AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

KinderCare Learning Center at South Dade Programs

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.

Our Teachers

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.

Family Stories

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • Being a first time mom I wanted the best for my daughter. Which was why we choose for me to stay home to raise her until it was time for her to venture into the world of school. Since my husband works at Turkey Point, we knew there was a daycare on site but didn't know anything about it. The convenience of having our daughter close to her father in case on an emergency was the deciding factor. That alone was the reason we didn't even consider any other daycare. Looking back, we feel EXTREMELY lucky to have made that decision. When our daughter started with KinderCare at South Dade, she had just turned three years old, I was very nervous about her being without me (like I'm sure all new parents are). The teacher and the children in the K3 class made her feel so welcome, and had her smiling and laughing right away. Soon, the quality of the center became very evident, and I could no longer classify them as a daycare, they are an Early Learning School. We noticed our daughter was learning very fast and seemed to be advanced for her age. Which was also noticed by the staff. When the opportunity came up for a student to move from K3 to K4 (in the VPK class) towards the end of the school year, the Director, Anita Johnson, along with the teachers, recommended my daughter be the one to advance. They were very right. With the AMAZING teacher, Mrs. Tuwanna, my daughter was able to do parts of the VPK curriculum throughout the last part of that year. Which in turn gave her a little bit of a head start when she actually started VPK the following year. The results of the effort and dedication of the OUTSTANDING VPK teacher duo, Mrs. Tuwanna and Mrs. Gloria – my daughter aced her final assessment with exceeding all expectations. I can't tell you how proud that made me. I can not thank these wonderful ladies of this school enough for the gift they have given my daughter. Not every child is lucky enough to have such quality early education. To be able to show a little bit of my appreciation I accepted the role of head of the Parent Support Group. Being self employed allowed me the flexibility to be available whenever help was needed. But no amount of volunteering, event organizing, party planning, craft creating, or fundraising can EVER show how truly grateful I am for the impact they have made, not only on my daughter's life, but on mine as well.
