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.
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.
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!
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 for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo. Qué pasa?
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.
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!!”
Cheryl L. - KinderCare Parent
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.”
