They provide the toddlers with a world scaled to his/her level. Ample companionship of his/her age.

Each day, KinderCare provides a balanced approach to learning, giving parents the peace of mind that children will have fun as they develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. KinderCare gives your child the tools to become confident and self-aware. In a caring and stimulating atmosphere, passionate and engaging teachers give your child endless opportunities to grow, learn, and imagine -- whether building a spaceship to blast off to Mars or inviting a new friend to share a story during group time. While academics play a role in development, we believe there are many other opportunities for enhancing the whole child.
The anxieties a child may feel at drop-off time are completely normal -- and so are the parents'! It's encouraging for parents to know that there are many positive (and peaceful) ways to say goodbye at school that will help build a child's confidence.
