Tender Loving Kare, Newark is an early education school which provides childcare programs for children ages infant through fourteen years. Our philosophy includes providing a nurturing environment that fosters each child’s self-identity, utilizing developmentally appropriate practices to enhance each child’s learning opportunities.

Family and community are an important component at TLK. As a small preschool, families are an integral part of the program. Parents have opportunities to see their children’s teachers daily and to participate in the program as their schedules allow.

This close relationship enhances each child’s personal growth and achievement and promotes a secure and safe environment. Communication between teacher and families adds to each child’s learning environment and offers support for continued success.


The infant/toddler program provides a loving, nurturing environment in which children can develop at their own pace. We offer opportunities for each child to explore their environment and learn through play. Singing, finger play, story time, and art are all part of daily activities for this age group.


The preschool program is a full day program that provides a curriculum that is balanced in work and play which allows for an introduction of a variety of subjects that includes group experiences, creative activities, listening and sharing stories, rest, language skills, writing skills, problem solving, independence, indoor and outdoor play, and health and safety education.


The before and after programs offer services for several of the local schools in our area. Transportation is provided to the schools by the school district and our own transportation service. This program is a structured environment where students can work on homework, socialize, and have continued learning experiences while in a safe caring environment. This program also provides services for when children are off school due to in service days or other school holidays.


This program is a continuation of our school-age program. During the summer break we provide a program for children finishing Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. The children are in separate groups, based on their grade level. All groups participate in outside field trips and in-house activities which enhance learning experiences while having fun.

Tender Loving Kare is so much more than daycare. We are proud to provide an exceptional preschool education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home.

My boys have been at TLK since 6 weeks, we have formed great relationships over the last 6 years. When my oldest was headed to kindergarten he was more than prepared thanks to his amazing teachers. We have decided to move and I am so sad to say goodbye to all the amazing teachers and staff at TLK. I’m thankful for your time and patience, especially given the pandemic. None of those changes have been easy, but they were handled appropriately. Our family has been so lucky to have this school, it will be very hard to find one that comes close. We’ll miss you!!! Thank you for the goodbye party for Dec, further proof of just how amazing you all truly are!

Our son started at TLK at 4 months old and our experience has been nothing but positive. We have always felt safe, and our son has always come home happy. The staff at TLK are one of a kind. They became like family and treated our family with respect and kindness. We would highly recommend and do highly recommend TLK to anyone that asks! -The Backus Family
