Welcome to Woodfield Crossing KinderCare

Welcome to Woodfield Crossing KinderCare, located in the heart of Indianapolis, Indiana. Our center is devoted to creating a home away from home for the children in our community, and smiles and laughter exude through our classrooms as our teachers truly enjoy the differences they are making. We build a warm, welcoming, and supportive classroom for children of all abilities, backgrounds, and experiences. It's our mission from the moment you walk into our center that you feel welcomed and a part of our KinderCare family!

We’re proud of the industry-leading health and safety measures we’ve put in place to protect your family and our staff. And, if you need distance learning support for elementary school kids, grade K-6, we’re here for you. Contact our center director to learn more. We can’t wait to see you soon!


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.

Our 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.

Elementary School Distance Learning

Healthy bodies, happy hearts, growing minds. We make distance learning easy on your whole family! Our teachers are trained to facilitate safe and dynamic learning experiences online and in-person. 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!

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.)


Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language to develop vocabulary and conversation skills. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts, and pets, as well as how to engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

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!

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.

Meet just a few of our amazing KinderCare teachers!


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.

Our Families

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

  • My husband and I have been very pleased with the learning and development that our daughter has achieved while being enrolled at KinderCare at Woodfield Crossing. She is also developing socialization skills that is proven with her engagement with the other children. I know that her teacher cares for her and is committed to her learning and care. This is demonstrated not only through interaction and activities and projects that she brings home and but also through our daily reports and regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

  • As a single mother, my daughter, Reya, is my entire world. I am a self-proclaimed “hover-mom” who puts her first at all costs. After only two days at her previous day care, I pulled her out immediately and had a bleak outlook on childcare in general. Being a teacher requires me to put in long hours at work so I realized that I would, inevitably, have to find another facility for my child. Reluctantly, I made appointments with ten daycares and planned to visit them all before making my decision. KinderCare at Woodfield Crossing was my first stop. The director, Shannon, greeted me with a warm smile and I immediately felt at ease. Within a few moments, I could sense the family-feel of the center and undeniable love for children. My daughter, Reya, instantly started playing and I could tell she was comfortable already. I knew that I would be canceling nine appointments. My mind was made up. Shannon and her staff have been phenomenal. Reya cries when she has to leave because she enjoys it so much. She has grown very attached to all of the staff members and loves all of the opportunities KinderCare has to offer. Whether it’s music class with Noel, learning to walk with Stephanie or having breakfast with Cambella, Reya is all smiles! I affectionately call Shannon Reya’s “school mommy” because their relationship is so close and loving. Candace and Reya have a special bond as well, always cracking each other up. Reya’s infant teacher, Stephanie, was patient and kind when Reya first arrived; there were always laughs and snuggles. Reya has now graduated into the “Tiny Tots” room with Amy and she is on cloud nine! Amy’s lessons are creative and innovative. She never hesitates to extend on the curriculum, even if it means researching or bringing items from home. Amy puts her heart and soul in everything she does. I cannot say enough positive words about the staff at Woodfield Crossing. I am not an easy person to impress, but… with tears rolling down my cheeks, I will say that I am not only impressed, I am in awe of these women. I can honestly say that they know my child, love her and have her best interest at heart. That means the world to me.

  • I'm excited about the care of my son at KinderCare. He's in a clean environment, with teachers that care and adore the children deeply. He's fed according to his schedule and very happy when I pick him up. The staff and children in the class are always happy and it's a pleasant feeling in the room. I wouldn’t dream of taking my son anywhere else other than the Woodfield Crossing KinderCare!

    Anthony H. - KinderCare Parent
  • My daughter has recently relocated to the Woodfield Crossing KinderCare location. The teachers have done such a great job helping us adapt to our new environment! They are welcoming and make every day an educational experience for her. We love working on the homework together that her teachers send home once a month!
