Lower Burrell testimonials

Tender Care is every child’s home away from home. I went to Tender Care as a child and was fortunate enough to be able to send my son as well. Every time he leaves school he can’t wait to tell me about his day. The teachers aren’t only teachers, they become family. My son couldn’t be happier.
A Lower Burrell Parent

"My children have been attending Tender Care Learning Centers’ since my oldest was 7 weeks old. The teachers are very knowledgeable and supportive of my children’s growth and development. My children 5 and 2 are always excited to go to school to see their favorite teachers and friends. I can’t imagine sending them anywhere else!"
Amanda F.

"Both of my Children have attended Tender Care Learning Centers’ since they were babies. The teachers have done an awesome job teaching and nurturing them! They have been given a strong foundation of learning and have formed such strong friendships that I believe will last a lifetime."

“My 30monthold son has told 4 people in this world “I Love You.” One is his regular classroom teacher Ms. Jodi.”

“When I think of Tender Care, I think of family. For over ten years my Tender Care friends were with me, providing love, guidance, and support to both of my children. From smiling to laughing, from cooing to talking, from crawling to walking, Tender Care was there. From singing ABCs to reading, from reciting 123’s to counting, through potty training and learning to share, Tender Care was there. Each day was a journey of learning, and I’ll be forever grateful for the foundation that it built for my children. My boys would not be who they are without Tender Care, and although we said goodbye when my youngest son entered Kindergarten, true friendships remain. Thank you for being a part of our lives!”
