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)
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.
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. 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.)
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 to develop vocabulary and conversation skills. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts, and pets, as well as how to engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover 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!”
