While my babies are still pretty little, I'm always on high-alert for childcare possibilities for them. I work part-time and I don't have family very close by to help me out when their care schedules conflict with my work arrangement. I love to take time off and spend it with the kids, but it just doesn't always happen!
There are a few KinderCare child care centers in my area and I've always had them in the back of my mind for a possible daycare just in case my curent provider falls through. Their convenient, structured and fairly priced for what they provide.
I was really surprised to learn that KinderCare also offers a Summer Camp program! I attended summer camp for several years when I was growing up, and I always truly enjoyed the “day camp” experience. It was so nice to do activities during the day, but sleep in my own bed at night!
I think the neatest thing about KinderCare's camp is that KinderCare actually surveyed kids then partnered with teachers to come up with the programs within their Summer Camps. They developed 12 unique week-long day camps with themes including Wild, Wild West, Wilderness 101, Dig Ancient Egypt, You've Got Talent!, Puppeteer Road Show, Gross & Gooey Science, Spectacular Sports, Animal Antics, Science Adventures, Art Expo, Kids' Kitchen, Splish Splash, Surfs Up!, and Everyday Heroes. Whether you have an avid athlete, a budding scientist, or both, they can find something cool within KinderCare's Summer Camps to engage their time. The weeklong timing of the camps also gives parents the flexibility to sign their kids up for as few or many sessions as they'd like.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of KinderCare and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
