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!
Music Explorers™ (2 – 4 Years)
KinderCare families are already giving a standing ovation to our newest Learning Adventures program: Music Explorers! Built entirely from scratch, our new program teaches kids to sing, move, listen, play instruments, and even create their own tunes. It 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.)
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
KinderCare in Victor is one of the best parenting choices we have made so far! We entered the daycare scene after a turbulent three years of family run in home care; very nervous about what we would encounter. What we found was the most amazing center with teachers who truly care! We soon learned that our son had some social/behavioral development delays; which presented some definite challenges for the day to day. We were so thankful for the time and energy offered him each day. There was never a moment where he was made to feel different, excluded or where the other children viewed him differently. There was never a feeling as though we were putting them out by bringing him there, or a fear of what would happen while we were not with him. Quite the contrary, the teachers were inclusive, out-going, giving and loving.They truly offered the best of themselves to help him find the best in himself! They looked for and found the best ways to reach and challenge him on his level. I am not sure how they manage to get and keep such amazing staff, but somehow they have mastered the art! If we were to do it all over again, we would skip the first three years of in home with family, and go straight to KinderCare! Our child is now a happy, healthy, and well rounded five year old! He loves school breaks when he can return to KinderCare all day, because he knows he is loved, valued and accepted.”
The Jensen Family - KinderCare Parent
KinderCare Fishers Run has been nothing short of amazing to our son, and to us as parents, from day one. Our son started there when he was seven weeks old, and since that day we have felt like we have an extended part of our family. The teachers treat our son as if he is their own, and there are no words to express the gratitude we have as parents for that. Seeing our son smile when we drop him off and pick him up reassures us that we made the right decision with enrolling him at KinderCare. We are so grateful to every single staff member in that center for what they do daily for not only our son but his little friends, too. There is tremendous comfort in knowing that your child is happy, safe and loved while he is away from home. And that he is learning and growing with the necessary support each and every day. We love KinderCare Fishers Run.”
The Grondin Family - KinderCare Parent
We have experienced each level of education and care at the Fishers Run KinderCare with three children since 2009 when we moved into the area. Due to the intimate nature of the Fishers Run KinderCare the teachers really get to know the kids and their unique personalities so they are able to meet each child where they are at on any given day. I have found the staff to be incredibly professional and educated, yet nurturing and flexible at the same time. I would highly recommend KinderCare to any family in the area as all three of our children were cared for, loved, and well prepared for Kindergarten when they turned five.”
The White Family - KinderCare Parent
Our twin toddlers absolutely love KinderCare! They didn't even notice we were gone when they dropped them off their first day. It is a great feeling knowing your children are well taken care of!”
The Smith Family - KinderCare Parent
We are a huge fan of the Fishers Run KinderCare! Our only child attends the Prekindergarten program and we are so pleased with the personal attention he gets and the loving care the teachers provide. I never have to worry while at work and when our next little one comes along we will certainly enroll him or her at the same center. We love this place!”
