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.
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.
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.)
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!
My husband and I decided to place our three children, ages four, three and one, in daycare last May. We interviewed several sites and could not believe how much better KinderCare was in comparison to some of the others in the area. Yes, expense is a consideration, but in daycare I truly believe you get what you pay for. The staff at KinderCare is wonderful and goes above and beyond to ensure that all children are safe and having fun. The kids learn at an exponential rate, without even knowing they are doing so. When I ask my three-year-old daughter, "What did you learn today?", she commonly replies "Nothing, I just played!".
Furthermore, our children all have special dietary needs and severe life-threatening food allergies. Not only does the wonderful cook ensure the food preparation meets our needs, but each and every teacher knows the food allergies of my three children. My oldest recently switched classrooms and his new teacher already knew of his allergies and what needed to be done! We previously had a nanny come to our home simply because of the food allergies and my fear of sending the children to a school with a large number of other, messy, food sharing children! I am thankful to report it has never been a problem at Kindercare. We are happy, my children are safe and happy, and my house is clean! Thank you to our KinderCare family!”

I cannot say enough about our center and our director. The programming is top notch, they address issues and concerns on the spot, and they are great with communication between parents and staff. We have been a part of the center for over six years and have referred at least two families. Our kids are happy and well taken care of and that makes things so much better for our working family.”
Kat - KinderCare Parent
My daughter started at KinderCare in the infant classroom. She has had amazing care and education since. I was amazed at what the teachers could do with infants. Each new classroom has left me pleased. The teachers are kind and compassionate. My daughter has learned so much and has made so many great friends. Even teachers that are not involved in my daughter's everyday care know her name and take the time to smile and even give her a hug. My daughter just recently said to me, "Miss Annie and Miss Karolyn make me happy. They are my friends!"”
Julie - KinderCare Parent
I started out with my first son in daycare, and I now have two! Ms. Kelly and the rest of the team eased me through the difficult transition of letting go. It's so hard to let someone else take care of your children, but if they have to be in daycare, I'm glad they are here. I have complete trust in all of the teachers, who not only take care of my kids and teach them so much on a daily basis, but also give them lots of love and hugs when I cannot be with them. I honestly think that if I had not found this particular Kindercare center, I would have had to keep them home with me. I trust them to care for my children completely!”
Jennifer - KinderCare Parent
My daughter has been attending Kindercare on Roberts Drive for about 10 months. We absolutely loved her first teacher in the toddler class and we are sad when she moved in to a new class. However, we soon fell in love with our new teacher as well! We have always feel as though the teachers absolutely adore and care well for our daughter. We could not be happier with our choice for childcare!”
Brooke - KinderCare Parent
Liam's teacher would read him his favorite book, <em>Under the Sea Adventures</em>. While reading the book, she taught Liam to recognize and say the word Octopus at just 14 months!&nbsp; I've always been very pleased with the attention and care that my son and family receives at Kindercare.”
Krista - KinderCare Parent
This summer has been perfect from beginning to end! My boys, Christian, Caden and Christopher always have a smile on there faces when I pick them up every evening. Mr. Adam has been a god send. Thank you so very much to him and all of the staff at KinderCare!”
