New Castle testimonials

"Our Tender Care has an amazing staff that enables so many parents to work with a peace of mind that their children are getting the utmost care and education possible. I am truly grateful for every person at the facility."
Lisa D.

"Our son started at Tender Care in the fall of 2016. As firsttime parents, we were hesitant to leave our first born under the care of others. However, the staff at Tender Care has consistently provided a level of care, compassion, and education that has put us at ease. We are greeted by name every morning and afternoon with smiles and kind words, the child care providers are warm and welcoming, and no matter how many questions we have, they are always there to help. We would recommend Tender Care to anyone seeking childcare."
Melisa P.

"Tender Care has been such a blessing to our family. We have met so many wonderful teachers and our daughter has made such great friends at a young age. We started our daughter in the Infant Class and she has now transitioned into the Toddler Class. When you walk into the school, everyone is so welcoming and kind. Looking around on a daily basis, learning really is going on at all times. It is so cool to see what my daughter is learning every day. We love that in the Infant and Toddler class sign language is being used and taught, which then helped us at home with our daughter’s needs. I would not take my daughter anywhere else but Tender Care!"
