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.

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.)
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.

My son started off at a center I worked at and when they told me when I could and couldn't bring him, I was crushed! We toured this location and fell in love. The staff is so nice and so friendly, and made everything easy--from drop-offs to lesson plans--so I knew my son would be safe and learning. My son has been at this location since he was eight months old and still loves it!”
Ashley H. - KinderCare Parent
In search for a daycare for my 12-week-old daughter, a good reputation, a stimulating curriculum, qualified caring staff, and a clean and safe facility were on the top of my list. KinderCare in Greenfield not only has a good reputation and a fun curriculum (even for little babies), but also their staff genuinely seemed to care about and enjoy spending time with my baby. When I bring my baby to the center, she smiles when she sees her teachers rather than crying. And when I pick her up at the end of the day, she appears engaged rather than being dejected or in her own little world. It is natural to have concerns and questions when starting a new care experience, and when I have had a concern or feedback to share, the teachers and staff have been attentive and responsive in following up with me. The staff and Infant Teachers have done a wonderful job in making me feel comfortable leaving my precious bundle of joy with them every day.”
Marc and Katie C. - KinderCare Parent
My sons had been stay-at-home kids their entire life when some changes caused me to need child care for them. My older son is school age, so I wasn't too worried about him, but my little guy has never been in a structured environment. I toured the center and knew right away that it would be the best choice I could make for them. The teachers were all so sweet and loving, everything was well-organized, the center was very clean, and I could tell they had the perfect balance between structure and fun. When my sons started, it was just as I had feared--my youngest son wasn't keen on me leaving and would cry so hard. The center teachers worked hand in hand with me to help him get over the transition, and even though I hated leaving him upset, I knew that they would take great care of him when I could not. The teachers were so overly helpful and great at communication with me so that we could change our approach to get them acclimated quickly. What started out as me leaving them in tears has now turned into happy drop-offs with excitement to see their teachers and friends, and pick-ups where they say, "Oh, Mom...is it time to go already?" What a fantastic feeling that is! The center teachers love my children--I can see and feel it and so can my sons. That is a huge weight off of my "mommy heart." More than that--my sons are thriving! My younger son is so interested in learning and so much more structured than he was when I first brought him in. I see him becoming more independent and communicating better, and I know this is all due to the hard work of his teachers. My older son is more confident at making friends, learning so many fun new games, and is absolutely a happier kid. I cannot say enough for the teachers at this center. They are part of our family now, and I couldn't imagine being at peace with leaving my kids anywhere else!”
Katie V. - KinderCare Parent
Ms. Sara and Ms. Tiffany, a sincere thank you for being the excellent educators that you are! My son attended a program through Greenfield School District called Bee Ready and scored in the 90th percentile. I know this would not have been possible without his education at KinderCare and the hard work and dedication of teachers. He is definitely prepared to start school in the fall. We would love to thank you for all the hard work, support, and encouragement that you have given our son during his time with you in Pre-K. We can't thank you enough for making his time in your classroom so happy.”
Melody and Owen - KinderCare Parent
I would like to share how comfortable and at peace I am knowing that my grandkids are at this daycare. I am especially at peace when Lori is there for my grandson. She has the ability to calm him down when he is stressed. It is not easy because this behavior can go on for hours and even days, and yet, she has the patience with him--it is endearing both to myself and him to have someone in our corner, not judging us but helping us, with a smile, patience, understanding, and yes, love. My grandson has told me that he loves Lori. So a big shout out to Lori! Thank you and the rest of your staff for all you do for us.”
A KinderCare Grandma - KinderCare Parent
I would like to share with you my experience performing a summer enrichment program at your center recently. My audience was a group of about 25 children ages four to seven. The children were well-behaved, organized, and respectful. This does not happen by itself. It reflects on the quality and competency of the staff. The teachers wear many "hats" during the course of their day. A great child care teacher is a friend, role model, confidant, disciplinarian, and more. I rate the staff as exceptional.”
