AMERICA’S MOST ACCREDITED
We’re so proud!
Nationally only 10% of daycares are accredited – nearly 100% of our learning centers are. That’s a big difference,
and that means KinderCare kids are getting the very best. Here’s why.
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.
Cerritos KinderCare Programs
Infant Programs (6 weeks-1 year)
Leaving your baby in someone elseâ€™s care is a big step. Everyone at our
centersâ€”most importantly, our naturally gifted infant teachersâ€”will work with
you to make sure the transition goes smoothly. When you step into our infant
classroom, youâ€™ll see how much we want your infant to feel safe, loved, and
ready to explore their world.
Toddler Programs (1-2 Years)
Everything in our toddler classroom is designed for little explorers. Thatâ€™s
because a lot is going on at this age. When your child is wandering all over the
place, that means theyâ€™re learning and discovering new things every day. Weâ€™ll
help them explore their interests (and find new ones!) as they play and learn.
Discovery Preschool Programs (2-3 Years)
This age is filled with so much wonder and curiosity. Thatâ€™s why we offer a ton
of books and toys and bring artwork down to kids eye level. Children in
discovery preschool also begin to learn how we all work together in a
classroom. Simple math and science, pretend play, and group play help them
get used to a more structured school setting.
Preschool Programs (3-4 Years)
This age is all about expression, when kids really start to form their own ideas
about what they want to play and how they want to create. Every day in our
preschool classroom, your child will explore science experiments, create
artwork, and play pretendâ€”all the skills needed for their big next step:
Prekindergarten Programs (4-5 Years)
When you walk into one of our pre-K classrooms, youâ€™ll see artwork and
writing displayed around the room. Labels are everywhere to help kids connect
letters with words. Youâ€™ll also see pictures on the walls that reflect the families
in our community.Â Your child will also deepen their knowledge in language,
math, science, Spanish, and social skills.
Interactive Kindergarten (5-6 Years)
Kindergarten is a critical year for young learners. Experienced KinderCare teachers will
tap into your childâ€™s natural curiosity to help get them even more prepared for
elementary school. Our engaging lessons make the most of current technology while
offering plenty of hands-on play and exploration.
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. Theyâ€™ll whip up everything from Southwest
rainbow lettuce wraps to pumpkin muffins, building their skills in STEM, communication,
and more along the way. And yesâ€”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! Kids will learn to sing, move, listen, play
instruments, and even create their own tunes. Our original curriculum 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 schoolâ€”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 to develop
vocabulary and conversation skills. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers,
colors, animals, family, body parts, and pets, as well as how to engage conversationally
during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.
STEM Innovators (3-8 Years)
Youâ€™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 kidsâ€™ natural ability to
make sense of the world and applies it to robotics, chemistry, coding, geology, and
more. While your child experiments, theyâ€™ll discover how to use technology to do
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!
A KINDERCARE TEACHER WITH
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.
We put our best-in-class teachers in a best-in-class workplace. We’re so proud to have been named one of Gallup’s 37 winners of the Great Workplace Award.
When you put great teachers in an engaging center, your children will experience
an amazing place to learn and grow.
Don’t take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!
My son has been coming here since he was 4 months old; he is now 2 and a half. He had bad eczema and intermittent hives, and the teachers were very helpful in repeatedly applying lotion to him and administering Benadryl. Over the years, they have really come to know my son, and he loves all of the teachers. He also loves the water play and jumpers in the summer, and music class. This is a great environment for social and mental development. They even helped with potty training. Thanks, KinderCare!
Lanny H. – KinderCare Parent

Details of fatal knife attack on kindergarten
Six people were killed in a knife attack on a kindergarten in southern China. A young man was detained following a fatal attack that also wounded one person.
Six people were killed and one wounded in a morning knife attack on a kindergarten in southern China. A 25-year-old man has been detained in connection with a fatal incident in Lianjiang city, Guangdong province, according to The Guardian, according to a local police statement posted on social media.
The man (reportedly his last name is Wu) started to rage at 7:40 am. Among the victims of the villain were one teacher, two parents and three children, according to AFP, citing a representative of the local government. The attacker was caught in twenty minutes.
The police classified this case as a “deliberate attack”. Meanwhile, the motives for the terrible attack on the children’s institution remain unclear.
Attacks on schoolchildren have been a constant problem in China for many years, according to The Guardian. More than a decade ago, then-Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao went on television after a series of attacks, promising to improve school safety and efforts to tackle major problems.
Attacks continue and often spark mass anger, although strict gun control laws mean attackers typically carry knives or makeshift explosives.
Monday’s attack was the most viewed topic on the Chinese social media site, reaching over 220 million views by mid-afternoon.
Last August, three people were killed in an attack in southern Jiangxi province that also targeted a kindergarten.
In April 2021, two children were killed and 16 others injured when a knife-wielding man entered a kindergarten in southern China.
Last June, 37 students and two adults were injured by a knife attacker at an elementary school in southern China.
And in November 2019, a man climbed the wall of a kindergarten in southwestern Yunnan province and splashed people with a corrosive liquid, injuring 51 of them, mostly students.
In the same year, eight schoolchildren were killed and two others were injured in a “school-related criminal case” in the central province of Hubei, and a 40-year-old man was arrested.
