Portland, Ore. (January 14, 2019) – KinderCare Education has been chosen by The Department of Labor as their new onsite childcare center provider. The Child Development Center at the Department of Labor employs 35 teachers and staff and can provide care for nearly 150 children from Department of Labor and community families.
For 50 years, KinderCare has created safe, nurturing environments in centers across the country where kids can learn, grow and build confidence for life. KinderCare focuses on encouraging children’s natural curiosity to learn and providing high-quality early childhood education and care programs.
“KinderCare has a long history of helping employers in the greater DC metro area support their employees with onsite childcare,” said Center Director Elizabeth Litten. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to care for children whose parents work at the Department of Labor’s office as well as broader community families. Our teachers work hard every day to provide children with a safe and welcoming place to learn and grow. We can’t wait to welcome even more children to our center.”
KinderCare teachers approach learning with the goal of building on children’s natural sense of discovery, joy and wonder. By combining play and education, KinderCare helps young minds develop and children build confidence. KinderCare brings a research-based, proprietary curriculum that is specifically developed to align with state early learning standards and kindergarten expectations, so parents have confidence that their children have the skills necessary for kindergarten. National assessments show that children do better the longer they’re enrolled in KinderCare. They also reach developmental milestones earlier and are better prepared for first grade than their peers.
