KinderCare does more than educate; they help children build self-confidence for life. The programs give children a solid foundation on which to build, wherever they go after KinderCare. They’ll be prepared to think big, feel strong, and aim high.
Results from the TerraNova and BRIGANCE national assessments demonstrate that KinderCare kids are better prepared for first grade than other children. Whether they’re taking their first baby steps or learning how to share, they achieve their developmental milestones sooner.
By the time children are two, kids who’ve been with KinderCare since they were babies often reach those milestones six weeks before other toddlers. At five, KinderCare children are nearly nine months ahead. KinderCare kids who attend the programs for a year or more consistently test at a first grade level for math and reading before they even start the first grade.
However, early childhood education is about more than achieving knowledge. It’s also about helping a child develop the emotional and social skills they’ll need for the rest of their lives. To that end, every KinderCare classroom is like a mini-community where children are guided to succeed on their own terms. The low teacher-to-student ratio allows teachers to focus on the needs and individual learning styles of each child.
KinderCare teachers do more than teach; they care, nurturing every child, and paying attention to each child’s individual needs. The teachers believe in the children, giving them the confidence to make new friends and try new things.
KinderCare devotes more resources and time to teacher training than any other childcare center.
The curriculum and the teachers inspire a life-long love of learning. Whether they’re building with blocks or playing nurse to a teddy bear, children build confidence while playing with friends their age in a safe and supportive environment. The teachers give the children the freedom to try something new, be themselves, and make new friends.
