Delaware 5-Star Education

Tender Loving Kare is an early Education School which provides programs for children ages infant through fourteen years.

TLK is a privately owned and operated independent school which was established February, 1994 with a vision of providing high quality early education and care for all children. This foundation serves as a driving force for continued growth and focus on expanding the programs that we offer.

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 school, 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.
