Transform Your Business.

Transform Your Business.

Partner with us for a smooth transition.  

If you own a daycare, child care center, or school, you most likely share our vision for a better world. We’re dedicated to supporting hardworking families and nurturing the next generation. With a 50-year history and a network of over 1,500 centers spanning 40 states, we proudly care for over 195,000 children and counting. When you join the KinderCare family, you become part of the nation's most accredited child care provider.   
Discover a partnership that goes beyond just selling your business. KinderCare specializes in acquiring diverse child care centers, ranging from small family-owned establishments to renowned portfolios like Crème de la Crème and franchises. What drives us is creating scenarios that benefit everyone involved, where your goals and aspirations align seamlessly with our shared vision. Let’s shape the future together. 


We’re focused on our shared success. 

We believe every child deserves access to high-quality education. That’s why, in our centers, we exceed states’ minimum licensing requirements for accreditation from agencies like NAEYC.  
With our extensive history in early childhood education, we have gained expertise in navigating acquisitions. And in alignment with our greater mission—building confidence for kids, families, and the future we share—we want to form mutually beneficial partnerships that celebrate your vision and inspire growth. 




Upholding your legacy is part of our job. 

Over the past five years, more than 230 child care centers have found a new home in the KinderCare family. We understand that every partnership is unique, which is why we approach each one with personal consideration, adjusting to meet the needs and goals of the businesses we add to our circle. Not only do we lay the groundwork for smooth transitions, but we also created the blueprint, setting the industry standard for successful transformations. We also have the resources needed to make the most of your life’s work, such as a dedicated recruiting team, proprietary curriculum and employee resource groups, a dedicated Inclusion Services team, career pathing and development, and so much more. 




Our teachers are the heart of our centers. 

We prioritize the well-being of our employees, and it shows. Our commitment to creating an exceptional workplace has earned us the prestige of the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award consecutively for the past seven years. This recognition is reserved for organizations that have demonstrated an outstanding ability to create an environment where employees thrive and contribute their best. 


Expect transparency every step of the way. 

We understand the value of transparency, especially when considering the sale of your business. You’ve invested your time, you’ve built a caring community, and you’ve helped create a better future for children. At KinderCare, we prioritize open communication and clarity throughout the entire process. We aim to build a strong partnership by keeping you informed and engaged, and providing a clear roadmap that outlines each stage and what to expect next. Trust us to guide you through this journey with confidence and integrity.
