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)

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.

Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)

Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

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.

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. 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.)


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 for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo. Qué pasa?

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!

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

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

  • When we first enrolled in this KinderCare my son went into the fours classroom and my daughter the threes. Now three years later, my son is a graduate from their first ever kindergarten classroom that this center opened up and I can't wait for my daughter to have the same fantastic experience my son had. Their syllabus has been up to par and sometimes I feel has exceeded the kindergarten learning in public school. Mr. Jason realized my son's potential and pushed him to realize it himself. The homework he was given perfectly complemented the homework he got from his public school and at times I thought was more creative too. The trips they took while in their summer program were fun and I love the amount of personal involvement the teacher had in each student.
    Aditi's teachers have given us the same experience as well. Ms, Lydia, and Ms. Sammika, especially, have shown such an amazing personal interest in her. I feel like she is safe and in good hands and I never have had to worry about her safety or her feeling sad or left out in anyway. Their quality of teaching is impeccable and I only wish my daughter would sometimes listen better! I am looking forward to the summer program again and her upcoming kindergarten experience here.
    The staff here has been incredibly supportive. There are times when I've had to call the school last minute to see if the kids could attend for that day, or the time I missed letting them know that they would be out. They have never let me feel like they've been inconvenienced by my missteps.
    I would highly recommend this center to anyone that's interested in giving their child a wholesome education with a loving family like atmosphere.

  • KinderCare has been a second family to us for almost four years now. The teachers in the infant, toddler and preschool/Pre-K rooms are wonderful -- so caring, educated and teaching our children so much. The Learning Adventure classes like Phonics give our children extra education outside of the classroom with more specialized learning, and it's been amazing to see everything our kids have learned in the classroom. The curriculum is challenging and perfect for each age group, and we know how prepared our kids will be once they get to kindergarten and beyond, thanks to KinderCare. Cathy Veller, the director, and Kristin Boyd, the assistant director, are so helpful, organized and accommodating. Best of all, they truly love the children. It's such a pleasure to be greeted by their smiling faces every morning. They have both been with the North Schaumburg center long term, and it shows -- they know all the families, kids and center information so well. They work well together, and it shows. Cathy and Kristin's center was our first choice from the beginning, and we have been thrilled with KinderCare from the first day we brought our 3-month-old to them. One of the best decisions we made as first-time parents!

  • As a new mom, it was hard for me to make the decision for my daughter to go to daycare.    She has been enrolled for over a year now and it is one of the best decisions my husband and I made.  The staff at North Schaumburg KinderCare have made a positive impact in my daughter’s life and given her skills that she can only learn in a social setting.   The teachers are professional, experienced, but most importantly have the caring side that will scoop up your child and give them a hug just like I would at home.  They treat each student like they are one of there own, and pay attention to their individual needs.  They take the time out to listen and make the child feel important, even if it means they have to stop and take the time to  do the “potty dance” with my daughter, as we do at home, after each trip to the bathroom.   The Directors, Cathy and Kristen are always visible, know everyone’s names and welcome you in with a smile.   Their professionalism, longevity with the company and attention to every detail does not go unnoticed.  They are the pillars of the facility and are respected by each staff member; I never hesitate leaving my child under their direction.  
    My husband and I are amazed with the growth our daughter has had over the first year with them, from songs she sings, to her logical reasoning, social interactions and her manners all because of North Schaumburg KinderCare.  We are expecting our second child in the next few months, and because of our daughter’s success, the only option for us is to enroll our second.   I cannot thank all the staff enough, from the cook to the directors for the positive impact they have made in our child’s life.
