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.

Paramus 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

An Artist's Heart

Family Stories

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • We are writing to acknowledge a special teacher in our daughter Alex's life. In the last year that our daughter Alex has been in Jr. Preschool, Ms. Menka has done an outstanding job providing excitement, laughter and love to all of the kids in her class. Her dedication (holiday performance, bringing in her china tea set, thorough parent reports) and spirit (peanut butter jelly song, books, workout routine) have provided a truly happy and caring place for our toddler to spend her days. Alex always talks about Ms. Menka every night (even though she's moved on to preschool) and even talks about her while she sleeps at night ("which one should I pick Ms. Menka?")! Thank you KinderCare for finding these special teachers!

  • I have two sons who attend KinderCare in Paramus, New&nbsp; Jersey. Jack is four and Danny is three months old. Jack has had a great year with Ms. Anika, Ms. Michelle and Ms. Erica (Prekindergarten I). He has learned to write and is learning to read. I am so proud of him and the progress he has made this year. I truly feel that Ms. Anika, Ms. Michelle and Ms. Erica care about their students. Jack also works with Ms. Steph in Kelsey. He has made a great deal of progress working with Ms. Steph as well. I feel that she also truly cares about her students.<br /> Danny has just started in Infant I with Ms. Jeanine and Ms. Jessica. Danny has transitioned nicely. I feel that the teachers do a great job caring for him. The classroom is a lovely and clean environment for an infant. The teachers utilize appropriate toys and books. In addition, the children are presented with appropriate sensory activities, such as making footprints. There is music on and a smile on Danny's face when I pick him up.<br /> The teachers in both classes as well as the administrative staff are always willing to speak with me regarding questions, concerns or just about the boys' progress. I just wanted to acknowledge what a great job these teachers doing. Thank you!

  • My two-year-old started at KinderCare part-time when I was pregnant with my second. The transition to daycare was difficult for all of us but the staff at Paramus KinderCare made it so much easier. I knew every day that I was dropping her off that she would be safe and engaged in developmentally appropriate learning. The teachers have been high quality teachers, who my daughter has loved. The child who cried every morning for 2 weeks, now looks forward to seeing her teachers and classmates. 

    Additionally, the administrative staff was always very friendly and available to discuss any questions or concerns that we had. I was also very impressed by how involved they are with the children and how they know each and everyone by name. We recently had a change to our status and will have to leave KinderCare but we miss the facility, staff, and directors!
