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.
Transitional Kindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)
A program for children who missed the kindergarten cutoff date. If your child completed or mastered prekindergarten but did not meet the cutoff date for kindergarten, this is the right choice for you. Enhanced whole-group activities and project-related learning activities help engage children in key competency areas such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
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!
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!
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.

Our grandson is now moving on to kindergarten and I just wanted to share what a good experience it was for him to attend Andover KinderCare. We are sad he is moving out of the district, but so glad he has been given the opportunity to grow so much with KinderCare.The staff was always good to me and my grandson, which made it easy to leave him every day for the last three years. I always knew he was safe and secure in your care. Thank you all so much!”
Jan - KinderCare Parent
We moved to Andover, Kansas at the end of 2015 and our two children have been attending KinderCare for a month. We cannot say enough good things about this place! They have done such a good job with our children. This facility is remarkable for having well-organized, well-trained staff leading to outstanding child care and developmental and educational services. They treat my kids well. The providers are caring, loving, and team with us to address any needs they may note.”
Vincenzo - KinderCare Parent
I would like to express my humble gratitude for the loving environment Andover KinderCare has provided for my son. It was extremely difficult trying to find a child care provider that I trusted to help mold my son into a well-rounded individual. It was also crucial for me to find a facility that would provide the love, care, and security he deserves. KinderCare has more than met my expectations in all areas and I feel very fortunate to have met the staff here. KinderCare has been a very important aspect of my son's life. He loves the friends he has made as well as his teachers. KinderCare has helped prepare him for kindergarten through expectations of success and a commitment to quality that can be described as exceptional.”
Brandy - KinderCare Parent
Andover KinderCare is like a hug. The staff are always caring and giving, and are always ready to listen to your concerns, ideas, or requests. It has been a home away from home for our son and daughter. They have been given care and teachings for almost two years. We have enjoyed the summer camp, phonics, and cooking classes they offer. Also, their playground is the largest I've seen with local day cares! Alisha is a great team leader, teacher, and care giver. We look forward to the next two years we'll have with her and her "Kind"erCare team.”
Mindi - KinderCare Parent
I absolutely love this KinderCare center! The staff every morning is so amazingly nice and happy to see each kid as they come in and always greet my son with a smile and a hug. My son is only two years old but he cannot wait every day to go to play group. The director Tiffany she has been so helpful and nice about everything. This was my first time having my son in any kind of daycare and she was right there with us helping us out. They spent a little extra time with my son to see where he was at his group and it's just amazing to see the growth and change in him. I absolutely love everyone here and have told numerous people that I know about how amazing it is.”
