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.
KinderCare of Boynton Beach 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.
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.
Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten Programs
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!
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!”
Sophia F. - KinderCare Parent
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!”
