We’re more than educators. We help families build confidence for life. Our programs give children a foundation they can build on. Wherever they go after they leave KinderCare, they’ll be ready to think bigger, feel stronger, and aim higher.
Recent results from the BRIGANCE® and TerraNova® national assessments show the power of our programs: The longer children stay with us, the better they’ll do! KinderCare kids are more prepared for first grade than expected for their grade level and meet key developmental milestones sooner.
By the time they’re 2 years old, children who’ve been in KinderCare programs since they were babies reach those milestones an average of six weeks ahead of expectations*. At 5, KinderCare kids are almost nine months ahead. Children who attend our preschool programs before starting kindergarten consistently test months ahead of expectations before they even start first grade.
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 them 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.
