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.
Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.
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!
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.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
The minute I walked in to the Langhorne KinderCare I knew it was the right place for my daughter and me. The staff is a caring group of individuals who love the kids they work with. They have the childrens' best interests at heart which is the underlying feeling of the center. The curriculum keeps the children interested, motivated and learning in multiple ways. The learning centers are exactly what the children need - learning through play! As a former elementary teacher, this is important to me for my daughter's early education.
I love that the outdoor areas are age appropriate to help little ones get their energy out! My daughter loves that she got to help create a garden with her friends and is looking forward to spring already so they can do it again. Summer camp is amazing! The activities are different enough from the school year yet continue to build on what the kids have learned.
Keeping children actively engaged all year takes a lot of hard work and dedication on the part of the teachers, assistant director & director of the center. That is part of what makes this center so amazing since this is not the case at every daycare center.
The friendliness of the other families and staff contribute to the positive vibe of the center I feel every time I walk in, even at 5:59 PM. Over the past year and a half the staff and families of the Langhorne KinderCare center have become part of our extended family, our village has grown and we are better for it.”

My daughter, Cassandra has been attending Kindercare since she was 3 months old. They are extremely caring, which alleviates worry especially for a first time mom. They help her achieve her milestones and keep me up to date with her progress. Cassandra enjoys her time at Kindercare and for that I am grateful.”
Laura - KinderCare Parent
Last year, when my wife and I were first looking at daycare for our three-year old daughter, we looked at many schools and daycare centers. We weren't too impressed with any of them until we met with Ms. Natalie, the center director, and Ms. Becky, the assistant director of KinderCare in Langhorne. Right from the start, we felt comfortable with them and the teachers we met. We got the feeling that our daughter would be well looked after and would learn a lot. They even gave us a free trial day to see if she would be happy at the center. She came home happier than we had ever seen! After she had attended for three months, we started our six week-old son. We continue to be very satisfied with the staff and level of care and attention that they receive. Both children are very happy when we walk them through the door. My wife and I receive daily reports on their activities, what they learned, and we get calls immediately if they are not feeling well. For any parent in the area, I would definitely recommend considering Langhorne's KinderCare Center.”

My daughter has been at the Langhorne KinderCare since she was three months old and I am beyond pleased with their care for her. The staff is professional, knowledgeable and above all caring. As a parent you want to know that your child is receiving the highest quality care but you also want to feel like her caregivers are genuinely invested in her development. At Langhorne KinderCare my daughter is thriving! She is almost two now and Langhorne KinderCare is like a home away from home for her. Sometimes when I come to pick her up she doesn't want to leave!”
