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.

I would first like to say that my family and I was hesitant about starting a new daycare coming from the experience we had a previous daycare. My son was facing some challenges out of his control which made my search for a great daycare even more stressful. I am not sure exactly how I stumbled along this daycare but I am so glad that I did. And after reading some of the reviews for this location in their other location I knew I had to come in for a tour. When I came in for the tour the staff was friendly they were professional and they were really concerned about how they could help me meet my needs of my son. They listen to what I needed what I didn't like about the previous daycare and gave me some I hope. I would just like to say every since my son has started he has needed less outside services. His behavior is totally 360 different his attitude is different he's excited again to go back to daycare every day. My son is in a two-year-old and I'm so happy that they're learning different things and encounter a new challenges as they grow and develop. Plus they also have a preschool program we're never leaving!!!!

My second kid had been to other day care before TLK but TLK was our ultimate stop. They are professional, caring and sincere people and they very good care of my child. If you are looking for day care, look no further, just give them a try

We loved TLK/Cadence Academy. Everyone one at this location was caring and took the time out to get to know my child. My daughter thrived there and the staff is excellent.
