KinderCare Offers Families Free Day of Child Care This Fall

September 4, 2023

As the busy back-to-school season begins, KinderCare provides working families the support they need 

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. — To support families as they ease into the busy back-to-school season,  KinderCare Learning Centers today announced that it is offering a free day of care as part of the company’s National Open House fall event. Families of children aged six weeks to sixth grade can take advantage of this offering from September 5 through October 6 in KinderCare centers nationwide.
“As the number of women returning to the workforce reaches an all-time high in the U.S., we know there’s a strong need for high-quality child care across the country,” said Michael Canavin, President, KinderCare Learning Centers. “Whether it’s full- or part-time-time care, we’re ready to help support working parents with programs that provide safe and well-rounded environments for children to foster a love of learning while building confidence for life. We’re excited to welcome in families for this sneak peek of our industry-leading programs.”
KinderCare takes pride in its curriculum, focusing on a whole-child approach to build confidence for life and instill a love of learning. In fact, national studies confirm that the longer that children are enrolled in KinderCare programs, the sooner they achieve key developmental milestones. 
Families with children between the ages of six weeks and 12 years old not currently enrolled in a KinderCare Learning Companies program may sign up for a free day at KinderCare centers across the country. Availability may vary depending on location and the children’s ages. To find a center near you and for more information, please visit
