Overview of Programs and Curriculum

Your child’s bright future starts with early education.

From curriculum to teachers, our approach to early education inspires a love of learning. Whether they’re building a skyscraper, cooking an imaginary feast, or healing a teddy bear’s runny nose, your child will build confidence for life having fun with friends their age in our safe and supportive classrooms. They’ll find teachers who believe in them and give them the freedom to be themselves, try something new, and make new friends.

Health and safety have always been our top priority because knowing your child is safe means you can feel sound. Learn more about how we’re putting safety first to protect our families and staff.

Our classrooms are warm and welcoming!

Whether you’ve been part of our community before, or are new to the KinderCare family, we’re ready to welcome your child into the classroom. Our curriculum focuses on early academics, physical activity, and social emotional learning to nurture healthy bodies, happy hearts, and growing minds. We regularly assess your child’s progress with key developmental milestones so we can build a learning plan just for them—and continue the conversation with you after the bell.


Early childhood is the best time to learn!

Right now, your child’s brain is growing faster than it ever will in their whole life, making amazing connections every second. That’s why every learning moment counts! Our classrooms are designed around your child’s unique needs, and our curriculum is built from the latest research in early childhood development to help little minds grow. 

The importance of accreditation

Our centers aren’t just licensed—they’re accredited, too! Accreditation means that a nationally recognized outside agency validates everything we do. You can read more about accreditation here.

Making the journey a better one

The longer a child stays at KinderCare, the better they perform. We know because we regularly measure our students’ educational progress through assessments. You can read more about our assessments here.

Our classrooms for babies to kindergarteners

Our classrooms are a pretty special place to be. You’re bound to notice all sorts of activity and fun around every corner. That’s what happens when you give kids the freedom to play, learn, and explore.
