KinderCare Offers Summertime National Open House and Free Day Offer

June 18, 2024

While more than half of families say it’s becoming hard to secure high-quality child care, KinderCare is offering a free personal look at its programs

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., June 18, 2024 — Ahead of the back-to-school season, KinderCare Learning Centers is helping families prepare with a national open house event and an offer of a free day of care this summer.
According to KinderCare’s Parent Confidence Index, a family study conducted by The Harris Poll, more than half (60%) of parents believe it’s becoming increasingly hard to secure high-quality child care in their community. Survey results also show that nearly half of parents say securing child care feels “impossible” right now.
“We understand that child care is one of the hardest choices to make as a parent. It’s not about finding any program, but the right fit for your child and your family,” said Michael Canavin, president of KinderCare Learning Centers and Crème de la Crème Schools. “That’s why we’re offering an easy and free way for children and families to get a personal experience at KinderCare and help plan ahead for their care needs this fall.”
KinderCare has more than 1,500 early learning centers nationwide, offering part- and full-time care options to children as young as six weeks. With a research-backed curriculum that takes a whole-child approach to learning, KinderCare takes pride in providing enrichments and activities that grow children’s academic, physical and social-emotional development for kindergarten readiness.
The national open house will take place July 15-19, 2024. Hours will vary by location. Families can visit to locate a center nearby, schedule a tour online, or learn more.
KinderCare’s free day program will run from June 17 to July 26, 2024. Families with children between the ages of six weeks and 6th grade, not currently enrolled in a KinderCare Learning Companies program may sign up for a free day at KinderCare centers nationwide. Availability may vary depending on location and participation. To find a center near you and for more information, please visit our website.
