Our 27,000 teachers are the true heart of KinderCare Education. When a child feels excited about learning, when a classroom of children feel loved and respected, when a family has a strong and trusting bond with a teacher—these are the truest markers of our success.
At KinderCare Education, we believe that early childhood education is one of the greatest careers a person could pursue. We also believe that early childhood educators deserve the highest accolades for the passion, talent, and dedication they bring to the classroom every day.
Professional Development Days
We give our teachers the opportunity to grow their talents and careers as professional educators. KinderCare® Learning Centers close two days a year—once in the fall and once in the spring—to provide additional training to our teachers. We take these days to focus in-depth on topics such as our Early Foundations® curriculum, inclusion services, and classroom management.
KinderCare Education Legacy Awards
Launched in 2008, the KinderCare Education Legacy Awards recognize exceptional teachers on a regional and national level. Recipients are chosen yearly from more than 30,000 early childhood educators within the KinderCare Education family of brands. These teachers receive company-wide recognition and are celebrated within their communities. Regional winners also receive a cash prize of $5,000 while national winners receive $10,000. KinderCare Education is the only early childhood education company to offer an award of such significance.
