Cranberry KinderCare

Cranberry KinderCare Photo #1 - Outdoor play occurs for all age groups daily, weather permitting. Our outdoor spaces and equipment are designed for active play and exploration.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #2 - Every day at our early learning center , a story is waiting to be told. Here, your son or daughter will find a rich, nurturing environment where learning is fun, the curriculum grows as skills increase, and passionate teachers turn every learning moment into a positive experience.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #3 - Infants need a safe, secure, "home away from home" where they can learn, play, and grow. Our younger infant room is designed as a smaller space to allow our younger and non-mobile infants to have that close and nurturing environment. Our teachers talk, sing, and read to our youngest infants to ensure the best start in educational life.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #4 - Our older infant classroom is for our mobile infants. This larger, least restrictive room allows our older infants the freedom to move every part of their body, whenever he/she desires, as he works towards all those critical milestones. Our teachers work with the older infants on crawling, standing, walking, etc. They sing, read, and constantly talk to their babies.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #5 - Our Early Foundations Preschool curriculum intentionally teaches letter identification, sounds, writing, math and science skills in a logical and developmentally approrpiate manner. Our classroom is set-up in learning centers where children are encouraged to explore and challenged to learn.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #6 - Our center has a private kindergarten classroom that is licensed by the PA Department of Education. Children experience the SmartBoard as they work through the K12 Interactive Curriculum in a small, full-day kindergarten program. Your child will leave our program, ready for first grade in the public school districts.
KinderCare Cranberry prides ourselves on employing the best staff to give your child the high quality care and education they deserve.
Our teachers all have degrees, are CPR and First Aid certified, and must complete 24 hours of continuing education each year.

School Notes

  • Welcome to our center located in Cranberry Township. Our education 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, blocks, art, writing, library, and math/science in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich learning, social play, and child-initiated discovery.
    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 developing early literacy and writing skills.
    Our education department has consulted with leading early childhood experts to insure that our curricula are developmentally appropriate and meet all the learning domains. Our newly refreshed curricula align with the Common Core and are crosswalked with the PA Early Learning Standards.
    Recent research conducted in MD and FL has shown that children who attended KinderCare were better prepared and more successful in kindergarten than their peers that did not attend a KinderCare. Similar research is currently being conducted in partnership with the PA Department of Education and we look forward to those results.
    We are very proud to let you know that we're nationally accredited by NAEYC as a high-quality early learning center and are a Keystone STAR 3 center - the highest quality rating in our state!
    Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we're excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning, growth, and development!
