Hockessin KinderCare

  • Caring and Passionate: Our teachers are passionate about your child's happiness and growth and provide a safe, nurturing environment that cultivates self-esteem.
  • This is more than a job for our teachers. It's an opportunity for them to share their passion for life while they inspire, engage and awaken the wonder inside each and every child.
  • Highly Trained Teachers: KinderCare devotes more time and resources to teacher training than any other childcare provider.
  • Twice a year we host the largest early childhood teacher training program in the country.
  • Our teachers are dedicated to developing your child's potential and are sensitive to your child's individual needs.
  • Additionally, all staff are CPR/First Aid trained and a significant number of staff are authorized to give medications, such as nebulizers or other prescription treatments.
  • Small Class Size: Our low teacher-to-student ratios allow teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of each child in our center.
