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.
Englewood 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.
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.)
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!
We want to say "Thank you" to the teachers in the infant classroom. We know your job can be stressful. But, we always appreciate you taking time out of your day to hang out and cuddle our little boy. Thank you Ms. Courtney for being so helpful and considerate with our family.”
Carolina - KinderCare Parent
I have been with KinderCare for 10 years and would not change it. I have 6 children that go to the KinderCare Learning Center and they all love going there! I have 5 children in the school age classroom and one in the Pre-Kindergarten classroom The teachers are very patient with my youngest son with his learning disabilities. The Learning Center is part of our family, because it takes a villiage to raise children and I am so very thankful for all of their help. Ms. Chantell, Ms. Stacey, Ms. Tammy and all of the other teachers have been terrific and I appreciate their help with raising my "Little Monsters." :)”
Kristle - KinderCare Parent
I was a stay at home mom for 3 years. So, when I first brought my daughter to KinderCare, I was beyond nervous and scared and worried about who was raising her all day. After a few months of getting to know her teachers, I was completely relieved and very excited for her new journey! I love that I can leave her knowing she is being cared for just as if I were there. Her teachers have been such a blessing for our family!”

Joyce - KinderCare Parent
I love KinderCare! My daughters teachers are awesome!. We have always felt welcome there. She learns so much during the 2 years that she has attended. I wouldn't have her go anywhere else. Big shout out to Ms. Tammy and Ms. Chantell for everything they do. Whenever I felt uncomfortable with things or didn't understand, they always helped us to feel comfortable and wanted. They help teach all of the kids their ABC's, their numbers and good manners. I highly recommend this Learning Center to anyone looking!”

As a parent, I love the fact that my daughter, who is 2, knows all the cars in the parking lot. She gets so excited when she sees' the different teachers and yells out their names. She also tells me the colors of the cars, which I also love. She is so comfortable here with all of the staff and other children.”
