The secret of great early education? Great educators.  That's why we partnered with the Gallup organization to create a hiring tool that helps up identify top talent. We look for teachers who are confident, passionate about children, and of course, have big hearts! Our kids and families feel the difference.

What We Believe 

Our 33,000 teachers and staff are the true heart of KinderCare. When a child feels excited about learning, when a classroom of children feels loved and respected, when a family has a strong and trusting bond with a teacher—these are the truest markers of our success.

At KinderCare Learning Companies, we believe that early childhood education is one of the greatest careers a person could pursue. We also believe that early childhood educators deserve the highest accolades for the passion, talent, and dedication they bring to the classroom every day.
