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.)
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.

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.

Words From Our Families
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My daughter has been with KinderCare since she was eight weeks old, and she is now 27 months olds. I did not plan for her to go to KinderCare when I was pregnant I had her registered at another daycare; however, due to some miscommunication when she was four weeks old I learned the other daycare had removed her from their waiting list. I scrambled around town trying to find a daycare with an opening. I came across two centers with openings. As soon as I walked through the KinderCare door's I knew this was were my daughter would be going. As a new mom with no family in the area, I've always been grateful for how the KinderCare staff takes the time to talk to me about my daughters care. Each staff member knows my daughter, even if she has never been a part of their classroom . I value the care my daughter receives at KinderCare. Tammie”
Tammie - KinderCare Parent
It was very hard for me to leave my daughter and son with people I did not know. I was very hesitant about daycare because of previous bad experiences, however, after a few days of my children being enrolled at KinderCare, those fears faded away! I love the caring staff. I am able to go to work with the peace of mind that my children will be taken care of and loved. As a teacher, I value the education they receive. My baby is even learning and doing hands-on activities! Goldsboro KinderCare is an exceptional place, so I am grateful for this daycare and the qualified staff that works here. This center believes that every child is important. I also love the fact that the daycare is clean!”
Frances B. - KinderCare Parent
It gives me great pleasure to be a part of such a dynamic and loving atmosphere Day after day. I drop my children off and I trust that they are being put into the best ears, eyes, and hands daily. My journey with KinderCare started back in 2006 when my now, 11 year old was only 18 months old. Since then I have had 3 additional children to enter into the doors of Goldsboro KinderCare and we are still proudly walking through them doors today. The Goldsboro KinderCare Staff truly embodies the word “FAMILY!” It is a home away from home and each person from the Director to the School-Age Teachers embraces each family with TLC.
They strive towards perfection and they keep “us” parents along with our children informed and knowledgeable on the KinderCare way. I salute this staff and leadership for making my children feel right at home. I can’t imagine my life without having some parts of KinderCare involved. They have been there for so long and I honestly don’t see myself leaving but eventually the children will grow up and age out of child-care and after-school care.
So, I just want to let KinderCare Corporate know that here in Goldsboro, North Carolina they are doing the right things, the children are learning, and the parents are being informed and involved with our KinderCare Family. I hope you reward them diligently for all the hard work they put in day by day, month to month, and year after year. They are so deserving of recognition. I consider myself proud to be part of this great team. I am truly looking forward to many more years and growth with my experiences at KinderCare Learning Center of Goldsboro, North Carolina.”
