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)

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.

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!

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. 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!

  • Once during a training session at my job, a question was posed to the group: “What companies have earned your loyalty?” My reply was simple: KinderCare. The instructor was expecting to hear answers such as “Apple” or “Starbucks” so he seemed taken off-guard. I expanded by explaining that the staff at the Sleepy Hollow KinderCare has truly earned not only my loyalty, but also my respect, admiration, and utmost trust, as I place in their care daily my most prized possession–my children. They have been attending the Sleepy Hollow KinderCare for eight years with both of my daughters starting in the infant classroom as soon as I went back to work after my maternity leaves. My daughters have progressed through the center and are now in Kindergarten and School Age, and we have been thrilled with the care and support given throughout the years by the teachers and support staff. My girls are both excelling in their classrooms at school and I owe much of that to the curriculum and enrichment learning available at KinderCare. In the very rare instances where I had a concern, the Center Director listened to my thoughts and reacted appropriately, strengthening my belief that I have absolutely made the best choice for my child care services. Because of the relationships that my children and I have built with the teachers and staff over the years however, I do not think of KinderCare as just a child care service, I think of them as family.

  • I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to you and your staff at KinderCare. You all go out of your way to make my family feel welcome and at home in your center. I can tell you all take pride in your center. It is not always easy leaving my "baby" day in and day out, but when I do I know that he is very well taken care of by you and your teachers. I trust you all very much with my son and know that when I leave him he is going to get the best early childhood education possible and be well nurtured by his teachers. Ms. Trish always makes an effort to say "Good Morning" and asks about John's night. I LOVE the fact that even though John is not in her room anymore that she still cares about John and my family! Ms. Candy is ALWAYS sharing John's "cute" moments with me, which I TOTALLY love because I'm not always there! She gets so excited to tell me all the things John is doing, I can tell she really enjoys having my son in her class. As a mother it is a great feeling to have when you know that your child's teacher really enjoys having your son in their class. Ms. Ashley, although she is new and I don't get much of a chance to talk to her, had really opened up her heart to my son. She is always smiling and seems eager to learn. It may have taken John some time to warm up to her, but because of Ms. Ashley taking the effort to get to know my son he enjoys having her as his teacher! John is my life and I take such joy knowing that I made the best decision I could for his educational needs. Not only are you a child care facility, you all are a huge part of our family. Thank you so much for everything!
