KinderCare is a full-service child development center that serves children ages 6 weeks to school-age children. KinderCare states it offers a balanced program that teaches children intellectually, spiritually, socially and emotionally. The company has centers across the nation that offer a range of childcare, preschool and enrichment programs.
According to KinderCare, the company's facilities foster a safe environment for children to thrive in. All activities align with one of the 140 learning standards that comprise the KinderCare experience. The curriculum develops sound judgment, critical thinking, reasoning, self-esteem, physical wellness and confidence. Each program balances structured activities with free play that is flexible for each child's individual needs.
Most KinderCare centers are nationally accredited by one of the three National Early Childhood Accreditation Organizations. It can take up to two years for a center to be accredited due to the rigorous standards required for accreditation.
The teachers at KinderCare are trained individuals. The teachers attend training programs twice a year to stay informed on current teaching practices. Each classroom maintains a low teacher-to-student ratio that creates a nurturing environment that is void of overworked educators. KinderCare develops intimate relationships between the teacher and the parents to help guide the child throughout each program.
