Our Hershey Family Welcomes Your Family for Certified Preschool and Kindergarten, Full & Part-Time Child Care, Summer Camp, and More!

Since 1984, Tender Years has been offering more than just standard daycare. We’re a family-owned business that understands the challenges of being a parent in today’s hectic world, and the need for quality child care. We know, because we’re parents too. That’s why we created a learning environment that enriches your child and helps them develop critical skills – while giving you the convenience you want and the peace of mind you need.

Our Hershey Child Development Center accommodates up to 135 children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Each classroom in the facility is specially designed for each specific developmental group. The center also offers a large fenced playground area for gross motor skill development.
