Absolutely love this center! The teachers my daughter has had in the past and her current teachers are amazing! They have really helped to bring my daughter out of her shell through creative play and social interactions. She has truly advanced and excelled since being in this school.

Mikey enrolled at TLE Berkeley shortly after turning two. We had just moved from Pennsylvania and Mikey had to not only adjust to a new home but a new baby brother as well. Fortunately, we visited TLE Berkeley and soon after he started in the Twaddler room. As he has progressed from Twaddler to Prepper and now all the way to Preschool 3, what is still the most amazing part to me was how quickly he took to his teachers and his new friends. The people and the environment at this particular TLE was exactly what he needed to make his new home feel right. He loves going to school, playing with his friends, and yes, he even loves it when he gets homework! I could not be happier watching my son grow up with such a wonderful group of caring people. He has taken to TLE Berkeley like a home away from home, and for that, I am truly grateful.

I have had three children attend this Learning Experience center since 2008. Two have graduated to public school and the youngest is half-way through her journey. I love that Dena, and Chet still ask about my boys and are thrilled to see them when they return for a visit. Education is as much about creating relationships as it is about academics and the staff at TLE Berkeley, NJ have found a nice balance between the two key elements to students' success. Bravo!

My 3.5 year old daughter and 1 year old son go to TLE Berkeley and we love it! We started my daughter at the Jackson location when she was 6 months old and just recently moved to the Berkeley area this past March. I was anxious about how she would react to the change in location/caregivers, but the Berkeley staff were so welcoming and accommodating that she felt right at home in her new school. It was great to keep her school structure consistent and familiar throughout all the change that moving to a new home brings. The staff is very friendly and take wonderful care of my children!

I am fairly new to this facility, but I can say that it is a truly amazing place for children. My child has learned so much in a little amount of time. The staff is friendly, dependable, and highly educated when it comes to my child's needs and learning style. The teachers are passionate about helping the children succeed and learn. My child is currently ahead of where she is expected to be socially and developmentally. The curriculum here is one of the best I have seen. Not only do the children develop and learn through play, they also learn through doing projects. This facility gives children endless learning opportunities. I highly recommend The Learning Experience to anyone and everyone with children. Your child deserves only the best when it comes to learning and developing and this facility will provide just that!

Two of my children have been going here for a year now. Our family and 2 children love it there and are very satisfied with their loving staff and the amazing curriculum. My daughter started there at 4 months old and has been communicating with sign language she learned from her loving teacher within a few months. All the Staff is very caring,loving and nurturing. My daughter is always welcomed with a big hug every morning which makes me feel very confident going to work leaving her,knowing shes going to get the snuggles she wants and the education she needs. I can go on and on about how much i love this place and the women who work there.
