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.

SCHOOL-READY

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.

Cromwell KinderCare Programs

Infant Programs (6 weeks–1 year)

Leaving your baby in someone else’s care is a big step. Everyone at our
centers—most importantly, our naturally gifted infant teachers—will work with
you to make sure the transition goes smoothly. When you step into our infant
classroom, you’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. That’s
because a lot is going on at this age. When your child is wandering all over the
place, that means they’re learning and discovering new things every day. We’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. That’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 pretend—all the skills needed for their big next step:
kindergarten!

Prekindergarten Programs (4–5 Years)

When you walk into one of our pre-K classrooms, you’ll see artwork and
writing displayed around the room. Labels are everywhere to help kids connect
letters with words. You’ll also see pictures on the walls that reflect the families
in our community.  Your child will also deepen their knowledge in language,
math, science, Spanish, and social skills.

Kindergarten Programs (5–6 Years)

Welcome to kindergarten: the gateway to grade school and everything that
comes next! Offered in select centers, our kindergarten programs have small
class sizes and curriculums that mix learning and fun. The basic building
blocks of reading, writing, math, and science are key in kindergarten, so we
make sure they get lots of practice in all of these areas.

Before- and After-School Programs (5–12 Years)

You can count on us to provide reliable care for your school-ager while you’re
at work, with safe transportation from our center to your child’s school and
back! Whether your child wants to start a drama club, build a volcano, or
create a comic book, they will have a place to follow their dreams. Your child
will start and end the day with a whole lot of fun!

School Break Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)

Winter break, spring break, summer break—when school’s out (but you still need to work), you
can count on KinderCare to provide a safe and supportive learning environment that’s focused
on fun. We welcome children ages 5–12 during school break times and make sure they have a
sensational, screen-free experience they won’t forget.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare partners with Child Care Aware® of America to offer fee assistance for
Active Duty military families and flexible support to fit their needs when care at a Child
Development Center on the installation is not available.

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. They’ll whip up everything from Southwest
rainbow lettuce wraps to pumpkin muffins, building their skills in STEM, communication,
and more along the way. And yes—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 school—and we
have the data to prove it.)

STEM Innovators (3-8 Years)

You’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 kids’ natural ability to
make sense of the world and applies it to robotics, chemistry, coding, geology, and
more. While your child experiments, they’ll discover how to use technology to do
amazing things!

Our Teachers

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!

Family Stories

Don’t take our word for it. Hear what our families have to say about our amazing center!

  • I am so thankful for this center for the great care and education they provide to both of my children. Kristin, the center director, is exceptional. She has gone above and beyond to help my family and to accommodate our sometimes difficult schedules. She has  addressed any concerns we have had immediately.  Recently, she has begun posting pictures of the children during their daily activities for parents to see on our Facebook group. I appreciate the time she takes to share this with us . It really brightens my work day to sneak a peak at my littles ones enjoying their days. I can’t say enough good things about Kristin and her staff.  

    Thanks for all you continue to do for my family. 

    Lori C. – KinderCare Parent
  • We love the warm and friendly atmosphere at KinderCare. All the staff make my kids and I feel good. I really appreciate little things like Ms. Diana running out after us with our missing Binky! Keep up the great work!

    Seb – KinderCare Parent
  • I was skeptical that we would find a daycare “good enough” for our son. The director gave me a tour of the infant room and provided a wealth of knowledge. She answered questions I didn’t even know I had! Our son’s teacher’s care about our little boy as if he is their own, it is apparent that they truly love their jobs. Recently we noticed two new things that our son was doing; he started dancing and giving hugs (he is now nine months old). When I inquired with his teachers about these awesome new skills they laughed and talked about how they dance during the day and teach the children to be kind. The impact they have on our boy is amazing. When people ask us about our daycare, we tell them how much we love it at KinderCare.

OLIVER CROMWELL

Oliver Cromwell, the flamboyant and inspiring military leader who led the Parliamentary forces to victory in the English Civil War, is the man to whom the main credit for finally establishing parliamentary democracy as the form of government in England belongs. Cromwell was born in 1599 in the English city of Huntington. In his youth, he lived in England, torn apart by religious strife and ruled by a king who believed in absolute monarchy and established it in the country. Cromwell himself was a farmer, a rural intellectual and a sincere puritan. In 1628 he was elected to parliament, but he did not serve in it for long, because the next year King Charles I decided to dissolve parliament and rule the country himself. The king did not call a new parliament until 1640, when he needed money for a war with Scotland. This new parliament, of which Cromwell again became a member, demanded guarantees and protection in the event of a resumption of the king’s despotic rule. But Charles I did not want to submit to parliament, and in 1642 war broke out between the supporters of the king and the supporters of parliament. Cromwell chose the side of Parliament. Returning to Huntington, he organized a cavalry unit to fight against the king. During the four years of the war, his remarkable abilities as a commander were widely recognized. Cromwell played a major role in the decisive Battle of Marston Moor (July 2, 1644), which marked the turning point in the course of the war, and in the pivotal Battle of Nesby (June 14, 1645). In 1646 the war ended. Charles I was imprisoned, and Cromwell was recognized as the most successful commander of the parliamentary forces. But peace did not come, because the parliamentary side was divided into two wings with completely different goals, and because the king, having learned about this, escaped retribution. Things escalated over the course of a year, and a second civil war finally broke out, hastened by the release of King Charles and his attempt to muster his forces. The result of this new conflict was the defeat of the royal troops, which inflicted on them by Cromwell, the expulsion from parliament of members with the most conservative views and the execution of the king in January 1649.of the year.

England now became a republic (called the Commonwealth), temporarily governed by a Council of State with Cromwell as chairman. But the monarchists soon seized power in Ireland and Scotland and supported the son of the executed king, the future Charles II. Cromwell then carried out successful invasions of Ireland and Scotland with his troops. The long period of wars ended in 1652 with the complete defeat of the royal forces.

Now that the struggle is over, it’s time to organize a new government. However, problems remained with the constitutional form of government that this government had to choose. The problem was never solved during Cromwell’s lifetime. The Puritan commander was able to bring the forces of the opponents of absolute monarchy to victory, but neither his power nor his prestige was enough to resolve social conflicts between his supporters and force them to accept a new constitution, since these conflicts were intertwined with religious strife, which not only separated Protestants from Catholics, but also divided each of the groups. When Cromwell came to power, all that was left of the Parliament of 1640 was a small, unrepresentative group of extremists, the so-called remnants of the Long Parliament.

Cromwell’s first attempt was to negotiate new elections. When these negotiations failed, he dissolved the remnants of the Long Parliament by force (April 20, 1653). From then until Cromwell’s death in 1658, three different parliaments were formed and dissolved, and two constitutions were adopted, but none of them acted with success. During this period, Cromwell ruled with the support of the army. In fact, he was a military dictator. However, his constant attempts to establish a democratic order, as well as the refusal of the throne when it was offered to him, prove that he did not aspire to dictatorship. This was a necessity, as Cromwell’s supporters were unable to organize a workable government. From 1653 to 1658 Cromwell, as Protector, ruled over England, Ireland and Scotland. During these five years, he created a generally good government and organized administration in Britain, improved a number of primitive laws, and supported education. Cromwell believed in religious tolerance and allowed Jews to settle in England and practice their faith there. (More than three centuries ago they were expelled from England by King Edward I.) He also led a successful foreign policy. Cromwell died of malaria in 1658 in London.

Oliver Cromwell’s eldest son Richard replaced his father, but his reign was short-lived. In 1660, the monarchy was restored, and Charles II took the throne. The remains of Oliver Cromwell were dug up and exposed to ridicule. But this act of revenge could no longer hide the fact that the struggle for royal absolutism was lost. Charles II understood this very well and did not try to challenge the supreme power of parliament. When his successor James I attempted to restore royal absolutism, he was deposed in the bloody revolution of 1688. The result was what Cromwell wanted in 1640, a constitutional monarchy with a king wholly subordinate to Parliament, with a policy of religious tolerance. For three centuries after Cromwell’s death, his identity has been the subject of much debate. A huge number of critics accuse him of hypocrisy, pointing to the fact that however he professed his support for the supreme power of Parliament and protested against the despotic executive, he himself actually established a military dictatorship. True, it is clear to most that Cromwell’s devotion to democracy was sincere, although sometimes circumstances beyond his control forced him to use dictatorial power. It is noted that he was never two-faced, did not accept offers to take the throne or establish a permanent dictatorship. His reign was always characterized by moderation and tolerance.

How do we evaluate Cromwell’s influence on history? His main merit, of course, is that he was a brilliant military leader who defeated the royalist forces in the English Civil War. Since the parliamentary forces fared rather badly in the early stages of the war, before Cromwell came to the fore, it seems fair to assume that without him they would not have won the final victory. As a result of Cromwell’s military successes, democratic rule was established and strengthened in England. Don’t think it would have happened anyway. In the seventeenth century, most of Europe moved in the direction of strengthening royal absolutism, and the triumph of democracy in England turned the wheel of history. Later, the example of English democracy was an important factor in the French Enlightenment, in the French Revolution and in the final development of democratic government in Western Europe. It is also clear that the triumph of democratic forces in England played a vital role in establishing democracy in the United States and other former English colonies such as Canada and Australia. Although England itself occupies only a small part of the world, democracy has poured out of this country into areas that are by no means small.

Oliver Cromwell could be higher on our list if not for almost the same merit in the formation of democratic institutions in England and the United States of the philosopher John Locke. It is difficult to appreciate the relative importance of Cromwell, who was basically a man of action, and Locke, who was a man of ideas. However, given the intellectual atmosphere of Locke’s time, one might say that political ideas very similar to his would probably still have appeared very soon, even if Locke had not existed at all. On the other hand, had it not been for Cromwell, it is very possible that Parliamentary forces would not have won the English Civil War.

In the 16th century, Cromwell built a huge mansion in the center of London in a few years in power

The British historian Nick Holder, based on written sources, managed to find out what two mansions looked like, which belonged to one of the richest and most influential people in England in the 1530s – Thomas Cromwell. Starting with renting a townhouse, the politician managed to buy out and confiscate neighboring lands in a few years, building a mansion with 61 rooms and a dozen attic rooms for servants, as well as a large garden and accompanying buildings. Having occupied almost a hectare of land, the main ideologist of the English Reformation became the owner of one of the largest private houses in London. Article published at Journal of the British Archaeological Association .

One of the most influential statesmen of England in the 16th century was Thomas Cromwell, the first adviser to King Henry VIII, who became the main ideologist of the English Reformation and one of the founders of Anglicanism. Although Cromwell came from a simple family, he quickly rose through the ranks. In the early 1530s, he received a number of important government posts, including Chancellor of the English Exchequer and Secretary of State, and then Lord Chancellor. With the direct participation of Cromwell, the powerful second wife of Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, fell.

Thomas Cromwell turned out to be a controversial and multifaceted personality. Within a few years he became one of the richest men in England, probably third after Henry VIII and the Duke of Norfolk. In 1540, he was arrested on charges of treason and heresy (it is noteworthy that just two months before this event, he was granted the title of Earl of Essex). Despite the torture that lasted 1.5 months in the Tower, he never pleaded guilty. In July of the same year, he was executed on Tower Hill.

Historian Nick Holder of the English Heritage charity examined architectural plans, building estimates and other documentary evidence, and described two of Thomas Cromwell’s London houses. The earliest mention of Cromwell renting a property near the Austin Friars monastery dates back to November 1525.

The first politician’s house was built around 1510 by Prior Edmund Bellondom. The builders designed it to high standards: fireplaces in almost every room, a kitchen with a separate pantry for food storage, a basement, and a yard with a latrine and a woodshed. Apparently, the house was built of brick and wood frame. The main façade may have combined these two materials, while the back façade was made mostly of wood. The building was well lit thanks to large windows with stone or brick partitions.

The three-storey house consisted of 14 rooms, as well as several attic spaces. The building was divided into three wings: main, kitchen and hall. The living room on the ground floor was an imposing carpeted room with a long table. Cromwell, along with his family, probably paid £4 a year for this almost new townhouse. The inventories give an idea of ​​Cromwell’s religious and aesthetic tastes. The halls were decorated with religious images, scenes from the Battle of Pavia and the sack of Rome. The house contained numerous other religious attributes, including an altar.

In 1532 Cromwell began to expand his holdings, with the intention of building a new and larger house to match his rapidly growing status. He leased his house and a neighboring house, along with a garden and a warehouse, located on the monastery plot for a period of 99 years. Then he also expanded his holdings by purchasing neighboring plots, including from the Italian merchant Antony Vivaldi. A 16th-century historian recorded that Cromwell went beyond the legal means of expanding his holdings by confiscating a large area to the north of his property, which even had to move one log house. He became one of the largest property owners in London, owning a plot of 0.9hectares.

In July 1535 he began to build one of the most grandiose private houses in the city, for which he spent a total of more than 1,000 pounds sterling, which Holder considers this amount to be clearly underestimated and estimates it at least 1600. The mansion was three-story with bay windows, as well as several cellars for storing wine and beer. Most of the house was built of brick, and the roof was covered with tiles. It consisted of two blocks: on the first floor of the eastern block there was a kitchen and service rooms, and on the second floor there were living rooms and halls; the western block contained stables, an additional kitchen, a chapel, and family quarters. In total, the mansion had about 61 rooms, as well as a dozen attic rooms in which servants lived.
