Enrichment Programs

The Learning Experience® is devoted to cultivating creative, compassionate, and innovative thinkers. Our enrichment kit programs serve as fundamental components to help achieve that goal. Music, math, science, dance, Yoga, performing arts, and physical fitness are all components of our exceptional Charlie Choo Choo® enrichment series. These programs encourage children to explore different avenues of learning. Because at TLE®, we believe that what is good for one child, is good for all children. Unlike other child care centers, our enrichment programs are included in the cost of regular tuition. Charlie Choo Choo® enrichment programs offer a unique approach to education geared toward broadening the children's scope of learning. The enrichment programs are offered through unique kits that are given to each child. These enrichment kits are packed with tools designed to assist TLE® teachers with implementing the enrichment programs inside their own classrooms. This approach gives TLE® teachers the flexibility to incorporate the thematic activities into the core TLE® curriculum. The learning experiences that these kits offer do not stop at the end of each 12-week session. Afterwards, the children get to bring their kits home to share what they have learned with their parents and to continue to use the resources for further learning.
