"I have worked for Tender Care Learning Centers in Hampton for almost eight years. My time here has flown by watching the infants grow into preschoolers. I have watched them take their first step, comforted them when they were sad, and listened to their first words. I hope my babies know that I have loved them and hope that I have touched their hearts in some way, as they have most definitely touched mine!"

I have worked at Tender Care Wexford for over 11 years, and have enjoyed every minute of it! Every day is a new adventure, and I wouldn’t choose to take this journey with anyone other than the students, coworkers, and directors that I work with! When I’m having a good day, they make it even better, and when I’m having a rough day, they put a smile on my face. Tender Care Wexford is a place I WANT to be at, not that I HAVE to be at!

Working at Tender Care is such an adventure! I love how great the communication is between teachers and parents. The management is very flexible and accommodating. I really enjoy working for Tender Care.

Casey A.

Tender Care is such a fun place to work! As soon as I started I was able to take management training classes and they supported me in every step of my professional growth. I have learned so much from my directors who are always there to help. Watching the children grow from room to room is one of the best parts of the job. As the PreK teacher, I feel so proud of my students who come through my room and then move on the Kindergarten. I love watching them learn and grow!
