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.


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.

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.

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

  • Choosing child care can be an overwhelming task. You can spend months doing research, making lists, and visiting centers. Even with all these tools, most parents will say they went with the place that just felt right. I liked the Assistant Director at Guilbeau KinderCare right away. More importantly, so did my kids. On my son’s first day, the Teacher made a poster board with pictures of him throughout the day. He was all smiles. Three years later, I have four kids enrolled at KinderCare. From my infant to my four-year-old, they are all learning so much! I love how each month has a theme. I can easily tell what my kids are learning about from their vocabulary and art work. The Teachers always have something positive to say about my kids. They are very open with me if they feel one of them is struggling with something and always have a plan in place to help them with whatever that may be. When my son was diagnosed with a sensory disorder, Ms. Tara and Ms. Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable at school. They incorporated sensory activities into his daily schedule and helped the Teacher plan classroom activities that made it easier for him to participate. I love that KinderCare had so many resources available to them in a situation like this.  I am so grateful for the patience, caring, and genuine concern they have shown for him and for all my children.

  • My son has been enrolled in the Cooking Adventures class for the last five months, and he loves it! He looks forward to his class every week, and tells everyone that we meet that he takes cooking lessons and can cook better than his mommy. I am very impressed with the class because of all the educational reinforcements he gets while measuring, counting, and preparing the recipe, and the supplementation of higher order sequencing, math skills, and vocabulary. I have seen a difference in him and his behavior in the kitchen since he started, as he is focused and easily directed when he helps me prepare anything to eat. At the end of every class, we get the recipe card of what was prepared for the day and pictures of him while he is constructing his masterpiece. He is so proud when I pick him up and he brings home his latest creation to share with the rest of the family, and even neighbors! I never would have thought that my three-year-old would be successful and productive in the kitchen, but this program has proved it can happen, and has given him a wonderful sense of pride and accomplishment that we all want our children to learn early and carry with them for a lifetime.
