Welcome to Shawnee KinderCare in Shawnee, Kansas! Thank you for visiting our web page to learn more about us. My teaching staff and I are excited you're considering us as a potential school for your children. We would love the opportunity to talk with you about our school and the programs and services we can offer your family.

Teachers & Staff
At Shawnee KinderCare, we believe education is important for the children we serve and the education level of the teaching staff reflects that belief. A majority of our staff have continued their education beyond high school, including five with a bachelor's degree or higher. With tuition assistance from KinderCare Education, some teachers have begun their college career while others are working on their master’s degrees. By making educational experiences memorable and modeling our passion for learning, we strive to instill that same love of learning in the children we teach.
Health & Safety
At Shawnee KinderCare, children's safety is of utmost importance to us. We believe children should be free to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment. From the moment you approach our door to the end of the day, we work to ensure the safety of your children while in our care. Our exterior security features include secure entry, which requires the use of a key pad code. Our play area is fenced in, with a separate fenced area for younger children. Our entry features covered, lighted parking directly in front of the entrance. All staff members hold certification in CPR, First Aid, Signs and Symptoms of Childhood Illness, Safe Sleep, and Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention, and are subject to state and federal background checks prior to start of employment. The center undergoes yearly licensing and compliance visits from local fire department officials and KDHE.
