Mission

Mission

We build confidence for life by providing high-quality early childhood education for families of all backgrounds and means. Serving children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age, we are committed to providing each of them with the very best start in life through a high-quality educational experience in a nurturing and engaging environment.  

We believe that investment in early childhood education and care produces long-term societal benefits including stronger, healthier communities and a more productive economy. In pursuit of our mission, we have purposefully built a scaled and differentiated platform enabling us to reach more families and children than any other private childcare provider. We play a significant role in helping to deliver the broader societal benefits achieved through high-quality early childhood education.  

Our Guiding Pillars

Because strong and vibrant communities depend on access to high-quality child care for all, we serve the full socio-economic spectrum of American families—from the public to the private sector and those of modest means. Our pillars guide the work we do in each of our centers and sites every day across the country. 

Educational Excellence 
We deliver high-quality programs through our proprietary curriculum and our commitment to accreditation—the third-party validation of the high standards in our classrooms. Independent studies prove KinderCare children are better prepared for school than their peers outside our programs. 

People & Engagement
Our industry-first talent selection tool helps us hire teachers and staff who will thrive. Our annual employee and family engagement surveys build culture, identify how to best serve children and families, and drive business performance. 

Health & Safety
Our rigorous safety standards are reinforced by ongoing training and measurement tools. We build healthy bodies and minds through nutritious meals and physical activity programs, and our dedicated resources support teacher and child mental health and emotional safety. 

Operations & Growth
Through operational excellence, we’re able to deliver the best quality care to children across the country. By building new centers and inviting existing providers to join the KinderCare family, we’re able to bring our high standards to more families and communities each season. We work with school administrators and public and private employers to expand access to our programs.
