We have been part of the TLE-Fort Collins family for nearly 5 years. My husband and I often say how glad we are that we ended up at TLE because of all of the things that both of our girls have learned and the way that they have developed socially. The teachers at TLE have always made drop-off and pick-up a breeze, and the front office staff are excellent communicators and super easy to work with! I would absolutely give TLE-Fort Collins 10/10 stars for the quality of their facility, their staff, and the overall experience that our family has had with them.

We enrolled our 2 year old daughter at TLE back in August 2020. This was the first time we had to seek care for our daughter outside of our family and as you can imagine, we were anxious to do so. After communicating with several centers and not finding a place that could meet our needs, we came across TLE from a neighbor's recommendation. I sent an email on a Saturday expecting to not hear back until Monday, but to my surprise received an email that day from the owner Sara. She was very helpful and prompt with us. We were able to come in early that next week for a limited tour of the facility, one thing that we were denied from other centers due to covid. We met with Jen who was very knowledgeable and kind!! She reviewed the daily schedule with us and answered all of our questions. The center was very clean and the staff we met were all wonderful! We signed her up that day. Since day one she has loved "going to school" there and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about TLE! They also keep us up-to-date with the online app they use to show our daughter's day which is great! We get updates throughout the day on when/what she eats, her activities, nap time and even pictures of her playing/smiling. She has shown such growth there as well! She recognizes colors and letters, comes home singing new songs and using new words. I would recommend TLE for any family looking for a center for their child!

We chose The Learning Experience Fort Collins to be the daycare center for our first child because of the warm staff, the facility had everything we could think our son would need and was very clean, and all of the extra programs they have to develop the kiddos even starting in the infant classes! When dropping off your 4 month old for the first time, there are so many emotions. Jen and the rest of the TLE staff were so wonderful leading up to his first day, making sure I felt comfortable, and have been so wonderful in his first weeks there. Everyone we’ve met has been kind and knowledgeable, and they really work to communicate with you and listen to you about your child’s needs.

I love all the activities the infants and toddlers get to participate in, especially art and playing outside. All the staff members have been professional, caring, in-tune with my kid, proactive when problems arise (everything from diaper rash to correcting biting), and great at communication. My son loves going to TLE and come home happy everyday!

I NEVER worry about my kids and if they are being taken care of. The staff is like FAMILY. What my kids have learned from them is amazing! Me and my husband both work full time, and always felt guilty about leaving our kids full time with someone else, until we found the TLE. We know they are in the best, most capable hands when not with us. We are grateful for the TLE, so grateful.

So my youngest daughter was about 16 months when she went to daycare for the very FIRST time. She felt so comfortable and safe when we took her to her "new" room with her "new" teachers and friends. She didnt cry at all and has been having a blast there ever since. It has been so amazing and fun to watch her learn and blossom into her own beautiful self. She has learned so much since the short time she's been there. She knows her colors, shapes, all of her friends names and her teachers names and some sign language and much much more! Bringing her to TLE in Fort Collins was one of the BEST decisions we ever made. I love that our girls love it there, love their teachers and friends and want to go to school every morning. Thank you TLE and all the amazing teachers/admin for all you do for our sweet baby girls! Truly amazing!

We moved here from Nashville, where I was a stay at home mom. The Learning Experience was a breath of fresh air! My son was NOT interested in doing anything except be with me, in his comfort zone. My three year old does not like being tough, and everyone here was amazing in dealing with him without getting too close or touching him. I couldn’t be happier with everyone that understood and made him comfortable. After two months, he was hugging his teachers goodbye! Such an improvement of that little boy who would speak or want anyone to touch him ❤️❤️.

However, we didn't realize we should have started the daycare search earlier. We somehow got lucky, stopping in at TLE and talking to Sarah. On spot, she gave us a tour and information on enrollment and were able to offer us a spot for our son a spot! Compared to multiple daycares we had toured, I fell in love with TLE right away - it was so clean! The children looked clean and cared for. The teachers were attentive. The biggest plus was the infant rooms do not allow outside shoes inside!! My baby is now 10 months old and I have another on the way and without a doubt, he will be joining his brother here as well.

We love TLE! We started attending TLE when Riley was just 4 months old. From day 1 TLE has shown me that they truly care about my daughter. We have been going here for almost 2 years now and can honestly say that our daughter has thrived in her environment. She is always excited to go to "school" (we call it school rather than daycare) - well MOST days. She is a toddler! :) I love the fact that they do art almost every day with the kids (even in the infant room!), the fact that they teach and encourage sign language at a very young age and the fact that the facility is clean. Not to mention the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. I also love that they have Ipads in the classrooms where they give you updates throughout the day of what your child is doing and most days they even attach pictures of your child interacting (upon permission of the parents of course). My husband and I toured a total of 4 facilities in our area before we selected TLE and we have no regrets.

We believe that her attendance at TLE has had a huge impact on how smart she is. We are very happy to be involved with such a great group of people and we cannot thank them enough for taking such good care of our baby.

From the day we walked foot into The Learning Experience we knew our child would be in great hands. The teachers take a real interest in the kids and gives us a piece of mind knowing she is in the best care. She has learned sign language, she loves the flexi flamingo yoga, and her vocabulary has taken off! You feel so welcomed from day one like you are a part of the family, thank you Sara!

We had been working on sign language with her and it didn’t seem to click until her time at the center. She loved all of her friends in the infant class and was always excited to see her teachers. We loved that we were always greeted with a friendly smile from Sarah and Jodie and that the staff knew all of our names from day one! Although we are no longer at the center, we were very sad to go and cannot say enough about the people or the curriculum. We will definitely re-enroll when our daughter is preschool age.

When I found out that The Learning Experience was coming to town, I looked into it. I was so pleased with what I saw that I signed him up immediately! Hunter has been there since January and cries when he has to go home. He loves The Learning Experience. He has learned so much in such a short time. He knows his left from his right at 3 years of age! He knows what colors go together to make another color! He loves his teachers and his friends at TLE. Now I know what was missing in a daycare, it wasn't The Learning Experience!! Thank you TLE!
