Moore KinderCare 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.
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.
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.
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 to develop vocabulary and conversation skills. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts, and pets, as well as how to engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.
“ Thank you, Moore KinderCare, for supporting me and my nephew in our search of a school that would be a place for him to feel safe, but also to learn and make new friends. He has struggled with social skills and coming in and seeing him with new friends has made it easy for me to go to work.Show more
“ I just want to start out by saying how much I love the staff at Moore KinderCare. I have two children who attend and my youngest had a hard time adjusting at first, but Ms. Cindy and her team worked hard to gain his trust. Now he doesn't want to leave and they continue to love him and treat his as their own. As for my oldest child, we had been struggling with potty training. Her teacher, Ms. Tia, worked with me and my child to get her potty trained. I would recommend KinderCare in Moore to anyone looking for child care.Show more
“ Our two boys currently attend Moore KinderCare, and our baby girl will soon be attending as well. We first came to this center when our oldest son was about four years old. He was being removed from another daycare center up the street due to behavioral issues. At that time, we were just beginning to address his behavioral issues medically and we did not really know what we were dealing with, only that he was an extremely difficult child. The other center he was at informed us that, although they knew we were working with him, they couldn't continue to deal with him. When we first met with the Director of this center, Cindy Fletcher, to tour the facility and discuss enrollment, she was very understanding regarding our concerns about our son, and stated that they would be willing to work with him. I was amazed at how she did not seem alarmed or hesitant to enroll him based on what we shared with her. He was later diagnosed with ADHD. Ms. Cindy and her team have really gone out of their way to work with him. They understand that he is not a normal little boy, that he prefers to be spoken to like an adult, and that he does not respond well to every personality. They have worked with him and flexed to his needs many times--whether it be bringing in a teacher from another class that he responds well to, or simply taking the time to learn how to re-direct him. They have been able to help him overcome most of his challenges. We have never asked them for special treatment, but we have not had to. Ms. Cindy and her staff have just been willing to do what they needed to do in order to make every day a success for both of our boys. Since day one, they have treated us more like a family than just people who bring their kids there every day for child care. We will always recommend this center to anyone in need of child care.Show more

When it comes to deciding on a child care center, we know there’s nothing quite like hearing from other families! Hear what Becky has to say about being a part of the KinderCare community:
“As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at KinderCare every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. The teachers and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son has been blessed with awesome teachers who understand his challenges, and handle him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day at "school!" Thank you to the KinderCare child care organization for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day, and a special thanks to Karen and her staff; they continue to do amazing works of ‘heart’ with all children.”
