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!

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 unexpectedly found myself this past November looking for daycare for my grandchildren. It had been a long time since I had looked into Preschool and daycare settings and I was at a loss as where to start. I called my local KinderCare and spoke to the director who took a great deal of time answering my questions and relieving my anxiety about placing my very young grandchildren in daycare. The director stayed in contact with me while I investigated all my options and then welcomed us all warmly into her center. I continue to be amazed at the care and concern expressed by all the staff at this center, even those who do not directly work with my grandchildren. Each and every person I have encountered has shown such kindness to me and my grandchildren that I no longer worry about them while they are at KinderCare. My grandchildren are very happy and well cared for and I could not be happier. Thank you to all the KinderCare staff for providing a safe, loving and supportive learning environment for my grandchildren. You have been a blessing in my life and the lives of my grandchildren.

  • The KinderCare teachers and staff have become part of our “family” whom we trust and rely on to help our daughter grow and develop. From the directors down to the wonderfully energetic and patient teachers, you have the sense that there are strong lines of communication between the entire team. That strong team structure translates to an incredibly nurturing environment. Our daughter has been enrolled since she was three months old and we have seen her grow and develop cognitively, physically and socially in ways we could have never achieved alone. She genuinely loves her teachers and friends, and we see her blossoming in countless ways. We have also been impressed with the way staff manages to treat each individual child to their needs. When our daughter was in the infant room, she had some special needs with both her diet and some daily activities to help stretch and strengthen certain muscles in her back and the staff happily worked with us to make sure her care from home to KinderCare and back was as seamless as possible. We are so grateful and appreciative of the love and care they have provided. When I was making the decision for my daughter’s care, I visited six centers in our area and the Lisle KinderCare was heads above the rest. Clean, innovative, backed by sound educational and safety principals and practices and very service-orientated. I have recommended this center to many friends and to anyone who is looking for a safe, clean, engaging environment for your child.

  • We have had a wonderful experience with KinderCare in Lisle. I have a three year old daughter that had never been in a daycare or preschool situation, I was a stay at home mom. When my life changed and I needed daycare the staff at KinderCare made things easy for me. My daughter absolutely loves it, and if she is home a couple of days can't quit asking when she gets to go back. I really can't say enough good things about them.
