"What will my child learn at Las Colinas KinderCare?" This is a question we are often asked by parents of young children as they tour our center. Research has shown that young children learn best through active, hands-on experiences: In other words, children learn by doing. KinderCare Learning Centers provide a curriculum that allows teachers to organize and structure their environment to meet the needs of the individual children in their classroom. We provide activities that promote growth in each of the six developmental domains. Through open-ended activities, we foster creativity and risk-taking, and allow children the opportunity to test their ideas. Children develop at very different rates, but they all follow predictable patterns in stages and sequence of development. Development cannot be taught or hurried, but can be guided and encouraged--and that is what we strive to do in our programs. The most important thing we can give a child is a love for learning. So, at Las Colinas KinderCare, children are encouraged to become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic, and inquisitive learners. They are encouraged to think for themselves, make decisions, develop problem-solving skills, and communicate their ideas. The teachers all share the same passion and commitment to the education of young children. We provide a strong foundation for our children and prepare them in all areas of development in a loving, nurturing environment where they feel safe and secure.

Health & Safety
The staff at Las Colinas KinderCare take the health and safety of the children very seriously. We have a keypad entry system at the front door to monitor who is coming and going. Only parents are given the code and the management team is vigilant about checking to see who is coming in the front door at all times. We have a well-maintained, beautiful playground. It is fenced and the gates remain securely locked at all times. All staff members are trained in First Aid and CPR. The teachers who work with children under the age of two are required to have training in recognizing and preventing sudden infant death syndrome and shaken baby syndrome, and are trained to understand early childhood brain development. All of our staff are required to obtain 24 hours of training annually. Our center has an emergency preparedness plan and practices fire and emergency drills on a monthly basis and bad weather drills quarterly.
