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.
Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.)
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. Your child will experiment with activities like learning how lemon juice and baking soda interact to uncover secret messages, watching fizzy reactions in action, and discovering how to use technology to do amazing things!
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.

After looking around at many schools for my 4 year daughter, I found myself at KinderCare in the City of Industry. It was my daughters first time going to a school and I was very nervous. The staff at KinderCare helped me feel so much more at ease. When I was worried about my daughter while I was working, I would get an email with pictures of her to help me feel comfortable. It meant a lot to me to have the staff not only care for my daughter, but for my feelings as well. It’s hard leaving your child at school for the first time. It did not take long for my daughter to start recognizing her letters and numbers after she had started school. This amazed me that she could learn so quickly. Mr. Gilbert, her teacher, spent so much quality time with her. I have never in my life met a teacher who was so passionate about the education of the children in his care. Every time I would walk into the classroom the children were so enriched in the activities that were going on. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful whenever I had a concern. I would highly recommend KinderCare to other families, especially Mr. Gilbert!”

I just wanted to take a few moments and say how grateful my husband and I are to the staff at KinderCare for helping our daughter transition to school as smoothly as possible, considering this was the first time she was being separated from us! I am the mother of a 2 year old girl. As I mentioned before my daughter has never been seprated from me until we started KinderCare. My husband and I decide that we would try sending her to school so she could socialize with other children. I had no idea what was going to happen and especially as a first time mom I was very nervous. When we entered the school, we were greeted by everyone that walked by us and everyone seemed very friendly. That made me feel a bit more at ease. My daughter however, was still hiding behind my leg and did not want to speak with anyone! The very first day we started her she immediately started crying and grabbing my leg. You can imagine how heartbreaking it was for me to see her like that. I was about to give up on the whole thought of taking her to school when I was approached by the center director. She was patiently explaining to me how this is a very normal behavior from children especially the ones that has never been separated from mom. She gave us the opportunity that week to go to the school for a few hours everyday and asked me to stay with her! I still was not convinced but I agreed to give it a try! It was a very interesting week for us because not only did my daughter get a chance to slowly trust the teachers and the other students in the class, it also gave me an amazing opportunity to see what they do everyday and how amazing their curriculum and interaction was with every child. Long story short, my daughter is going to school every single day now and everytime I go to pick her up she asks me to stay a little bit longer! She has came a long way and learned so much! It is amazing to see how fast she is developing and how much she is learning everyday! So thank you so much to all the wonderful staff who made such a difference in our lives!!!”
