After many searches and tours, we fell in love with The Learning Experience in Fishhawk. The staff there is amazing. From day one, they have treated him as if he were there own. We wouldn't want Owen anywhere else!

At a previous preschool, my son would cry every day and did not want to go to school. Since starting TLE at Fishhawk he has not cried - EVER! - unless I tell him that its not a school day! This makes my heart so happy that he LOVES going to school here! Worth every penny!

My daughter has attended TLE Fishhawk for a year now and she has made many great advancements. She has adored everyone of her teachers and loves the changing curriculum. I'm glad that I chose TLE over the many other schools in the area!! Thank you to all the staff.

Amazing that just in a month my son started talking in sentences and was completely potty trained!!! Great things are still happening to my one and only. Special thanks to his loving teachers , Ashley, Mary and his all time favorite now Ms Kelly. I just feel a genuine concern whenever I leave my son in this school.

The owners are amazing and very involved. On property everyday. Ruby is an an amazing woman to work with. She is wealth of information and always willing to help in any way possible. The teachers are awesome to no end. They are caring, kind, understanding and want to be with our babies. It's wonderful. The facility is very clean and all state of the art. The safety is impeccable. Love it. Take a tour today, you won't be sorry you did. Thanks

Our daughter has attended TLE Fishhawk since she was 3 months old and we couldn't be more pleased with how much she has grown while in their care. The teachers and staff are amazing! This week she is transitioning to the toddler room and the teachers and staff are making sure that it is a smooth transition for both parents and child. This center is so caring and attentive to our daughter, making it a little easier to drop her off knowing she is in good hands.

We absolutely love The Learning Experience in FishHawk/Lithia. After two failed attempts at other local (and highly recommended) childcare places, we finally found the perfect fit for our daughter! When she entered TLE, she was shy and afraid of being left due to bad experiences at other facilities. Now, she loves going so much that she asked to go every single day instead of just the three days a week that we had her enrolled. The teachers are caring, dedicated, and love the kids as if they were their own. Greg (the owner) and Ruby (the director) are amazing and it is obvious that they love what they do. It is also a bonus that one of the two is always around if you have a question and each is willing to lend an ear to help with any issue. The facility is clean and safe which makes us so comfortable with the many germs and hazards daycare can pose. We wouldn't place our daughter at any other child care center!

We moved from San Diego, CA to Fish Hawk, FL in August. When I was trying to understand the area and select a day care for our two year old son, I was overwhelmed trying to figure out what facilities were available and where everything was located. I was referred to TLE by a friend, and called Ruby who was incredibly helpful. She was able to accommodate my exact appointment request and after seeing the facility, we signed Ace right up! He has been developing and growing since attending, especially his speech. He comes home every day clean (and for a 2 year old, that says a lot to his care!) and happy. We are so glad Ace attends school at TLE!

From the moment I walked in the door I felt this was the place for my daughter. Facility is immaculently kept and the staff is super friendly. They welcome each child by name when arriving and leaving and always tell me to have a wonderful day. My daughters teachers are very sweet and helped her transition on her first day. I am thrilled with my experience thus far.

We came to TLE exactly one year ago. We came from another local child care facility. We have been thrilled with the teachers, staff and most importantly the communication we receive from our TLE. Our son has made friends and has developed relationships with his teachers which is something we were missing at his former school. We love the curriculum at TLE and especially love that our little one enjoys going to school now. We have never questioned our decision to join the TLE family and are looking forward to what VPK here will teach us all!

I work a lot of hours as does my husband and they are open to fit those needs. They are always professional. The place is full of color and people smiling. It took isaac a little time to adjust but he seems very happy and is talking more than ever. I love this place!
