Testimonials


Please Consider Leaving Tender Care a Google Review!

I don't worry about my child while she is here. She appears happy when she's here and I really look to her reactions for guidance about what she enjoys because she's still learning to speak. She's treated like a princess and they are really concerned about what's best for her. Some schools just "watch" your children, but here, they really treat her like she's their responsibility!read more

Such an amazing facility the staff treats you like family. From the first day I visited the location the nurses were so friendly and informative their main focus was to understand my child's needs. The facility is very clean and well organized after meeting with the staff and touring the toddlers room. I was able to go to work with a peace of mind that my child would be in great hands not to mention their transportation service makes my morning go very smooth. I would refer any parent to the tender care family.read more

Beyond impressed.The love and expertise I have witnessed here is amazing. Rarely have I encountered this level of consistency and commitment observed in the nursing, respiratory and ancillary staff as well as with the incredible therapists I have seen here, and with regularity. I recommend Tender Care without hesitation. The staff clearly loves what they do, and they truly love these children. This is comprehensive, intelligent, thorough, loving and meticulous care for children at its finest. Please tour this facility if you find yourself needing this type of care for a loved one and tell your colleagues. Tender Care raises the bar and represents superior childcare.Their facility is the standard by which all others should be judged.read more

The services that are provided for the special needs pediatric community is incredible. The children are able to socialize with other children just like them. It's an all in one resource and center that encompasses all the services a child with medical needs requires. Skilled nursing, therapy, assistance with transportation services, care coordination, pre- school preparation and a food program through the State of Florida. Plus TCC has been around for over 25 years and well known in the community . I've been a Tender care employee for over 8 years and I'm proud to be a part of Tender Care's growth over the years.read more

Tender car facility is a warm, nurturing and professional environment. All the staff genuinely care for the children and offer a level of care and support that is unmatched in any other special needs care facility. I am honored to have spent my clinical rotation at this facility and look forward to perhaps volunteering in the future.

This daycare truly makes me feel like we are family. The owner goes out of his way to ensure my son recieves the best care possible. Anything we need or request they accommodate us immediately. I really cant say enough good things. All of his staff including maintenance remember my name and greet me with all smiles. I feel 100% comfortable trusting tender care with my baby. He is so happy when I pick him up. They spoil him just as I do at home. ♥️Mommyread more
