Welcome to Marlborough KinderCare

Welcome to Marlborough KinderCare! We’re located on Boston Post Road in Marlborough, Massachusetts. As a team of early education specialists, we value each opportunity to encourage children’s questions and foster their development. We believe that a whole child is a happy child and consistently strive to meet the individual needs of our children. Every day, our staff works hard to help children develop confidence for life!

We’re proud of the industry-leading health and safety measures we’ve put in place to protect your family and our staff. And, if you need distance learning support for elementary school kids, grade K-6, we’re here for you. Contact our center director to learn more. We can’t wait to see you soon!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • My two girls have been attending KinderCare since they were infants. The staff and center are amazing. The teachers become like a second family. I don't think the team gets enough credit they are exceptional! They've been extremely accommodating to my youngest with food allergies and eczema and are always ready for the newest thing we can throw at them! They are understanding and compassionate they do what they do with love. It's really true it does take a village to raise a child or perhaps just a fantastic KinderCare  team! Love all my KinderCare family!

  • We have been happy with KinderCare for the past eight years. My kids always came home happy and excited about their day which is a great feeling for a working mom. The director is always willing to work with us and many teachers have been there for a long time; it feels so close to our hearts. The meals are healthy and the school has structure which my kids need! I can't recommend a better day care than KinderCare. I am always greeted by a friendly face and treated with kindness. As a family, we feel very fortunate to have found such great care for our son and daughter.

    Syamala A. - KinderCare Parent
  • I love all the great activities you do with the kids. It really makes me feel like I am giving my kids the best advantage possible with their early education. The things my children are able to learn are so beyond what I could teach or a home daycare could ever try to replicate. I never had any early childhood education, so I did not know what to expect when we joined. I just hoped for a few craft projects to post on my refrigerator here and there. I never expected my kids would have curriculum! Play in water! Even Valencia! And now I have birthday cards for Papi, Mothers day and Father's day cards and art a few times a week from Gabriel. And I get a photo of him actually making the art! Gabriel's vocabulary has skyrocketed. He knows all sorts of new songs, and he is even counting to 13Š. He knows weather- it's honestly incredible. I am a raving fan and I have to tell you how happy I am my children are in your center.

    Erin T. - KinderCare Parent
  • I had my doubts when I thought about choosing a right Preschool for my kids. The first center that came to mind was KinderCare. I have worked at KinderCare a long time ago. My kids love to go to school every morning, and when we pick them up, they refuse to leave. That is a really good sign that the school is one of the best out there. Mr. Marshall is my son's teacher and we just love him so much. He is a really good teacher and my son looks up to him so much. Ms. Carly and Ms. Sara are my daughter’s teachers. She also loves them. They are great, and I am thankful my children are being cared by such good teachers. We will never forget their first teachers. Thank you all the staff for all the amazing care you guys give to my kids and all others.

    Amanda M. - KinderCare Parent
  • KinderCare in Marlborough is such a fabulous center. The staff is always so nice and the teachers are great! I truly feel very safe every day leaving my kids (2 and 4) there. We have been a KinderCare family since my son was an infant and have always trusted that both of my kids are having fun and learning. I can't say enough good things about it.
