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.
Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
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.
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!

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
The phonics program at KinderCare was some of the best money we have spent during our time there. I would highly recommend it to every parent. The difference the program and the one on one attention made in helping my daughter recognize and learn the sounds of letters was amazing. The program gave her such an edge when the class started learning to read in Kindergarten that she was able to read chapter books by the end of the year and sound out most of the words without much help. I would without hesitation make the same decision to enroll her again and have done so with my second child.”
Donna B. - KinderCare Parent
As a parent of an internationally adopted child, we required a facility that could offer more than basic daycare services. Our son, at 19 months, was not accustomed to eating solid foods, which meant he would need special attention at breakfast and lunch. He was still learning to understand English as he had only been with us for four months prior to attending KinderCare. After reviewing multiple child care favilities in our area, it was clear that KinderCare would offer him the best level of care.
The Center Director, Becky Stein, and the teachers and staff of KinderCare welcomed our son to their facility with patience, attention and most importantly, love. They took time to meet with us to discuss not only his needs, but his overall goals for education.
It is now more than a year since he enrolled at KinderCare. The efforts of the KinderCare team are clearly showing results. He is now speaking English very clear, asking many questions and singing his ABCs and many other songs. He has a strong knowledge of various types of cars/trucks, shapes, animals, insects, and many other items due to KinderCare curriculum. He is very polite, saying please, thank you, excuse me, etc. when appropriate. Each day we pick him up, it is clear he has learned something new and is excited to tell and/or show us, much to our delight.
The love and patience provided by the entire KinderCare team makes us realize how lucky we are to have found them. It is clear that KinderCare is preparing our son for the next level, both in academics and appropriate behavior.”
Tom B. - KinderCare Parent
When we began the search for a school for our daughter, Bailey, we truly wanted a school. Not a daycare that just watched children, but an actual school that had programming and was fully aware of developmental milestones. We interviewed at several schools and did a lot of research. Once we looked at everything, KinderCare Seven Fields rose to the top and we have not been disappointed.
The teachers and staff at KinderCare Seven Fields have gone above and beyond for our daughter. She was born premature and, due to our work situations, started there when she was only seven weeks old and weighing only five pounds. During her first year she has experienced some hospitalizations and set-backs, but the staff has worked with her extensively, and we credit them with her phenomenal progress. They maintain excellent contact with us and are very aware of our daughter’s strengths and needs. I, myself, am a principal and I cannot begin to give enough praise to the staff for their professionalism and the educational environment they have created. Bailey loves going to school and is always smiling when she is there. They have truly made a difference in our lives and we are looking to the next several years with KinderCare Seven Fields!”
Wendi - KinderCare Parent
When his older brother moved on to Kindergarten, our youngest son had to learn how to be dropped off at KinderCare on his own. It was new and different and he struggled with the change. But Ms. Becky found time every morning to check on him, most of the time being there in person at his drop-off to hug him, hold him or take him on an adventure. Even though she had a lot of responsibilities as center director, she went out of her way to help one of her youngest students with a tough part of his day. I know it meant a lot to him because he often asked to hug her goodbye when we were leaving the center in the late afternoon. Ms. Becky also took the time to email me or his dad and let us know that he was happily playing. She wasn't only taking care of him, she was taking care of us, too!”
Jane P. - KinderCare Parent
Dear Becky, I wanted to offer some feedback on the Learning Adventures courses my daughter has been taking through KinderCare. Because she is younger than the recommended ages for some of the courses, I had some concerns, but you assured me your teachers would monitor her progress and make sure she was not out of her depth and got the most from the classes. Has she ever! We started her with the KinderMusic, and the level you anticipated would be best for her was right on target. She walks around the house making up songs to classical music. I wasn't sure she needed the Phonics classes as she knew her alphabet, but I'm glad I followed your recommendation to start her there. At a little over three years old, she is miles ahead of her peers and is starting to read and sound out words. She uses the Patterns and Graphing learned in the Math courses almost daily, as part of her play. And we have just started Spanish classes. Any parent who is serious about helping his or her child get a head start needs to know about these exceptional options offered by KinderCare. My daughter is bright, and she needs a challenge--a fun challenge. And with your input, feedback, total care, and commitment, we were able to partner and design a program that is fun and challenging. It is allowing her to meet her full potential. I knew from the first day I met you, the teachers and the other administrators at your center, that you had created a space that was committed to the total development of a child. My family is most grateful for this. As my daughter has now learned to say, gracias.”
