Rivier University selects KinderCare Education to lease and operate early childhood center
KinderCare at Rivier University will provide childcare and education resources to the Greater Nashua community.
Rivier University has entered an agreement with KinderCare Education to lease and operate the early childhood center previously managed by the University. The program will be known as KinderCare at Rivier University and will care for and educate infants through pre-K children with operating hours that align to working families’ schedules. The center is prepared to enroll students upon receipt of their license by the State of New Hampshire.
“The University welcomes KinderCare Education,” says Sister Paula Marie Buley, IHM, Rivier’s President. “We appreciate the valuable resources KinderCare will provide to the Greater Nashua community and their strong support for early childhood education.”
Over the next several weeks, Rivier and KinderCare Education will make upgrades to the facility located in the Benoit Education Center. Upgrades will include enhancements to interior spaces, equipment, and outdoor recreational areas, as well as new signage.
Rivier University is a leader in educating teachers and school administrators throughout the region with degree programs from the bachelor’s to doctoral level, including an online Doctor of Education in Leadership and Learning designed to be completed in just three years. Rivier’s undergraduate Education majors will be welcomed as observers and employees at the KinderCare facility.
KinderCare Education is the nation’s largest private provider of early childhood education and care. With the health and safety of children and families in mind, KinderCare has enhanced protocols developed in partnership with the CDC and a panel of medical and pediatric experts. KinderCare also provides best-in-class curriculum to help children learn and grow. Results from the BRIGANCE® and TerraNova® national studies show that KinderCare children are better prepared for first grade. They also confirm that the longer that children are enrolled in KinderCare programs, the sooner they achieve key developmental milestones.
