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.
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.
Participating Child Care Aware Center
KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care 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. 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!
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

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.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My daughter has been attending KinderCare for about two years now. The curriculum has been great and exceeded my expectations. She comes home every day telling me stories about how much fun she had and what she is learning. The teachers have all been phenomenal! They work with not only my daughter, but myself to make sure we're both comfortable. I have loved our time at KinderCare.”
E. Family - KinderCare Parent
The care my family and I receive at KinderCare Learning Center is wonderful; I truly appreciate how attentive the staff is to the needs of my family. My son has attended the center for a year now. He was in the Preschool room and the program was so great that he was advanced going into Kindergarten. I would recommend KinderCare to any and all families looking for care for their children.”
S. Family - KinderCare Parent
My husband and I had our first child, Olivia, last October and one of the most difficult decisions we’ve made thus far as new parents was trying to find the best daycare for Olivia. We were worried about finding the right fit – a daycare that would provide genuine loving care to our daughter in our absence while also helping her grow developmentally during such an important time of her life. We did our research and visited different centers to be sure we were doing our due diligence. When we came to the Stafford Kindercare, we both felt immediately the warmth and passion from the staff about their work which took a little of the edge off of our anxiety about leaving our daughter with “strangers”. Our daughter is now 9 months old and has been with her “ladies” in the infant room for 6 months. She has received nothing but the best of care from all of the staff members. From the moment she started smiling, my husband and I always noted that she offers a big smile to her care providers when we drop her off in the morning. When we pick her up in the afternoon, she is always clean, dry, well fed, and happy. Her care providers have helped her through some important developmental milestones, including eating more solid foods, clapping, waving, and now crawling and pulling up. The ladies in the center have won our hearts with the excellent and nurturing care they provide our precious daughter.”
C. Family - KinderCare Parent
I want to thank you all for your hard work and dedication to KinderCare. My 2 girls have loved the enviroment and learning experiences while at your center. The teachers have been wonderful and always shown dedication and love towards both of them as well as all the children in their care.”
F. Family - KinderCare Parent
As a Single Parent, I thank the center Teachers and Staff for their hardwork and care they have given my daughter. during her time at this location. Continue your excellent service and program for others to hopefully benefit from more than we have thus far.”
G. Family - KinderCare Parent
“I transitioned my son from an in-home daycare to KinderCare at 10 months old. I was very nervous about the transition but the staff at KinderCare made it an easy transition and quickly made me feel very comfortable. All the teachers in the infant and toddler room are so caring and I truly know they have my son's best interests at heart. Not only are his needs being met, but he comes home learning new things every day. I especially enjoy getting sent home pictures of craft time and the art projects he has completed. It's always a good sign when your toddler wants to stay at daycare and play longer when you go to pick him up at the end of the day. I would recommend KinderCare to anyone looking for good care in Stafford.”
