  • The safety and security is a top priority for the children in our center. Not only are all of our outside perimeter doors locked to ensure safety, but all of our playgrounds are fenced with locking gates as well.

Otherwise a doorbell is available to visitors who will be greeted by a KinderCare staff member.
