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.

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. 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!

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!

  • KinderCare in Fenton has been wonderful for us. Our son has Sensory Processing Disorder, which causes him to be a "handful" at times. We started KinderCare in March of 2013 and it has truly been a blessing. The consistency at KinderCare is awesome. There is no turnover there like at the previous daycare we were at. Our son is now in the three-year-old room with Ms. Sheryl, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is truly dedicated to being there for the children no matter what. She and Julie, the Director, have really worked with us and with our son, trying different techniques in dealing with him. They even allowed us to have a specialist come and observe him, and provide them with different ideas on what would work for him. Ms. Sheryl has been so instrumental in working with us that I feel he would not be doing as well as is he is without all the hard work and dedication she has put in. Thank you!

  • Our family has been coming to Fenton KinderCare for over five years. Both of our boys, ages five and three and a half, have called KinderCare their school since they were three months old. We have been very satisfied with our boys' education and care over the years. We have been very happy with the long-tenured core group of teachers that truly care about the children in their charge. They have always been professional and loving. As each of my boys have progressed through their classes, I can always count on an experienced teacher to not only provide quality care for my child, but give me honest feedback on how he is doing with development, behavior, etc. The extracurricular activities and classes for the boys have been great as well. Our oldest is in Phonics with Ms. Colleen and has really made huge strides in this area. Other class offerings, such as cooking classes, are a favorite of my boys. I also am very appreciative of the focus on the Spanish language and they regularly learn and recite Spanish words. We also have been impressed with the Director, Julie. She has provided advice on multiple occasions when asked regarding behavior or other concerns with our boys. She provides guidance on how situations are being handled at school so we can mirror at home if necessary. It feels like a lifetime ago that we made the decision to bring our boys to KinderCare. We honestly ended up choosing KinderCare due to Julie’s kind and caring demeanor and the long tenure of the staff. While making the decision to send your child to a daycare is a difficult and personal decision, we have never regretted it for one second. Even now as our oldest prepares to attend kindergarten, I am confident that he has gained the fundamental skills and education needed for him to be successful. I know that our youngest will be just as prepared as well.

  • Our eight month old daughter is enrolled at the Fenton KinderCare Center.  My husband and I are so pleased and so appreciative of everything the Director, Assistant Director and teachers do for our baby girl on a daily basis.  She is genuinely cared for and treated as if she is their own. The communication, care and extra time that the staff provides makes each family feel that their child is special.  It is because of this center, we have seen such a positive transformation in our baby and we couldn't be more grateful!
