Davis Square KinderCare 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.
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover how to use technology to do amazing things!
“ My son, Logan, currently attends KinderCare in Somerville, MA. He is in the infant program. My experience with KinderCare has been more than wonderful. The teachers are experienced and organized. They keep me and my family informed on Logan's day. They are professional and great communicators. Daily pictures of his activities are sent. The environment feels like family. I wouldn't change one thing about this center.Show more
“ My son started daycare when he was three months old. The only reason I was able to go back to work without worrying (too much!) is because I knew he was being loved and cared for so well at KinderCare. When he started, he cried a lot and didn’t nap on his own, and they have really helped him work on his development! He is now a happy 9 month old who sleeps through the night, and every time I talk to a teacher in the hallway, I realize that all of them actually know him, which is amazing and wonderful. One of our favorite teachers, Krystal, will sometimes send me pictures of him after he’s just eaten or done an activity, and it makes my day!Show more
“ One of the things I'm most grateful for is the genuinely caring relationship that Nathaniel's teachers have had with him you can see this caring in the look on Miss Meesh's face as she is interacting with her class.Show more
“ Ms. Meesh has been an excellent teacher to Zoe while she was in the multi-age and we are happy that Zoe still gets to interact with Ms. Meesh in the evenings. We love that she has so much energy and positivity. The kids love her and she is also good at enforcing good behavior. We see that Ms. Meesh loves her job and working with the kids. She runs a tight ship in the classroom and yet you see the classroom is full of joy. We think it great how enthusiastic Ms. Meesh is about various school events (like the end of the summer party) and how much effort she puts into decorating the classroom together with her team of teachers. Her excitement is contagious and has contributed to an wonderful environment for the children.Show more
“ My son attended the KinderCare location in Somerville, MA from February 2019 to December 2019. We recently changed our daycare for logistical reasons. I wanted to write a note to acknowledge how well I think the center’s director, Kathleen Nichols is doing. She is a smart and thoughtful person, and she and Antonella Mancuso have been working diligently to improve the center after a tumultuous turnover in staff at the beginning of 2019. I am confident in Kathleen’s leadership skills and have always felt that she listens and cares for the concerns and feedback from parents. My son was a happy student while he was there, and I think that Kathleen has been recruiting a strong staff to support the center.Show more

“As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing to the staff at KinderCare every day, and I am grateful for the loving care and guidance he receives. The teachers and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son has been blessed with awesome teachers who understand his challenges, and handle him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that go on each day at "school!" Thank you to the KinderCare child care organization for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day, and a special thanks to Karen and her staff; they continue to do amazing works of ‘heart’ with all children.”
