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.


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)

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.

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

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.)

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!


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.

Our Families

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

  • My children (twin boy & girl) completed the Pre-K program (9/2013 - 6/2014) at this KinderCare location after moving to Centreville from Alexandria. As a parent you are always nervous about changing routines for your children at the 3.5-4 year old age. We sat and spoke to the director, Kara and she couldn't have been any better putting my wife and I's nervousness/hesitation to rest. To this day I still talk to her and we plan on using the after school care program when my children start going to the public school in 9/2015. I appreciate people who don't handle me with kiddie gloves or sugarcoat things. If you ask Kara a question, she will be honest with you and that is all I ask.

    My kids were slightly younger than the other children in the Pre-K class but that program was absolutely perfect for them. At their previous daycare, they weren't being challenged and as a result they were acting out at home. Within 2 weeks of being there, my kids were able to write their name and started behaving better at home, something the previous place in Springfield wasn't teaching them. They were always learning something new and it was shocking how fast they were catching on to things. When my kids went there, the teachers for the Pre-K program were Ms. Alma & Ms. Ereen. They were fantastic.

    Another great thing about this place is that they make their own decisions with regards to snowstorms and "cold" weather. As Kara told me, they do their best to always open on time since they understand parents have to work. I sometimes didn't bring my kids to school when it snowed when every other entity closes but they were open. I learned that with the bigger centers like this one and the one my kids currently go to (My kids graduated from the Pre-K program and moved on) is that they are always open in the snow and makes it easier to manage "life" when bad weather hits.

    I would recommend this daycare, Pre-K to anyone looking for something new in the Centreville area or moving to the area. As I said we plan on going back there in the Fall for after school care.

  • I have had a child enrolled her for over a year now and simply love it. The staff is always super nice and will try to accommodate anything reasonable or even make suggestions to help me and my child. They collectively have FAR more experience than I do as a new parent and will always be up for a talk or discussion about my child.

    The center director is just about always available for questions or concerns (unless she's busy filling in where an extra hand is needed). The rest of the staff is super nice and even staff in areas that have nothing to do with my childs age group know him by name. Which goes a long way to making us all feel very comfortable and familiar.

  • My infant daughter attends the Centreville KinderCare.  The class is small and she has a lot of friends.  All of the teachers know her, including the older kids' teachers, and she knows all of the teachers!  Even older children know her by name!  The staff is very helpful and goes above and beyond to help out and make your life easier.  They also provide baby food for the infants here; when we checked out other centers in the area some did not do this.  I have recommended this place to friends and definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for daycare.  

    Kerri K - KinderCare Parent
  • Both my kids attend Centreville KinderCare.  My son started in the toddler class and now is in the three's classroom and loves every teacher so much.  My daughter has been there since kindergarten and is now going to second grade.  Directors and teachers make sure your needs are met.  They are always very helpful with any concerns you may have.
