We prepare your child for a lifetime of learning!

When your child joins us for their early education, you can feel confident that we’re going to make their experience as rich and rewarding as possible. Conducting annual assessments is one way we make sure we’re helping your child meet key academic, physical, language, and social-emotional milestones or make up for interrupted learning*. Plus, they give you and our teachers valuable insight into your child’s strengths and areas for growth. 

The short story is: Year after year, KinderCare kids of all ages, ethnicities, genders, and economic backgrounds make better-than-expected gains—even during a pandemic!

Even during a pandemic, your child will thrive here. 

During the pandemic, many kids lost time and fell behind in developing key skills. But this year’s assessments results show that the longer children were enrolled in KinderCare, the sooner they reached key developmental milestones.  

In fact, results from BRIGANCE® show that on average our students made seven months of progress over the course of only six months**. And, while children of all ages showed improvement after enrolling in KinderCare programs during the pandemic, infants and toddlers benefitted the most! 
 
Interrupted learning during the pandemic has caused the average U.S. student to fall 4-5 months BEHIND in math and reading. Here at KinderCare, kindergartners average nearly two months AHEAD of national expectations.

Classrooms that feel just like home 

A child’s world gets a little bigger every time they step—or crawl, or roll, or hop—into a KinderCare classroom. Here they can build a skyscraper, cook an imaginary feast, or heal a teddy bear’s runny nose. Everything in our classrooms is designed around their unique needs. 

• Safety first (and second, and third!) 
We know what it takes to keep children safe, so you can feel sound. It starts with paying attention to every detail—big and small. Every day at our center, you can be confident that your child is in the very best hands. 
 
• Helping children develop who they are 
Education is about more than knowledge. It’s about helping children develop the social and emotional skills they’ll use for the rest of their lives. Every KinderCare classroom is a mini-community where we help every child succeed on their own terms. 

• Teachers who become part of the family 
We hire teachers who care. They do more than teach—they nurture every child, paying attention to everyone’s unique needs. At KinderCare, your child will find teachers who believe in them, who give them the confidence to try new things and make new friends.
