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.
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.
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. Kids in this delightful and delicious program 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! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It 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.)
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. Your child will experiment with activities like learning how lemon juice and baking soda interact to uncover secret messages, watching fizzy reactions in action, and discovering how to use technology to do amazing things!
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My daughter attended this KinderCare for preschool. The women there are absolutely amazing! They truly care about not only the children there, but the whole family as well. I was very nervous about putting my daughter in a daycare but they made me feel very comfortable and within a month we felt like family. When I moved and started a new job in the opposite direction I made the half hour commute to the facility to keep my daughter there.<br /> My daughter left KinderCare and started Kindergarten more than prepared for the classroom. With the help of Miss. Terry she had scored above her grade level in reading, writing and math. Miss. Terry cares about each individual child and never minded when I had a million questions. She always made it a point to pull me aside and let me know how my daughter was doing. She wasn't just a babysitter, she really got to know my daughter and would notify my immediately when she wasn't herself.<br /> <br /> I really can't say enough about how amazing this place is. I obviously highly recommend it!
Amanda - KinderCare Parent
My son has been apart of Kinder Care Livonia since he was 15 months old. I have to admit that when I was looking for daycare centers to place my son, it was a stressful task. I was coming from a difficult situation where I was forced back into the workforce and forced to give up my son to daycare. I was nervous, upset, and really unwilling to place my son, but at the same time, I had no choice. My initial reaction to daycare was negative, to say the least. Why would I give up my beautiful and darling son to people I don't know, doing God knows what, and teach my son God knows what things. However, due to my circumstance, I had to begin my search. I really stumbled upon Kinder Care by accident, and to this day, I'm so grateful for that accident. I have never met such amazing people. Ms. Katie and Ms. Maureen have been kind, respectful, helpful, and just overall amazing. All of my son's teachers have been amazingly loving. He was never without anything, which was my biggest fear. They cared for him and showered him with praise and encouragement. Soon, I began to realize little things, like my son saying his numbers and letters and he's not even two! He's singing songs and he's extremely happy. He's never far away from love, excitement, and new experiences. I cannot express in words how much my son has learned and experienced in the past year, and I don't ever regret putting him here. Picking Kinder Care as the place to put my son five days a week for 40 plus hours, was one of the best decisions I have never made. It was not to my son's disadvantage, but he has advanced in ways that I could not have done on my own. I have full confidence that you will find that these women are capable and go above and beyond for all the children, especially mine! :)
