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.

SCHOOL-READY

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.

Our 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.

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.)

Spanish

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.

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!

Our Teachers

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!

  • Ms Allison is a wonderful addition to the younger infant room at Kindercare. I was excited when her role changed into full time in that room because, similar to Ms Nilda, Ms Allision is able to expertly provide care for multiple babies. I have seen her sing songs and shake rattles to audiences of babies that were tired or hungry and change their moods for the better. Ms Allison has also provided suggestions to John and I to consider for Austin. In fact, it was Ms Allison who fed Austin his first baby food – while I sat beside her after explaining to her that he is very upset at the notion of eating food. She is always excited to see him, and I am always happy when she is working.

  • I am also really happy with Z's learning adventures. Z tells me about his time with Ms. Nilda. He spoke a complete 3 sentences to me in Spanish last week without me asking. And when his grandfather asked him to count to 5 last week we thought he would do in English we were happily surprised to hear it in Spanish! I appreciate that Ms. Nilda greets him in Spanish in the hallways to support the lessons.

  • When you put your kids in Ms Darlene's class you know they will learn not only the basics required for kindergarten; they will come out knowing how a well managed classroom is supposed to run. The kids understand what it means to be a good student with her and she never fails to answer any question they could ever ask. She gives the students a love for learning that cannot be measured. At the end of the year a parent can be confident that their child is ready for 1st grade anywhere on earth!

  • Ms. Donna is a caring and dedicated teacher for the preschool children at Kindercare. My son Jason is welcomed each morning upon his arrival with a caring hello, asking him questions about his day so far and talking about something on his shirt or so on. She is attentive and understanding of morning separation from a parent, especially in the case of my son. Jason restarted school earlier last month (September) after having the summer off and was very emotional. Her extra attention while holding him and trying to keep him upbeat while he was shedding tears takes strength and commitment and she does it so well and now he’s back on track and enjoying his days at school learning and playing with friends.
    As a side, when my daughter was in her class several years ago and going through a very intense love of princesses, she was sure to call her whichever princess she was that day and ask each day “ How is “Ariel, Belle”, etc. doing today.” Morgan always loved that and also enjoyed her time in that class.

  • Ms. Cathy knows how kids learn. She is able to motivate them and understands the way kids think. When you see her with your child you see a woman who completely gets what it like to have a 4 year old. She gets that they rationalize thoughts in ways adults cannot understand and she finds a way to relate to them. When I drop off my child with her I know that they will have a great day filled with special Ms. Cathy quips and humor. I also know they will come home knowing letters and concepts I am just unable to get them to understand.”

  • It is with great pleasure that I take the time to write you and let you know what a wonderful an experience we discovered when we enrolled our son in KinderCare at Newtown. On his first days and weeks of school, he was frightened and nervous about this new environment. I was particularly impressed with his teachers, who took the time to talk with him, hold him, and even to practice deep breathing when he started to cry! I really felt like the teachers sincerely cared about my son, which is such a reassuring feeling for a parent. Administratively, Mina and her staff are wonderful! They create a real feeling of love. The center is bright and cheery, staff says "Hello!" when you arrive, and it's an environment that is welcoming and warm. When I requested a change in the days that he went to KinderCare, even if it was a last minute request, it was always answered with "No problem!" They were flexible and kind in meeting our needs. We are at a time when our son is moving on from KinderCare, but I want everyone to know how overwhelmingly happy we were with his experience there. The things he learned will stay with him for a lifetime. I continue to recommend KinderCare at Newtown to friends and family.

  • For Miss Richelle and Miss Liz in the older infant room - They always take the time to tell me how my daughter's day went and one cute thing she did that day that made them laugh. It means a lot to our family that Miss Richelle and Miss Liz notice these little things and share them with us.

  • Ms Samantha & Ms Nino: Thank you for paying close attention to Jackson's developmental steps and sharing details about his development with us. Specifically around his interaction with peers- we were so touched and proud to know he is starting to be a true friend to his classmates.

  • All the teachers are really wonderful. In particular, I would like to recognize Ms. Nilda because she was Hayden's primary caregiver during her impressionable infancy.
    “Ms. Nilda, It’s not just the tangible and measurable things that make a great teacher. It’s the immeasurable special connections that you make with children, leaving them with lasting and happy memories that make an excellent teacher. From the moment I toured Kindercare, I felt your warmth. You had a great big smile and seemed to genuinely love children. When I drop my daughter off, I see how happy she is to see you and the connection you share. It just makes me smile inside and feel confident that she is in great hands. It’s really difficult to drop your child off every morning, but dropping her off to warm, open and caring arms like yours make it a lot easier. I often see older kids stop by each morning just to say Hi to you. They remember you from when they were in the infant room and they love you. That speaks volumes! Thank you Ms. Nilda for your special touch. It really means a lot to me!

  • Thanks so much. It was a pleasuring having our son attend your school - you and your staff made the transition for us very easy. And he truly loved your teachers and had so much fun there.

  • I wanted to take some time to leave some feedback for the teachers in the infant room. Since we have been with KinderCare for about two months now and I visit Julie at lunch time, I can provide this feedback. Overall, we have been very happy. We (and Julie) love Ms. Nilda, Ms. Abby, and Ms. Carol. All three of them provide something completely different that help Julie develop while giving us parents peace of mind while we’re at work. Ms. Nilda obviously is the big hen in the barn. She keeps everyone on their poo, nap, play and eating schedules. She knows without checking who is due for what and which child had what to eat. It is truly amazing to see her work when there are eight or more children in the room. Ms. Nilda also offers friendly advice, such as which diaper cream works best, when to move up to the next diaper size, what to teach your young child, etc. She never seems like she’s “preaching” when giving advice. She also listens very well at drop off or during lunch visits. If we tell Ms. Nilda that Julie woke up at 3:00am the previous night, Ms. Nilda attempts to have her take an extra or longer nap. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate Ms. Nilda. Ms. Abby is also great. From my observations, she is very hands on with the babies. This includes being on her tummy during tummy time, sitting on the floor with them, playing with age appropriate toys, etc. It must be her youthfulness :) She also can multitask very well. She can be feeding one child while stimulating another child so no one is crying. Abby also has great problem solving skills. I was providing them with an extra 4oz bottle and indicated that sometimes Julie fights naps. If she fights naps, one or two oz of milk usually puts her right to sleep. In my mind I was trying to help them with this info. What I didn’t know was that all the milk from one bottle had to be used within one hour. So Ms. Abby suggested that I bring in a 2oz bottle in addition to the 4oz and that way no breast milk would be wasted and there would still be an extra 4oz bottle just in case. I’m glad she suggested that and since then the little 2oz bottle has been used about 5 times. She is also very friendly- she acts like your best friend or an aunt to Julie. What I most appreciate about Ms. Abby is her problem solving skills. Ms. Carol appears to be the most caring. She knows so much about each child. She knows their personalities, likes/dislikes, small cues and how to help a child before a “meltdown” occurs. She even noticed a small rash that Julie was starting to get and told us that it appeared to be a reaction to like a soap or something instead of a reaction to food. We changed Julie’s shampoo and the rash went away quickly. Ms. Carol also provides the best daily updates. She usually takes the time and fills it in on the daily forms, but if not, she gives me a full account of Julie’s day, and I’m sure she does for each parent. An example of this is that Ms. Carol will let me know if Julie “wasn’t herself” that day and exactly how she wasn’t. And just last week Ms. Carol let me know that Julie rolled over, and this was a first for Julie, and for us as first time parents. Ms. Carol wrote it on the daily log, but also told me in detail about exactly how she rolled over. I promptly called both sets of grandparents and was able to give them Ms. Carol's recount of the event. What I appreciate most about Ms. Carol is the daily updates. She has a way of telling me the updates as if she was the proud grandma. I wish all three teachers could move up to the next room when Julie is old enough and has to move on. (I know it doesn’t work that way though, ha!) I think you should do everything you can to keep these three teachers. They each shine in a different way.

  • These days we are all counting our blessings. Among our families, we count Ms. Andisha and Ms. Amber at Kindercare. During the pandemic, potty training seemed like an insurmountable challenge. With their support, encouragement, and strengths-based approach, our son was potty trained with all smiles. Without the routine they provide and their authentic connection to our son, I don't know where we'd be! We're so thankful they are a part of our village.
