Assessments keep your early learner on the path to success.
The moment your child arrives in our classrooms, it’s time to thrive! Everything they’ll do—from outdoor time to reading time to snack time—reflects our research-based, proprietary curriculum that builds a strong foundation for kindergarten readiness and beyond.
Because we take your child’s educational journey seriously, we use assessments to observe and measure their progress, making sure we’re giving them exactly what they need. Year after year, families see the power of our programs.
Here’s what assessment results showed this year. *
“These results illustrate the tangible benefits families see when they join us. High-quality early education like ours gives children the opportunity to learn and grow with support and guidance. As we look ahead to a new school year, we’re giving families the confidence that their children are well-prepared for school and later life.” — Dr. Marquita Davis, KinderCare’s Chief Academic Officer
How assessments directly impact your child’s future success.
We use assessment tools including BRIGANCE®, TerraNova®, and Ages & Stages Questionnaires® to observe your child’s progress and celebrate their milestones with you. These assessments help us look at all kinds of skills—including language and math, physical development, independence, and emotional expression . Plus, they help our teachers figure out where kids shine and where they might need a little (or big) boost.
And what we see is encouraging! Our students continue to excel in the classroom and in their social relationships. This is great news for their noggins and their educational foundation.
“My daughter’s kindergarten teacher is so impressed with how well she’s transitioning to elementary school after five years at KinderCare. She says Marianna has impressive academic skills and is making friends easily. This made us feel great about our choice to send her to KinderCare from the start!” — Jamie, KinderCare parent
Your child deserves a high-quality education. Assessments make sure we’re meeting the mark.
It’s easy to claim quality, but we prefer to prove it. And that’s where our assessments come in—they’re one way of keeping your early learner’s progress on track.
Here are even more ways quality shows up in our programs:
