Switched my daughter Julissa from a Montessori environment to Tender Hearts and was extremely pleased with the decision. My daughter has learned so much. It is a very caring, structured and creative environment. It has really prep my child for kindergarten. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating and owners Ken and Amelia are wonderful people.
My two little children attend the summer camp at Tender Hearts. I never even realized they had summer camps for children this small until one of our friends started sending her son there. It is great for me, because it lets me get more errands done during the summer months, and it's great for my children because they get to do so many fun activities. I'm certain it is helping to put them ahead of the class developmentally too, and that it will make it easier for them to transition into kindergarten. If you have small children, check into it!
My grandson attends Tender Hearts Preschool, and both my daughter and myself have been really pleased. He's only two, but he already knows a lot of his alphabet, and can count to 10. Kudos to the teachers!
My baby boy is happy in the two years of preschooling in Tender Hearts that he got. He now knows much more than other kids in the vicinity. I’m happy as a mother and proud to see my son so confident. All I can say is Thank You Tender Hearts!
I have been sending my son to Tender Hearts Preschool and Kindergarten Enrichment program and I am really satisfied with their performance so far. They have great activities going on, in order to keep the kids entertained, as well as educate them. They have dramatic play and painting, reading and writing activities of all kinds, board games and athletic tournaments, for them to compete positively. They have some summer camps, where I am planning to send him next summer. All the other mums I have asked, are really excited about the camp, so I guess I ought to take their word on that!
Tender Hearts runs a great summer camp! They have so many activities for the children--arts and crafts, sports and more. There are a lot of kids that attend the summer camp who are there during the normal school year, so that helps to keep my son's friendships strong over the summer months.
I send my child to Tender Hearts Preschool summer camp. Timothy doesn't do well if he doesn't have some kind of activity during the summer to keep him busy since he is an easily distracted child. The summer camp makes it possible for him to have fun, learn something, and socialize with others his age. He misses his school friends, so this is good. It gives me a chance to catch up on my errands, which isn't just convenient, it's necessary since I am a single mom.
I don't believe in overkill. 3 and 4 year old children should learn about sharing and caring and academics should definately be a big part of a preschool experience. Many preschools in Sayville, one in particular, offers a crazy academic curriculum that includes French, yoga, study of explorers, the solar system etc... NOT NECESSARY! Children need to enjoy school and not become burnt out by second grade! Shouldn't they enjoy celebrating holidays and not ignore them? Tender Hearts Preschool offers what is important. Highly trained educators, small classes, integrated learning, holiday parties, field trips, art, math, science, technology, and of course reading and writing skills that will prepare them for Kindergarten. Amazing preschool! I highly recommend it. Don't buy into the fluff that other schools pretend to offer! IT IS NOT NECESSARY and you will be donating money and time every month!
Cannot say enough about Tender Hearts Preschool in Mt. Sinai. My two year old son started attending in February and he loves it. The school is clean and the staff is both caring and attentive. I have the good fortune of my husband working in the building where the school is located and he is able to see just how much our son is cared for. Thumbs up to a great preschool!
My son attends the Tender Hearts location in sayville, but it is the same owners as the mt. sinai location. He goes one day a week for now but I am enrolling him in their summer program. It is a beautiful school, with really pretty murals and lots of great educational toys. They do lots of cute projects, and what I really feel best about is that I truly feel they care about my son. He doesn't get lost in the shuffle there. The owner is frequently around and she really cares about the school.
Thank you for a wonderful 1st school experience for Julianna. Tenderhearts truly is lives up to its name. You both have been such a positive influence on Julianna’s education. Thank you for providing her with a love and appreciation for learning. We will miss all of you.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking such good care of my children over the years. You have created a comfortable, loving environment where children can thrive and it really means a lot. We will miss coming there every week, and wish you all the best.
Tenderhearts has been a wonderful experience for us and we cannot say enough good things. You and your staff are loving, caring and patient, and it shows in everything you do for the children. From our son's first day at preschool to the first day getting off the bus for the kindergarten enrichment program, we have watched him grow in confidence and knowledge. He loves coming there and will miss you all. We keep telling him he will see you for Pizza and movie nights. We look forward to the next 2 years our youngest will be spending with you.
Thank you so much for everything you have done the past two and a half years to help Jamie grow and learn. You accommodated all of our requests/needs and we really appreciate that. We will continue to refer friends to you and will soon be returning with Alex. Until then, the best of luck to you.
We cannot possibly express our gratitude enough. We have trusted our children’s’ little hearts and minds with you for the last four years. (WOW! Has it really been that long?). You never let us down. My children are so in love with you and their school. Looking back I always knew I made the right choice.
We are going to miss Tenderhearts Preschool and the people that work there. We have always felt comfortable leavings Leila with you guys and we really appreciate the care you took of her, she really loved it there. Thank you again for everything, Leila not only had fun, but she learned a lot too!
Thank you for making John Arnolds first year in school so happily memorable. We’ve watched him learn and grow so much while at Tenderhearts. We will miss you guys! Miss Amelia’s smile always brightened up our days! Thank you for being so patient with our hectic schedules. Your school has made a lasting impact in our lives and we are so blessed to have had our son in your school. Thanks a million!
We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you and your staff has done for Joshua. When Joshua first came to you, he was very shy and nervous, barely speaking and a bit introverted. Now he is confident, outgoing and learned so much and has made so many friends. You and your staff have made a lasting impression on him and have taught him well. You should be so proud of your school and your fabulous teachers! I will recommend you to anyone and everyone I meet. See you in a year when the twins are 2.
Thank you for all of your help with our little Jason. He’s learned so much from you and your school. He’s so ready for kindergarten now. We couldn’t have done it without your help. We’ll come back to visit. Have a wonderful summer.
It is so hard to really put into words just how grateful we are for the wonderful year Brooke had at Tenderhearts. I came to you full of fear and tears, so worried about change and your familiar faces combined with your “tender hearts” truly made the transition smooth, happy and educational. We are forever grateful.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do my fieldwork at your preschool. You are an excellent teacher and a wonderful person. The children are very lucky to have you for their teacher. I enjoyed coming in every Monday and helping out. Thank you for your support.
Thank you so much for the giving me the opportunity to observe and learn so much from your teachers and wonderful students. The experience I have gotten, and knowledge I have gained is priceless and I am so grateful.
