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.
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.
Moorpark 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.
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!
Interactive Kindergarten (5–6 Years)
Kindergarten is a critical year for young learners. Experienced KinderCare teachers will tap into your child’s natural curiosity to help get them even more prepared for elementary school. Our engaging lessons make the most of current technology while offering plenty of hands-on play and exploration.
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.
Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program
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.)
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover 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!
When looking for the right daycare I toured a few different places. When I toured KinderCare I felt the love and compassion the teachers and staff had for the kids. When I met my daughter's teacher, I was very pleased! After about a month, when my daughter got into the routine of everything, she was so happy when we got to her “school”. My daughter has made so many friends in multiple classrooms and as soon as we walked in the door everyone welcomes her by name.
As a first time mom that was so special to me because I knew I picked the right place for my daughter to go to school. She has developed so much since her first week there and I am so happy to see her LOVE her teachers! My daughter talks about her teacher, Ms.Samantha, to everyone she meets and that’s so special to me because I can tell how much of an impact she has on her. Her teachers not only love her, get to know her and accommodate to her needs but they’ve made an impact to get to know me as well. My daughter has made a special bond with Ms.Samantha. The teachers at KinderCare have gone above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend KinderCare to anyone!”
Megan H. - KinderCare Parent
Your center director Irina Artemyeva, and the assistant director Danielle Goodnight are a credit to your organization. My son has been attending KinderCare since he was four months old. He will be two this month. I have seen nothing but positive changes in him since he started. I absolutely give credit to KinderCare for his excelled interest in words, numbers, songs, and manners! He comes home from school with a new story every day, tales to tell, songs to sing, and never forgets a "please" or "thank you." And while I'd love to say it's as a result of my exceptional parenting, I have to give credit to the people who have him with them for more hours of the day than I do. I'm stunned by the intensive intellectual expectations placed on the students and KinderCare, and yet they absolutely pay off. When my daughter was six weeks old, we began her at KinderCare because we felt that the learning opportunity she would have had already been demonstrated with our son. She is almost eight months old now, and painting pictures, recognizing things that we wouldn't have expected, and we are thrilled with her progress. I want you to hear from a parent of two KinderCare students, we believe the Moorpark KinderCare to be of the absolute highest level. With two kids at KinderCare, we will spend about $32,000 with your organization this year alone. And we don't question the value of your services for a second. Our absolute gratitude to you for recognizing the strengths of Ms. Irina, Ms. Danielle, and for supporting them in the placing of the exceptional caregivers. Our infants have adored Ms. Stormy and Ms. Tara, and we have grown into Ms. Sandra and Ms. Oxana, and are thrilled that our little boy soon gets to join all of his friends with Ms. Lauren. Your teachers are a credit to the organization, and we are proud to say that we are KinderCare Parents. I am always happy to give referrals, or just remind you that there are grateful parents out there. We thank you for providing an exceptional environment for our children.”
Leah - KinderCare Parent
I cannot say enough good things about Moorpark KinderCare! The center director, Irina, and the assistant director Sandra are awesome! They anticipate the needs of the parents and children. Actually all of the teachers there are amazing! I have two little boys (almost three and five years old) that have attended this site for a couple of years. The curriculum is great, and my kids always come home happy. I work full time, and so the boys spend almost 10 hours a day there.
With Moorpark Kindercare my children are learning new things every day, growing vegetables, learning science, sight words, phonics, writing, sensory tables, imaginary play, and so much more all while having fun! And summertime care consists of water play days, shows, petting zoos, treats, face painting, magic shows, super hero visits and more. The teachers there have become an extension of our family and my children’s overall upbringing. I trust KinderCare Moorpark wholeheartedly and would highly recommend them to anyone in the area with young children.
My oldest has recently entered kindergarten, and I didn't trust anyone else but KinderCare for his after-school care; so, I transferred him out of our school district into the Moorpark School District just so he could stay at KinderCare after school. Irina was instrumental in going above and beyond in helping me with the district transfer, and organizing a special bus pick up for him since transitional kindergarten gets out a little earlier the regular school-age kids for the first three weeks.
All in all, you have a very special team at Moorpark KinderCare.”
