At Tender Care Learning Centers, our school-age children enjoy a safe, fun and educational environment after the school day ends. Knowing that children enjoy interacting and feeling a sense of independence, our afterschool teachers lead a program that creates an organized club-like atmosphere.

Kids are given the freedom to choose from planned activities each day that can include:

  • Arts and crafts
  • Music
  • Culture
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Cooking
  • Homework help

After school, our children are also encouraged to relax a bit, have a snack and talk with friends. Parents are always welcome! Tender Care encourages families to participate in our family field trips, share their cultural heritage or participate in our evening programs. Please be aware that not all of our Tender Care Learning Center locations have a school-age program.
