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.
Fisher's Landing 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.
Kindergarten Programs (5–6 Years)
Welcome to kindergarten: the gateway to grade school and everything that comes next! Offered in select centers, our kindergarten programs have small class sizes and curriculums that mix learning and fun. The basic building blocks of reading, writing, math, and science are key in kindergarten, so we make sure they get lots of practice in all of these areas.
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.
Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program
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.
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!

Child care is one of the biggest priorities—and expenses—for hardworking families like yours. We partner with state and local agencies in Washington to provide tuition subsidies where we can, including the agency below:
There may be other available funding sources for families living in Vancouver, Washington and we have subsidy coordinators standing by that can discuss potential solutions for your family. Even if you are not subsidy eligible there may be other options in Clark County to help with tuition.
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.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
I visited several preschools/daycares before choosing Fishers Landing KinderCare. They are very thorough and pay attention to safety, education and provide quality care for the children entrusted to them. There is a low teacher-student ratio (1:4 for the infant room). Everyone I have met has been very kind and helpful. I love the infant room teachers Jessica and Shauna, too. When I go to KinderCare, there are never any tears - she is excited to be there. KinderCare provides meals that are well balanced and age appropriate and they give you a report at the end of each day so you know what your child ate, what he/she learned and how the day went overall. I will recommend KinderCare to others and I am very grateful I found such a great place to partner with.”
Vanette - KinderCare Parent
Jessica (the Center Director) pulled up the shoe strings and really made this center a very ‘Zen’ type place to be. My daughter LOVES coming in in the early morning and hearing the instrumental music going on in the foyer. Leah has made great leaps and bounds and KinderCare Fisher’s Landing has been SUCH and integral part of her ‘village’ she truly is blessed to have this team of people as part of her daily routine. I thank Jessica for ALWAYS addressing quickly any issue we have had and no issue I have had has been the building or staff’s fault. But they have always stepped up to make changes that affect Leah in a positive way. Thank you all so much for being Leah’s guardian when I am not there. You are all very important to her.”
Tracy - KinderCare Parent
We were only at Fisher's Landing KinderCare for a few months and left due to relocation. The facility was on point with what I would expect from a child care center. The selling point for me from the moment we walked into the 3-4 year old classroom was the teacher. Ms. Lucilla is amazing! She was so kind and loving to our daughter and to all of the children. The first couple of days were difficult, as my daughter was adjusting to a new school, and the transition in general, after being home for the year prior. She told me that when she missed me, Ms. Lucilla would give her a hug until she felt better. It may not seem like much, but it meant the world to me...and to my daughter. I felt confident she was in capable, caring hands, and it helped me worry less throughout the day. We will miss you Ms. Lucilla! Thanks for all you did for us and the love you showed our daughter.”
Tara D. - KinderCare Parent
We moved from out of state 1 week ago and began our 20 month old daughter at this KinderCare the day after arriving. We have used 2 in home daycares previously, both amazing and loving women, however we could not be more overjoyed or impressed by our daughter's teachers, Kaelyn & Loni, as well as communication with Director Jessica. The allowance of parents to drop off and pick up inside the classroom, along with the daily logs and communication when we pick up is wonderful. My daughter is not able to communicate how her day has been or what they did so we are extremely grateful we get to find this out verbally from the teachers, as well as the daily logs, instead of being pushed out the door as I have heard and experienced at other centers. By moving to another state we have made such a big transition in our daughter's life and are wanting to make sure she feels comfortable and happy each day. Less than one week at KinderCare and drop off is now a breeze. We hope our experience remains as positive as it has started.”
Jessica - KinderCare Parent
My boys go here and we LOVE it. The teachers here are amazing, they are caring, happy, loving, patient, full of life, and consider these kids family. The Director Jessica is phenomenal! She came in and made it BEAUTIFUL and new and welcoming! She is loving and active with the kids and keeps the center in order. I couldn't ask for a better group of women to care for my boys! If you're looking for a daycare don't look any further this is the only place to bring them.
