My daughter is 20 months old. She’s been at this wonderful establishment since she was 2 months old. The other night I overheard her counting to 10. She loves to name the animals, “read books,” and sing her alphabet. This lady is a Proud Mama!

She makes it fun for the kids and customizes the lessons to each child's learning style. I'm grateful to TLE Old St. Augustine and Ms. Kia for taking such great care of my little guy. I know he'll be well prepared for VPK and Kindergarten with their support.

So my daughter started TLE in August 2019. It is just 6 months and I am amazed to see her growth. She now loves reading and she makes me sit with her to read everyday which was not the case before starting TLE. We tried reading at night before as well but there was no regularity. She recognizes all the alphabets and is also writing most of them effortlessly. She enjoys going to her class everyday ever since Miss Alexis Williams has come in. Her teacher is doing a great job. Not only with studies, she knows lot of other things as well..like safety wise what should be done and what not to be done. I am really happy with her new teacher.

I have been in the childcare/preschool industry for close to 10 years now. Never in my 10 years have I loved what I do, more than I do now! My daughter NEVER went to any of the schools I previously worked at. Her first day at The Learning Experience at Old St. Augustine, was like you couldn’t believe! Mrs. Denisee and Ms. Virginia took her in with open arms, and it was like she had ALWAYS been going to school there! Gracelyn LOVES going to school, and each morning she runs to Mrs. Denisee with the biggest smile and laugh ever! Being able to work where my daughter goes to school and feel comfortable with her being there is the greatest joy any parent could have! I get a behind the scenes look on how the center performs and I can say that I have found my forever home! Not only is the management team very involved, the OWNERS are very much involved as well! I’m so happy to be apart of an amazing company, with such awesome teachers, and an even better curriculum! I love The Learning Experience and I recommend it to any parent and anyone wanting a job in the childcare/preschool industry!!

Vivian is caring, loving, funny, and most of all she is teaching our daughter that respect is necessary and never optional. Since my husband and I both work; the time we have with our daughter is limited. We couldn't have asked for a better woman to guide our daughter through these very important little people years. Thank you to the leadership team for valuing Vivian and giving us an opportunity to work so closely with her.

All before turning two! I am so impressed with the staff, who are committed to making everyday educational and fun. If you want your child to be a step ahead of the rest before even entering preschool this is the daycare for you. I wouldn't even call it daycare...it is truly an early education program and I highly recommend it.

My granddaughter currently attends this school and has learned so much in such a short amount of time. Her vocabulary has grown, she is socializing well with other kids and looks forward to going back to school each day. The teachers are very knowledgeable and patient with her. The location is very clean and secure. She comes home talking about new activities, songs and projects that she has learned to do. I'm very pleased with her progress and recommend this establishment to anyone with a young child.

When I came to visit the Learning Experience, I was very nervous. I didn't know what to expect about leaving my child for the first time. I had gone to a few other places first and TLE was the last place I visited. I wished it had a been my first, because after seeing this facility, I felt like I had wasted hours of my life going anywhere else! I love the staff, who are very helpful, informative, and always excited to see my child everyday. They work so hard to make sure the kids are learning and experiencing new things. This summer was so much fun too. The staff took on Water Play, twice a week, for the kids. I commend them for their dedication to this program. My daughter comes home every day having learned something new. She knew her ABC's, some sign language, many songs in full and how to count to ten before turning 2. I always feel confident that my child is in good hands. There is no other place where I would want my child to be.

I absolutely love this place! I was very nervous leaving my daughter as I had never left her with anyone before. I went in for my initial meeting and fell in love the minute I walked in. The staff was very friendly, the place was spotless clean, I watched teachers interact with the children and learned what my child would be learning. She has now been there for almost 5 months and she has excelled academically and socially. I love that I get a sheet showing me what she did during the day, what she ate and any other information I may need to know. I definitely recommend for other parents to come check it out, I promise you will love them too.
