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.
KinderCare Learning Center at Newark 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.
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.
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.Â 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 youâ€™re
at work, with safe transportation from our center to your childâ€™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 breakâ€”when schoolâ€™s out (but you still need to work), you
can count on KinderCare to provide a safe and supportive learning environment thatâ€™s focused
on fun. We welcome children ages 5â€“12 during school break times and make sure they have a
sensational, screen-free experience they wonâ€™t forget.
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!
The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics
concepts like geometry, numbers, currency, measurements, and probability. Whether
theyâ€™re couting currency or weighing their favorite toy, your child will explore math
fundamentals thatâ€™ll give them a confident start for elementary school.
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. )
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 first son started KinderCare Learning Center at Newark at 1.5 years old and graduated Kindergarten from there. He started reading at 2.5 years old. They have a great phonics, math and language program and its almost as if your child is getting 1 to 1 attention. I accredit most if not all of his success to KinderCare Newark. My son now is 11 years old doing 8th grade full time curriculum work. He’s supposed to be in 6th grade. He even attended summer camp this year and had a blast. Ms.Susan, Ms. Shana and her staff are very friendly and passionate about their job. The turn over is very low as evident that my second son who is now 18 months old has some of the same teachers my 11 year old had like Ms.Lateefa and others. Ms.Naomi is an excellent infant room teacher, Ms.Loretta in Infant C is super sweet and Ms.Erica, Ms. Linda, Ms.Kim, Ms.Kendra, Ms.Joy are wonderful as is all their staff. They truly love their jobs and love the children. They are very friendly and the curriculum they implement is outstanding. They have monthly themes, constant projects even in the infant room. They offer delicious food cooked right at the center. I have visited other centers and they smell or are overcrowded, they do not have a curriculum and the staff is sub-par. There is no other place I would trust or recommend.
Yaneth C. – KinderCare Parent
We have been part of the KinderCare family since 2006. We enrolled our first child when he was 18 months old. During his time at the center, my son was exposed to fun, learning experiences and to a caring staff that nurtured his individuality and love for learning. It was this experience that laid a strong foundation for a smooth transition to Kindergarten. When he began Kindergarten at a private school, his teacher commented on how far ahead he was ahead on his reading and math skills from other children in his class. This was in no small measure thanks to the work of the educators at KinderCare and to the curriculum they follow. When our second child came along, we had our doubts about putting him in daycare since he had been born premature and had several health challenges. In the end, we decided to enroll him and that was the best decision we could possibly have made. Under the leadership of Susan Casbar, the KinderCare staff welcomed our child with open arms and provided a level of care second only to what I could have provided myself. Starting with the Director and down the line of caregivers at the center, my child was surrounded by second mothers. Not only did the staff pay close attention to my son’s developmental and nutritional needs, but I often found myself overwhelmed by the love that surrounded my children. Both of my children love to learn and explore. I know that their passion for learning was fueled by the enthusiasm and commitment of Ms. Toney, Ms. Lateefah, Ms. Krystal, and the entire KinderCare staff. My children are now in first and fifth grades, but we often return to visit our KinderCare family for special events and summer camp, and the staff always makes us feel at home. The relationship we forged with KinderCare continues and will for many years to come.

90,000 New Jersey Startup Pitching Competition Gaining Popularity – Choose New Jersey, Inc.
For people who live on the “other” side of the Hudson River, there’s always a bit of “me against them” about everything that happens in the city compared to efforts in the garden state. Make no mistake, the startup scene in New Jersey is growing. Broad Angel Investor Tax Relief Announced New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy plus enhanced access to capital have an impact.
New Jersey investment on the rise
Indeed, the Garden State is getting greener. Golden Seeds recently announced their statewide expansion in partnership with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) and First Lady Tammy Murphy . Both the number of investors and the size of their respective funds are growing. Not to mention the growing number of presentation opportunities available, including the upcoming College Student Presentation Competition March 24, 2020 hosted by StartupTribes at the University of New Jersey.
Tech Council Ventures now has over $55 million, Deca Ventures has $8 million, and a new $25 million fund is in the works. In addition, there are so many other investment efforts from Newark Venture Partners in Jumpstart New Jersey, and Jane V. K. And iFund Women now have a special program dedicated to supporting women of color.
Judges & Mentors #JerseyStrong
Grit Daily caught up with Mario Casabona , Founder of TechLaunch, business accelerator and Casabona Ventures, an investment company, to take a look at some of the state’s promising startups. On February 12, 2020, TechLauch held its 16th 9th0021 th Bullpen Pitch Contest. The event was held at Casabona’s alma mater and began with an opening address Dr. Dale Caldwell , Executive Director of the Rothman Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Silberman College of Business at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU). The tireless efforts of by Esther Sourden , a long-time author as the “voice of technology in New Jersey” with her publication of The New Jersey Tech Weekly, received well-deserved recognition and applause.
Entrepreneurs are getting younger
Following the announcement of an upcoming high school pitching competition, Will Lutz Co-Director of NJIT Venture Link, introduced his mentee, Israel Hervias . Ervias is a student at NJIT and did an excellent job at his first presentation. After getting over some initial nervousness, Ervias, encouraged by a receptive audience, shared his decision to identify, screen, manage and pay independent workers offering political agitation and literature distribution services. The VisionRace, described by one viewer as an “Uber for campaigning,” is now ready for use by regional businesses and politicians after a two-year sprint.
Sam Bailer and Jared Neff co-founders of BoostPoint, an advertising solution designed for home service providers, shared their proposal. They developed an algorithm for hyperlocal targeting of potential buyers for advertising. With decades of experience in the home services and repair industry, they recognized the need to make 1-2-3 social media advertising simpler, more accessible than agency offerings, more targeted, and more guaranteed to provide advertisers with exclusive leads. Their presentation was good, but the audience was clearly not represented by in-home service providers, so the difficulties involved in creating and managing advertisements to secure service contracts were not fully appreciated.
Entrepreneurs are as diverse as their solutions
Nigel Gardner took a step into the Audio direction. Gardner and his experienced team of entrepreneurs have developed patented proprietary audio loop technology to help people with hearing impairments. Instead of collecting and amplifying sound the way hearing aids work, their solution delivers sound directly to your ear, effectively “whispering” into it. Innovative concepts, such as the welcome mat designed to be placed at the pharmacy’s prescription counter, can help facilitate face-to-face communication between pharmacist and patient.
As is often the case with almost every founder, personal connection and therefore passion are at the heart of the company. More than 50 million Americans have been found to have hearing loss (Gardner is one of them), but ADA compliance is estimated at <5%. 3.6 million hearing aids are sold each year: this is very important to Audio Directions as most (85%) of them contain the T-coil switch used by their solution. Their pitching win at TechLaunch Bullpen #16 earns them $15,000 in coaching and mentoring services, as well as an invitation to meet and speak at JumpStart NJ and TechCouncil Ventures.
The single woman was the crowd’s favorite
Lauren Sickler , the only woman in the cast, had an amazing ear. It has successfully used WOM (Word-of-Mom, also known as Word-of-Mouth) to develop its low-tech mobile child car seat laundry service. Equipped with a seat flipping tool and a rigorous washing process that complies with car seat regulations and uses organic materials (no bleach), colorful pink vans cruise the city to various day care centers, fitness centers and stores where you expect to find moms and babies .
BuckleVanna has already established several key partnerships that allow them to service multiple vehicles in the business parking lot. Unsurprisingly, her pitch was voted a crowd favorite given the collective groan at the thought of baby vomit, flakes, bacteria and other nasty things often found in car seats and child seats. Ugh! Not to mention the difficult task of reinstalling the seat after cleaning it.
Make no mistake, New Jersey has had an active and thriving tech scene for some time now. The only thing left is to watch it boom, now that the secret is finally out.

TREC Project in New Jersey, USA
Design and Architecture Online Magazine
April 25, 2017
|Designed by:||ikon.5 architects|
The city of Newark has long struggled to come back to life after losing its industrial base at 1950s, which led to a worsening economic situation, rising unemployment, deplorable housing conditions and, ultimately, caused the 1967 riots. Since that time, the city has made several attempts to renovate, but, unfortunately, unsuccessful. Today there is a preference for incremental rather than radical change, small, purposeful projects led by architects who can solve immediate problems.
One of these was a community center project in one of Newark’s poorest and most challenging neighborhoods by architects Ikon.5, an award-winning cultural and educational firm in the United States.
TREC is a training and education center opened in January 2017. By design, it is not similar to any project of this purpose. This was the main goal – the city needed something that “would dare to be different.” Through the uniqueness and “foreignness” of the building, the customers – the housing department – sought to convey to the residents the main thing – by introducing significant, qualitatively new changes in the urban space, they care about the residents and the future of the city.
Creating an “urban living room”
TREC is located in South Newark, Ward residential area, bordering Weequahic Park. The building with an area of 2229.67 sq. m includes computer laboratories, classrooms, kindergarten, fitness center, basketball court and public space.
The versatility allows the facility to stay active throughout the day and attract more visitors. Project Lead Designer and IKON Director, Joe Tattoni: “We viewed this project as the living room of the city. We intentionally designed it this way to reach more people.” The design of the building itself also works well for the focus of attention – transparency is aimed at openly demonstrating to the community everything that happens inside. The shape of the building consists of two slightly shifted wedges. The construction uses dissimilar materials expressing different functions. So, for example, entertainment events are held in the non-transparent part, and joint discussions, training, conferences, etc. are held in the transparent part.
The glass wall changes its appearance depending on the conditions and time of day, presenting both transparency and reflectivity.
