Welcome to TLE Elgin! I have been with the company since August 2020 and have been so excited welcoming families to TLE! I have my bachelors in Family and Child…
We love hearing from our happy parents
Parents are such an important part of The Learning Experience family. We love hearing from them–especially when they share with us the growth and learning they see in their children!
If you’re looking for a trustworthy daycare, look no further! When I started my daycare search for my 1yr old I was very cautious as he has Down syndrome and I knew his needs may not be the same as other peers - we needed a center that was understanding, patient & willing to learn alongside us as to how to get him to bloom. When I toured TLE Christy welcomed us with open arms and had no worries about my son and his special needs. Each week they had him doing new things - eating solids, army crawling, holding his own cup, etc. This particular TLE has been nothing but accepting of our family and goes above and beyond with their care of all the kids! We love the teachers, the curriculum, and all the center has to offer.
Our daughter started at TLE after a year and a half of being only in our home with caregivers coming to us. We were nervous about starting her in daycare, but TLE has been an amazing experience for her and for us. We visited several other daycares in the area, but TLE impressed us the most. They have been friendly, responsive, and most of all, they have taken great care of our daughter. She loves her teachers and her friends in class. I especially love that they keep me updated throughout the day via their app. I get updates on what she's eating, what she's doing, and lots of fun pictures. They have a great curriculum for each age level and she loves participating in their learning games and exercises. We can't say enough good things about TLE!
We are lucky to have this center so close to home. Our daughter absolutely loves going! The center is always clean and beautifully decorated with bright colors and characters. The staff is incredible, friendly and very invested in not only getting to know the children but also the parents. We LOVE everything about TLE Elgin!
Choosing a provider is a hard task. We want to trust someone to provide the level of care we provide at home. With all of the stories we see on the Internet, our guards instantly go up to protect our little ones. From the moment we attended the open house, we knew this was the right place for our son. The teachers took time to engage with us while giving a tour of the facility. With the pandemic, we were still hesitant on a start date. After sharing my concerns, the Director assured us of the safety protocols in place and let me know when I was ready, they would be ready! Fast forward to now. Our son has been attending since October 2020 and his development has been a pleasure to watch. There’s a few interactions that have stood out for me. First, there was a day when my son was fussy and didn’t want to enter the classroom. After some coaxing, he proceeded over the threshold with his teacher. I was entering my car and noticed he was still crying. Within seconds, his teacher picked him up and gave him cuddles to soothe him and stop crying. At a previous center, they would let me cry it out. This warmed my heart. The second good observation was just a week ago. I was approached by his teacher encouraging me to move him to full-time care because she noticed signs of regression. We, yes WE, discussed next steps and how we could make this an easy transition for him. Part of the challenge is he’s not fully potty trained, but they work with him daily to get him there. If you’re looking for a place to send your little one, look no further. Your child will be cared for and prepared for kindergarten. You will be treated like family here. Oh…and one other thing…the weekly newsletters are adorbs! You get to see the littles playing together and read about what they’re working on for the week. It’s a great way to provide reinforcement at home. Something else…I love the app! You get notifications with your child’s activity and pics. Look no further! TLE-Elgin is the place!
We are so glad we decided to enroll our son here. He had never been to daycare before but he quickly adjusted and now can’t wait to go see his friends in the mornings! All of the staff and teachers are friendly and welcoming and the facility itself is always spotless. It’s so nice walking in and seeing all of the children’s artwork hung on the walls. TLE was the perfect choice for our family!

Characters that bring learning to life
Designed for six stages of early development
Our curriculum is specially designed and created to focus on each of the six early stages of development: Infant, Toddler, Twaddler, Prepper, Preschooler and Kindergartener.
Built with your child’s needs in mind
At each TLE® Center, every detail was picked deliberately — and plays a key part. Together, they inspire a child’s natural curiosity and creativity, and create an overall environment where children feel comfortable, safe and ready to learn.
Committed to innovation in childcare
Since 1980, The Learning Experience® founders the Weissman family have worked to develop and implement childcare and early education programs that are innovative, ground-breaking and built upon three key principles: Learn, Play and Grow.
