Avon Location Testimonial

"We chose Tender Care because of its home-like feel and proximity to our home in Avon. When we drop off our son, we love the cozy environment. It is not a large center, and when we see the staff interact with our son, we can tell they treat him as if he were one of their own children. The staff is in constant communication with us and the center is well-organized. Since we are not able to be at home with him during the workday, we truly feel that Tender care is the next best thing."

Avon Location Testimonial

"Since joining Tender Care, Adrianna has excelled in all areas of development. Her motor skills and language are well above her age appropriate milestones. I attribute this to her teachers who make learning fun. Adrianna is truly excited to come to 'school' every day. She looks forward to seeing her friends, spending time with her teacher and, of course, playing outside. The staff at Tender Care take the time to get to know your child personally, they are truly dedicated to ensuring every child's experience is a positive one. I am informed daily of all her activities; the communication is exceptional from the teachers to the directors. Tender Care is like family to us."

Whitehall Teacher Testimonial

I have worked at Tender Care for 12 years, my whole adult life, and I would not change this opportunity for anything. I have enjoyed working in all of the classrooms, as I was a three year old teacher before I had my own daughter, and have worked in prek and school age since. I love working with the older children and watching then grow and develop and prepare for school. I love when my students outgrow the program and come back to visit, it shows that I have impacted them in some way. I enjoy the staff that I work with, I look at them as family and friends rather than coworkers. I am grateful that we are offered many benefits at this job and that it is affordable. I used to say that this job was just temporary until I had my own children but now my daughter is 7, and Tender Care is home to me.


Over my five years at Tender Care I have been able to watch those who started as infants grow to graduate from our PreK program. It always astounds me to think about how much these children have grown over their years here. A large part of that growth is due to a wonderful staff who help and support each other as much as possible. Everyone really tries to be flexible and work together to make each day better than the previous one. The warm, fun, and energetic atmosphere helps each day be exciting, different, and unique. We are always so proud of how much each child learns in our care, but in reality we learn just as much from them and each other.


I learned about Tender Care when I was in college, and needed to complete observation and practicum hours. The management and staff always made me feel welcome and were very flexible with me. Shortly after graduation, I applied with Tender Care and accepted a position as a prek teacher. The Whitehall school has made me feel like family. Management is very understanding, kind and always go above and beyond to fit my schedule. The staff is very friendly, caring and they all bring a positive attitude to the work environment. I have enjoyed my career here at Tender Care, and I highly recommended this company to early educators!


After observing in a daycare during college and working at two different centers, I can say that Tender Care is my favorite. The management treats you like family and creates a caring environment, which you typically don’t get in a work setting. They are flexible and understanding when different things come up in life and are always willing to work around schedules. The center itself is very clean and organized with children’s work displayed on the walls. All the staff members are welcoming and are friends outside of work. Tender Care is a positive environment to work in and I would recommend to all :)


I have been employed with Tender Care Learning Center for over 6 years and my time at work is always enjoyable. The staff is friendly to the children and each other. If I ever had a conflict with scheduling, the other staff would always be willing to help. We’ve creating such a close family at work that we became friends outside the classroom, too. The directors treat both the staff and parents with respect. They provide a caring and pleasant work environment. The center is always colorful and clean. The teachers do a great job at updating and changing the children’s artwork in each classroom. I think Tender Care is an amazing place to work. I have, and will, continue to recommend the center for parents and future teachers!

Wexford Teacher Testimonial

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!

Kelly S.

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!

Shadyside Teacher Testimonial

I've been working at Shadyside for almost a year. It is the kind of environment where you can develop and make a difference. Through countless opportunities for continuing education, I have been able to learn and grow more in my journey as an educator. Our director and assistant director are genuine, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable, and that energy is felt throughout the school. We are a diverse group of teachers who are dedicated and passionate about the care that we provide. We love what we do, and it is evident in the strong relationships we build with the families that walk through our doors.

Rebecca Nugent

My three years here at Tender Care Learning Center have been the best three years, I could have ever asked for right after graduating with my degree. It has been so rewarding and exciting to work with such a wonderful group of woman. Each and every day, I head to not just a job but my second home. These ladies strive each and every day to provide love, care, but most importantly knowledge into each child in their care. The families that we serve become extended family to each of us. I have gained a plethora of skills, knowledge, but I have gained a family. My coworkers, director, and assistant director inspire me to be the best early educator and advocate for young children because they are the epitome of excellence for Early Educators.

I joined this company about a month ago and I absolutely love it! I have worked at other early childhood schools and this one is by far the bestclean, organized, pleasant work environment, friendly staff...TCLC has it all! I enjoy going to work every day and find the staff and management team to be very supportive.

I love working at Tender Care Learning Center in Middletown. From the moment I sat down for my interview to my first day in the classroom I felt welcomed and everyone was friendly. It’s a nice environment to work in, my coworkers are like family and that makes coming to work enjoyable. I always feel appreciated and I like being able to be creative in my classroom. I love that I am challenged in different ways and have support when I need it. It’s a great place to work!
