Toddler Daycare and Early Education

Child Care for 1-2 year olds

KinderCare Early Foundations® Toddler Program

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations Toddler care program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our unique early childhood curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on experiences.

Each day is filled with fun activities that excite and help toddlers develop in ways that give them the comfort and confidence to grow and develop both cognitively and socially.

In addition to caring for your toddler, everything we do is designed for learning.

Your toddler's early education at KinderCare

Our five areas of focus give your child endless opportunities to learn and grow.

Communicating With Others
KinderCare encourages your toddler to interact with others.
We use storytelling and word games to help your child practice imitating and responding, asking questions, and following simple directions; provide practice naming familiar items; and support rich vocabulary development.

Building Brain Power
KinderCare helps your toddler begin to learn about the world.
We provide opportunities to identify basic colors and shapes; bring concepts of cause-and-effect to life through storytelling, music, and art; and model and encourage your child to practice sorting and matching.

Making New Friends
KinderCare supports your toddler in growing socially and emotionally.
We encourage interactions with other children in group activities; guide the development of sharing and listening skills; model how to express emotions appropriately; and guide your child to learn classroom routines.

Growing a Healthy Body
KinderCare provides ways for your toddler to gain increased body awareness.
We teach body parts through stories, song, and rhyme; promote self-care skills such as feeding, cleaning, and dressing; and support large-motor development and eye-hand coordination through a variety of activities such as kicking balls, tossing, writing, drawing, and lacing.

Nurturing Creativity
KinderCare helps your toddler develop individual talents.
We encourage pretending and role-playing through play with props; support individual expression through participation in group activities; and promote self-expression through art and music.
