The teachers and staff at KinderCare on Cherry Lane are passionate about educating and nurturing children.
California requires teachers to have a minimum of 12 Early Childhood Education units completed before they can work in a classroom.
Every member of our staff has exceeded this expectation and the educational levels throughout the center.
Many of our teachers have completed Associate’s Degrees, Bachelor’s Degrees and even a Master’s Degree.
The Cherry Lane team strives for excellence through continuing education from our company’s professional development trainings held twice a year to seeking additional college courses or seminars in the education field.
This also includes several on-site trainings from various child-related agencies from within our community.
However, at the end of the day, the true key to our teachers' success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.

School Notes:

  • Welcome to KinderCare on Cherry Lane. We are very excited to meet with you and your family. We would love for you to visit and see our unique center. Our center is one of only two small KinderCare’s in the area. Having a smaller center offers a home like feel while still enriching your child's learning experience with the world class Kindercare curriculum. We have small classrooms that enable your child to develop a strong relationship with his/her teacher and classmates. We believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child's growth with their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Your child will not only have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support from a team of child development experts who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children. Here at KinderCare on Cherry Lane, we also have a huge emphasis on bringing our families together and strengthening our relationships with one another. Relationships are critical to us. Our children know every teacher in the building and all of our teachers know all of our families. Our promise is that we will be committed to you and are proud to be a part of children’s early childhood education experience. Please stop in for a visit to experience the difference of KinderCare on Cherry Lane.
  • The health and safety of your children is priority to everyone on our team. We have an on-site health and safety coordinator who works diligently to make sure all policies and procedures are followed properly to allow us to maintain superior standards and keep our children happy and healthy. Emergency disaster drills like Earthquake and Fire drills are completed monthly and each classroom keeps a daily/weekly/monthly cleaning checklist to document our sanitation efforts. Our building is secured with a coded key pad on the front door and only enrolled families and authorized guardians who pick up at the center have the code. Codes are changed every six months to ensure the safety of our children. All of our interior doors are equipped with child-proof handles and door chimes so that we are alerted anytime a door is opened. And finally, all gates on the exterior of the building have loud sounding alarms to notify us of any openings.
