Extend Your Elementary Exploration with our Kids Care Kinder Program!

Transitioning into elementary school is a big step! Even if your Kindergartener has older siblings leading the way, the first year in a big-kid school means a lot of changes. Kids Care is here to help!

“On a daily basis, my daughter tells me she loves Kids’ Care more than Kindergarten! There have been countless times when I have picked her up, and she says, ‘I want to stay a little longer!'”

– Parent, Aviara Oaks Elementary

“The teachers are amazing, which is the most important. They keep the kids entertained, and the curriculum mirrors that of the classroom. It is a wonderful combo of fun and learning.”

– Parent. Hope Elementary

The older children are great at helping my kindergartner with computers and games and are very inclusive. The staff are very caring as well and very patient with very busy little kids!

– Parent, Magnolia Elementary
