Child Care, Preschools & After School
Santa Cruz, CA
Tender Blossoms is a place where your child will be sheltered from the stresses of the world, able to blossom, fruit, and find their roots. We offer your child a world filled with song, the wonders of nature, nourishing foods, and the love of friends.
The mission of Tender Blossoms Preschool and Family Home Daycare is to skillfully and lovingly meet the needs of working families for high quality childcare. It is to hold a safe space for young children to learn, play, and create in harmony with their surroundings and each other. It is to nourish young children with healthy food, rest, and play.
At Tender Blossoms, we offer both Daycare and Preschool curriculum. Infants and toddlers enroll for full day care, and preschoolers have the option of a shorter day, if desired. The mixed age setting offers each child a chance to settle into a home away from home, and seamlessly transition to a preschool environment, without having to switch facility or go through separation anxiety. Infants and toddlers are engaged in developmentally appropriate challenges and given the highest quality care imaginable.
Preschoolers are offered plenty of time to play and “do their work,” modeling meaningful work of their teachers, and engaging in free play with their friends. Additionally, there are daily offerings of music circles, dance activities, watercolor painting, and plenty of puzzles, building, and other manipulative play.
