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.)

A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
An Artist's Heart
Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My daughter Ripley was enrolled full-time at the Knowledge Beginnings on 162nd in Vancouver, WA since she was four months old to just past her fourth birthday. We had a fantastic experience with KB, and would highly recommend it to anyone. The teachers were kind, enthusiastic, and well-trained. I always felt like I was leaving my daughter in very good hands. If I had any concerns, the teachers would listen to me and help me address them. When Ripley inevitably had bumps and bruises or colds and the flu, they always took great care of her, and made sure I was immediately aware. They helped her achieve many life skills milestones, such as eating solid food, sitting at a table and using utensils for a meal, and (very importantly!) potty training. As a baby she was held often and given affectionate stimulation. As a toddler she was encouraged to explore her world and learn to get along with other children. As a preschooler she was taught the beginnings of early literacy, and proper classroom etiquette.
Thank you to Felicia Hintzke, Center Director, and all of the Knowledge Beginnings staff, for being such wonderful partners in helping to raise my child,. You'll always hold a special memory in the hearts of our family.”

We enrolled our daughter at the Vancouver Knowledge Beginnings (near Fisher's Landing) at a very young age, around two years old. We did a lot of research first, as our child's safety was, and continues to be, our number one priority. Although this location wasn't very close to us, we felt it was the best for our daughter. After meeting the center director, Felicia, and some of the teachers, we knew we were in the right place. We did opt for the enrichment classes, math and phonics. She finally moved on/graduated to kindergarten at the age of five. The education she received there propelled her in kindergarten this past year. She continues to miss being there, often reminiscing about her time there. We would whole-heartedly recommend this location with this team to any parent. Thanks Felicia and the KB Team!”
