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.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.
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.)
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!
Various learning camps
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.
Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!

My children LOVE their teachers and the teacher's LOVE the kids. Everyone is friendly and the children learn so much. I have always felt that I had an active voice and opinion in my children's learning and the center.”
Laura - KinderCare Parent
I can't say enough great things about KinderCare. Our baby is in the infant room and since she started going this spring, we have been nothing but pleased. The teachers are caring, supportive and very organized. You can see how they have a real bond with our daughter and the other kids. The facility is clean, bright and friendly. The center director and assistant director are so helpful, responsive and flexible. I reach out with questions via email often and they always reply quickly. I call over my lunch to check in on my daughter and they always are so nice and give me a detailed update which I appreciate. We are very happy at KinderCare and highly recommend it to anyone looking for high-quality childcare.
Dennille - KinderCare Parent
I cannot say enough how much the Kindercare team has meant to our family. For the past five years, they have helped our daughter grow and learn more than we thought possible. From cooking classes to Spanish lessons and field trips, she has had many adventures and lots of fun. The team loves and cares for her as if she were their own, and we truly appreciate all of their hard work and dedication.”
Cindy - KinderCare Parent
“Our school age daughter has been with the center for a little over a year now. My husband and I are very happy with Kinder Care. We have peace of mind knowing that she is well taken care of and she truly enjoys the center especially in the summer with all the field trips and activities.The staff deserves a big thank you for the care they give each and every day.”
Sharon - KinderCare Parent
“Finding out we were having twins was an absolute shock. We were hoping to find one healthy heartbeat, and when the doctor said we're having twins, we were so overjoyed, but then immediately concerned about how would we take care of two children at the same time? Our twins were born 5 weeks early, and we were fortunate enough to have their grandmother stay home with them for the first 18 months of their life. We knew we eventually wanted them to attend a structured daycare, but we weren't ready to cross that road yet. When the time came, we shopped daycare facilities around the Allentown area. We immediately felt at home with Kindercare. We were giving a tour of the facility, giving some information regarding the curriculum in the toddler area and all our questions were answered.The twins started out part time at 18 months and not every morning was a joy! There were plenty of tears dropping off in the morning, but the teachers in the toddler room took it all in stride. They assured us this happens, the children are ok and a few minutes after we walk out the door they calm down. We had plenty of phone calls for sick children, which happens, and when our children were involved in a small accident, which also happens. We were always given an explanation and we always felt assured our children were in safe hands. Fast forward to three months after their second birthday, we were now ready to attend the facility full time as we were losing the Grammy Nanny to another family member. Our children look forward to seeing their friends and their teachers in the morning, and they enjoy the special celebrations for certain days. We are amazed at the level of learning as well. It is such a joy to hear your two year old sing you the ABCs or count to ten knowing they learned this at their daycare facility. They sing songs on their own that they have learned in their environment. Sending our children to Kindercare has been such a bittersweet blessing. Nobody wants to give up that special time with their children, but as working family, we must. Knowing our children are safe and having fun at Kindercare allows us to have peace of mind to perform well at our jobs so we can better take care of our family.”
Melissa - KinderCare Parent
My son Tyler has been attending KinderCare since he was 3 months old and he has recently transitioned into the toddler room. Tyler and I love the staff/teachers. I chose KinderCare for two reasons: first, because of their learning curriculum & engaging activities and second, because out of all of the other centers that I evaluated, I felt the most at ease after my tour with KinderCare. Each day I am able to see the new and exciting things Tyler is learning and I am able to incorporate those into his learning at home. It’s great to see the smile on Tyler’s face when he sees his teachers; this reassures me that he is happy there. There have been times that I’ve had questions or a concern and the staff has always been so helpful. I always recommend KinderCare to friends and family seeking a provider.”
Jackie - KinderCare Parent
I've been with KinderCare for 7 years and really love it. The teachers are wonderful and kind and my children have learned so much. They have worked with my part-time schedule from day one and saved my space when I added two more children to my brood. I'm so happy with KinderCare.”
Gina - KinderCare Parent
We have been with KinderCare since early 2006! My oldest daughter started at 8 weeks old. My youngest daughter also started at 8 weeks old in 2008. Both of my children have enjoyed being at KinderCare. They like it so much that when the youngest is dropped off, she pushes us out the door and when she is picked up sometimes cries because she doesn't want to leave. Both of my children love the Learning Adventures programs (music and cooking). They enjoyed all the learning activities during the day and the summer camp programs. They always have stories of what they did and what they learned. They learned the numbers, alphabet and even how to write! I feel very comfortable leaving my children at the center. Everyone at the center has been great!”
