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.
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.
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.

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
"My classroom is full of art!” says Mary Annthipie-Bane, an award-winning early childhood educator at KinderCare. Art and creative expression, she says, help children discover who they really are.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We're so proud to have been named one of Gallup's 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award. When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience an amazing place to learn and grow.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
There are no words to truly explain how much I appreciate the staff at KinderCare in Arden Hills. I consider myself to be an excessively "protective-mommy" about my child's health, development, and environment. I am so thankful that the staff has gone above and beyond my expectations for my son and all the children at KinderCare. I know my child's teacher(s) care genuinely about him because they provide a lot of enriching activities which are age appropriate and promote child development. They constantly have fun activities for the kids to learn and play and they offer so much support to the children! They always keep me informed on his progress and his strengths and they do not hesitate to call me with any urgent updates. I appreciate their sincerity and every ounce of love they provide my child and all the children in their classroom. Brenda, Tammy, and my child's teachers are always willing to listen to my concerns and openly partner with me to provide the best for my son. The staff is very child focused, friendly, loving, and they are 100% child advocates! They are so balanced with guiding children (for their applicable early childhood phases) to help them develop their social, emotional and academic skills. I love Arden Hills KinderCare and I know my son is well cared for. We would not change centers because we love everyone for their engagement, dedication, and passion for child success!”
Melissa - KinderCare Parent
"We are so happy with KinderCare. Our daughter loves going and never wants to leave. It puts our minds at ease to know our child is receiving such excellent care. We can't imagine our children going to any other daycare provider. We definitely recommend KinderCare."”
Angie & Mike - KinderCare Parent
Our son, Nathan, started attending KinderCare in the Prekindergarten classroom three days a week in September. We are a very busy family and have tried hard to work on letters and numbers in order to prepare him for Kindergarten, but have not been consistent as we would like. It is now April and my son recognizes and can write all 26 letters. He can spell and write his full name. He is also recognizing numbers 0-10 and completing simple addition problems. He is doing all these things a year and a half before attending Kindergarten. I am so amazed by how much he has learned attending school only three days a week. I can only imagine how much he could accomplish if he was able to attend KinderCare five days a week. I am so thankful for the amazing experience we have had as a family and the special attention my son gets each day he is at KinderCare.”
