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.
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.)
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.

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!
Our daughter began her early education experience at KinderCare around 6 months of age. Since joining, she has been enrolled for the past two years. We have been so fortunate with all the teachers that she has had at the Hatboro center. Each one has been so caring and loving. Their joy of caring for children is evident in the many interactions we observe and in the way our daughter talks about her teachers – often telling us she loves them! It is apparent that our daughter feels safe, secure, loved, and encouraged during her days here. Through her excellent teachers, the KinderCare teachings are present. We are amazed at the songs she sings, the colors she learns, and the shapes she knows! She can also spell her name! Not only do the teachers instill knowledge, but general awareness and good behavior. In these ways they are also excellent partners in our daughter's upbringing as we seek to reinforce these at home. We look forward to her future years here!”
Alexis - KinderCare Parent
Hatboro Kindercare is an ideal daycare. The teachers are engaging, kind, immediately responsive, and promote a sense of fun and self-confidence we could not have imagined. Our son, Jack began leaping into the teachers arms at dropoff and jumping into play time with friends. We could not be happier. The facilities are always impeccably clean, and are bright and open so the kids always feel close to the outdoors. They provide all the food -- healthy snacks and lunch -- which encourages the kids to eat different things and join their peers. When my 22 month old said 'I want broccoli' I was ecstatic! The director and assistant directors are absolutely wonderful. They communicate immediately about events, any sickness, and special issues with your child. The directors know each child personally and make them feel important. In addition, they plan school events (cook out at the park, back to school night, graduation, etc.) that build a sense of community. The staff work with children on potty training at their tiny toddler-sized potties (adorable!) and create a supportive environment. This is such a warm and happy environment and it is a gift every day to know my son is in such good hands. I am grateful.”
Carla - KinderCare Parent
My children, ages three and one, have been enrolled in Hatboro KinderCare for only nine months. When we started, I expected my children to be well cared for. What I didn't expect was the unbelievable amount of love and personal investment we have received from the entire team. Our appreciation for the program, teachers, staff & facility continue to grow. My children are excited to go to "school" and are greeted every morning with an excited hello! We have had amazing teachers from infants to preschool whom I feel genuinely care about the children. I love that I get a daily report telling me what my kids did during the day, how they slept & what they ate. We are also kept well informed of any changes throughout the building. After staying home with my kids for two years, choosing where and with who they will spend their day with was scary, but our expectations have far been exceeded and I couldn't be happier that we are a part of the KinderCare family.”
