We believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child's growth with their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Here at KinderCare we believe it takes a village to raise a child and our parents consider us to be an extension of their family. Your child will have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment.
Teachers & Staff
The staff at the KinderCare on 82nd Street is exceptional and truly has a passion for learning. The majority of the staff at the center either hold a Child Development Associate's Credential (CDA), Associate's Degree or Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. We have continual trainings conducted throughout the year as well as bi-annual professional development day for the staff members. The staff is committed to providing an exceptional, quality learning environment for the children in their care. At the end of the day the true measure of our teachers' success is their passion for the children, and their love of learning.

At our KinderCare, your child's health and safety is one of our top priorities. Not only are all of the exterior doors locked to ensure safety, our playground areas are secured with fencing. Our secured front entrance has a key code entry for authorized family members to enter and a doorbell available for all visitors who will be greeted by center staff. We have a Health and Safety Coordinator on staff who is responsible for preforming daily safety checks, as well as conducting monthly fire and disaster drills. All staff members are CPR and First Aid Certified annually. The Infant teachers have also gone through training on Safe Sleep Standards as well as SIDS training.
