My daughter Mia started at the TLE when she was only 18-month old, and she loved it from the beginning. When I took her to school, she was so excited that she wouldn’t even say goodbye. The teachers kept her busy and inspired her every time, and she would create many artworks. The facility is very well maintained, and the communication with the school has been fantastic. From 1 to 5, I’d give them 10. Luciana

A huge shout out to TLE Astoria team. I have to share this as my heart melts, when I see my daughter leaping in the arms of the staff in the morning. The love you have shown my daughter and ultimately my family has made such a positive impact. She feels safe and loved when we had lost hope of school-setting for her. We love you so much! Sarah

If I could give The Learning Experience - Astoria 10 STARS, I would do it in a heartbeat. I've had experience with Nany-shares and stand-alone daycares. I enrolled my 2 Children right after the COVID reopening. I can not be happier with my decision. We are greeted with a warm smile every morning, and kids even forget that I'm there. ( this part is sad for me)!! Communication is timely and detailed. COVID protocol is strict and followed. The directors are friendly, experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful. To top it all, they come up with creative ways to keep parents involved in the curriculum. I 100% recommend The Learning Experience of Astoria.
