Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Tender Years, Inc. Child Development Centers, we believe that children learn from experiences with people of all ages, races, religious beliefs, and physical ability. We challenge children with opportunities for creative thinking and self-directed activities. Our curriculum encompasses each child's physical, social, emotional, and creative development as well as their cognitive development.

Children are stronger and happier if their growth and development takes place with a balance of structure and developmentally appropriate choices. At Tender Years, teacher interaction, well defined boundaries, clearly understandable routines, and the process of interacting with materials and people result in learning.

Ultimately, the opportunities and structure provided at our centers will help foster positive self concepts in our children. A child who can like and trust him/herself can reach out to others and can throughout life face new and possibly troubling situations with assurance of success.
