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.
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!
My childs name is Brittany and her teacher is Ms. Vian. Brittany has been with KinderCare for almost 3 months. I just wanted to let you know how much i appreciate everything Ms. Vian has done to help Brittany to improve her skills and personality.&lt;br /&gt; When Brittany went to kinderCare, she was a shy girl and knew little about spanish and numbers. Now, after studing with Ms. Vian, she is not shy anymore and can count to one hundred and speak Spanish (of course English too.) Yesterday evening, she even can read a kids book for me at home. I am so excited. She definitely couldn’t have done it without Ms. Vian.&lt;br /&gt; Ms. Vian has helped build the foundation for Brittany. The impact of her help is so significant. I truly can not thank Ms. Vian enough and will be forever greatful.&lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;”
Sam - KinderCare Parent
Our family started at your center in October of this year and we have been very satisfied with quality of care and attention you have afforded the children. We have been to a number of childcare facilities before but I am thoroughly impressed by yours.&amp;nbsp; The director and the staff are very welcoming, hard working, and cooperative.&amp;nbsp; The teachers all genuinely care for the children and always know the right balance of discipline and TLC.&amp;nbsp; The facilities are clean and organized and every wall is decorated with fun pictures and art work.&amp;nbsp; I love how we get the daily report cards&amp;nbsp; that tells me what&amp;nbsp;my child&amp;nbsp;has been learning about in class that day so I can talk to him about what he has learned that day.&amp;nbsp; I'm also impressed by the extra events organized such as parent teacher conferences, picture day, etc.&amp;nbsp; I always feel comfortable dropping of my kids at Overlake&amp;nbsp;Kindercare because I know they will be in good hands!&lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;”
Jen Baisai - KinderCare Parent
I absolutely love KinderCare - Overlake. My both daughters have been here. The changes that have been made to the curriculum recently are all added bonus to an already a great place! I am impressed with the amount of activities (even for toddlers) that are being done: nursery rhymes time, art, circle time. I can clearly see difference in my daughter's activity level even within a few weeks of joining KinderCare.
Recommend very highly. Great Location + a truly caring staff - a winning combo!”
Purvi Modi - KinderCare Parent
I was a stay at home mom with my daughter for the first three years of her life. &amp;nbsp;It killed me to have to go back to work and leave her with someone other than a family member watching her for the first time, and my daughter's safety and happiness were the most important things to me in looking for a good child care program.&lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt; It took some time for her to adjust to her first year, but the staff at Kindercare in Overlake was so helpful in helping her adjust, and supporting her to make new friends her age. &amp;nbsp;I remember the first day that I dropped her off and instead of clinging to my leg and begging me not to leave- she practically shoved me out of the way so that she could say hello to her friends. &amp;nbsp;It was right then that I knew that I made the right choice about who to watch my child.&lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt; My daughter's teachers have been wonderful. &amp;nbsp;The curriculum is smart- her teachers make learning really fun for her and she is coming home everyday with something new that she learned in Kindercare. &amp;nbsp;I really feel like all the staff has taken the time to get to know my daughter, and really meet her at her needs. &amp;nbsp;I have come to pick my daughter and observed how the teachers are with my daughter and all of the other kids. &amp;nbsp;The staff at Kindercare really do love kids, there is just no other way to put it. &amp;nbsp;They genuinely care about the children and really actively interact with all the kids- definitely makes me feel comfortable knowing that my daughter's safety comes first.&lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt; I would recommend Overlake Kindercare to any of my friends with kids. &amp;nbsp;It has been more than just a daycare or preschool- but a second home to my daughter and there is nobody else outside of the family I would trust to watch my little girl.&lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; &amp;nbsp;”
