Meet Tender Teddy

Hi Kids!

My name is Tender Teddy, and I am a big, huggable teddy bear who loves to visit my friends at Tender Care Learning Centers.

The kids I meet in our schools are always laughing, learning and having fun. They make art projects, sing songs, listen to stories, run and jump, and play with their friends. I am even learning sign language! I love joining in on the fun!

I have made many friends on my visits to Children’s Hospitals, community parades and even made big friends like me! 

My Tender Care friends and family always makes me feel tenderly cared for at our schools, and I know you will be too. I can’t wait to meet and play with you soon!

Sincerely with Bear Hugs,

Tender Teddy
