Never thought that I would find a school that my children would fit in. I am very happy to hear about their day when the come home and what shapes, colors, numbers, and new words they have learned that day. They have learned so much since they have started their first day! - QMC -

Both of my girls have gone here for the last three years. My oldest graduated two years ago and my youngest recently graduated (what a sweet graduation ceremony!) We will be sad once Summer Camp ends and Kindergarten starts in the fall. Amaya is 100% ready for Kindergarten due to the curriculum, even at her a younger-age entry into Kindergarten. We love the staff in Cromwell!

My son has been attending the center for almost a year now. He's had amazing teachers within the two classes he's been in. They over communicate with me on a daily basis, provide him with the love and attention he needs, and treat him like he's there own. I feel very comfortable with the center and I know if anything comes up, they call me right away. I cannot rave enough about TLE in Cromwell, CT. The owner Shatal is amazing. She is always there when I pick up ( which you do not find with many owners) and any questions I have, she always answer. I looked many centers within the area and this one stuck out the most. Anyone looking for a center in the area should check this out!! Thank you TLE for taking care of my son!. We cannot thank you enough!!!!

My three year old son currently attends TLE in Cromwell and my older son is a TLE graduate (he is 8 now), so we have essentially been at the center everyday for over 5 years. I am so grateful for the tremendous care TLE and their wonderful staff provides. It's a clean, inviting, and cheerful atmosphere, but more importantly, the staff is caring and attentive. They have always treated my children as their own. The center provides a fantastic curriculum. The kids not only learn the basics, but are exposed to things like sign language, yoga, sensory based activities, art, music, etc. My son loves being there and I know he's being given lots of love, attention, opportunities for play, and academic enrichment. The teachers and managers have always been very communicative and really get to know each child. Even teachers from other classrooms know all the kids- it's a friendly place. I highly recommend this center. It is definitely on the higher end in terms of price, but it is well worth it!
