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)
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.
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.
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.)
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!
Whenever you leave your child with someone else while at work, there are a number of worries/concerns: •Is my child safe? •Is my child happy? •Is my child learning? KinderCare covers these concerns and more. The combination of a structure that the center offers with one-on-one attention from the teachers works very well. The curriculum keeps challenging him and he is definitely progressing with his letters and numbers. Although it is a larger center, the teachers know all the children by name, and our son is treated like an individual. His teachers know what works for him and are very flexible to meet his needs. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about KinderCare.”
Tom B. - KinderCare Parent
My husband and I are so happy with our choice of daycare. It is a great feeling watching our son run to his teacher every morning to give her a big hug, and to see all the things he learned while "playing" with his friends. Thank you.”
Katherine T. - KinderCare Parent
As a grandmother with years of child care experience, I can attest to the high standards of excellence at Premier Lane KinderCare in Menomonee Falls. Ms. Gina Marx leads a wonderful, caring staff that has nurtured our granddaughter for over two years. She has been every fortunate to participate in many unique and special learning experiences with the loving guidance of many wonderful teachers. Our granddaughter especially enjoyed taking Cooking and Phonics classes in addition to the regular curriculum. The fantastic summer program consists of many enriching, themed activities, with special guests adding to the fun of learning by doing. This approach allows each and every child to establish a strong foundation to grow into a confident and caring person. Thank you so much, KinderCare staff.”
Monica E. - KinderCare Parent
My three-year-old has had some speech and behavioral issues in the past, which makes moving to different daycare centers difficult. Ms. Julie has been the best teacher our daughter and family could ever have. She immediately bonded with our daughter, encouraged her potty training, and encouraged her learning on a daily basis. Our daughter loves Ms. Julie, as do we.”
Jennifer V. - KinderCare Parent
Our daughter enjoys all her friends at Premier Lane KinderCare most of all. Teachers and classmates bring a smile to her face every day. She has learned so much and has become a social butterfly. The staff and other families have been great to us. The teaching and sensory projects are great; we try to reinforce what she learns in school at home. As long as our daughter is happy, we are too!”
Kareeda C. - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare has been a wonderful, life-opening experience. I feel my child is in a safe, secure, and clean environment. He is learning academically to get him ready for school. The teachers and staff have been professional, pleasant, helpful, easy to talk to, and are very willing to work with me on changing developments as my child grows. I am very pleased and would recommend KinderCare to anyone seeking child care.”
