About Us

Our Purpose

At Tender Care Learning Centers our purpose is clear: we exist to help children develop a lifelong love of learning.

Our award-winning, nurturing teachers, paired with our warm and welcoming “at home” environments, ensure that every child is tenderly cared for. Each of our age-appropriate, nationally recognized programs focus on your child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development using fun and engaging teaching strategies. Our goal every day is to prepare children for a seamless transition into each new phase of early childhood development, then on to kindergarten and beyond.

We believe that parents are an integral part of a child’s development. We strive to develop strong parent/teacher partnerships where you are free to share your beliefs regarding your child’s education. We have an open-door policy where parents are welcome to join us during any part of the day. We offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year to discuss your child’s developmental progress and keep you well informed on a daily basis about your child’s experiences at Tender Care.

Our History

Tender Care Learning Centers was founded in 1982 in Pittsburgh when our first center opened in Bethel Park.

Tender Care continued to grow by opening new centers for the next several years, providing quality child care and developmental services for many families in the Pittsburgh area. Tender Care is one of the largest non-profit organizations in the country dedicated solely to quality early childhood education. We currently operate 18 child care centers in Pennsylvania and one in West Virginia. Our schools have achieved and are maintaining excellent reputations for quality in the communities which we presently serve. We are proud to have achieved NAEYC accreditation!

Our families’ and teachers’ dedication to this organization has made this company what it is today. For over 40 years, we have been successfully helping thousands of families with their early care and education needs. Thank you for being a part of our family!
