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.
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.)
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo. Qué pasa?
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
When it comes to school my daughter Sophia has been so excited and loves to see her friends and be in Mr. Peter's class. Sophia reminds me that she needs to be at school by 930 so that she is on time for Circle time. Sophia loves to tell me the days of the week, the month and what year it is! She has such a wonderful connection with Mr. Peter that is evident when he greets us at drop off time in the morning. As her mom, to see my daughter coming into her own, and so happy, it makes me feel great and most of all comfortable. I can't speak highly enough about KinderCare. I have to say thank you to Amy for accommodating Sophia and myself and for being so kind. It is refreshing to see smiling faces in the morning or when your picking up your child. I was also given flash cards by Mr. Peter. He made it clear that it is not suppose to be an assignment that puts pressure on the child but it is good to learn and go through the words. Well, my daughter took it and ran with it!! There were 5 words, 1 word on each card. She is able to say the word and put them into sentences. I love seeing her learn and I thought it was a great idea. Every day Sophia lets me know when it's "homework" time! I just wanted to let you know how your facility is a great fit for my daughter. Thank you again!”

My husband and I couldn't be happier with the experience we have had with our son over the past year at KinderCare. As working parents, this center made the transition for me back to work after just a few weeks very smooth and comforting, knowing he was in good hands. Every day since, we drop off our son and he is super excited to see his friends in their classroom and recently the activity room! The daily feedback and constant communication between the teachers and parents have given us the ease and comfort to never have to worry about him while we are working and know he is in a place that is educating him both socially and mentally. The center is constantly changing things up and doing special events and programs that make each day unique and special. They always remember milestones and birthdays and send home keepsake artwork pieces that we will treasure forever. We feel truly lucky to have found such an amazing place to bring our child and feel 100% comfortable each day we drop him off and when we see his smiling face when we pick him up. Thank you so much to the fantastic & talented infant teachers for all your hard work & everything you do for our families.”

Any time I have come to Ms. Amy Ms. Candace with a concern, they immediately take action. It's comforting knowing that they really listen and react to feedback.”
Wendy M. - KinderCare Parent
It's never easy to drop your baby off at daycare for the first time, but leaving our daughter with the caring and devoted staff at KinderCare made this transition so much easier. Now looking back we can't believe it's been almost two years since we dropped her off for the first time and how much she has grown since then because of the love, caring and support of all her teachers.”
Tim and Cristina S. - KinderCare Parent
Our three-year-old was sad at her former preschool. We switched to Monroe KinderCare and worried that the transition would be tough, but we needn’t have worried. Our girl has loved KinderCare from the first day. They treat her with respect, and give her autonomy, guidance, and both creative and energy outlets suitable for her age. Our whole family is happier now.”
Lisa F. - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare is an amazing place for kids. The team here is very friendly and they always make sure that the kids are happy and comfortable. At the same time, the kids excel academically. My 18-month-old has been going here for the past three months and he can sing nursery rhymes, sing his ABC song, identify all the animals and their sounds, all parts of the body and many more. I have noticed a tremendous change in his vocabulary. He is always looking forward to go to the daycare, which is the best part. I used to call to check on him three times a day in his previous daycare but here, I don't even bother checking on him because I know he is in the best hands. Ms. Amy, the center director, and Ms. Candace, the assistant center director, are two wonderful ladies. They have always accommodated our needs. A special thanks goes to my son's teacher Ms. Veronica for taking such a good care of him. If I can give more than five stars to this place, I'd gladly do it!”
Harini G. - KinderCare Parent
I wanted to thank you and the staff at Kinder Care for being so wonderful to Ronald. Even though he was there only one day a week, I truly feel he benefited from his experience. He was always excited to go to school his one day and I feel he enjoyed being around everyone at KinderCare.”
Giovanna B. - KinderCare Parent
I love that my son Ben goes to KinderCare. It is a place where you feel safe dropping your child off. The staff is great with the kids and extremely professional. I would recommend KinderCare to anyone.”
