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.

INFANT/TODDLER PROGRAM

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.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

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.

SCHOOL-AGE PROGRAM

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.

SUMMER CAMP

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.

I will start off by saying, I had no problems with my sons Teachers while he was at the center. He absolutely loves Ms.Joyce and she took very great care of him while he was in her care. The issue started after he left the center. My son was a student at Tender Loving Kare up until August of this year. (2020) While he was in attendance there, I was paying weekly because I was under the impression that my Purchase of Care had stopped. Later on down the line, one of the administrators told me that the whole time I was paying out of pocket, POC was covering my copays and that now I was owed a refund in the amount of almost 600 dollars. I asked when my refund would be issued and was told that my child had to be unenrolled in the childcare center in order to get it and that refunds typically take 30-90 days. My sons last day at the center was the 21st of August. It is now the 29th of December and I have yet to receive my refund. I keep getting the run around about the money that is owed to me and it has now been almost 4 months. I was told that there’s a list of refunds that my name should be on, however, I was never contacted about my name being on any type of list. Not only have I not received my refund, but I should have never been charged in the first place seeming as though purchase of care was covering my copayments during Covid. I have reached out to Cadence education via email and also called several times to speak with someone and inquire about my refund. I have filed a complaint with the BBB and next I will be reaching out to the media. We are in the middle of a pandemic and this company not only had the audacity to charge me when the state was paying them, but now I can’t seem to get an answer on the money that is owed to me and when I will be receiving it. This is very sad, unprofessional, inappropriate, greedy, conniving and down right disgusting.

My daughter absolutely loves coming to TLK. With everything going on in today’s world, TLK is a place where she can come to play with friends & still be able to complete her virtual learning.TLK follows all guidelines, social distancing, masks on at all times, and has children washing their hands regularly. As a parent, this make me feel more at ease.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueWe sent our 6 mos. old to TLK for a few months before the pandemic began. We were very happy with the staff and how they took care of our daughter. The location was secure for keeping her safe. The teachers were great and they were responsive and attentive to her. We were quite pleased and recommend TLK for child care.
