Our Programs

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 trainings 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.

Each of our locations offer a variety of options to help meet your scheduling needs, and our gradual enrollment program allows you and your child to transition comfortably into our school.
