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 James joined TLE in November of last year, and we can say without a shadow of a doubt, that it was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We felt so fortunate to be able to send our son to a school that was open 5 days a week, whereas many other schools were only open part-time, with a hybrid-learning capacity due to COVID restrictions. It was a godsend. TLE always maintained a safe and happy environment and the staff always went above and beyond to meet our needs as parents and the needs of our children.
We had our 2nd child recently graduate from UPK at The Learning Experience in 2020. This is a great Child Care - well run, teachers are caring and are heavily invested in the well being and development of all the kids. Our eldest child graduated Pre-K, 5 years ago. Both of our kids were with TLE since 12 months of age. The education curriculum is exceptional and both kids flourished through the programs. It is a very well run organization and Jessica and her team are fantastic. We are extremely thankful for choosing TLE for our kids!
TLE Downtown has been amazing since our son started in September. The staff is always very welcoming, energetic and attentive to the needs of all children. We love our time so far at TLE!
I highly recommend TLE to any parent. Our daughter has been at TLE since 6 months old. We experienced a few other daycare centers because both my wife and I had daycare benefits through our employers. From the first day TLE has felt like home for our daughter. TLE feels like we are leaving our daughter with family rather than a daycare. We became very close to the teachers in her first classroom Miss Dominique and Miss Jeanie. There is no question that our daughter is loved by her teachers at TLE. TLE's curriculum has enriched our daughter in many ways. She loves music class (often sings songs from school at home) and has become a sponge for new words! We are constantly amazed by what she has learned at school. The administration and director of the school have been great, we're kept informed of her day and are able to keep in touch through phone, email, or text. We often receive candid photos of her day; which brightens our day.
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.
