Tender Care Learning Centers’ programs are custom designed for infants to school-age children to gently encourage and inspire each child to reach his/her full potential by approaching each developmental stage with enthusiasm, persistence and joy!
Our curriculum is nationally recognized, and our Tender Care early education professionals have received more national teacher awards than any other company in the country. Moreover, our teachers receive annual, certified training above and beyond the requirements of most child care programs.
Our teachers understand how children grow, allowing them to anticipate developmental needs and create environments and activities that encourage emerging skills. At the same time, our approach is tender and full of care, allowing children to progress without frustration or fear of failure.

Tender Care Learning Centers capture the essence of the home setting for children. Our purpose is to provide children with the same type and quality of experiences that they have at home and to enhance those experiences by capitalizing on the child’s remarkable receptivity to new learning. In doing so, every child’s uniqueness is taken into consideration as they are tenderly cared for, cuddled and stimulated to grow and learn.
We know that no one has more information or knowledge about children than their parents. Therefore, parents are a critical part of the teaching team. We take great care in gathering data from parents about their children’s temperament, schedule and preferences. With this information, teachers plan each child’s day to ensure that individual needs are met and that each child’s interest is encouraged as they grow and learn at their own pace. Communication is a vital part of our relationship with parents.
Our program is designed to gently stimulate children to reach their full potential, to approach each developmental milestone with enthusiasm, persistence, and joy. Our goal is to make sure that each child has numerous successful experiences every day to foster a positive self-concept and to ensure a lifelong love of learning.
We believe our teacher need to know and understand how children grow and learn. When teachers know developmental growth patterns, they can anticipate developmental needs and create environments and activities that encourage emerging skills without frustration or fear of failure.
To accomplish these goals, we have established a people-oriented organization. We hire the best teachers we can find and train them thoroughly before they assume the full responsibility of teaching. Our philosophy is built on valuing each and every employee’s contribution. We continue to facilitate professional growth by offering ongoing training and constant feedback.
