Framingham KinderCare provides an educational environment that encourages children aged 6 weeks to 5 years old to explore, create and grow.
- The infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
- Toddlers engage in fun activities while developing confidence to develop speaking skills and making friends.
- A holistic approach is taken for young preschoolers through a blend of music, art, movement, and early education fundamentals. As they develop greater confidence, children will work on literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts.
Families may also enroll their children in learning enrichment programs, including cooking, music, phonics, or STEM.
Meals and Snacks
Nutrition is an important part of the educational model. Kids set the table with their friends, serve themselves and practice saying “please” and “thank you”. Meals and snacks include versions of kid favorites made with healthier ingredients, like whole grains, proteins to keep bellies full, plenty of fruits and vegetables—and low-fat, hormone-free milk.
After School Program
Framingham KinderCare also offers an after-school program for school-age children. They can balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences, from homework help to physical activity.
