AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED

We’re so proud!

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.

SCHOOL-READY

What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

Our 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.

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.

Elementary School Distance Learning

Healthy bodies, happy hearts, growing minds. We make distance learning easy on your whole family! Our teachers are trained to facilitate safe and dynamic learning experiences online and in-person. Since every school has their own learning plan, we’ve added flexible enrollment options to meet your family’s needs. Whether you choose to enroll full-time, part-time, or before and after school, we’re here for you!

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.)

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!

Our Teachers

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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • Our family has been a part of the St. Louis Park KinderCare family for 9 years now. You have an amazing staff, and as we enter what will be our final year all three kids still feel at home here, even though the older two are in school now. KinderCare has brought new friends to our children and to us and we will be forever grateful for how they have cared for and prepared our children for school and life.

    Kate - KinderCare Parent
  • We love the care given by all the teachers, but love the fact that many have been at the center as long as we have. We trust them (Mark, Kathy, Kate, Manisha, Majorie, Melissa, etc) and know that they care about our girls. It will be sad when we leave in June after 7+ years with KinderCare.

    Tracy - KinderCare Parent
  • My husband and I started looking for a learning center for our son months before he was born, as soon to be first time parents we wanted to make sure we found the right fit for our little guy and our family. We looked at many facilities, but KinderCare in particular because of its proximity to our home and the glowing reviews of our neighbors. Upon walking in the door we were immediately drawn to the warm personalities of all of the staff and just knew it was the perfect place for our son’s first educational experience. As we look back on the first year of his life and how happy he is, we know we have our KinderCare ‘family’ to thank for much of that!

    Heather - KinderCare Parent
  • KinderCare has been a very positive experience for our daughter. She has learned so much and loves coming to school everyday to see her friends and teachers. The staff go the extra mile to ensure she has a positive experience. We really enjoy bringing her and feel confident she is well cared for.

    Kathy & Troy - KinderCare Parent
  • As I am sure you know, we are very grateful for all the great care our child receives at KinderCare. Your staff has been so patient and caring of Tyler and I don't know what we would have done if we had not come upon such a wonderful Center. I am sure that the interaction Tyler experiences at such a young age will help set him up for Elementary school, and in reality, affect his entire adult life as well. Keep up the great job and know that your Center is the best in the Twin Cities.

    John - KinderCare Parent
  • I am very happy, and often think how fortunate I have been, to know that each day I go to work, my children go to a place where they are loved. Nothing can be more comforting for a working parent, then to know their children are being well cared for by people who have the same values, hopes and dreams for their children as they do. The level of personalized attention for both parents and children is unmatched. For Sami, the teachers have done a wonderful job teaching him his letters, numbers, art, creativity & also important social & behavior skills. I can’t be with him 24/7 and I am glad they are there when I’m not. I would like to thank the entire staff at KinderCare, for your patience and determination since I know that Sami is not an easy child to deal with! For Jad, his teachers are very nurturing and loving and I believe the best testimonial would be the wide gummy smiles and cute giggles that he gives them as soon as he sees them. I love all the care and stimulation that the VERY patient teachers give Jad day in and day out. Both Sami and Jad are happy Children & really enjoy going to your center. Day care providers are truly teachers, nurses, counselors and much much more. Thank you for all your love & support!

    Samia - KinderCare Parent
  • We love the teachers and the bright, clean sunny rooms!
