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.
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.
Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)
A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.
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.
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

Danielle R. - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare - Avery Road does a wonderful job. They always greet us with a smile. Mr. Chuck and Mr. John do a fabulous job with our son. They make learning fun. This is the first daycare that our son hasn't complained about going too. We have been to a few daycare center over the last 20 years and KinderCare has been the best! A daycare can advertise about their facility but it is the teachers that make a daycare great. Cindi does a wonderful job with her staff. J. & B. M.”
Jim & Becky M. - KinderCare Parent
I love Cindi! She always goes the extra mile to make sure her families are satisfied. My son has been at the center since 2007. I will do anything to keep him attending the center once he starts Kindergarten because of the close relationships established over the years. Cindi has addressed all my concerns and was there for our family through personal times. Ms. Crystal has babysat for me after hours because of my work schedule. All the staff goes above and beyond to be there for the children. I couldn't ask for a better center for my son to attend. J.M.”

You are always so professional, caring, and friendly to us parents and warm to the kids. Our son adores you, and my husband and I have been so please with the way you run your center. You deserve thanks for all you do for the parents and the kids. Thank you! We love the Avery Road KinderCare.”
