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.
Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)
A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.
Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care 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. Kids in this delightful and delicious program 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! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It 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. Your child will experiment with activities like learning how lemon juice and baking soda interact to uncover secret messages, watching fizzy reactions in action, and discovering 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!
We have been at the Plymouth KinderCare for four and a half beautiful, memory-filled years. I chose this center initially because of the location to our home but after meeting Stephanie, the staff and teachers I knew that I had found a place where my daughter would grow and thrive. From potty training to painting and boo-boos to baking the teachers and staff have always done everything they can to make every day a beautiful day where learning is fun. I love that I can walk into any classroom at any time and no matter what, the teachers are encouraging kids to use their imagination, seek knowledge, and just plain have fun. As parents we want to be involved in every aspect of our children's development so the teachers encourage parents to get involved in any activities that are going on in the class. We had a great time with Mrs. Donna and my daughter's kindergarten class baking cookies and talking about holiday traditions in Italy last December. Every day that I dropped my daughter off I left knowing that the people she was with value her education as much as I do. When I first read this quote I thought to myself this is the most succinct description of the teachers at KinderCare in Plymouth: "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." –Albert Einstein”

My son goes to the Kinder Care in Plymouth Ma on pilgrim hill. Our director Stephanie and assistant director Jessica make the experience excellent. I feel safe going to work and I know my son is constantly learning. When problems of any kind spring up the team I mentioned come up with solutions and ways to work to avoid them in the future. I would recommend this center to any of my family and friends and I hope their tireless efforts do not go unnoticed!

I write this letter with bittersweet feelings - seeing our little Noah move from the infant room to the toddler room. While we know that Noah is ready for the change and will be in the very capable hands of Kelley, we want to commend Lisa Casey for all that she did not only for Noah but also for Abby and Jack as well.
We have had the absolute pleasure to have someone like Lisa in our lives for the last six years. Lisa is one of the kindest people I have ever met in my life. She is so genuine and caring towards the children. She gave Greg and I such comfort when we began bringing Jack in at 9 months. While Jack's transition was difficult for him, Lisa was always a source of comfort.
With Abby, Lisa made her feel welcome right away and we still smile at the special treatment that Lisa gave her on her first birthday - "puffs" party and birthday crown surrounded by her little baby friends. The picture still hangs in our kitchen.
When we were getting ready to bring Noah in to start with Lisa, I remember her asking me about my concerns. I without hesitation laughed and told her that I had none. Just knowing that she would be there to take care of him with her loving ways was all I needed to know.
We have never worried about the care of our three children while they were under Lisa's care. She always goes above and beyond. It is a priceless feeling to be able to leave your children in the capable hands of someone like Lisa and be able to concentrate fully on work and not worry.
We are excited for Noah to begin his ventures in Toddler and Abby to continue in Prekindergarten, but wanted to take a minutes and say a very BIG thank you to Lisa and the other teachers in Infants. We have been blessed to have had Lisa in our lives.”

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how amazing your staff is at KinderCare in Plymouth! All of the teachers go out of their way to help us and I can't thank them enough! I could go on forever about how amazing I think everyone there is. In just over a year of being with KinderCare we have never had a problem and are always greeted by smiling faces.”
Dianna O. - KinderCare Parent
The entire KinderCare staff was absolutely amazing when it came to assisting me and my daughter with a wonderful transition. Whenever she would cry when it was time for Mommy to leave, an attentive staff member would pick her up and hold her to make her feel comfortable as I moved out of the line of vision. I enjoyed every photo that my daughter brought home with her after school, as well as knowing that my daughter was receiving a healthy snack and a wonderful education provided by a fantastic team of people. KinderCare is a wonderful, safe, friendly, and helpful center. I would recommend this center to anyone in need of exceptional childcare.”
Chine M. - KinderCare Parent
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for everything! All nine years worth! I have been coming to KinderCare as long as the building has been open. I have been nothing but overjoyed with the care my children have received since day one. The quality and programming we have experienced is outstanding. We love everything that the center had to offer and will continue to refer any chance we get! Once again thank you for everything! Our hearts will always be a part of your KinderCare family.”
