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.
Cornell Road KinderCare Programs
Infant Programs (6 weeks–1 year)
Leaving your baby in someone else’s care is a big step. Everyone at our centers—most importantly, our naturally gifted infant teachers—will work with you to make sure the transition goes smoothly. When you step into our infant classroom, you’ll see how much we want your infant to feel safe, loved, and ready to explore their world.
Toddler Programs (1–2 Years)
Everything in our toddler classroom is designed for little explorers. That’s because a lot is going on at this age. When your child is wandering all over the place, that means they’re learning and discovering new things every day. We’ll help them explore their interests (and find new ones!) as they play and learn.
Discovery Preschool Programs (2–3 Years)
This age is filled with so much wonder and curiosity. That’s why we offer a ton of books and toys and bring artwork down to kids eye level. Children in discovery preschool also begin to learn how we all work together in a classroom. Simple math and science, pretend play, and group play help them get used to a more structured school setting.
Preschool Programs (3–4 Years)
This age is all about expression, when kids really start to form their own ideas about what they want to play and how they want to create. Every day in our preschool classroom, your child will explore science experiments, create artwork, and play pretend—all the skills needed for their big next step: kindergarten!
Prekindergarten Programs (4–5 Years)
When you walk into one of our pre-K classrooms, you’ll see artwork and writing displayed around the room. Labels are everywhere to help kids connect letters with words. You’ll also see pictures on the walls that reflect the families in our community. Your child will also deepen their knowledge in language, math, science, Spanish, and social skills.
Before- and After-School Programs (5–12 Years)
You can count on us to provide reliable care for your school-ager while you’re at work, with safe transportation from our center to your child’s school and back! Whether your child wants to start a drama club, build a volcano, or create a comic book, they will have a place to follow their dreams. Your child will start and end the day with a whole lot of fun!
Interactive Kindergarten (5–6 Years)
Kindergarten is a critical year for young learners. Experienced KinderCare teachers will tap into your child’s natural curiosity to help get them even more prepared for elementary school. Our engaging lessons make the most of current technology while offering plenty of hands-on play and exploration.
School Break Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Winter break, spring break, summer break—when school’s out (but you still need to work), you can count on KinderCare to provide a safe and supportive learning environment that’s focused on fun. We welcome children ages 5–12 during school break times and make sure they have a sensational, screen-free experience they won’t forget.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare partners with Child Care Aware® of America to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and flexible support to fit their 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. They’ll 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.)
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!
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!
I wanted to write a quick note to the center to say "Thank You" to Ms. Michelle. I came to her with a question at the end of the day Wednesday regarding my son and we were able to talk through some things and she gave me some good advice. Then, when I came to pick him up today, she had spent some additional time researching my question and had some good information for me.Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the work you all do and know that we're very happy with the care our boys are getting.
He really likes Ms. Michelle (and Ms. Ashley) and I really appreciate the extra effort she went to, in order to help point me in the right direction. It means a lot that she invested the extra time (when I hadn't even had a chance to look into it myself).”
Courtney - KinderCare Parent
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE KinderCare!! Originally I was told my daughter Amirah would have some learning disabilities due to complications at birth. Enrolling Amirah into KinderCare on Cornell you would have never thought those words existed. With great teachers, directors and we can't leave out the PHONICS, currently Amirah is excelling in school and is above her grade level in Reading and Math!! Amirah and I began our journey with KinderCare when she was 2 1/2 years old and this was by far the best decision I made in both our lives!!!”
Candace - KinderCare Parent
Our son was born with a series of medical challenges. Because this was the first time we had used day care, we were nervous. Not only about dropping him off with non-family, but also because he needed special attention. KinderCare made sure our son got all the attention & therapy he needed. He was loved on. He was taken care of. They worked with us every step of the way to ensure he received all the proper medical care. Today he's not just healthy, but his 3 best friends in the whole world also go to KinderCare. And as parents, can we ask for more than that?”
Heather and Eric Barrett - KinderCare Parent
I switched my kids’ daycare to Kindercare, and have noticed great progress since their enrollment. They are doing very well with math, language, large and fine motor skills, and social skills. Importantly, my kids enjoy going to school and are happy when they are dropped off each day, and chat about their friends and teachers after school. They are also excited to show me the new skills they have learned during the day. The teachers and the director have a true open door policy and I know I am always welcome to stop by to see my kids at any time. They also respond quickly to calls and emails. The communication between the school and the parents is exemplary. I am very happy that I switched my kids to Kindercare.”
