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 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!


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.

Our Families

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

  • Awesome school!  We are from India and our four-year-old son only knows our mother language. When he started his school, he cried so much, but Miss Amanda and Miss Meghan gave him enough care and cooling period to settle down. Within two months he started picking up the language and I'm amazed of his vocabulary now. When he started, he knew only alphabets and numbers. Now he is writing words, doing addition problems, and a little reading with sight words. Happy that the teachers are not only academic, but also teach the kids using good manners. They helped my son grow so much academically and personally. There are not enough words to express our gratitude. Thank you Miss Amanda and Miss Meghan for your kind support and care for the kids. 

    Most of all, our son loves the teachers and his friends more. Now he is saying he doesn't want to leave the school to join kindergarten because he loves being in KinderCare so much.  Miss Elba, Miss Maria, Miss Melissa, and all the other teachers are welcoming the kids and parents with a warm smile. Besides, every teacher knows the name of each child. Thank you KinderCare!
