Tender Care Preschool & Child Care

2135 Ridge View Dr., San Diego, CA

Starting at $180/wk

Our program is Eco-Friendly, so we want to emphasize the importance of children being outdoors so they may learn natural processes and become knowledgeable and appreciative of nature.
We do organic gardening. We compost our food scraps in compost bins and through vermi-composting. We do rainwater harvesting, and use grey-water to water the fruit trees. We have even gone solar!
We offer healthy meals and snacks. We provide foods that are minimally processed and mostly organic. We strive to follow The Environmental Working Group's, "Shoppers Guide To Pesticides in Produce". We serve "family" style.
It is great when we are able to eat what we have harvested from our trees and gardens!
We recognize each child as an unique individual. We seek to provide the most appropriate learning experience for your child by creating an environment that is child-guided and developmentally based. Our program provides children with the freedom of choice within structure, which encourages the development of problem-solving skills, self-reliance, and socialization. We believe that play is an important part of a child's day. When children play, they construct their own knowledge of the world, physically, cognitively, socially, and this is the most meaningful type of knowledge. By observing how and what type of play the children are engaged in, this helps us determine the activities and experiences to offer the children.
