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.

SCHOOL-READY

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.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare partners with Child Care Aware® of America to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and flexible support to fit their needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

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!

Music Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)

KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Kids will learn to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. Our original curriculum 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.)

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!

Our Families

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

  • I love this center and so do all my children. I know my children are safe and happy here when i cant be with them. The staff is amazing especially Mrs. Brenda she is a truly wonderful all the time. I was initially concerned about care for special needs son, not anymore they take GREAT care of him. When you walk in you can fell the love they have for all the children. My children have been to a few centers before but none like this one.

    Charlene M. - KinderCare Parent
  • My son started at this center in August 2013. Since he has been here, he has became an open book. His teacher, Ms. Brenda has taught him so many things and how to express himself better than ever before. I am so thankful to have Ms Brenda and the other teachers, who are a part of his learning adventures. This is the best learning center, so I would recommend anyone to bring their child here. 

    Deevia - KinderCare Parent
  • We enrolled our 8 month old son in to the Knightdale Kindercare in April of 2013. Our experience with the center and the staff has been nothing but positive. The infant room is cozy, yet spacious and the infant teachers, Ms.Lina and Ms. Christen, are wonderful. They are always very welcoming and attentive to the children. The Center Director, Courtney, is fabulous! She is readily available to assist parents with questions and always has a smile on her face. Each morning, when my son enters his classroom he lights up, further reassuring me choosing the Knightdale Kindercare was a great decision for our family.

    Amy - KinderCare Parent
  • Since this is our first time being parents, the idea of dropping off our infant at daycare filled us with stress and anxiety. We feel so lucky to have the support and care of all of the staff at KinderCare Knightdale to help me through that transition. The infant teachers show such special attention to each of the babies and our daughter has already shown such positive growth in the two months she has been attending. The constant feedback we receive from the teachers and the daily notes that are sent home makes us feel well informed and a part of her day. We couldn't be happier with our decision to enroll our daughter here!

    Jenny and Ken - KinderCare Parent
  • I have been a part of the Kinder Care family since 2010. On my first visit I knew instantly this was the day care for me. I dropped off my then six month old daughter and did not have any concern about her well-being in the capable hands of the staff. My oldest is now three and her sister who is two also attends Kinder Care and has been there since she was four months old. The staff is warm, friendly, caring and nurturing. The staff loves my girls and my girls love them.

    Norlynda - KinderCare Parent
  • My son has been going to KinderCare since 2010. Since the day I dropped him off with Ms. Lina, almost four years ago, I have never had to worry about him, because I know he is in excellent hands. He is now in Ms. Brenda's amazing Preschool class and she is out of this world. I have never met a more enthusiastic and energetic teacher and, being a teacher myself, I have met a lot! The Director, Ms. Courtney has been nothing but helpful and supportive through the years. When I've had questions or concerns in the past she listened and took action. I truly feel that my son is loved, adored and nurtured by all of the staff members (even the cook)!
