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.
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.
Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten Programs
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I enrolled my daughter Nila Krishnan in KinderCare center, Coconut creek when she was 10 months old and as a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at KinderCare every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance Nila has received.
Miss. Cynthia, Maria and all of the teachers that my daughter grew up with are amazing from both care taking and learning perspective. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great conversations and activities that go on each day at "school!"
My daughter loves to go to "school." as Miss Cynthia and Maria has made learning so much fun and She talks fondly of them and all other teachers at school.
Words cannot express the thanks that my family has for Miss. Cynthia, Miss. Maria, Miss. Dora,Miss. Jeniffer, Miss. Monica Miss. America and each and every KinderCare early childhood teacher and staff person that has been a part of our family for almost 6 years.
Thank you very much for being a big part of Nila's amazing childhood experience.

Today is our daughter Lilian's last day at KinderCare and we would like to formally thank you and your wonderful staff for everything that has been done for Lilian and for our family since our first day at the center.
When Lilian first came to KinderCare, she was 19 months—there was a lot to learn (for both Lilian and us, the parents!) Still, your caring and loving teachers, especially Ms. Maria, made it all fine and fun. We then had to travel and when Lilian came back to KinderCare, she was in the Discovery Preschool class. It was at that thime that Lilian became potty trained—I can't stress enough how Ms. America and Ms. Monika were always willing to work with us towards Lili's success! Next was the Preschool class; that's when Lilian had to deal with the big change in her life of becoming a big sister. She went through a period of being oversensitive and she needed patience and time to adjust to the new reality. Well, I just do not know how we all would have done it without Ms. Dora's support and understanding. Then, finally, it was time for the Prekindergarten—Lilian was becoming more mature and inquisitive little girl and how lucky were we to have have dear Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Maria as her instructors; they were always there to guide, to motivate and to be great role models.
Now that Lilian is starting Kindergarten soon, we feel secure that she is completely ready for the new school challenges, thanks to KinderCare. She has developed academically, socially, and emotionally, and KinderCare has made all these changes as positive and enriching as possible. We will never forget you. Thank you!!!

My experience with KinderCare has been great. I feel our relationship with this center and the staff is like a big family. I have had my daughter enrolled since she was 10 months old and now have my son also in the same class where my daughter started, and best of all, with the same teachers. Both of my kids have had great milestones from social skills to education. What I love the most is how we all communicate on our kids improvement and the low attrition in their staff. The teachers have been there for so long it makes it easier to feel at home. We moved to another city over a month ago, and we love this center so much we still take our kids there. It is definitely worth the extra drive. I would recommend this KinderCare facility to everyone!!!!

KinderCare has been a wonderful school. My daughter has attended here since she was two and we love it. The school has friendly staff and the teachers are great with the children. My daughter goes part-time and on the days she is off, she is asking to go to school. I have noticed she has learned a lot, from vocabulary to making friends and being social wherever we go. I would definitely recommend KinderCare to all my friends. It has been a great teaching facility.

Our daughter, Sneha, attended KinderCare Coconut Creek starting with 2's in Jan 2012 through up to VPK/Summer Camp in Aug 2015.
As Sneha moves onto 'K' grade, we would like to take this opportunity to thank her teachers, staff and everyone in the management team.
Our deepest gratitude to her teachers Ms. Cynthia, Ms. Dora, Ms. Tasha, Ms. Alini, Ms. Maria, Ms. America, Ms. Monica, Ms. Josie, Ms. Jennifer & Ms. Pearl. Thanks to Mr. Kevin and Ms. Zaidan from the management team.
Excellent teachers, staff & the management team. Teachers always gave their 110%, yes 110%, for Sneha's academic preparation & development. Parent-Teacher conferences from time to time helped us out a lot.
We are very happy with KinderCare Coconut Creek, 5 stars.
