Meet Tender Teddy

Hi Kids,

My name is Tender Teddy, and I am a big, huggable teddy bear who loves to visit my friends at Tender Care Learning Centers.

The kids I meet are always laughing, learning and having fun. They make art projects, sing songs, listen to stories, run and jump, and play with their friends. Sometimes I get to join in, too!

My favorite thing about preschool is the teachers at Tender Care. They know just how to make me feel special, and they know all the things kids like to do. They help me understand the world, make friends, and grow up healthy, safe, happy and smart. At the end of every day, I’m happy to see big smiles on the faces of my little friends as they tell their moms and dads about their days.

Most of all, I like Tender Care because I always feel tenderly cared for at school, and I know you will, too. I can’t wait to meet and play with you soon!

Sincerely with Bear Hugs,

Tender Teddy
