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.

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.)
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.

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 think often of how grateful I am for the teachers and staff at KinderCare. I can't be with my son all day, but I can feel good about leaving him there because I am confident that he feels good there.
The teachers create such a genuinely CARING environment- they really get to know my son and it warms my heart to see him respond to them the way that he does.
They all add something to my son's day and I'm very thankful!
K. Anderson - KinderCare Parent
We are first time parents and the fears of bringing your baby to daycare were quickly removed. Each morning we are greeted with a smile and "Good Morning" from Ms. Julianna and it is fun to see how excited she is to see her teacher and friends. We love how engaged and happy our daughter is at KinderCare!
We find KinderCare amazing. The passion each instructor has and the absolute care for your child is truly genuine. The halls are decorated with arts and crafts and each item we bring home is an amazing keepsake to our journey. We are so thankful we found a wonderful place to take our daughter!”
Tonja M. - KinderCare Parent
My children have been coming to KinderCare for 2+ years and I have been very pleased with the care they have received. My daughter is now in Kindergarten but she still likes to visit her prekindergarten classroom when we pick up her brother to see her teachers and her friends that weren't ready for the transition to Kindergarten. Ms. Toni and Ms. Kristi did a fantastic job preparing her for Kindergarten. They were both very warm and friendly but firm with the children when necessary and managed their classroom well.
My son started as an infant and has transitioned through 3 classrooms so far. He looks forward to going to "school" and has shown so much progress with his language, knowledge and social skills. He comes home singing the alphabet and counting things, showing me things I know I didn't teach him! He has loved all his teachers- Ms. Roxanne, Ms. Nicole and Ms. Ellen.
The administrators have been very easy to work with and flexible with our part time scheduled. I usually work Monday, Wednesday and Friday and bring my son on those days. If I need to change my work schedule, they are always willing to accommodate me and switch days as long as they remain in ratio. I feel very comfortable dropping my children off at KinderCare, confident that they will received great care!”
Katie H. - KinderCare Parent
I currently have 4 kids enrolled in this location. Two are in the school age class for track-out, one is in the pre-k class, and one is in the infant class. I am in love with the staff. They are so sweet and caring to all of my children. They do fun and creative activities and offer extra classes for the kids, such as phonics and cooking classes. I am never worried about leaving my kids here. They handle themselves professionally, and at the same time they feel like family. One thing that is amazing is the communication they have with the parents, and they are always doing nice things for the parents such as coffee, muffins, or breakfast to go!”
