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.
Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)
Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.
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!
Music Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)
KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It blends math, science, social studies, literacy, and mindfulness (think yoga!) for a uniquely KinderCare way of learning the foundations of music.
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.)
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My grandson is almost five years old and my granddaughter is almost two years old. Both children started at Hebron KinderCare at six weeks old. I am astonished on a daily basis at how much and how quickly they learn. I can tell a vast difference between the cognitive abilities of my grandchildren and children who have not been in such a learning environment. The teachers are caring, nurturing, and passionate. We truly could not ask for a better environment for these children to learn and grow.”
Kay D. - KinderCare Parent
My son is six years and has been enrolled in KinderCare for the past three years. He started his KinderCare experience in Tennessee. We have currently moved back to Texas and he is currently enrolled at the Hebron KinderCare. He really enjoys getting to play and make new friends every day. He enjoys getting up and coming to school each morning. Our family is very pleased to say that the Hebron KinderCare is a GREAT place for children. The Director is very welcoming to all families that she comes in contact with.”
Erik O. - KinderCare Parent
My daughter has been part of the Hebron KinderCare since 2010. It has not only been an amazing experience for her, but for our whole family as well. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. My daughter started "big school" (kindergarten) this year. She is currently reading at a second grade reading level, due to amazing Pre-K and Phonics teachers! She also has had three semesters of report cards full of E's! I am so thankful for the teachers and amazing curriculum in her classrooms!”
Patrick L. - KinderCare Parent
I have four children here: two school-agers and twins in the toddler room. They are fairly new at this school, as we transferred from another KinderCare and came to this location. As any parent, I was unsure of how my children would react to the new teachers, especially my twins. But much to my enjoyment, they love it! Their teacher has a lot of patience with them, and shows them a lot of love and attention. My older two in the School-Age Classroom have friends there as well from school, so they felt right at home here, too! I would recommend this center to anyone inquiring now that I have gotten to know the staff, the Assistant Director, and the Director.”
Amber H. - KinderCare Parent
When my baby came to my house, everything in my life changed for good, but I was so scared. Then I found this magical place that helped me take care of my baby. Thanks, KinderCare, for all you do for us!”
Katherin S. - KinderCare Parent
This is by far the best daycare I ever enrolled my child in, hands down! My child has been going here since she was born. I love seeing my child come home, tell me about her day, and share what she learned at this school. It amazes me how young she is and how much she's learned. I am now five months pregnant with my second child and already excited to enroll her, too. I love this daycare and I wouldn't trade it for the world.”
