WILDLIGHT, FL – April 25, 2019 – Today, Raydient Places + Properties announced that KinderCare® Learning Centers is building a more than 10,000-sq. ft. early childhood education and care facility in Wildlight, the new town under development in Nassau County. The Yulee KinderCare center will serve more than 100 children between the ages six weeks to 12 years old when the center opens in late 2019.

“At KinderCare, everything we do is designed for learning,” said District Leader Nora Bergeon-Capps. “We believe that when a parent drops their child off at one of our centers, they’re ensuring that their child is in a safe, nurturing education program that will provide a strong foundation for learning. We believe every child deserves access to high-quality early childhood education and care, which is why we’re excited to join the new Wildlight community in Yulee.”

In 1969, the first KinderCare opened its doors in Alabama with a singular calling: to help hardworking families pursue their personal and professional dreams. Today, KinderCare is a nationwide community of passionate teachers and staff striving to make each child’s potential shine, imparting a lifelong love of learning and helping children build confidence for life. The Yulee KinderCare center will include nine total classrooms, a full-size gym and fully-equipped outdoor playground.

“We are excited to welcome KinderCare® Learning Centers to Wildlight as the community’s first child care provider,” said Chris Corr, President, Raydient Places + Properties. “The Yulee KinderCare center will provide the community’s growing number of families with high-quality learning and child care that directly aligns with our fundamental values and will.”
