Tender Moments Play House began in December 1996 with the goal of opening an infant & toddler daycare that specialized in a safe and nurturing environment for children under the age of 3. Over the years, it's expanded to include a preschool and school aged childcare.


In 1999, we became an accredited family child care home by the National Association for Family Child Care.  In 2008, we became a level 4 participant with the state of Indiana's Paths to Quality. 

The staff that works at Tender Moments has extensive education or prior experience working directly with children in the early childhood field. All staff continually attend conferences, workshops and continuing education to increase their knowledge level of best practices and early childhood education.
