Hello TLE Family! I just wanted to share an update about Olivia. We just had our first parent/teacher conference with Olivia's kindergarten teacher. The feedback we got was that Olivia is by far the most advanced student in her class. She far exceeds her peers in reading and language skills, as well as in interpersonal skills and relationship building. She is off the charts on a standardized test they use. The teacher said we must work with her a lot at home. We kindly corrected the teacher and said, no. (I mean, of course, we do) but the reality is this is mostly because of TLE. Thank you so much for your commitment to excellence. Olivia is amazing at school. She will probably be recommended for GT and honors classes as soon as they are available. We made the right choice in TLE.

TLE has been amazing for us! My husband and I had our first child in October and met with a few different places when trying to figure out where we'd send him when I went back to work. The TLE Buda location is close to our home & the staff is amazing. They were able to give us an after hours tour, due to COVID restrictions, and I enjoyed seeing first-hand how our son could grow, learn and thrive from infant to preschool! They are great with communication & always meet my millionth+ question with a smile & positivity! I appreciate how they encourage parent interaction and love on my son - he is all smiles each day when he sees his teachers! Ms. Deborah, Brittney & Kayla are so wonderful - I couldn't ask for more attentive & positive teachers! I also feel completely at ease with the precautions they've taken during COVID. They have gone above & beyond to make everyone feels safe and the children are well cared for.

We are so happy with the infant care for our son! He is happy, well cared for, and loved every day. Communication is awesome, his teacher is fantastic, and the owners are amazing. We couldn't be happier and feel more comfortable leaving him there during the week.

After having a bad experience at another daycare in our area, I was appreciative and lacked trust, but TLE Buda has restored my trust. They are very kind, organized and the communication is fantastic! My son's attitude has changed tremendously just within the two weeks he has been enrolled. He asks if he can go back everyday and has already learned about weather and mixing colors. They give daily feedback on what transpired during the day. We love TLE and blessed to be part of the family. I just wish I would have enrolled my son sooner.

When I first started looking into daycare facilities I was really concerned about how any place could take care of my son as well as I could especially with his acid reflux issues- he tends to need a little extra attention and help with his sleeping. I'm really glad we made this choice. Our son thrives at this daycare even though he is only an infant. The entire staff in the infant room are excellent! I feel like we get great daily feedback on what has happened during the day and my son is always happy when I see him no matter what time of day I drop in. I am always welcomed with a warm greeting when I walk in the door and the staff truly cares about us like a family. We love it here!

We chose TLE Buda because they are so scholastic based. Other pre-schools I've had my daughter in have basically been a babysitting facility. I love how much fun my daughter is having and that she's so excited to go to school everyday. We love our TLE Buda family!

Our little one really seems to enjoy his time at school with you.
