The staff made my first day and all the days to follow such a wonderful experience. Two and a half years later and my second child attending also I adore the entire TLE team and so do my kids.

When the time came to choose a daycare for our baby, after a exhaustive research process it was obvious "The Learning Tree", was by far the number one option. We are just so lucky they had an opening. From the very first day they have exceeded our expectations and there is no doubt we made the right choice with whom to trust our baby. We look forward to continuing to bring our child there and watching his growth and development with the help of the great people at "The Learning Experience".

We enrolled our dn in December and honestly could not be happier. The staff are all great and you can tell they love interacting with the children. Our son greets them with a smile every morning and I know he is excited to go every day.

Our first daughter, Mallory started at TLE in 2012. My husband and I both worked full-time and needed a safe place to send our daughter to, and we had no idea what to expect. We visited other daycares, but when we came to TLE, we had a very unique experience. Ms Jenn was the first to great us and what a great first impression. TLE did not feel like your typical daycare center. The infant room was inviting, clean, safe, and all babies were having interactions with the teachers and each other. Babies as young as 6 weeks were doing activities! Room by room was filled with social interactions, daily activities and teachers assisting children with the ability to grow. This was the place for us. For me, the mom, I was very hesitant to bring my new baby into someone else's hands as I just previously lost my own mother the year prior. I was very unsure how I was going to trust someone else taking care of my child. But, Ms Elaine really guided me through every step of the way; she taught me how to do things better and at times I felt she knew better than me how to take care of my own child! And as Mallory went from room to room, and now being in the Preschool program with Ms Leslie, she is the most advanced little girl I could ever imagined I could have. And TLE Farmington Hills has A LOT to do with that. More than I think they know. We welcomed our 2nd child, Liv into the world in 2014 and she too is receiving the same experience Mallory has had. I am very grateful for TLE, Ms Jenn the director, Ms Amber the manager, and every teacher who has helped both of our children develop into bright little girls that I never imagined I could have. Thank you TLE!!!

Our son is 2 and has attended TLE since he was 8 months old. My husband and I put a lot of time into finding the right care for him. We chose TLE because the infant care was second to none. Breastmilk and cloth diapers? No problem. Need to call everyday because YOU have temporary separation anxiety? No problem. Food restrictions? No problem. Asthma or other medical conditions? Got it covered. The staff is caring, nurturing, fun-loving, and competent. The facility is spotless, safe, and cheery. Daily communication is thorough. Our son learned sign language, developed social skills, and already knows most of the requirements needed for kindergarten. We truly see the staff as partners with us. Our son has truly enjoyed his time there and so have we.

Our son has attended TLE Farmington Hills for 1-year in the infant and toddler rooms. He has a very severe dairy allergy which causes us constant concern to ensure he does not come in any contact with dairy. The TLE Staff, both office & teachers, have went to great lengths to ensure our sons safety. Our allergist's nurse met with the staff and was thoroughly impressed with the genuine care the teachers had for his well-being. If your child has a food allergy, you can trust the TLE Staff will do everything possible to protect your child. In addition, we have been impressed with the TLE Staff teaching our son sign language and the nurturing environment provided. If you are looking for dedicated teachers and a staff that genuinely cares about children, look no further than TLE Farmington Hills.

The two that have graduated on to elementary school were reading before starting Kindergarten and have been ahead of their classes in school. Thanks TLE, caring teachers and of course the amazing Mrs. Jen!

Our daughter Madyson was at TLE from the time she was 2 months old to 5 years old. In fact she still is there everyday for her kindergarten bus stop. We have found that every teacher and helper have been the most loving and caring individuals. There commitment to providing educational development as well as social development is world class. The administration and management staff are responsible, attentive, and warm. Everyday that we dropped off our princess it was as if we were leaving her with family! We would highly recommend TLE of Farmington Hills to anyone looking for the BEST in child care!

What sets TLE apart from other centers is their staff. The TLE teachers and staff are smart, warm, and friendly. They have an excellent curriculum, but more importantly, they have a nurturing environment, where your child is loved. We looked at many daycare centers, but TLE set themselves apart from the first time we entered the building. Our kids have thrived in this environment. We have been part of this great community of people for more than 4 years, and we feel lucky to have found such a great place for our kids.

My daughter Joslyn has been coming to TLE since she was 4 months old. As a new mom I was nervous about leaving my baby with anyone. From the first day Ms. Jen and the team have made me feel totally at ease. They always call and keep me informed if anything "unusual" happens-a perfect process for a 'worry wart' of a parent! The entire team shows Joslyn lots of love and engages her on a daily basis. Due to this she has been extremely receptive and retains everything they teach her! She can't wait to go to school every day and each night (including on the weekend), she asks if she's going to see Ms. Jen, her teachers (past and present) and her classmates the next day. (This has been going on with every class since she could talk.) She is happy, she is learning and she is developing into a loving mannerable and inquisitive little girl and we owe a great deal of that to TLE. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the TLE team in Farmington Hills, MI. Thank you and we love you guys!

We absolutely LOVE the staff, they are all very friendly and helpful. When our son started Kindergarten, he was very prepared and was able to meet the end of the year standards at the beginning of the school year. We are so happy we chose TLE for our kids. It is a safe, loving and nurturing environment and our kids love it. Thanks to the whole Farmington Hills Staff.

We looked into TLE when I was pregnant with our first child. When we first toured, we were so impressed and felt like the teachers really had a interest in the children they were caring for and were playing/interacting/teaching the children, not just sitting back letting the kids run wild. Now, our third child has just started in the infant A room, with the same awesome teachers my older two children had. It is such an amazing feeling to know my child will be so well cared for. When I pick my older two up everyday, we have to go to many rooms to say good-bye and give hugs to many different teachers. We have even moved to another city and still drive our kids to the same daycare because we do not think we could find this quality of care, or a place my children love as much, as TLE.
