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.

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.)
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!
Kindercare's staff and director, Adriana, go above and beyond to nurture and educate the children left in their care. Upon entering all children are greeted by name with warmth and compassion. The individual needs of each child are addressed daily along with a high quality of academic and social activities. This daycare exemplifies the highest levels of education and care that any child can have. I am so grateful to have found such a loving place for my grandson to spend his days with a staff as caring and educationally sound as KinderCare.”

"Education is the key to success!"
Academic excellence has always been at the forefront of my mind along with a balance of social, spiritual and physical(athletic) attributes. All things convene makes us a whole person.
As most Jamaican parents would know, our country puts a greater emphasis on Early Childhood Education. I added a little bit more by sending Tannie to a Montessori School at the age of two. Yes two! Her actual education began during my pregnancy as I did lessons with her while she was in my tummy.
After months of research and at least four follow up visits with KinderCare, the decision was made without a doubt, that we wanted to be a part of the KinderCare family. They have been very supportive to us working through my challenges and skepticism. Their Learning Adventures program offered Tannie the extra lessons she needed to grow academically as she is an advance student.
KinderCare's structured programming has helped to make it possible for my daughter and I to stay together in the US, as it is very challenging to work, study (full time Nursing student) and continue to be an active mom in my child's life. My husband left the other day to our business in Jamaica feeling pleased that his wife and daughter's future is secure.
Thank you KinderCare!”

WOW! I can’t not say enough amazing things about the new director, Christina, and the assistant director, Yassina. These ladies make you feel like family right away and are top of everything that goes on with your child. Even if my child is not in school they will still call to inform you of any new changes or concerns they have. They truly go above and beyond to know you as a parent and your child. The teachers here are also amazing and I am truly blessed they go out of their way to get to know each child. My daughter started in the twos with Ms. Nora who has been absolutely wonderful! Her love for the children shows and you feel good knowing your child is in her hands. My daughter was heartbroken when she had to move on to the threes. However, her teachers here are also incredible! They work with your child one-on-one and show you what areas your child may need more assistants in. As a working mom, it’s important to know what areas your child may be struggling in and it helps me to focus on those area at home. Thank you, ladies!”
