School Notes

  • Welcome to East Riverside KinderCare located between Rockford and Loves Park. Our center is nationally accredited by the National Association of the Education of Young Children and has earned the Gold Circle of Quality for the ExceleRate program in Illinois. We are proud to be one of the two centers in the Rockford area that have accomplished this achievement.
    Each day as children arrive at school they are excited to know that they will be engaging in new learning experiences and will have opportunities to explore and discover new things with their friends. As parents leave for their day, they are confident we will provide the highest quality of care in a safe and nurturing environment each and every day for their child. We invite you to visit and experience all of the great things that make us proud to be a leader in early childhood education.
  • The health and safety of the children in our care is our highest priority. Our keypad entry, fenced playground, parent id check/ sign in system, and on site health and safety coordinator are just few of the ways we support our children's safety. The center is cleaned and sanitized daily to help stop the spread of illness . Every teacher is trained on SIDS prevention and have CPR/First Aid certifications to ensure the ongoing health and safety of the children in our care.
