Cranberry testimonials

My 2 ½ year old daughter has developed tremendously during her first year at TCLC. We are very proud of how much she has learned in such a short time and love that the school challenges her at the appropriate level for her age and abilities. Our daughter has also made great strides in both her social skills and emotional regulation. We have been really impressed with how the teachers and other staff have worked with us as a team to drive improvement in these areas of concern for us. The teachers truly love the children and work really hard to help each child develop to their fullest potential while keeping the environment safe and fun. I have, and will continue to, highly recommend TCLC to anyone looking for a great day care and learning environment for their children.


I am always impressed when my children demonstrate a new concept to meone that I know they learned in school.

My kids love going to school, they are very attached to their teachers and friends. We hear about their day all the way home and again at dinner! I couldn't ask for a better group of people to take care of our boys!


"Amy is the second child we have left in your care, and there’s a very simple explanation for that. His name is Andy and he’s 6 years old. He is by far the most amazing little boy we know (yes, we’re biased), and while we would like to take all of the credit for that, we can’t because his family at Tender Care had a big hand in helping raise him. Without exception, each of his teachers truly loved and cared for him. They guided, comforted and snuggled him when we couldn’t be there to do it. With your help, we have watched this little person thrive at everything he does. We feel truly blessed to have found Tender Care. And so when Amy was born there was no question as to where she would go for daycare. We could have sent her to the daycare that Andy attends for after school care, but we haven’t known those people for 6 years. We didn’t watch as they helped raise Andy from a chubby little baby to a little boy who is on the go nonstop. I can say with complete sincerity that you all have become our second family, and there is no one else that I would trust to love Amy the way that you do. So thank you all for doing what you do and for being the teachers and people that you are. We love and appreciate every single one of you."

"The moment my husband and I walked into Tender Care Learning Center in Cranberry, I knew this was the right place for my son. The environment was very inviting and everyone was so welcoming. An added bonus is that it was along our commute routes with easy access to the turnpike and I79. I think Tender Care stands out as a child care provider. My son looks forward to coming to school each day. I know when I drop him off every morning; he will be well taken care of. I also like the fact that it’s an educational center. The children don’t play all day…they are actually learning! There are also extra activities in the evenings or during the day that our family looks forward to attending and my son enjoys participating in them. There is great parentteacher communicationhis teachers always let me know how his day was. This learning center is an exceptional place to send your child. We have been more than happy with our experience with Tender Care."
