Thank you for choosing TenderCare Child Care Center for your child care needs. Our staff provides a warm and caring environment in which children experience security and develop trust as they master new skills at their individual rates of progress. As a program, we are concerned with the total development of children — physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. The program is non-sectarian and children from all religious backgrounds are welcome.
Our philosophy and goals are to keep children safe and healthy in an attractive and stimulating environment while providing a program that is individualized to meet each child’s developmental level. Staff recognizes the importance of the self-image of the child as being fundamental to his/her growth as an individual. Academic goals are achieved only when emotional gains have been made; therefore, each child is viewed with dignity and respect. The importance of play cannot be overemphasized since a child learns actively through play.
Parent involvement is an important part of our program. All parents are encouraged to actively participate in the Center’s special events and classroom activities. If at any time you have a question or concern about your child, please know that you are always welcome to speak with any of our staff members. The Staff and I look forward to being partners with you in the care and education of your child.
Wendy Bahr, Director/Administrator
