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?
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.

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!
I was thirteen weeks pregnant when I began looking into daycare centers. My husband and I knew I would be returning to work after the birth of our first child and it was important to me to find the best place possible for our baby. I wanted to find a place that would do the things I would do with my child if I were with her all day. I researched 13 daycare centers in the Nashville/Franklin area and visited seven; and by far, KinderCare at Fieldstone Farms exceeded them all! I knew almost instantly it was the perfect place for us, not just for our impending child, but for my husband and I. While the staff at KinderCare does an impeccable job caring for my child, they also have embraced our family. We are all greeted by our first names when we enter or exit the facility; the teachers and staff take the time to talk to us, not only about our daughter, but also about our jobs, families, vacations, interests, etc. In short, KinderCare is our second home; a part of our extended family, helping us raise our little girl. Their staff is kind, caring and patient. They take the time to know the children as individuals and assess how best to work with each child in day-to-day activities. Their level of communication is exceptional! They always share a personal note about my daughter’s day, call whenever something is out of the ordinary or a minor accident has happened. I’ve even received texted pictures of my daughter enjoying a cupcake with her friends on her first birthday. On a broader level, the national organization checks in with parents regularly as well with online surveys and feedback forms. The KinderCare curriculum is outstanding! My mother has been teaching for 31 years, and she is constantly amazed with the things my daughter is doing and saying. It all goes back to KinderCare and their focus on child development. Emotionally, mentally, physically and socially, they cover every aspect of aspect of child development in a fun and creative environment that children really seem to thrive in. I am happy every day that my child attends KinderCare at Fieldstone Farms. I know that she is safe, happy, engaged, and most importantly loved.

I was having a tough time choosing the right child care center for my children. Nothing felt right as we looked at several centers. A coworker of mine suggested we look into KinderCare. Her children attended a KinderCare center in a different part of town but she just couldn't stop talking about how awesome it was for her children. She said her children would get upset when she arrived to pick them up--they just wanted to stay and learn and play.
From the moment we entered the building, the staff made us feel at home. They remembered me calling and inquiring about the center and welcomed my children and me with open arms and hearts. I have a child in the School Age program and also an Infant. The School Age program has been fantastic! The time spent planning centers/activities for the kids, as well as the designated time to help with homework in the afternoons, is so appreciated by my son and I! Being a working mom, having his homework done in the afternoons is such a stress reliever! And my friend was right, there are many days my son doesn't want to leave because he is having so much fun!
The Infant room is more than you can imagine--they truly love and care for my baby as if she were their own. Thank you for individualizing things for her according to our home schedule. They truly make it individual care for each baby. It makes the transition so much easier for her and eases my mind as I leave them to go to work. The open communication is fantastic. They can always tell me about my daughter’s day and her development as they explore knew things. It always amazes me how so many of the teachers know me even though they have never had either child in their class. It really is like one big family and I love that!
Thank you for loving my babies when I can't be there to love on them. I am a stressed mom so it is nice knowing when I leave my children in the morning, there is no doubt that they will be well cared for during the day.
We are always met in the morning with smiling, loving faces. It is so refreshing to leave your most prized possessions with people you feel like are your family. Thank you to an amazing staff!
