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!

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!

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!

Our Families

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

  • My husband's family has been attending KinderCare Learning for 3 generations now. He attended when he was an infant through third grade, his sisters children attended from infancy until they were in Kindergarten and first grade, and now our little girl has been attending since she was in the toddler class. Even looking at any other education centers was out of the question because we already had chosen. We have now been attending KinderCare LLC for 2 yeras now and we absolutely love it! From the friendly faces, and greetings when we walk in everyday to the many activities and events going on within the school I know without a doubt KinderCare was the right place for us. I love when we walk in the teachers greet her by name, even though she's not in their class. We have Ms. Tameka as her teacher right now in the twos class. She's awesome! We love her! I love the artwork our daughter brings home, it's my favorite. One of my favorite things is the community events Mrs. Danielle gets us parents involved in such as the seniors fuzzy socks donations, and the Christmas dessert bake off. It's gets us parents involved in the school and outside in the community.

    We love KinderCare and the staff. We definetively made the right choice!

    AJ and Stephen Womble - KinderCare Parent
  • Our family has been part of the KinderCare family for about a year now. When I first was shopping around for daycare for my little one, I met with Danielle the director and immediately I got the warm and fuzzies and felt like this was the place for my son. Everyone from the director, down to the absolutely amazing and sweet cook Annette, has been so welcoming and helpful. My son looks forward to seeing his friends and teachers every day - he has grown, and continues to grow and learn, everything from sign language to potty training! I am proud and thankful for being part of such a great family.

    Val - KinderCare Parent
  • My son Josiah attended KinderCare in Cary for a brief time. However in this time it was clearly evident that from the bottom to the top of the chain existed pure motivation to provide the best environment possible. Every child regardless of family situation, background and ethnic origin is cared for with the value that each child deserves. Every morning you will be greeted with a genuine smile from any staff member in your path, and you will leave with the assurance that can only come with this quality of management. We tend to forget that our children spend more waking hours with our childcare providers then ourselves. Having your child at this center, is the next best thing to the care a parent can provide. I will always be very grateful for our wonderful experience at this establishment.

    Jessica H. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our family has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the KinderCare - Maynard Rd. location. Mrs. Hayes-Countee, welcomed us from day one and she along with the other teachers have maintained communication as we transitioned to the center as a new family and throughout our time with the center. The teachers are professional, approachable, engaged, creative, consistent, and nurturing. Due to a change in schools we have to leave KinderCare - Maynard Rd. We are sad to go as our son has thrived academically and socially at the center. For sure we will share with others the wonderful care and education KinderCare provides!
