The Tenderheart Toddlers & Infants house Philosophy:
We offer a place where young minds are encouraged to figure out the world through discovery and play. Our program was designed for toddlers & infants ages 3 months to 3 years of age, by individuals who love and understand children. Our home environment provides play and learning areas that comfortably encourage children to explore while building self-confidence, and social skills while supporting emotional growth. We demonstrate healthy habits by spending time in the wonder and joy of nature and by encouraging children to make the best choices about the food they put into their bodies.
Parent volunteers expand our program by providing a strong community connection to our children through sharing their diverse talents and by supporting a positive connection to children. We are devoted to building a strong foundation for each child so that each child has a positive self-image of themselves and sees themselves as important members of their community. We are conscientious about reaching the whole child and strive to provide an inclusive program that changes with the needs of the children. We offer assistance with potty training, support developing and maintaining friendships and engage in a fun and creative program that teaches children the tools for preschool success in a literacy rich environment.
