Why Choose Tender Hearts?
At Tender Hearts, play is recognized and honored as the foundation for all learning! It is how children learn and develop ideas about the world. Play also helps build critical thinking skills, problem solving skills, and leadership skills. The toys and materials at Tender Hearts are powered purely by a child's imagination and are designed to engage the natural curiosity of children. We believe children learn best by digging in, and the proof of their learning will be on their hands, arms, feet, clothing, in their hearts and in their minds.
Tender Hearts is quality-rated through Bright & Early North Dakota! Bright & Early North Dakota is an initiative led by North Dakota Department of Human Services to ensure that children receive the quality child care they need for success in school and life.

It is our desire that you feel valued and respected in every interaction with us and that you feel comfortable talking to us about issues relating to your child - whether it's sharing exciting family news or expressing concern about something that happened at our program. Our door is always open and if it matters to you, it matters to us.
We believe the Bible to be the only infalliable, authroitative Word of God. We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
At our core, we are all about ministry. We believe that children are a gift from God and that each child has unique gifts and talents. Many of our activities, conversations, and teaching moments are focused on the truths found in God's Word. It is not uncommon to see toddlers praying for each other's families by name before mealtimes! We consider it a joy and privilege to plant some of the first seeds of faith in the lives of young children in partnership with their families.
