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.
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.

Our child has attended since 2014 and she loves attending. The teachers are wonderful with her she loves everyone of the teachers who have been there. We have been so happy with KinderCare!”
Elida & Ralph P. - KinderCare Parent
As new parents, we had no experience with daycares, but being loving parents, we knew what we expected. It was difficult for us to determine what location, what programs, and what overall experience we would want to have with our child care provider. We wanted a place that would be safe, educational, and an overall great place. We were looking for more than just a daycare--an extended family. It was at the Chouteau KinderCare that we found all of this and more. Our son and daughter are being cared for by people who truly care about them and want to see them succeed in life. We love to hear daily about the things that they are experiencing and learning. We appreciate that the teachers are actually teaching and not just "watching" them. We would not know what to do without our KinderCare family.”
Dan C. - KinderCare Parent
As a foster-to-adopt parent, there were a lot of ups and downs to the processes and challenges that come with such a responsibility. When we first started to think about taking the journey to foster to adopt, there was no question in our mind that we would send our children to our local KinderCare. Before we were placed with a child, we took the time to visit many unique child care facilities throughout our city, and hands down we never felt as welcomed as we were at our Chouteau and Parvin KinderCare. Our KinderCare family has been there for us from the beginning--from the first day we brought in our little 18-month-old son to the day we adopted him and his sister. Four years later, we can still count on our KinderCare family to be there for us. Next to bringing two little ones into our family, the choice of KinderCare has been an enriching decision. I am truly grateful for our center's love and support. I can trust them with our precious little ones as if I was leaving them with family, because they truly our members of ours.”
Terry C. - KinderCare Parent
My daughter was enrolled at KinderCare at six weeks old. I think this is one of the best decisions I have made. When it was time for her to go on to school, she was more than ready. KinderCare has a wonderful curriculum and passionate teachers to implement it. The fun "family feel" makes it easy to leave my daughter at KinderCare every day, as she is still enrolled in the school-age before- and after-school program. I couldn't imagine my daughter attending any other center.”
Anonymous - KinderCare Parent
My children have been attending KinderCare for three years. If you knew my children back then, you would know that they have come a long way. I believe part of it has to do with the staff and family at KinderCare. They worked with me and help my children feel safe and happy, even when they are hard to love. The staff is very caring and kind. I appreciate all of them and believe they are a part of my village. I couldn't do this without them.”
