Redlands 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.
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.
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!
“ My daughter has been going to Kindercare for more than a year she has learned so much. She started at 9 months old and if she didn't come here I believe she wouldn't as smart as she is. All the teachers care for every child as if they were the it own and I love that. My daughter comes home everyday remembering things she learned at school and I feel so proud. These teachers are so great and I'm glad I enrolled her into Kindercare.Show more
“ I normally don't write reviews but this school definitely deserves one. The teachers are really nice they know that every child learns at different paces. The receptionists are always smiling. They have so much to offer these children to keep them interested in school. One of my favorites is the cooking session on Fridays. Also if ur child is in kindergarten they offer transportation.Show more
“ My son has been attending KinderCare facilities since he was two. This particular KinderCare has been really great. The staff are all very kind and warm and friendly. I would recommend this facility to other parents.Show more
“ I have two boys that have been attending this center since they were each 5 months old. My oldest is now 4 and my youngest is 17 months. I work full time so my boys are at KinderCare for 8-9 hrs a day so I wanted to find a childcare center that made me feel welcomed and comfortable. I love the teachers and how involved they are with my boys. My youngest is in the toddler classroom and has great teachers that are always letting me know what fun activities my son has been doing. Everyday I get a daily report form letting me know what exciting events took place and what the class was learning at circle time. My oldest son is in the TK program and is learning to read. He has learned so much here, I know he will be 100% ready for kindergarten thanks to everything he has learned while attending KinderCare. I would definitely recommend this KinderCare for anyone looking to enroll their child in an Early Education Program. It's warm and welcoming and provides curriculum and and education for young minds.Show more
“ I love this school! My three year old started at another school that was cheaper and he was having serious anxiety and was crying everyday. I pulled him out and brought him to this KinderCare and he loved it! He still has moments where he cries (mostly about taking a nap) but they are caring and help him transition. I love the open door policy. I come and visit him during my lunch sometimes and they never seem inconvenienced even if he is upset after I leave. The food they serve always looks good, and pretty balanced. The staff are always friendly and happy to help in any way. I would definitely recommend this school to everyone I know.Show more
“ The staff, teachers and caregivers are wonderful and caring people. They take care of our son like he is their own. Our son loves going to school every day and they love having him. The rooms are clean and organized. We have noticed a positive difference in our sons social and vocabulary skills along with him excelling in learning. It's worth the tuition price.Show more
“ My daughter Isabel has been enrolled in the Infant room for three months. She is happy and smiling when she sees her teachers and the other children. Her teachers, Ms. LaCheryl, Ms. Nicole and Ms. Maria, are very attentive and actively engage the children to further their development. The Infant room is vibrant with colors, pictures and toys. I never imagined that at the age of three months my child could create artwork, but at Redlands KinderCare the teachers value varying activities to promote learning through exploration. I'm very happy with the staff and facility and am glad my daughter is in a safe and caring environment where she can grow, learn and play.Show more
“ I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much my daughter enjoys going to her "extra special" cooking and music classes at KinderCare. Last year when she started school she was very shy and slow to participate in class. Being an only child, I know it was a challenging experience for her. I signed her up for music and cooking classes, thinking the additional classes would not only teach her new things and promote her development, but it was also my hope that she would begin to interact more. I was so happy to see her begin to emerge more each week. It is always easier to wake her up and get dressed when I tell her it is music day or cooking day. Ava loves to run around the house dancing and signing the new songs she has learned from Ms. Sabrina. Often in the car I will hear her singing something new and I know exactly where she learned it. At the grocery store she will point out items on the shelf and what she made with Ms. Sabrina. In the kitchen I have a great little helper that won't let me start making dinner without her. We have just started the phonics classes and she is writing letter in chalk on the back patio, she used to draw flowers. I couldn't be more pleased with the results from the extra classes!Show more
“ I had never used a daycare system before, because my daughter was taken care of at a private in-home facility that had only two other children attend. As a result, the official daycare experience was scary to me. We visited the KinderCare briefly when we thought of putting our daughter in a daycare, but decided to keep her at the in-home facility. However, when our son was born we did not have the same options as we once had for our daughter. We started looking at daycare centers. After searching, Redlands KinderCare was honestly our first choice. The staff was friendly and answered all of our questions. Handing over my four-month-old son was so hard at first, but Ms. LaCheryl was there every day with a smile and a hug. I was able to take as much time as needed before leaving him there for the day. She also let me know that there was an open door policy. This allowed me the opportunity to call as much and whenever I needed. Now that Eli is 14 months-old, he has transitioned into the toddler classroom. His new teachers are still as great as his infant teachers. He has a few dietary restrictions that they are very careful to follow to ensure his needs were met. Furthermore, the directors are also there with a smile and offer words of advice. They are always happy when greeting me for the day. They show genuine interest in getting to know me and my family. Overall, I am truly glad we chose this KinderCare for our son. It was a great decision. He's happy and thriving.Show more
“ Our experience with KinderCare was wonderful. All the staff, not just my son's teachers, were always warm and welcoming, attentive and professional. My son was in the prekindergarten class. He is four years in age and will soon be five. At first, he had a few behavioral issues that his teacher and managerial staff helped us to overcome. I really liked that they would call me whenever my son was having a particularly hard day, and if I could speak to him on the phone or come early to get him. When the time came for us to part ways, he was a well-adjusted, social, and excelling in all areas. My son also has asthma, and they were always prompt with his medication. All in all, there is truly nothing bad I can say about the is Kindercare Center! My experience has been a good one. I thank the staff so very much!Show more

“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.”
