What Learning Looks Like

Our talented early-childhood teachers set kids down the path toward becoming lifelong learners in a positive, safe, and nurturing environment.

Our Programs

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.

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. 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. Qué pasa?

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!

Our Teachers

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!


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.

Our Families

Don't take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • I was nervous about sending my children to a child development center; I always felt they would be so impersonal. But General Booth KinderCare proved me wrong. From the first day my children Alana, 5 and Alyssa, 2 started attending about a year and a half ago the staff members have always made my children feel as if the center is a home away from home, always going above and beyond to make sure my children and all the children there are well taken care of and happy. My family and I view the staff members as extension of our family and I am excited for our newest addition to meet them, and I know she will be well cared for!

  • My experience with KinderCare on General Booth Blvd. has been refreshingly pleasant compared to other preschool and day care centers in this area, and I have experienced several of them.  The center is always clean and organized.  The teachers and center director communicate effectively and promptly to the families as a whole and individually about my son.  My child comes home excited about his day at school and is able to tell us all that he has learned.  I am very pleased with his education, structure, and the care that they have provided my child with.  I have watched him grow tremendously at this center!

    Lisa - KinderCare Parent
  • We started taking our first child to Kindercare on General Booth in 2009. Since then, we have had the pleasure of watching her grow from a baby into a smart and wonderful young girl. When she started elementary school this year, she was further along on the learning curve than a lot of the other children. That was due hugely in part to the great teachers at Kindercare.

    We were blessed in having a second child in 2013. He started attending Kindercare the same year and we can say that he is receiving the same care and attention that our first child received. Seeing his day to day development has been nothing but astonishing.

    Kindercare always provides a safe and loving environment that kids can learn and flourish in. Tiffany, the center director, has always been willing to answer any questions and address any concerns that may come up.

    Back in 2009, all we were looking for was a daycare facility that was close to work and reasonably priced. What we found was so much more. They are not just a daycare, but a school with a great learning environment. We have built a great rapport with everyone at the center and consider them part of our extended  family. It is so wonderful to see just how much the staff truly loves and cares for our children. The decision to go with Kindercare was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

    Amy & Vernon - KinderCare Parent
  • When you walk into the classroom and hear laughter, nothing is more comforting. Leah started KinderCare at 4 months old. She is now 4 years old. From the exceptional educational curriculum to the caring teachers, I wouldn't have her anywhere else. It's a great feeling to know that when I drop my child off at school, she is excited about her day. I look forward to hearing about all the new things that she learned. KinderCare is a part of our family!

    Dawn - KinderCare Parent
  • I have been taking my son to Kindercare for over two years now and we love everything about it! First and foremost, the director, Tiffany, is absolutely wonderful! She deeply cares about all of the students and the families and goes above and beyond to help in any way she can. Secondly, the teachers are amazing! Most of the teachers have been there since my son first enrolled and have been able to see him develop and grow through the years. My son is currently in the three year old classroom and his teacher takes her job very seriously. She really takes time and effort to make sure all of her students are learning and having fun at the same time. It's very reassuring and comforting knowing I am leaving my child in great hands each day. We feel privileged to be a part of the Kindercare family!

    Olivia - KinderCare Parent
  • Our family's relationship with Kindercare has been nothing short of excellent in the last 3 years. The decision in choosing a daycare was made easy by our visit to Kindercare. It was out third site and as soon as we met with the staff we knew it was the right one for our son. Chase started attending when he was 3 months old. the staff and the the facilities were geared toward his comfort and development since day one. The environment and curriculum have helped our son advance socially and academically. The quality of personal attention, safety, and professionalism exhibited by the staff is second to none. In each class he has transitioned to, the communication of the teachers with us on his adjustment has made it easier on us and Chase. The skills learned by our son and the relationships he forged at your facility will remain with our son for the rest of his life. We trust Kindercare and we recommend Kindercare to everyone!

    Bryce & Tina - KinderCare Parent
  • Kindercare is like my second family! Having no relatives in the area, Kindercare is there for me. The teachers genuinely care about my girls as if they were their own. I never have to worry about them while I'm at work. The school age teachers help with homework. The preschool teachers nurture and love them. My girls are happy when I pick them up. I feel fortunate to have had Kindercare be a part of my family for the past six years.

    Laura - KinderCare Parent
  • I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to all the wonderful teachers and staff at kinderCare for doing such an amazing job. I am extremely grateful for all the help, support, compassion and patience you all have towards my kids.. It makes me very happy to hear my kids say the thing they love most about KinderCare is there teachers . I am very pleased to be part of the kinderCare family and look forward to the journey ahead ."

    Vicky - KinderCare Parent
  • We have had kids at the General Booth KinderCare for nin years now and I feel that the service we get now is better than it has ever been. We have a 12 year old that spent 5 years there and a now 4 year old that has been there since he was 6 weeks old. He looks forward to going everyday. They know and care for our son just like he was a child of their own. He has been from the infant room to pre-k class and all of the teachers have always known what was the best way for him or any other child to learn if they were having troubles with the daily lessons. The teachers always have the children's best interest in mind through out the day. If we have ever had an issue with anything in the center, the director or assitant director is ready to hear what you have to say and very quick to fix the problems. You are always greeted when you walk into your child's classroom. If I had to choose a daycare for my kids over again, I would not make another choice.
