Tender Care Celebrated Mother's Day 2024!

Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

We celebrated Mother’s Day 2024! We thank all mother figures, and devoted fathers pulling double duty from everyone here at Tender Care PPEC! We celebrate the boundless love, unwavering strength, and tireless dedication moms bring into the lives of their children every single day.

To every mom who has touched the lives of children, whether by birth, through love, or by stepping in as a guiding light, your impact is immeasurable. To the mother figures who provide support, wisdom, and care, your role is a testament to the fact that motherhood is not just about biology, but about the heart.

And to the fathers who are navigating the path of both mom and dad, your extraordinary efforts do not go unnoticed. Your ability to fill every role with grace and love is truly inspiring.

Each one of you plays a crucial role in nurturing and shaping the future, showing us the true meaning of love, resilience, and commitment. We honor you, we appreciate you, and we thank you for the profound difference you make every day.

We hope this Mother’s Day was filled with joy, love, and the recognition you so deeply deserve. Here’s to celebrating the amazing individuals you are. Happy Mother’s Day!

Tender Care PPEC provides care for medically complex and fragile children from birth to 21 years of age in a daycare-like environment staffed with nurses, CNAs, and therapists. We are the first independently owned PPEC in the State of Florida with our initial center opening in 1988. This means we have an abundance of experience and knowledge in providing loving care to this special pediatric population. We have 6 Tender Care PPEC centers throughout Florida, with our newest facility located in Lake Park.

Lake Park Location

Our goal is to enhance the development of each child through collaborative relationships between families, physicians, nurses, and therapists. This holistic approach to care is carried out in an environment that allows the child to engage in social interactions with their peers. This results in thriving children, well-positioned to achieve their greatest potential. We also offer transportation at no cost and provide nutritious meals throughout the day. 

What sets us apart is that we care for and treat every child like family. We have passion in our hearts for our children and a desire to see them succeed.
