Families can get a firsthand look at KinderCare’s high-quality early childhood care and learning programs
LAKE OSWEGO, Ore.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—While many families are trying to find a healthy work-life balance, there isn’t much spare time to explore child care options. Today KinderCare Learning Companies announced a national open house in KinderCare Learning Centers nationwide from July 24-28 to help families as they begin that search.
A 2023 U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse survey showed that 4.9 million people missed work because they were caring for children not in daycare. The national open house gives families the ability to conveniently visit their local KinderCare center and experience some of the high-quality programs that KinderCare centers nationwide provide to children as early as six weeks of age.
“Whether it’s part- or full-time care, we want families to feel confident that their children are in a place that’s more than just a daycare,” said Michael Canavin, president, KinderCare Learning Centers and Crème de la Crème. “We take pride in our research-based curriculum, which not only sets kids up for success when entering kindergarten but for life. We know how time consuming the child care search can be, and working parents need help, so we’re hosting a national open house now to give families an opportunity to visit our centers and witness the fun, and the learning, firsthand.”
According to third-party data, the longer children are enrolled in KinderCare programs, the stronger their developmental outcomes. Children with a year or more tenure performed significantly better than children with less than a year tenure, scoring an average of two to three months ahead of their actual age.
With more than 1,400 centers nationwide, KinderCare’s national open house hours will vary by location. Families can arrange a tour by calling a center in their area or visiting KinderCare.com to learn more.
