Welcome to Cary Knowledge Beginnings

Welcome to Cary Knowledge Beginnings! We’re located west of Raleigh, NC, near Davis Drive. Our curriculum is designed using the latest research in early childhood development. Our center offers a “free day” where your child can be a student for a day and try out our programs. We’re confident that your child will love to learn new things as they develop and grow through our interactive educational opportunities. Our teachers work hard to help their students develop confidence for life.

AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

Our 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.

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!

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

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.)

STEM Innovators (3-8 Years)

You’ve probably heard a lot about how important STEM education is for your child, but what does that really mean? Our STEM Innovators program takes kids’ natural ability to make sense of the world and applies it to robotics, chemistry, coding, geology, and more. While your child experiments, they’ll discover how to use technology to do amazing things!

Our Teachers

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

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • My two kids go to Knowledge Beginnings and we have loved them from the start! The teachers in all age groups are great! They are loving, caring, encouraging and inspiring. My older daughter has gained great confidence and an academic advantage through their reading and math program. As parents, you also have an option to enroll your kid in soccer to save some weekend time! The staff and directors are great! They are always responsive and flexible. They answer any questions you have and try their best to help. Sometimes we give them very short notice to have my older daughter stay in the center for spring break, and it is so easy and smooth. Our younger one now is in the infant room. The room teachers Ms. Sashi and Ms. Brentesha are awesome! My daughters always love to go to Knowledge Beginnings, and I think this speaks for all the students!

  • Do you want the perfect combination of caring and teaching for your child? Knowledge Beginnings is the place you want to be! Here, staff are invested in the education and well being of your children. Our son is almost four and has been attending since he was 11 months. We have been so impressed with his social and academic skills as he has grown older and moved through different classrooms. He loves to interact with his friends and teachers. He has conversations with us about his days and what he is learning. Our son is learning about letters, themes, and numbers. He loves story time and discussing what they have read. He is always so excited! In addition to his regular class, he also participates in a hands on cooking class. It is one of his favorite things to do there and he always looks forward to it.  Our daughter is now one and has been going to Knowledge Beginnings since she was seven weeks old. The teachers in that room are by far the most amazing and loving people. I didn’t worry for a second about leaving my little baby! After over a week with her, they knew what her cries and expressions meant and were always able to tell me so many interesting things about her day. As she has grown up there, she always runs into class and gives her teachers hugs and loves to play. There are so many different things that impress me about this center. The directors and staff all know my children even if they are not directly working in a room with them. The teachers are always positive and are enthusiastic about their passion for teaching. Communication between staff and parents is a huge plus. My children are loved and always taken care of. They get to be social and they are learning more than I can keep up with sometimes! This is a center of happiness for our family!

  • We came to Knowledge Beginnings based on a recommendation from a co-worker. At the time, we had an almost one-year-old and a five-year-old who was just two months from school. We hated to move our five-year-old to a new school for such a short time, but the Knowledge Beginnings staff was excellent in welcoming her and we could not have asked for a better transition. We have had no regrets with our decision to choose Knowledge Beginnings. The staff is wonderful in all areas of the center.
