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)
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!
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.
Elementary School Distance Learning
Healthy bodies, happy hearts, growing minds. We make distance learning easy on your whole family! Our teachers are trained to facilitate safe and dynamic learning experiences online and in-person. Since every school has their own learning plan, we’ve added flexible enrollment options to meet your family’s needs. Whether you choose to enroll full-time, part-time, or before and after school, we’re here for you!
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 take a moment to say how much I appreciate the Carter Creek KinderCare for all their services. My daughters have been coming here since June of 2011 and we have had wonderful experiences with the teachers, who are awesome and show they care and are there for your children. It's always a pleasure to see the staff at the front desk to welcome and say goodbye to the families as they come and get their kids at the end of the day. I would recommend KinderCare to those who are looking for an awesome daycare. My daughters are school-age children, so the curriculum they teach gives them that extra learning in the summer time. I appreciate all the staff for their hard work!”
Lori C. - KinderCare Parent
I first had my two-month-old daughter at a daycare that I thought would be great (because of the name of the school and the values it stated to instill). I ended up taking her out of the school two months later because I did not agree with how they treated her. I was skeptical about bringing her to KinderCare because there were no cameras readily available. My daughter is now one year old and I am absolutely thankful for the Carter Creek KinderCare! Everyone knows my daughter's name. They greet her every morning when we come in; they tell me all about her day when I pick her up; and they feed and teach her! I am beyond pleased with how Ms. Cynthia is running the establishment. There are times when my daughter doesn't even want to leave! Ms. Shameshala is her "second" mommy and it makes me so happy knowing my child is happy there! There is a "no shoe" policy, which I love. There are no swings to sit the baby in--everything that is done with my child is all hands-on! I am so blessed to have found this center and my daughter will be staying here for a very long time. Thank you Cynthia, Alexis, Shameshala, Kim, and everyone for being so wonderful!”
Venessa B. - KinderCare Parent
My kids have been attending Carter Creek KinderCare since 2015. I enrolled my oldest when she was only three years old and my middle when she was just one, I also introduced my youngest child when she was about two months old. Through our years with KinderCare I have seen the teachers at our center build and maintain a relationship of LOVE, TRUST and FRIENDSHIP with not only my children but myself as well. From potty training to shoe tying, to learning to walk, to helping my child with speech problem have the confidence to speak in front of a multitude of people, I couldn’t have entrusted my kids to a more dedicated center. Each of my children have dedicated teacher who understands their challenges and handle them all with a smile and open arms. My children look forward to attending “school" every day and I have peace knowing I am sending them to a staff that radiates kindness and love from the moment you enter the door. I would recommended a KinderCare facility to any and everybody.”
