A Dose of Hope: Vaccination Information for Your Family

KinderCare’s plan for vaccinating teachers and staff 

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of your family and our staff. We know that you and thousands of families across the nation depend on our care to confidently return to work. So we owe it to you and your communities to do what’s right.

vaccineOne way we create safer environments for everyone is by making it as easy as possible for our employees to receive vaccinations. That’s why we’re giving teachers and staff in our centers paid time off to get the vaccine—and ensuring it’s free for them to do so.

At both state and national levels, we continue to advocate for our centers' staff to be prioritized as essential workers in the vaccine rollout. In addition to our industry-leading health and safety practices that have been in place since the beginning of the pandemic, we hope these efforts to create a haven for your child give you confidence in our care.
