When your mission is to give children the very best start in life, it’s easy to get up in the morning.

Welcome to KinderCare Education. Every day, our 33,000 employees rise so hardworking families across America can shine. You may know us as the largest provider of early childhood education in the country—but we’re also the leader. Nearly 100 percent of our 1,300 centers are accredited (think of it as a mark of excellence, the best of the best). We partner with Gallup to hire the best teachers (and leaders) in early childhood education, and we’re committed to providing families and children the best experiences—just visit one of our centers to feel the difference. We’re proud of that.

Are you capable and confident, with a big heart and a passion for children? Wonderful! Us, too. We’d love for you to join us.


Educational excellence isn’t just an aspiration for us: It is the experience we provide to children and families in every classroom every single day.
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. 


We believe in giving back to programs that benefit children of all ages in the communities where we work and live. We support organizations committed to early childhood literacy, such as Read BIG, Schoolhouse Supplies, Start Making a Reader Today (SMART), and The Children’s Book Bank, which has enabled us to get books into the hands of thousands of children who need them most.
