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!
My son recently transferred from another daycare and he has adjusted so quickly thanks to the wonderful teachers in his room. I know he is well cared for when I pick up a very happy child after work, who doesn’t even rush to leave! I also like that the office and front desk staff are involved and make sure to get to know me and my son as much as possible. While this new site is still getting on its feet and sorting out what they need, the class is run smoothly without any affect to the kids. Any and all questions are answered without hesitation. Thank you everyone to making these first few days a wonderful new experience for our family!
I recently called this location of the learning experience to enroll my infant and I just want to say the director I spoke to was so helpful and amazing. She was very informative and patient with all my questions which I really appreciated being a new mom. I am definitely enrolling with this center.
I cannot say enough good things about TLE - Fort Hamilton. To start with, if you live in Bay Ridge you know how hard it is to find a good day care. Most of them are family owned child care services in private houses. We toured many day cares and finally decided on TLE - Fort Hamilton as it was a brand new facility with amazing staff and teachers. The center director (Shiffy) was very welcoming and answered all our questions with patience. The teachers (Ms. Sabina and Ms. Nay) are wonderful who genuinely care for your kids. A few days in and our son fit right in, he is eating almost everything they have for lunch, socializing with his peers and communicating with his teachers. They also have an app called TLE Parent which is super useful for interacting with teachers and getting daily updates about your child. Let me try to highlight some of the positives of TLE Fort Hamilton that convinced us to enroll our kid in this childcare as compared to others in the area. Hope this helps some of the other parents out there: 1: With over 400 TLE locations all over US, I have not come across a single one which has less than 4 stars on Google Reviews. This shows that they are doing something right. 2: TLE has a set curriculum for every age group which gives your child a structure. Their centers are very colorful and vibrant which stimulates your child's curious minds. Also their characters are fun. My son already identifies elephants as Bubbles which is one of his friends at school. Considering all these factors, we are at peace knowing that our son will easily adjust to a new TLE location if we ever were to move to another city. 3: TLE Fort Hamilton is a brand new facility which means it is super clean and safe for my son. It is spacious with 3 floors and an outside play area. The staff, the teachers (special shout out to Ms. Sabina) and even the owners are wonderful. They truly care. 4: TLE Fort Hamilton has an option for early drop off and late pickup which is great for us. They also provide breakfast and lunch. Most importantly the tuition is very competitive as compared to other day cares in Bay Ridge. Tip: Check to see if your employer is listed as one of the partners in their Work and Family Benefits Program as it gives you 10% off the tuition. They have over 200 companies as their partners. The list is available on their website. 5: TLE Parent app lets you communicate with teachers without actually taking them away from what they are supposed to do, looking after your kids. I know some new parents would be anxious and would want frequent updates about their child. Getting picture updates on this app is very helpful and I enjoy seeing my boy happy and busy with all the activities throughout the day. Hope this review will help some of the parents who are looking for a quality daycare in and around Bay Ridge. I will try to update my review in a year and mention other positives (or negatives if any) about this center.
Characters that bring learning to life

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.
