Our daughter transitioned to TLE in no time and we couldn't be happier - from day 3 she stopped looking back for us at dropoff and instead would run into her teacher's arms with a smile on her face. The teachers have been super open and transparent as has the TLE leadership - which really helps foster this sense of community. The local farmer's food program is an added bonus which we didn't expect when we first joined.

Am very happy with my experience with TLE Clinton Hill. It took a couple of weeks for our two year old to adjust, but he is very happy and engaged. So thankful to have a safe and responsible center to send our child, the social re-engagement has been awesome to watch. The daily updates and parent/teacher communication has been really helpful to make up for the fact that parents aren't able to enter the building (safety precautions). Am thankful for the caring staff and teachers!

I LOVE The Learning Experience Clinton Hill. It's the best of both worlds - it's a small locally owned business that benefits from having the support and guidance of a national structure. My first child graduated their 3s program last year and I have a little one there now. The owner is a neighborhood mom of two (her kids are both there), and she is incredible. She's communicative, hires wonderful, caring staff, and has taken cleanliness to a whole new level in response to COVID. The school has created a strong sense of community among the parents and kids. They also send lots of daily updates, provide meals, accommodate allergies, and in the older classes they accomplish a great deal of learning in a fun environment. I've had other daycare experiences in the neighborhood and this one was by far my favorite. I'm happy to chat with anyone who wants to hear more.

The Learning Experience has brought so much joy and continuity into our lives during a chaotic time. The teachers and staff are caring and smart professionals. As someone who believes that well-being and learning are completely interrelated, I know my daughter is getting the best education possible. In addition, the owner and educational director are organized, transparent, and responsive.

We currently have two children enrolled full time at TLE Clinton Hill ( 3 years + 1 year). My oldest started at about 18 months (enrolled about 18 months) and my youngest started at 6 months (enrolled about 6 months, starting as soon as they re-opened in August 2020). We have been SO happy with everything about our experience at TLE. As a family we have experienced 4 different age level classrooms and therefore had a number of different teachers and have loved each one. We have honestly loved every one. The teachers are all so engaged and loving and I really trust my kids are happy and in good hands each day. My oldest talks constantly about her teachers and my youngest will jump out of our arms each morning to see her teacher. They offer so many activities to keep the kids engaged, learning and having fun — lots of reading and singing, pretend play, arts and crafts, science activities as they get older. Even my little one does multiple art projects a week in the infant room. The classrooms are big, bright, and clean. Plus there are a few additional spaces in the school (indoor playground) and another big play room that the kids all visit weekly. The kids also go outside daily if weather allows. Pre-covid they all went to the playground but now they go for neighborhood walks. I also really appreciate the communication from the teachers and the school administrators. The teachers post photos and notes all day long and are always open to questions and communication from parents. Reena (Owner) and Danyele (Educational Director) communicate often via email and also frequently set up zoom calls to be able to answer parents questions or allow the space for teachers and parents to connect. They have been so transparent and communicative all year as we navigate Covid together. Health and Safety is also a top priority at the school. Teachers are all in masks, there is no cross over between classrooms so kids interact with the same small group of kids and teachers everyday, and there are a number of other practices in place (indoor only shoes, drop off and pick up at the door, temp checks, lots of cleaning and hand washing, rotation of shared spaces like the indoor playground to allow time to clean and sanitize, etc. Overall we have been so happy with our experience at the school and are grateful for the community its connected us to.
