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.
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!
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!
I have checked many preschools before finalizing this one for my son, Arush, and I am so glad that I have found the Fremont KinderCare location for him. My son is enrolled in this center about one year ago. This is his first preschool ever where I had to leave him alone. The teachers and directors provided me with so much confidence about the quality of care and education they give in a fun loving environment that every child enjoys. My son just LOVES to go there every day. All teachers and directors are just wonderful! I have to mention that Ms. Fatemeh was his first ever primary teacher. She is so lovely and caring. My son, as well as myself, have learned a lot from her. Today, my son moved to another class, however he still recalls how much he is misses Ms. Fatemeh. It's amazing thing to hear from a toddler! I wish they could have elementary school as well. I would highly recommend this location for preschoolers. You'll not regret it and will be happy to see your children there.”
Rupal A. - KinderCare Parent
My child is in the infant room and his teacher is Ms Gurdeep. I just want to let you know how happy we are with Ms Gurdeep and the other staff at KinderCare. My husband and I love coming home from work and reading our son's daily progress report together over dinner. I love the level of detail Ms. Gurdeep provides with going over all of the activities she did with our son and all of his meal times and diaper changes. I feel from these reports that she genuinely cares about his growth and education and that he is receiving a curriculum rather than just day care.”
Liz - KinderCare Parent
Dear Ms Gurdeep, I don't know where to begin! First let me start by saying "THANK YOU!" When Sahana started in the baby room I was so afraid and felt guilty to leave such a small baby in school. But, now after one year I feel, Sahana got all the love and affection that she would have gotten from me, from you. You have been such a great teacher and support, that I am really going to miss you so much when she move's up to the next classroom. I've been very lucky to have gotten such a teacher for Sahana. A big thank you and hug and kiss from us to you.”
Amritha - KinderCare Parent
Ms. Gurdeep is incredible. She was made for this job and you can tell she loves what she does. Our son started with her in the infant room at 6 months old and she was so supportive of him growing and learning how to sit up, eat solids, walk, and talk. Ms. Gurdeep was amazing with us parents too, as we were initially worried to leave our baby there and just getting to know her. She gave us regular updates on how he was doing and suggestions that would help him grow. We trust her 100% and know how much she loves our son. We are so grateful that Ms. Gurdeep was our son's teacher and wish we could keep her as our son progresses into the other rooms. She loves our family and we love her.”
