Before/After School

Care Programs


Tendercare is proud to offer a comprehensive program for school age enrollees. Please be aware that our school bus district for Cecil County Public Schools is Bayview Elementary; however, children attending North East Elementary or The Tome School may take advantage of our private transportation services (offered at an additional charge).

Our morning program allows children to engage in center-based free play until either the bus arrives or our transit vehicles depart for school. During this time, breakfast is served until 8:00am.

Upon arrival of children for after-care they will receive an afternoon snack followed by an opportunity to complete homework. We understand that some families prefer to engage in homework activities with their child; therefore, children not participating are allowed center-based free play time. On days when the weather permits, students engage in late afternoon outdoor play (please make sure you send your child with weather appropriate clothing).

When schools are closed due to scheduled holidays or professional days students may attend with advance registration and a $10 deposit. Children will need to bring a bagged lunch but are offered breakfast (prior to 8:00am), a morning snack and an afternoon snack. Should schools be closed, delayed or dismissed early due to weather (fog, snow, etc.) additional fees will apply for the extended hours of care.

In addition to the before/after care for this age group, we also offer daily care when school is out during the summer through our youth camp. We offer fun, yet educational field trips and guest speakers plus weekly themes such as our past "Modern Marvels Week", "Culinary Creations Week", "Survivor Week" and more! Children will also enjoy making their own camp movie complete with a "red-carpet" premiere!
