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.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare partners with Child Care Aware® of America to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and flexible support to fit their needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

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.)

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.

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!

  • Both of our children have attended KinderCare since the age of 12 weeks. We chose this school because of the caring staff and the engaging curriculum.  As a new parent, I was terrified to return to work; our experience with KinderCare removed all of my fear and replaced it with gratitude for the wonderful, caring, talented, teachers and the attention and love my children received. Sending our children to KinderCare has been joyful.  We know they are happy, safe, learning, and feel special. At the end of each day, both of my boys are so excited to share what they've done in the classroom - art work, writing activities, baking classes - this is a hands-on, fun, engaging school with a great curriculum. 

    Laura and Mike - KinderCare Parent
  • To all families considering this center for care of your children: Our twin girls, now almost four years old, have been coming to KinderCare at the Lexington Avenue location since they were 9 weeks old. As a mom with a full-time, outside-the-home job and a dad on frequent business travel, we have always found the reliability of friendly, knowledgeable teachers with extensive hours (for scheduling flexibility) and thoughtful curriculum (for confidence of learning even at the earliest ages) comforting and ideal. As first-time parents, we were also repeatedly grateful for guidance and experienced suggestions that our teachers would provide when we asked for it. We even learned from the wisdom of other parents at the center with situations similar to ours. Most important is that our daughters are happy and genuinely look forward to going to school each day and to sharing with us the many activities and discoveries they have had when we see them in the afternoons. Like many moms and dads, we wish for more opportunities to be involved with these important events. Throughout the year, KinderCare programs provide us a window into the girls day: from conferences with a very helpful and comprehensive evaluation structure, to seasonal galas and performances, to kind and attentive one-on-one talks, showing we are important even when the energetic afternoon bustle surrounds us at pick-up. We’ve even been welcomed to participate as we are able in special daytime activities such as educational guest entertainment, birthday celebrations, and as a volunteer to share in book reading time. And we not only learn daily about our girls adventures but we have had the chance to meet many of their friends. We find that it does not take long for a new friend to become a good friend. Make a visit to check out this bright, supportive environment. Sincerely, Liz and Chris A. KinderCare family since January 2009
