Exeter 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!
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
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.)
“ My two-year-old son has attended this center since he was eight weeks old. He loves all the teachers and it is evident that the teachers love him too! We get "Good Morning!" from everyone as we walk down the hallway in the morning, and "Good Night!" from everyone as we leave. The girls here are a great extension of our family and we appreciate them helping our little man grow!Show more
“ I chose KinderCare for Brayden because he went there when he was a baby and they took wonderful care of him. Now that I need care again it was a no brainer that he comes back. I know I will have piece of mind knowing he is getting well taken care of and learning.Show more
“ My family and I recently moved to Pennsylvania and we were a bit nervous not knowing how our 3 year old would adjust to a new preschool (he had been attending his previous preschool since he was 5 months old). I must say the staff at KinderCare Exeter did an amazing job with the transition. He quickly fell in love with his new teachers and started making friends. He brings daily projects home related to the lesson learned for that day and often sings new songs learned at the center (some in Spanish!). My son has Celiac Disease which requires a Gluten Free diet. The staff took the time to meet with me and worked on a plan that would incorporate his GF diet. This was a huge relief for my family. We are so thankful for the wonderful staff at KinderCare Exeter and everything they do.Show more
“ Both my children have been enrolled at KinderCare since infancy and we couldn't be happier! The teachers are wonderful and truly love their students. They learn through songs, reading and active play. Every month we get a newsletter telling us about the upcoming lesson for each classroom. Breakfast, lunch and snack is included, so no packing lunches! They very rarely close for weather issues which is great for parents who never get off for snow. You can meet with teachers when ever you want, you can call in any time with questions or to check on how the kids are doing. It's a great experience all around!Show more
“ We love KinderCare in Exeter Township! The staff there creates a wonderful environment which allows my children to learn and have fun. They offer programs such as music classes, Spanish classes, cooking classes, etc. that allows my children to explore while learning. Every day my family is greeted by welcoming staff members. All the teachers go above and beyond to treat my children respect and kindness. My children look forward to seeing their teachers every day, because they know that their teachers truly care for them. While at KinderCare my children create projects that focus on a theme they are learning in class. These projects promote creativity, support a lesson, and promote fine motor skills. My entire family is very thrilled with how exceptional the staff and programs are at KinderCare Exeter.Show more
“ Kinder Care in Exeter is the Best!! I have been a customer there since 2004 to 2010 and comeback 2013 with my youngest daughter. All the teachers and staff are terrific! They work very well with the children and allow for a safe, fun, learning environment. Some of the staff are still there since when I first enrolled my oldest kid in 2004. My older kids, now teenagers, always talk about the good times and memories they had there. We are very pleased and thankfull with the service and attention we've received from the whole KinderCare team.Show more
“ KinderCare is amazing! They have so many activities for all the children to participate in, they have music, cooking, math, Spanish. My Daughter always goes and leaves with a smile, their staff is very friendly, loving, kind and care for the kids, you never see a bad attitude. They do projects almost every day to help them learn in a fun way. They have fun activities too, they go outside and play, they have a playground, tricycles, swings and the staff organizes fun games too. Love their summer camps, the food is great too, well balanced and good taste, they are flexible and cooperate with your schedule and vacations.We are very thankful with KinderCare and appreciate all the work their staff do everyday!Show more
“ I can not say enough great things about this facility! The teachers have been wonderful with my son. He has some developmental delays and he is thriving since he started attending in November!! He loves Miss Ericka and Missi! After interviewing several day cares we know we picked the best! My husband and I could not be happier with all of the wonderful staff in Exeter!!Show more
“ Our son has been enrolled at Exeter KinderCare for a little over a month now. My husband and I were both nervous as this was our son's first time in a daycare setting. His teachers, the director and assistant director and all the staff have all been incredible. From answering all of our questions to updating us daily on our son's day and progress, we could could not be more thrilled about our choice of enrolling our son here. Our son is now at the point where he knows it’s time to go to daycare and runs to the door at our home to leave. That action alone let us know we made the right choice.Show more

When it comes to deciding on a child care center, we know there’s nothing quite like hearing from other families! Hear what Becky has to say about being a part of the KinderCare community:
“As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at KinderCare every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. The teachers and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son has been blessed with awesome teachers who understand his challenges, and handle him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day at "school!" Thank you to the KinderCare child care organization for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day, and a special thanks to Karen and her staff; they continue to do amazing works of ‘heart’ with all children.”
