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)
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.
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
Cooking Academy™ (3 – 12 Years)
In Cooking Academy, kids learn new recipes from cultures around the world and develop a healthy relationship with food. They’ll 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!
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.)
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language to develop vocabulary and conversation skills. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts, and pets, as well as how to engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover 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.
Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!
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!
Words are not enough to express how amazing the staff at Concord KinderCare are. I am a single parent with twins and suddenly founds myself without childcare with only one week's notice. They took in my twins when they were 10 months old and not a day goes by that I am not grateful for their support and kindness and experience and helpfulness. Not only that, I have seen my kids grow and blossom being in their classrooms. They may be twins, but they are nothing alike. They are treated as individuals and they are given as much love and support as I could ever hope for. I feel I have built great connections with the staff here at the center and the relationships are more personal than it being a servicing center, I feel like they are a part of our family.
Thank you Concord KinderCare for everything you are and everything you do!!”

My first child was 9-weeks-old when I dropped her off for the first time. That was almost nine years ago, and I'm still dropping off a child today, my third. I trust the staff completely with the care of my children. I love the fact that all three of my kids will have had the same teachers for their toddler, twos, and three's classes so far in the nine years we've been there and I don't doubt that by the time my three-year-old moves up in age, that she will have the same teachers my other daughter and son had. To me, that is one of the best parts of KinderCare in Concord. I know the staff like they are family. My children have grown up with structure and love. And I'm grateful to the teachers and staff at KinderCare for that. (And KinderCare ROCKS at potty training :)”
Jeri B. - KinderCare Parent
"Above and beyond" perfectly describes the quality of care you get at Concord KinderCare. Being new parents, we were nervous and full of questions when we first came into the center for a tour. From the moment we stepped in, we were welcomed by extremely friendly staff, and a fun, clean center. After talking to the teachers, we knew right away that it was the best fit for our family. All the teachers love what they do and it really shows through the smiling faces of the children. Our daughter started when she was six months old. She is now almost three years old, and still can't stop raving about how much she loves her teachers, and how much she enjoys going to school. Our son, who just started in the infant room, is always very happy and content when we pick him up. Daycare location was one of the most important decisions my husband and I had to make as parents, and choosing Concord KinderCare was the best decision we ever made.”
Phuong B. - KinderCare Parent
I have to say that I am so impressed in all the ways my children are developing since starting at Concord KinderCare! My son is happy and excited about school, as is my daughter! Ms. Christina is an amazing teacher and has taken such good care of my kids. She makes them feel important, and they love her! I am confident that my children are in good hands while I am at work and this is truly the best feeling. Besides growing academically, they are more confident and surprise me every day. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for excellent child care.”
S. M. - KinderCare Parent
Thank you so much for throwing such a great party last night. It was so heartwarming to see all these great kids enjoying the music and dancing and playing. It was such a treat to be able to talk to the teachers and parents and celebrate our beloved Zipper. I know I don’t say it enough, but we are so glad to have found you guys – and could not be happier with the care and affection that our kids are receiving. You truly are a part of our family. Thank you so much for the environment you have created at Concord KinderCare. You are unique and very much appreciated.”
