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.
Spring 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.
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!
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
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.)
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!
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!
Our son is three years old. He has been at KinderCare in spring since he was about sixteen weeks old. Choosing our child's daycare was not an easy decision. We visited a few, but hands down KinderCare won. Looking back and hearing other parents stories it all comes down to the staff. Ms. Gwen and Ms. Katie really sold the place, There was nothing "fake" about their love of children. Three years later they are like a extension of our family.
Ms. Katie has been the bright spot of my son's day. He can't leave without saying good bye to her. I really don't think she has had a bad day and if she does she never shows it. She always has time to say a kind word to him and acknowledge him. As a former basketball coach one of the lessons I learned early on is every parent believes his or her son/daughter is the best and greatest. I had to pay attention to only 12-15 kids and make them know I was there for them and cared about them. She does if for all of them and it is amazing. In talking with other parents at birthday parties we all agree our children have changed so much with her music program. We all laugh at "Katie" music that we all know the words to.
Recently with our son transitioning to a new classroom we are out of "routine" and our son has been having some separation issues in the morning. Ms. Gwen has been there helping him and us every step of the way. I can't say enough of how much I appreciate that when I call, she checks on him to give us peace of mind that our child is OK. Again listening to other friends' day care nightmare stories I am more than happy to smile and tell them how great of a place and how much peace of mind we have because of Gwen.”
Mr. J. - KinderCare Parent
My son has been attending the KinderCare early learning center since he was three years old and this year will be off to Kindergarten in the fall. My other son has been going there since he was born and he is now two years old. I was at another daycare, not a KinderCare, prior to this daycare and I must say I have never had the experiences I am having now at any point in time.
From the moment I walk in to the moment I pick my kids up at the end of the day I love going in and coming out of this building. I get good mornings from every person I pass and I get a have a good night every time. You never go un noticed and if you have concerns they are always there to listen to you. They keep you updated on everything that is going on and no sickness is every missed.
I love how much everyone that works here is very passionate about the children and I have never had a issue with anyone here and I have now been in every room. The Director and the Assistant Director never just do their director work and hang out in the front office. I see them constantly interacting with the children and in the rooms as well doing other things besides just their office functions. A lot of times people don't even want to be bothered in this type of position and this is not the case here.
Anytime there is a issue with my children I am a very concerned parent to try to get the situation fixed and resolved and the teachers as well are right there to back me up. They never give up and this is important being my kids are there full time. So I think that this is a very important part of the daycare process when the teachers actually care and try to help and not just think of your child being a lost cause because something is not easily fixed. Whenever a issue is expressed as far as learning, or whatever the case may be, the teachers are very understanding and take what I have to say to a further step and help them.
I can definitely say that when my youngest goes to Kindergarten in a few years I am going to be very sad to leave and miss seeing all the great and wonderful people that work here at this KinderCare.”
