Summer Spirit Week at Tender Care PPEC was a Success!

Providing a Helping Hand for Special Needs Children and Families.

🌞 We’re thrilled to announce that our Summer Spirit Week was an incredible success! Filled with energy, enthusiasm, and a whole lot of spirit! From start to finish, our center came together to make this week one to remember. 🎉

Throughout the week, each day brought its own unique theme and excitement. Whether it was Pajama Day, Disney Day, or Beach Day, everyone embraced the themes with creativity and passion. Our halls were alive with colorful outfits, spirited decorations, and contagious laughter.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who participated, contributed, and supported Summer Spirit Week. Your enthusiasm and energy made all the difference, and we couldn’t have had such a successful week without each and every one of you.

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.
