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.

Bruceville KinderCare Programs

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.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare partners with Child Care Aware® of America to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and flexible support to fit their needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

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!

Music Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)

KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Kids will learn to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. Our original curriculum 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.)

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.

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.

Family Stories

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

  • We're first time parents & were super hesitant to put our five-month-old in daycare, or in the care of anyone else for that matter. We looked at our centers & in-home cares but didn't seem to have that "click" or connection with any of them. We then decided to stop into KinderCare after being referred by a friend who took her baby to this center as well. 

    First thing that we liked was that you either have to be buzzed in or have the code to even get into the door. That added security made us feel good. We were introduced to the center director, Julie, who was warm and welcoming from the very start and really understood all of our concerns and questions (trust me we had a lot). She was patient and took the time to go over everything in detail. The assistant director, Sue, also was able to help explain things about the center and show us around as well. 

    Now as far as the infant area itself, it's required that everyone wears shoe covers before entering the room, which makes sense since infants are always on the floor. Again, just another thoughtful thing that they do that makes us feel like they care about the well being of our baby. The play area has lot of toys and fun, stimulating things they can play with. They do have curriculum and songs as well but limited since they are so small. Teachers and staff are great! They remember our baby's name and our baby also remembers them as well! They know his special favorite things, and the do's and don’ts of each child. Each baby is on his or her own eat and sleeping schedule and they get their own crib and cubby with pictures on them :) Each day they provide a "my day" log to show all the things baby did that day down to the minute! I could go on and on but overall great place that really seems to care about the health and development of each child!

    Joseph & Samantha - KinderCare Parent
  • I love KinderCare! We recently moved to the area and had no idea where to take our preschooler. After asking around, we took a tour of the KinderCare on Bruceville road. We were in the building for less than 5 minutes, and I was ready to sign up. Each person I met was warm, welcoming and really took an interest in my daughter. They took the time to make a connection with her. When we were ready to go, she started crying because she wanted to stay! Since our first day, we have never had a bad experience. Every day she comes home exhausted from all of the fun activities she did all day long. We are lucky to have found KinderCare!
