Tender Tech Child Development Center is located on the Flint River Campus of Southern Crescent Technical College and offers care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Tender Tech is a Bright from the Start Quality Rated Center. For the safety of you and your child, Tender Tech has security cameras in each room.
We are open to the public and are excited to teach the children using a hands-on approach to learning through Creative Curriculum. Our teachers write each week’s lesson plan based on a unit or theme and include special interactive activities for each child. We do not use a bought curriculum or “boxed curriculum” as we feel those type curriculums simply cannot meet the individual needs of each child. Every semester, our teachers assess each child using the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) as a guide and meet with parents to review their child’s progress. Because of these individual assessments, our teachers can plan activities that meet the specific needs of each child.
Tender Tech also offers a wonderful before and after school program for school-age students. The Upson-Lee school bus picks up children before school and delivers children back to Tender Tech after school. In addition, Tender Tech offers full -day child care camps for school-age students during spring and summer school breaks. The camp is full of fun interactive activities including weekly field trips, guest speakers, musical productions and more!
Tender Tech offers Quality Rated Grants to help with child care costs for parents who meet the criteria. Tender Tech accepts CAPS (Children and Parents Support) from Bright from the Start. We are a part of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) which provides reimbursement for meals served to our children.
