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)
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.
Before- and After-School Programs (5–12 Years)
You can count on us to provide reliable care for your school-ager while you’re at work, with safe transportation from our center to your child’s school and back! Whether your child wants to start a drama club, build a volcano, or create a comic book, they will have a place to follow their dreams. Your child will start and end the day with a whole lot of fun!
School Break Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)
Winter break, spring break, summer break—when school’s out (but you still need to work), you can count on KinderCare to provide a safe and supportive learning environment that’s focused on fun. We welcome children ages 5–12 during school break times and make sure they have a sensational, screen-free experience they won’t forget.
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. 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!
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. While your child experiments, they’ll discover 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
"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.
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I love that I am able to bring my children for the camps that are offered during my children's breaks. They have fun and learn so much not only academically but also about being part of a community.”

My daughter and I moved to GA at the end of May for my new job. My child was to be cared for by her grandmother. Life happens and she wasn't able to watch her anymore. I saw Kindercare around the corner from my job. I decided to place my daughter there. When I went was was given a warm welcome from the teachers and management.I sat and talked with Ms Heather, the director, for a bit and I felt that yes this is the best place for my daughter.Ms Heather not only has a great staff that cares for the children. She explained what a permissive transfer so my daughter can attend a school where Kindercare could pick her up at school!!!! WOW!!!!!!Miss Meghan takes the time to help with homework.It's also very clean. I have never come in that there were unpleasant smells.Ms Heather and her team do an Wonderfully Awesome Job!!!A happy stress free mom because of your Kindercare!!!!!”
Billie W. - KinderCare Parent
My son has been attending KinderCare since he was three months old. He's my first and only child and I had no real experience with babies and toddlers before I had him. The teachers and staff at KinderCare are so great about answering questions and offering suggestions on everything from when to start solid foods to naptime schedules to potty training. They never make me feel silly for asking questions and anytime I want to talk about my son's development with them they are available to listen and give me feedback. The center is always impeccably clean and the staff is so friendly. I know my son is in a nurturing, educational environment while I am at work.”
Debra P. - KinderCare Parent
Our son started with KinderCare at eight weeks, and we have watched him grow into a vibrant two-year-old with remarkable cognitive, social and physical abilities. This center has a culture of caring and nurturing among its warm and friendly staff. We leave our son each day assured that he will be safe, cared for and have lots of fun learning.”
Bryan and Kanisha B. - KinderCare Parent
My son lights up every morning when we ask him if he's ready to go to school! The teachers and administrators at our Suwanee KinderCare are all so loving and kind that he races in every morning! He has so many friends and is so proud of the things that his teachers help him create, we couldn't ask for anything better than the loving and supportive environment these wonderful people have created!”
