starting with our infants all the way up to our school aged children! Come visit our home to see what wonderful experiences your child can have with us!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Twelve fun and unique weeks of camp, all summer long! From May through August, KinderCare offers awesome camps for pre-school, pre-k, and school-age kids. It's a great place to bring friends, and to meet new ones! We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours, so join us for all 12 weeks or as many weeks as you like.
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.
Join us for a summer of fun! We will be having a summer full of adventure and fun! We have field trips every week, some in the center for our Infants through Discovery Preschool and some out of the center trips for our Preschool through School Age classrooms! The children receive a t-shirt and water bottle!
Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education.

When asked to describe my experience with the Winfield KinderCare, I can’t help but smile! We’ve been a part of this “family” for almost two school years now. Having come from a home daycare, we were hoping for teachers who would love on our kids, while at the same time teach from a solid curriculum. What we experienced at our KinderCare ended up being so much more than we hoped. Our two kids have been through the Infant room all the way up now to the Private Kindergarten room—and it’s clear that the transition each step of the way has been natural due to the fact that this KinderCare is a tight-knit team. It’s obvious that Michelle has very high expectations that the teachers strive to achieve—all the while caring for kids in a tender and personal way. All of the teachers know all of the kids—they greet them, engage with them, and are quick to help the kids feel comfortable and connected. It has amazed me how much my kids LOVE their teachers—and not only their “lead teachers”, but all of the teachers they encounter in one day. They come home talking about their day and what they learned—and the following day the teachers follow that up with asking my kids how they are doing and what they did at home or over the weekend. It truly is a family here at this center—when staffing positions change, the kids, parents, and teachers alike mourn. Michelle works very hard to bring in the best lead teachers. The transition is often seamless as the whole center works as a team to care for the kids and parents alike—all with one’s own unique needs—yet maintaining a sense of professionalism and fairness. I cannot state enough how much I value the curriculum and the teaching methods that are practiced. My kids have learned invaluable skills, both academic and social! I have never thought twice about our decision to send our kids to this center. Our kids love their teachers, their friends, and all that this center pours into their lives.
