We're Raising the Standard in Early Childhood Education
Nationally, only 10% of early childhood education centers are accredited—nearly 100% of ours are. Why are we so committed? Because it’s the right thing to do for children. Accreditation means that every one of our 1,343 accredited centers has met rigorous standards of excellence, education, and care.
The Result? KinderCare Kids Are Ready for School
Our accredited centers, world-class curriculum, and talented teachers give children the strongest start imaginable. Research shows that by the 7th month of Kindergarten, KinderCare kids test at first-grade levels in both math and reading. In March of 2016, our kindergarteners’ reading skills were three months ahead of national norms—and they were about five months ahead in math. Simply put, we prepare kids for school success in kindergarten and for years to come.
What Makes a Teacher Great? The Art and Science of Hiring Top Teachers
Teachers are the heart of our business—that's why we look for the most talented people to care for and educate the children in our classrooms. How do we find them? We learned from our very best teachers what makes them great—and now we hire for those qualities.
A truly great teacher has a natural talent: Do you have passion, patience, a love for children... and their families, too?
Become a teacher—and love what you do.
At KinderCare, we believe that talent is as important as experience: We're looking for warm, curious people who exude positivity and see the potential in others and in themselves. Interested in joining us? We’re building careers in early childhood education—find a team near you!

I have been working at KinderCare Education full-time (Less than a year)
The company is Amazing! There are so many different benefits to working for the organization. It feels like being a family. Everyone wants to help each other be successful. So many great people that work for the company that want to grow together as a leader.
The insurance benefits are great to add children but can be very pricey to add a spouse. Higher management looking into that.
Advice to Management
Do what you are doing because you make it a great environment for your employees.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KinderCare Education (New York, NY) in January 2018.
I was greeted warmly by the Assistant Director and waited about 5 minutes before the Center Director came out to meet me. I followed her into her office and we had some small talk and she asked a few questions, took me on a tour of the facility (all the teachers were very nice), we shook hands and she said i should hear from her soon. All in all it only took about 30 min.
