Welcome to Delafield KinderCare

Welcome to the Delafield KinderCare, located south of Naga-waukee Park in Wisconsin. Our center is much more than a daycare. We are professional educators committed to fulfilling your child's educational and developmental needs. Our staff nurtures a warm, welcoming, and supportive classroom for children of all abilities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our mission is that you feel welcomed and part of our KinderCare family the moment you walk through our center doors!

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!


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.


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)

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.

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.

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

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!


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!


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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • Our daughter's journey in the Learning Adventures program at Delafield KinderCare has been an absolute joy to engage in! Whether it is the supplemental learning CDs we sing along to in the car or the adventures at home with the tools provided, we have loved participating with our daughter and experiencing her learning and results outside the classroom. From saying ABC's to now reading and writing them into words, we are very proud of her journey! Well done to her and Ms. Ilah--they both make a great learning team together.

    Tiffany - KinderCare Parent
  • My son loves his Learning Adventures classes. He takes Music, Phonics, Math, and Yoga, and it’s hard to tell which is his favorite. It’s clear that he is gaining skill in letter recognition and sounds as he is starting to pay more attention to signs and words in books. His writing has improved, too! He is much more curious about numbers and putting things in order. We are very happy with the Learning Adventures classes, and we think he will be very well prepared for school and beyond. 

    Allison - KinderCare Parent
  • Our son's journey with Learning Adventures has been amazing! We started with a music class and we could immediately see the impact. He was singing songs at home and telling us about what he learned...we even started to catch him dancing at home! Music was so great, we decided to enter him in phonics when he was old enough. He really surprised us when he came home and was able to read words from his book. He can now read small books and some sentences. Ms. Ilah has been great and we enjoy reading her notes about what our son did during the helps us to feel like we are a part of the process and it gives us new things for us to talk to him about. It's been great!

    Erin Prymas - KinderCare Parent
  • My son is currently getting care at Delafield KinderCare. Due to a military obligation, we had to live short-term in Wisconsin and were able to transfer care to Delafield, WI. The staff at Delafield were absolutely amazing. From day one, the staff went above and beyond. Their inclusive and calm approach was paramount to my son's transition and continued development. Even knowing that we would only be attending their facility short-term, I was amazed when entire team took the time to get to know my son and created an individualized approach based upon his needs and personality. We cannot say enough good things about the staff at Delafield. They will truly be missed and we wished that we could have stayed longer at this facility.

    Zachary K. - KinderCare Parent
  • Our family is so, so blessed to have had all of your wonderful staff help our children learn and grow. It is bittersweet to let you know that I have gotten it approved through work to take some time with my girls and work (very, very) part time so I can be home with them while they are still little. The girls have learned so much and are such great little girls and we couldn't have been happier that we chose this school for them. I have become a better mom and have learned so much from your teachers and consider you all a part of our family. Again, bittersweet because I will be gaining so much extra time with my babies, but our girls love coming here to play with their friends and teachers and it will be sad to say goodbye for us. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to make this transition easier on everyone. Again, thank you all for everything.

    Sarah - KinderCare Parent
  • My daughter has been at Delafield KinderCare since March of 2013.  Every teacher has been fantastic and supportive. When she comes in each day, it's like she's their favorite child.  What a fantastic bunch!
