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!
TLE-LIC is our first experience with a childcare center for our 3 y/o. We were so nervous, especially in light of the ongoing pandemic. The staff is so welcoming, reassuring, and attentive. The school has strict COVID protocols and are serious about travel protocols. They call to check on our son when he's out sick and are so easy to access via phone/email. Our son has learned so much in the short time he's been at the school. The only reason we're leaving is because he's starting regular Pre-K in the fall. So sad to be going!
My son joined the preschool class in March 2021 at TLE when he turned 3 years old. He learned speaking English from zero (we speak a second language at home) within a month. He makes good friends at school and really enjoys his time at TLE. The staffs are supper friendly, warm, and responsive. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Nazmin and Ms. Hennie for managing the dedicated team and assuring COVID protocols that I feel safe to drop my child every day. A special THANK YOU to Ms. Mary - thank you for all the love and care you gave to Aiden. You are such an excellent teacher that we are sad to say goodbye. My son really misses you after we moved to California . We are grateful having my son joining TLE family and I highly recommend this daycare.
We joined the TLE family in January 2021. My daughter joined the infant classroom at 4 months old. As this is our first daughter, you can imagine how nervous we were when choosing a daycare, but we are so happy we chose TLE. The staff is warm, friendly and professional and our daughter looks like she’s having a great time. We can already see huge leaps in her development. The pictures and updates we get in the app are amazing and let us know our daughter is being cared for all day long. Definitely recommend!
Our daughter joined the infant class at the learning experience when she was 4 month-old. Since then, we have been very happy of our experience at the LIC location. With the current pandemic crisis, they are taking all the necessary steps to ensure a safe environment which remains very welcoming, joyful and warm for the kids. Our baby grew so much since she started daycare, she gets to do craft projects, enjoy the playground and interact with same age babies. Teachers and staff are always kind and very responsive. Attentive to our daughter needs for feeding and naps. Daily pictures through the app are definitely a huge bonus.
TLE was the very first daycare experience for my family. When I say this center exceeded any expectations for this nervous mama - that is a true understatement. Hennie and Nazmin run the center and are always responsive, professional and HAPPY. You can tell they (and all of the teachers there) truly love what they do. My 3.5 year old daughter had a few teachers including Ms. Audrey, Ms. Za and Ms. Mary. My daughter raved about each and every one of them. My 1.5 year old son had Ms. Angie and Ms. Monet and the fact that during drop-off he would literally jump out of my arms to go into theirs was priceless. TLE uses an app to share how much the kids ate, activities they did and uploaded multiple pictures throughout the day. They did a great job of implementing masks for kids 2+. They have a fantastic curriculum and the center is phenomenal on the inside including an extensive play area called Make Believe Blvd which has an insane amount of toys and an interactive smart board. They also have an indoor playground. Not a dime was spared in ensuring kids would literally never get bored! Nazmin/Hennie- I wish you all the success for the years to come and I'll never forget the impact your center has made on my kids. You gave my pandemic-born toddler a reason to smile everyday and love strangers. You encouraged my daughter to embrace in friendships that she will forever be grateful for. We are so incredibly sad to be leaving. Our most heartfelt "thank you" to all of the TLE LIC staff for setting the bar so high and an absolutely unforgettable experience.
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.
