A lifelong love of learning starts here.


Welcome to Tender Care!

When your child is happy, engaged and learning, you can see it, hear it and feel it. Bright smiles. Excited giggles. Big imaginations. Warm hugs. Crawling, walking, running, jumping.

Singing, clapping, playing, laughing. That’s the Tender Care child experience, and it extends to our families and teachers as well.

"Dear Tender Care Teachers,

Words cannot express how truly grateful I am for all that you have done for my son over the past five years. I, like most parents, was apprehensive about dropping my 4-month-old boy off with strangers, but it didn't take long for me to realize that all of you would become a part of our family. I remember being so sad that my son wouldn't be going to 'school' over the summer when he was still a baby because he wouldn't be able to play with all of his new friends. I knew then that I picked the right child care center.

Because of each of you, my son has flourished academically, emotionally, and socially. You have taught him more than I ever could have imagined. He knows his colors, shapes, numbers, and letters, but more importantly, he knows how to be a good friend. YOU have modeled kindness, respect, and forgiveness. YOU have instilled confidence in him and allowed him to be himself. These are lessons that he will take with him for the rest of his life.

Tender Care is truly second to none. I have told friends looking for child care to not even look anywhere else. My son has thrived here. I am sad that today is the last day that I will pick him up here, the last time I will see his smiling face run across the playground to greet me and then give his friends the biggest group hug that you ever saw. My heart is full of gratitude for all of you for giving my son the BEST early childhood experience possible. He is prepared for the next chapter because of the integral role you have played in his life over the past five years. Thank you for EVERYTHING!
