Tender Loving Kare, Smyrna is an early Education School which provides 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.

My daughter has been at TLK since she was about 20 weeks old. Now that she’s only 3, and going 3x a week since I’m working from home, she is always saying how much she loves school and her friends and that she wants to go back. As a mom, it’s a great feeling knowing that their kid is as happy (happier??) somewhere else as they are at home. It’s a safe and fun environment to learn in, and it’s amazing watching her grow and learn compared to being home with us this past summer. We love our teachers!

Our son has been at TLK for almost 2 years! Through out our time here the staff has been absolutely amazing! We can tell what a great education he is getting from the phenomenal teachers and staff! They have made us feel welcomed, safe and give us a sound mind as we head to work each day! Ms. Taylor and Ms. Amanda are always a warm welcoming face! I would absolutely recommend TLK to anyone looking for daycare !

My daughter has been going to TLK since she was 8 weeks old. It was hard choosing a daycare due to being a first time mom, but this was best one we found and we are glad we put her here! We have loved the family atmosphere for the past 2 years and loved watching her grow with the curriculum they have created for her age. Due to this pandemic and the hardship that it has created on our family we will be removing her from daycare and will miss everyone terribly! I highly recommend this daycare
