Londonderry KinderCare 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.
Kindergarten Programs (5–6 Years)
Welcome to kindergarten: the gateway to grade school and everything that comes next! Offered in select centers, our kindergarten programs have small class sizes and curriculums that mix learning and fun. The basic building blocks of reading, writing, math, and science are key in kindergarten, so we make sure they get lots of practice in all of these areas.
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.
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!
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover how to use technology to do amazing things!
“ We have spent a great amount of time as a part of the Kindercare family, and our children have been enrolled in the Londonderry Kindercare Learning Center for years now. The center teachers and staff are absolutely amazing and have always made us feel like family, and also have become a part of our family. That says a lot, and isn't something I throw around too lightly. The center director, Linda, has been putting in the hours and going out of her way to ensure the families of Kindercare are put first and always made to feel individually special. No matter what comes her way, Linda does her best to consider every angle and handle each situation with care and special consideration. I appreciate the center's structure, but also the flexibility and ability to adapt to the needs of the children at any point. My children are never tasked with learning; they learn naturally in this environment through routines, and also playful activities that still encourage an extremely diverse learning plan. Thank you for all you do for us! Our family and the growth of our children does actually depend on you, and we welcome that from you!Show more
“ When faced with the daunting task of choosing a day care for my 12-week-old daughter, I looked at countless options in the local area. I kept hoping I would find a place that just felt right for her and for our family. When I walked into Londonderry KinderCare for the first time I got the feeling I’d been searching for. I just knew it was the place for us. Over two and a half years later, I am still so happy I chose this center for my daughter’s care. The center itself is clean and secure. The staff is warm, loving, accommodating, and extremely patient with the kids. I’ve gotten just as attached to my daughter’s teachers as she has. They really take an interest in each family. KinderCare has helped my daughter develop a sense of daily structure while fostering many important skills and personality traits. She is encouraged to explore her creativity, hone her gross and fine motor skills, and exercise her mind as well as imagination. At KinderCare I know the people caring for my child do this type of work because they love it. They bring a sense of joy and humor to every day. It gives me tremendous peace of mind to know that when I can’t be with my daughter she is in good hands at KinderCare. Caitlin M.Show more
“ I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for making KinderCare a special place for my daughter, Emma. Emma has been going to your center for two years; she started when she was 12 weeks old. Since then, her developmental growth has been outstanding. She has hit every milestone and exceeded in many areas due to the curriculum and teachers that work with her every day. Also, I want to thank you for your support, guidance and encouragement. I am a single working mother and at times have found the balance of work and raising a young child challenging. You and your staff have answered questions, calmed my anxieties and shown me how to take a step back and watch Emma in a different perspective so I could really enjoy the experiences she has at KinderCare with her. As I can never get time back, I can’t express how appreciative I am of these experiences. You and your staff care for Emma and I feel like we are connected as an extended family and not just a “daycare”. For me, this is invaluable. Thank you again for all that you do each day to make our lives exciting, happy and filled with growth!Show more

When it comes to deciding on a child care center, we know there’s nothing quite like hearing from other families! Hear what Becky has to say about being a part of the KinderCare community:
“As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at KinderCare every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. The teachers and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son has been blessed with awesome teachers who understand his challenges, and handle him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day at "school!" Thank you to the KinderCare child care organization for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day, and a special thanks to Karen and her staff; they continue to do amazing works of ‘heart’ with all children.”
