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.
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.
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. 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.
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!
My daughter is in the Pre-K class and I wanted to express how happy my husband and I are with the staff, curriculum and overall friendly/loving environment which our daughter has benefited from. In particular, I wanted to thank Sidney the director, Tiffany the phonics tutor and our daughter’s teacher Mrs.Deedee. Thank you so much for making our daughters preschool experience so memorable!!”

My child is in the Toddler room at this location and his teachers are very good at communicating when it comes to his day and if he needs any supplies, etc. I also love the art that they make in his class and the pictures that his teachers post of him creating the art.”
Parent - KinderCare Parent
I loved how caring, welcoming and loving the Infant teachers were with my son. They always asked me if I had any special instructions for the day and they always greeted him with a hug in the morning and smile on their faces. I love Ms. Jenepher and Ms. Shabina and I would recommend the Infant room at this center to new parents.”

The Silverbrook KinderCare is always clean and smells nice. The managers are always available for you to speak with and the teachers are super friendly and caring. Both of my grandchildren have attended since they were infants and we have had wonderful experiences at this location. I would recommend this center to new families!”
Vizzinni - KinderCare Parent
I have had my children in this center for over two years now. I love how the teachers communicate to me on a daily basis and how loving that they all are. I have not had any issues or concerns while attending at this center. I love the management staff, they are always there during both drop off and pick up to greet my children. I would recommend this center to new families in need of care.”
Parent - KinderCare Parent
My three year old begs me to come to school on the weekends so he can see his friends and teachers. The welcoming environment is so apparent as this school. I have seen a considerable difference in my son's knowledge and behaviors over the past year. I love how the teachers care and treat my child like he is their own! Thank you Silverbrook KinderCare for being so amazing!”
Parent - KinderCare Parent
I interviewed about 15 daycare providers in the Lorton, VA, area and I am so happy and reassured daily that I chose KinderCare! I absolutely love how they take care of my two little ones! The teachers and managing staff are always at the daycare with smiles and positive attitudes! I love that I can call anytime and know the status of my kiddos and what they are up to. KinderCare has fun teaching themes in the classrooms monthly, special pajama days, and breakfast/dinner for families. The best part is the take-home artwork, pictures, and my smiling kiddos at the end of every day. We love KinderCare!”
Jennifer S. - KinderCare Parent
I wanted to send a huge thank you to the staff of KinderCare off south run rd. My 3 year old son has been going to KinderCare since 18 most old and he is now potty trained and thriving. He has a second home there with many loving hands, smiling faces and warm hugs. I am so happy with my decision to bring him there and going back to work full-time was easier with the peace of mind I got with him being there. Thank you!!”
