Years in the making by our own education team, our proprietary Early Foundations® is an innovative curriculum that models a “whole-child” approach and is purposefully designed to meet children exactly where they are, whether they are six weeks or six years old.
Focusing on the six main domains of childhood development: Cognitive Development, Creative Expression, Executive Function, Language and Literacy, Physical Development and Wellness, and Social and Emotional Development, the curriculum is designed to nurture children academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. (Read more about these six domains on KinderCare.com)
At the Forefront of Educational Research, Assessment, and Accreditation
Research-based and outcome-driven, our organization is committed to continuously improving our proprietary curriculum by assessing and aligning with the most up-to-date science, current educational research, and important accreditation standards. (Case in point, during the curriculum development process, the education team tapped well-respected educational experts to review their research before writing the curriculum.)
We emphasize the development of Executive Function skills—the ability to focus, persevere, and be flexible. Why? Because current research shows these skills are important indicators of success later in life.
Opportunity for Children across the Nation
At KinderCare Education, we believe all children should have access to the highest quality early childhood education experience possible, regardless of background, financial circumstance, or ability. Today, we are proud to offer subsidized tuition to more low-income families than any other private early childhood education provider.
In support of all of our children and families, we embrace inclusive participation of all children in our programs to ensure each center can meet the unique needs of each child and their varying abilities, interests, and passions.
We also believe in doing what’s right for all children, not just the children who attend our centers. That means advocating to raise health, safety, and nutrition standards at the federal, state, and (sometimes) local level. Our government relations work has improved safe sleeping standards for infants in child care and championed the effort to provide healthful fruit options in our nation’s public schools.
