  • Welcome to the NAEYC accredited KinderCare on St. Mark's Drive in Waldorf, Maryland. We are very excited to meet with you and your family. Here at St. Charles KinderCare, we believe it takes a village to raise a child, and our parents consider us to be an extension of their families. In providing quality child care services, your child will not only have a safe, secure and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support from a team of early childhood development experts who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children.

    Our experts designed our classrooms  and every activity and lesson  to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers, such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child-initiated discovery. 

    Proven by our research-based curriculum, we believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child’s growth with their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels, and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills, built on the Core Curriculum foundation that Maryland schools emphasize for educational success.

    Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our learning center is designed for learning. Please call to schedule a tour and witness all of the wonderful things happening at St. Charles KinderCare!
