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.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care 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. 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!
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.
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!
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!”
Harry S. - KinderCare Parent
“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. - KinderCare Parent
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!”
