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.
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.
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.

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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I am writing this letter to share with you my thoughts and personal experiences regarding the care my child receives while attending this KinderCare location. Before my daughter's enrollment at KinderCare, I was hesitant to leave her with "strangers." It wasn't until she was two when I suddenly needed daycare. This situation was new to me and I was reluctant. It did not take long for the staff to change my opinion. We have been with KinderCare now for about three-and-a-half years now. I wouldn't go anywhere else. She was originally here for all-day care. She is now here for before and after school care; it doesn't matter, she is always greeted with a warm smile from a familiar face. Everyone here knows her name, and no one is a stranger. When she is being dropped-off or picked-up from school, she is with someone we both trust and that gives me comfort. Ms. Alicia and Ms. Chrisana have chosen an amazing staff. Everyone here is friendly, approachable and extremely patient. I don't know how they do it sometimes, but I am so glad they do. It makes going to work a little easier knowing my daughter is well taken care of. Thanks so much KinderCare. I'm so glad I found you!”

Dear Teachers and Friends,
We wanted to share our deepest appreciation for all of your time and attention you have provided us over the years. We are saddened we will not be continuing to use your excellent services anymore. Our son went for a short time and participated in your after school program and our daughter has been attending for a little over four years. The warmth and sincere concern you have given us we will never forget. The time we spent with you has made us feel as if we were a part of your family.
There aren't enough words that will ever express our gratitude in helping us care for our children. The most influential years of our daughter's life has been spent with you and we are proud with what she has learned. We feel confident she will carry wonderful memories from her experiences the rest of her life. We are sure she will have no problems adjusting to the kindergaten curriculum or have any social skill issues because of what she has been taught here over the years.
Not only have you been a great support system to our children but also to us. Thank you for working with us. Being a parent is challenging but even more so when you don't have extended family to lean on from day to day. We are fortunate our community has your facilities around to give us that extra support and employees who are real life Angels in our lives. We will miss you very much and wish you many more blessing besides the little miracles that attend your facilities everyday.”
