School Notes

  •      Welcome to the Thornton KinderCare!

    Our school has been serving families in and outside of the Thornton area for over 16 years, and we are thrilled to continue providing high quality child care for many years to come.  Our school is NAEYC accredited.

    We focus on children ages 6 weeks to 12 years, and provide a private Interactive Kindergarten program, in addition to transporting children ages 6 to 12 to and from local elementary schools.  Within our Infant, Toddler, Discovery Preschool, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten programs, our children progress through our Early Foundations Curriculum filled with various themes, activities, and opportunities to begin those all important academic skills.  Beyond the academics, we believe in developing the whole child - physically, emotionally, and socially.  Please call today to schedule a visit 303-451-5210!
