Exclusive to KinderCare ~ New Transitional Kindergarten program to enhance your child’s VPK experience ~
Transitional Kindergarten is an enhanced learning program that offers more challenging activities than our traditional VPK “Wrap” program.  Children will experience project-related learning and extended whole group activities. This is in addition to the language, social, physical and cognitive learning we provide to get them ready for Kindergarten!

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.

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

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.

Spanish

Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo. Qué pasa?

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!

  • My husband and I are thrilled with our experience at KinderCare Learning Center! This is NOT a daycare facility at all, but a learning center! Our daughter has been going full time since she was a one year old, and within the first week of her attendance, we saw an immense improvement in not only our daughters social skills, but she stopped using a bottle and transitioned to a sippy cup (which was a battle for us at home). She comes home daily with a progress report and tracking that outlines not only how long she slept, what she ate, but the activities and projects they worked on! The teachers genuinely care for each child and love them as if they are their own. As a parent who works full time, this was an important quality I was looking for and we found it here at KinderCare! The menu items for daily school lunches are healthy and thoughtfully planned out. The school has several fun activities throughout the year - everything from Santa Claus coming to take pictures with the kids at Christmas, to a Winter Gala where the kids sing songs (even at the young age of two), and there is a focus on support for months such as Autism Awareness Month and the kids wear blue in honor. My husband and I find this facility, the teachers and staff to be exceptional, and as a 'picky parent' I would highly recommend this facility to you!

  • We have been a part of this center for two and a half years and we love it. The teachers are very caring and attentive to the needs of the children. My daughter was having some difficulties in school. I enrolled her in the phonics program with Ms. Crystal and within two weeks her teacher noticed a significant change in her reading. I think that enrolling her in this program was the best thing I could do. Ms. Crystal recognized the areas my daughter was struggling in and explained to me how she could help her through this program. I am very happy that I found a center where the teachers think more of their profession then it just being a job. Ms. Crystal really cares about the children and their growth. Also I am very happy about the changes to this center. I as a parent appreciate management thinking of the parents and having breakfast on the go. This shows me that they appreciate us and consider us not only clients but a family. In addition, the movie night on Friday was such a great idea. My daughter said that was the best movie night ever. Keep up the good work and congratulations to Ms. Shannon and Ms. Christy on their new positions.

  • I’ve never met a more caring, compassionate group of people as the people who work at the Winter Springs Kinder Care center.  The attitudes of all the teachers and directors are so positive and loving.  Each and every day, they deal with many children and many different types of personalities and treat them with patience and kindness.  Whenever you walk into the center you and especially your children, are greeted kindly and made to feel truly welcome.

    No matter in what age group your child belongs, the Winter Springs center has a curriculum that helps children be successful and excel at what they do best.  The center provides many hands on activities for children and additional learning programs that aid in a child’s development.  My two children have attended KinderCare since they were infants and I have seen such amazing growth in both of them.  My two year old son has developed an extensive vocabulary, social skills, and manners.  The teachers in my one year old daughter’s infant room have worked diligently to help her crawl, eat on her own, and develop the skills that she needs.  I genuinely don’t think my two children would be where they are at if it wasn’t for the Winter Springs KinderCare center.
    There has never been a day that I have dropped off my children that I have worried if they were getting the proper care or attention.  I KNOW they are getting the best in child care.  The teachers and directors are never too busy to talk about your child individually or answer questions you may have. 

    I highly recommend this center to any parent who is considering child care for their children.   Thank you for all that you do and for who you are.
