My daughter started TLE this June as a young 3yr old. This was her 2nd daycare experience since she was 6 months old. I had an awful experience at the previous school that lasted 2 months, before withdrawing her to stay at home. I was extremely nervous about trusting her in anyone's care beside... Read more
My daughter started at the learning center in November 2020, it was a big transition coming from a home daycare for the prior 18 months. I was worried, but after speaking with Ms.Val and telling her about my daughter I truly felt a sense of relief. Since that time Ms. Val has truly been the dif... Read more
I would like to leave a review for Ms. Jean; VPK AM. We LOVE Ms. Jean. She is so great with the kids and treats them just like family.

We Love TLE! I was a little hesitant on what it would be like and the experience has been great. From the first day we met my sons teacher it has been a pleasurable experience. Ms. Jean and Ms. Pat are simply the Best. My son is learning things I never expected him to learn at this age. The cur... Read more
I trust TLE with the care and education of my daughter. The facility is very clean and safe, and the staff are very compassionate (especially Kristie and Krystal in infant A!)

The owners are there almost every single day and know every child by name and the children adore them as well. It is very reassuring... Read more
My children are much to old but my coworker has her baby here and she says nothing but good things. Whenever we're discussing children her comments on Tle are always positive so I'm sure this place is great.
This center has been a safe haven to my best friends daughter. She's isn't walking yet but can be quite the handful. She's crawling now and as one would imagine you have to keep your eyes on her. Despite how busy she keeps my friend at TLE she's never had any issues or concerns.
I like TLE. My grand daughter is there and I'm happy with the how well the staff attend to all of the children there.
While I view them as a Blessing, I don't yet have children. When the times comes for me to start a family, based on everything my coworker has shared about her daughter and the teachers at TLE I'm sure to keep them in mind.
An employee of mine Toya takes her daughter Taylor here and she has said nothing but great things about the staff.
My family is down in Jacksonville, FL. When my sister had her baby Taylor, she never seemed worried and always spoke of how great the infant teachers were.
An employee of mine uses TLE River city and she's always been content in knowing that her little one Taylor was in good hands.
We came to TLE after having a bad experiance at another center. I was worried about Dylan transitioning half way thru the VPK school year. We came home from the tour with him asking me when he would get to start TLE. He was so excited and tells me everyday how much he loves it there and the peo... Read more
We love TLE!!! My son started attending TLE around 6 months old. I was reluctant to return to work and send him to a daycare, and had been less than impressed with other daycare centers in the area.

I'm active duty Navy and after the baby my wife wanted to start work. She was extremely worried about cleanliness and proper care. TLE @River city has really put her at ease knowing the staff is so good with Taylor.
My son has been attending since he was 3 months old. As a person who has always been sceptical of day cares, I was nervous about putting my son in one. I connected with Allison over the phone, and was practically ready to sign up before I ever stepped foot in the building. I had no doubts or fe... Read more

I started Aiden when he was 3 years old and he has been attending for one year. We transferred him from another daycare, and noticed a big difference in the quality of care. The teachers are loving and attentive. The curriculum is what sold us the most- he tells me how to sign certain words, an... Read more

TLE has been my son's first experience with childcare centers. He has learned so much in the short time he has attended. I feel very comfortable with the center and the knowledge he has gained since enrolling.
As someone who has been in many childcare centers, I have been impressed with TLE's programming. Adsitionally, the center seems to be very clean and secure.
I love the smart boards that the children use; so interactive. My niece has so many great facts to tell me about... Like states, capitals, countries, and Spanish!
We have been so impressed with the PreK programming. TLE does an outstanding job of setting up the building blocks for academic success. We have been most impressed with the lack of TV watching and all of the centers and art activities instead.
TLE is auch a warm, safe daycare that provides so many fun stimulating activities for kids! Keep up the great work!
There is no place else I would send our two year old, Genevieve! The owners have become like family and all the staff are so patient and caring!

I was talking with my great nephew (age 2) and he did sign language (I didn't know it was sign language at the time) I asked his mother what was he was doing and she told me he was doing sign language. She told me he learned it at TLE. Great job
When my sister told me she was putting my nephew in daycare I was concerned. But after she showed me the website and told me about the wonderful experience she had during her tour of TLE, and I was able to see how my nephew now interacts with other children I'm glad she enrolled him in TLE.
