TenderCare Preschool serves families by providing care and education for young children, starting at 2 weeks old. TenderCare has classes for infants, mobiles, and toddlers, as well as two Head Start classrooms and a Georgia Pre-K class. The Pre-K is a Georgia lottery-funded preschool, offering breakfast, snacks and lunch, while following the county school calendar.
