Summer is here! This month, our little learners are making summer memories together as they learn to stay safe in the sun and water.

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.
