"For me, the best parts of working at KinderCare are the people and culture. Previously, I was in the non-profit world; KinderCare’s mission really resonates with me and shares the same commitment to improving the lives of people and building a better future. Also, employees have the opportunity to grow in their roles, which shows that the company believes in its people and supports employee development.”

Teacher & Staff Opportunities

"KinderCare puts so much care and detail into everything. They want the best for the children and families they serve, so there was no way I could NOT work here! Throughout my time with KinderCare, I’ve been to every center in the state. I’ve seen how staff members are supported in so many different ways. You always feel like you have someone there—you never feel alone.”

— Cydney, KinderCare Teacher

Everyone Is Part of Our Circle

At KinderCare, you’ll find that employees are treated with transparency, dignity, and respect. Whether you’re caring for and educating the children we serve or supporting families from afar, you’ll have the tools and resources to make positive change within your community.


"I feel very fortunate to work for an organization that prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion. Over the last two years, in partnership with the Advisory Caucus and the Strategy Team, employees from within KinderCare shared their experiences and perspectives that helped shape the strategic priorities for our DEI journey. It’s a people-centric approach to a people-centered journey. As an Asian American who has immigrant parents, this work is completely personal. We all want to belong and feel valued, and that’s what KinderCare’s approach to DEI is all about.”

— Jane, Director of Champions Summer Programming (Corporate)
