AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited - nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference, and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.
Infant Programs (6 weeks - 1 year)
Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
Toddler Programs (1 – 2 Years)
As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.
Discovery Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)
At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.
Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)
As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.
Prekindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)
Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.
Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)
Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.
Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.
Elementary School Distance Learning

Since every school has their own learning plan, we’ve added flexible enrollment options to meet your family’s needs. Whether you choose to enroll full-time, part-time, or before and after school, we’re here for you!
Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program
Cooking Academy™ (3 – 12 Years)
In Cooking Academy, kids learn new recipes from cultures around the world and develop a healthy relationship with food. Kids in this delightful and delicious program whip up everything from Southwest rainbow lettuce wraps to pumpkin muffins, building their skills in STEM, communication, and more along the way. And yes—little chefs get to eat their culinary creations!
Music Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)
KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It blends math, science, social studies, literacy, and mindfulness (think yoga!) for a uniquely KinderCare way of learning the foundations of music.
Phonics Adventures® (2 – 4 Years)
Learning how to read is a whole lot of fun at KinderCare! We help kids grow to love books and words (and get ready for kindergarten) in our Phonics Adventures program. From discovering the basics of vowels to practicing poetry, kids learn all about letters and sounds in small-group lessons made just for their age group. (Bonus: Kids who attend our phonics program are more prepared than their peers for school—and we have the data to prove it.)
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo. Qué pasa?
STEM Innovators (3-8 Years)
You’ve probably heard a lot about how important STEM education is for your child, but what does that really mean? Our STEM Innovators program takes kids’ natural ability to make sense of the world and applies it to robotics, chemistry, coding, geology, and more. Your child will experiment with activities like learning how lemon juice and baking soda interact to uncover secret messages, watching fizzy reactions in action, and discovering how to use technology to do amazing things!
We're the only company in early childhood education to select teachers based on natural talent. Being a great educator isn't enough though. KinderCare teachers are also amazing listeners, nurturers, boo-boo fixers, and smile-makers. Put more simply, we love our teachers and your child will, too.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I have my two sons enrolled into KinderCare and have received the best care for them. They are two and three and all of their teachers have treated them like they were their own. They never fail to inform me on anything that I need to know or answer any questions I have. I have taken my oldest to another daycare and I can honestly say that KinderCare is by far the safest for my boys. Thank you to Ms. Nise the Center Director and all of her staff (too many wonderful teachers).”
Mandi S. - KinderCare Parent
Kindercare is an amazing school! I’ve been taking my two-and-a-half-year-old twins to the center for about seven months now. They had never been in daycare before and had a little separation anxiety. The management and staff have been so helpful with their transition. They are very loving and patient with them and have handled all my questions and concerns in a professional and caring manner. My kids love to come to school now and are so excited to see their teachers and friends every morning!”
Jenn G. - KinderCare Parent
Paradise Hills KinderCare has been a great experience for me for 15 years now. From my oldest who started in 1999 to my middle son who is 10, to my youngest one who is three. KinderCare has served my family with loving teachers and learning that has changed my children's' lives! My oldest, starting at just two years old, is now a senior in high school, and will be valedictorian this year! They all have been in the Learning Adventures programs, which have taught them to read before they went to kindergarten, the older Reading program served as a confidence builder and brought my middle child to the next reading level! My youngest, who is just three years old, is learning letters and sounds and loving his preschool class every day! I am so very grateful to KinderCare’s educational programs as well as their loving teachers and managers who have given my children lifelong gifts forever.”
Reveille H. - KinderCare Parent
My first child started at KinderCare when he was two and he is nine now. We have had an amazing experience with every class he has been in as well as Learning Adventures. He started the Phonics program when he was four and by the time he started kindergarten he was ahead of his class due to the strong teachers and lessons. My younger son started at KinderCare when he was three months old. I was nervous for him to start so young, but the Infant Teachers quickly eased my fears. Now he is two and the teacher is very good at communicating and working alongside me with his learning and potty training. I am very pleased with the teachers my boys have had over the years. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The management team is always very knowledgeable and ready to help with any concerns.”
DeAndra M. - KinderCare Parent
My child loves KinderCare! The staff are so sweet and caring! I trust the whole staff with my child and know they will take great care of my baby! I have never felt so at home with a school before and appreciate everything they do every day!”
Kim T. - KinderCare Parent
My daughter started at Paradise Hills KinderCare in Albuquerque at six weeks old! Our family loves the clean environment, her teachers, and the entire team! Everybody greets you with a smile and is very helpful! I couldn't imagine taking her to another school. We love our KinderCare!”
