As a full time working mom, my daughter has been at TLE since she was 12 weeks old full time. She is now four. She also attends their summer programs. In the four years at TLE, I couldn't have asked for better teachers. The teachers are wonderful - from the nursery to the preschool. Each one emulating their own characteristics that bring life to the classroom and experiences that my daughter has always talked about at the end of her day. Last year and this year, I have been beyond impressed with the academics of the school. Sophia can spell her name. She knows her colors, shapes, numbers and letters. I am comfortable and confident that Sophia will have an advantage going into Kindergarten when the time comes because of her education at TLE.
Also, all the parents at TLE are nice!! Sophia has made so many friends, and I've become friends with all their parents. Everyone says good morning to each other, and good night. You find yourself knowing the names of children that aren't even in class with your child! Sophia says hello to children and knows their names of even the babies! It truly is that kind of family, loving environment.
The few of the many things Sophia always talks about is the time spent outside in the nice weather. They have "wacky water Wednesday's." Time during the day is spent in what Sophia calls the "ball room"- which is that make believe land room. Sophia loved "Soccer Sam" their soccer program. She also did yoga, dance and music. Their "enrichment" programs are a lot of fun so Sophia tells me! And they come home with these CDs to listen to from their program. For soccer, they came home with a soccer ball and bag. For music, she came home with a box of musical instruments (she could have kept that at school and I wouldn't have minded). Sophia comes home with a backpack full of projects at the end of the week, and daily her clothes are indicative of the time she had at school 🙂 The school also always has the Fire Department come in, and other groups. They do "Muffins with Mom" the Friday before Mother's Day, and "Donuts with Dad" before Father's Day. They definitely offer several events for parents to join their children in activities. They always have classroom parties for the holidays and always celebrate everyone's birthday.
The food program offers healthy choices and healthy snacks.
TLE is always open, has great hours, and rarely closes.
The Director, Linda, is awesome! She truly is the child-whisperer. Any concerns or questions are listened to and addressed. My daughter LOVES her, and so do I. Last year, my daughter was having a difficult time with separation anxiety in the morning, and Linda truly helped the both of us get through it! She identified Sophia's need and tended to it with such a warm and nurturing heart. Irene always has an open door to parents, and children - even if they are rummaging through her desk! I really could go on and on about Linda, Irene and all the teachers at TLE.
I have recommended TLE to my employees and they too have been pleased with TLE. Expectations of a school are exceeded at TLE.
