Welcome to Marketplace KinderCare

We're happy to welcome you to Marketplace KinderCare, located on Theatre Drive in Champlin, Minnesota! Our curriculum focuses on early academics, physical activity, and social-emotional learning to nurture healthy bodies, happy hearts, and growing minds. Health and safety have always been our top priority because knowing your child is safe means you can feel sound. It’s our mission from the moment you walk into our center that you feel welcomed and a part of our KinderCare family!

We’re proud of the industry-leading health and safety measures we’ve put in place to protect your family and our staff. And, if you need distance learning support for elementary school kids, grade K-6, we’re here for you. Contact our center director to learn more. We can’t wait to see you soon!

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!

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.

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!

  • We recently enrolled in the Marketplace KinderCare and have never been happier with a childcare experience! The staff are amazing, every single person we have met has been awesome! My son has a food intolerance and they go above and beyond to include all kids with snacks and treats that are comparable, so no one feels left out. The cook does a fantastic job with the menu in general, exposing the children to a variety of meals that our Dietitian greatly approves of. The interactive learning and play throughout the day keeps my Pre-K involved and wanting to go to "school" everyday. The interactive App keeps us parents informed of the day to day, something we never had before. The facility is fantastic and my son loves the gym. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend KinderCare Marketplace as Kristen and all the staff are amazing.
