Thank you for your interest in our center. We know that choosing the right environment for your family is very important. Our school is proud to serve the communities of Woodridge, Downers Grove, Darien, and other surrounding areas. As a center we support cooperative play; use whole and small group activities to model sharing, communication and cooperation. Our Preschool and Prekindergarten programs prepare children to reason and analyze by using their senses to explore materials, create opportunities to ask and answer open ended questions, experiment with spatial relationships, problem solve and make independent choices. Our goal is to do all we can to help children learn and succeed. We would love to share our Nationally Accredited center with you. Please stop by anytime!

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. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

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.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program


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.


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.


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 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.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

My children and I have had nothing but great experiences with this center. The directors and teachers have been always extremely welcoming and helpful throughout the time we've been here. My children never fail to come home happy and excited to tell me about their day and what they've learned. I know I have made the right decision when enrolling my children here and I am very pleased with the amount of dedication from the teachers.

- Preschool and Kindergarten Mother

Since our daughter Helena enrolled in the phonics program, we have seen great progress on recognizing letters, sounds and words as well as a much improved handwriting. Her vocabulary and full sentences speaking has greatly improved too.

Ms. Lindsay keeps us informed on the topics and themes that they work on, and she gives us feedback on how Helena is doing, and what we can work on while at home.

Setting time aside every week definitely helps, especially for us that speak two languages and need some more focused practicing. I definitely recommend Kindercare's Phonics Program!

- PreKindergarten Father
We started going to Kindercare three years ago when my oldest daughter was about six months old. I had always imagined that I would be a stay at home mom and really struggled with taking her anywhere. From day one, her teachers took great care of her and put my mind at ease. They love their students and truly try to give them the best experience every day. My daughter comes home with so much to tell me about the activities they did and things she learned.
With our second child it was so much easier to go back to work. I knew I had a safe place for her to go with people that would love her and take great care of her. There's obviously nothing like being at home with your kids, but when you do have to go back to work this Kindercare center is a wonderful place full of friends for them to play with and teachers to help them learn. I am confident my daughters will be prepared for school when it is time, and in the meantime they're having a great time learning and growing at Kindercare.
- Discovery Preschool Mother
The day I dropped my 2 year old daughter off for the first time I think we were both going through withdrawals. The teacher held my daughter as she cried just as I would have. In the middle of the day, I received an email from the teacher giving me an update on how Neena's first day was going and sent me a picture of her in class. That really eased my mind and helped me realize I had made the best decision for my daughter.
Neena was very shy when she started and hardly spoke to anyone. She had a limited vocabulary but 7 months later, she is an extrovert and now she can't stop talking! Every day she comes home with something new that she's learned. She's always talking about her friends from class and what fun activities she did with Ms. Lindsay.
The entire staff is extremely supportive, professional and sincerely have your child's best interest at heart. I love getting daily reports that tells me what she ate, how she slept and what she learned for the day. It also includes Neena's most fun part of the day. It's always so nice to see all the pictures hanging up in the classroom of the kids taken during their learning adventures.
I know that when I leave my daughter with the KC staff she's in good hands. They treat all the kids as though they were their own. We are so thankful for each and every Kinder Care Teacher. They say it takes a village to raise a child and they make me feel like we're all one big happy family!
Thank you Kinder Care,
