If you're looking for a safe, clean, reliable preschool for your child look no further. I had so much anxiety around picking a daycare as I just moved to arizona and didn't know many people and wasn't familiar with the area. I was recommended the Gilbert Learning Experience and I'm so happy I listened. It's a breath of fresh air to know that the staff not only cares about my child, but also makes sure to make a special connection with the parents. Thank you The Learning Experience for making sure I feel secure in my child's safety and well being. The owner Neeta is so sweet and engaging as well as the director and assistant director Chandler and Mikayla. You guys are the best!

My little one started last month at this location and I couldn't be happier with my decision! ALL the staff are very attentive to how she is doing and ensuring that all of her needs are being met. You can tell that everyone who is here truly does enjoy being here (both students and employees). We are always greeted when we come in the mornings and the teachers do a good job letting us know how my little ones day was. My favorite part is the app. It notifies me of my child's day through pictures and notifications (diaper changes, food she is eating, napping, and all the curriculum she is learning). It makes me feel happy and safe knowing my little one is in good hands and I get the reassurance from their app highly recommend!

Communication is super consistent as well as having the app to track and see our kiddos when they have snack time, water day you name it they take the best photos and track you lil ones progress day to day. I can suggest no other daycare but TLE, my son would cry because he didn’t want to leave. they keep our kids constantly active and learning basic skills, colors, arts and crafts, math but he’s actually absorbing it and I couldn’t be more thankful and proud to say my child goes to TLE

We have been at TLE Gilbert-Higley for a year now and are very happy with our decision. We started our daycare journey at another local facility and were not happy with the care our children were receiving. At TLE, we never have to worry about our children being cared for or their needs being met. The staff are all welcoming and greet the children by name. Center Management communicates with families in a timely and appropriate manner. Our daughter started in the infant room at 12 weeks and is now transitioned to the toddler room; the transition for her was seamless. Our son is in the Pre-K room currently and we have seen tremendous growth in social skills. He absolutely loves his teachers and is always excited to tell us all the details of his day.

I went on a tour and just feel in love. Jen who gave me a tour was so kind and friendly and the kids lit up to see her. The infant and toddler teachers we’ve had have all been amazing. My son literally jumps out of my arms to go to them in the morning. It’s so nice to have the peace of mind while I work. They were recommended to me and I will continue to recommend them to anyone looking for child care.

My son and I are vegetarian and he has some other dietary restrictions so I was nervous about meal times but they have gone above and beyond to not only assure me that he won’t get those certain foods but to diligently update me on the TLE parent app every time he eats (how much, & what he ate). Can’t say enough great things about this place!

One of the best day care centre around in the Valley. I have tried several centres for my toddler but he was never happy while dropping or picking. Fell sick frequently and was behaved quite fussy. However the Learning Experience turned the tables and made day care experince for my toddler easy breeze. He was obviously relunctant to go to day care initially because of his previous experience but after a week or so my baby actually showed excitement while going to school. I give all the credit to the friendly teachers and very harmonious atmosphere in the Centre. The staff is very prompt in responding in all your questions and treating your kids with lot of patience. I strongly recommend this Centre of Learning Experience!!

this place has been heaven on earth for my 5 year old. first off miss Ashley I'd like to give you the biggest thank you in the world for taking the time to actually teach my child and understand where she is coming from. my child has autism and every school we have been to has been not only neglectful of that aspect, but not kind of caring and miss Ashley has been both. my child also loves both of her directors miss Chandlar and miss neeta let's be real I love them too!! they're so kind and it's just a better atmosphere for my kid. there have been so many traumatic experiences for my child with her other schools so it's an amazing feeling knowing that in a few short months when she starts kindergarten not only will she be incredibly prepared but that her last experience with a Pre-K early education was an amazing one. I would also like to thank miss Casey as she was put in my childs class and is absolutely amazing with my child thank you all you truly have no idea how you've turned my child's life around.

We absolutely love TLE! All of the staff loved on our son like he was their own from the first day. I had great communication with their director and was able to check in on his activities through out the day with pictures included on the app. I could tell he was learning a ton when he would come home and be able to write new letters, recognize shapes and understand concepts he was learning about. We were so impressed with all the themes TLE implemented each week for school. Very well rounded. Whether you are looking for a place to send your child for a summer program or wanting to get a taste of what school will be like for your little, TLE is your place!

Both my kids have been attending The Learning Experience- Higley location and all I can say is this location has been a second home to my children for about 10 months now. We were initially very frustrated with the previous management but as soon as the new owner Ms. Neeta took over within a week we saw positive changes in the center. We have noticed that Ms. Neeta has hired very competent, kind and compassionate teachers and have changed her management too! The new management is very kind and friendly. When we moved into Gilbert my wife and I were extremely worried about childcare and we are so happy that we chose The Learning Experience-Higley location. Folks with kids, if you’re looking for a childcare center that’ll treat you and your child like their own family, check The Learning Experience!

My little man goes here, and I can't say enough good things about this place! I love seeing the smile on his face every day when I pick him up and he never wants to go home. He has been at this center for quite some time and has recently moved up to the Preschool room with Ms. Megan. He comes home with amazing artwork everyday and tells me all about the different things he learns about! Right now they are learning about the planets and he comes home with a new fact everyday. It is truly amazing to see the progress he has made in the time he has been there! Prior to the Preschool room he was in their two's room with Ms Ari and Ms Vanessa who partnered with me to help potty train him and I couldn't have been more appreciative! They were so patient and made that process a group effort so he was successful going into the "big kid" classroom. The staff and employees here truly care about the well being of my child and I couldn't ask for anything better for him. Highly recommend all parents to check this place out for their kids! You'll be happy you chose this facility as their second home.

Could not have made a better decision! We toured several other programs around the area and TLE a clear best in class experience. We are new parents with an infant and after touring a few centers around the area, we could not imagine trusting anyone else with the care and development of our child. We did hold off on this for a few months to make sure that we are providing a fair and honest review for other parents struggling with the hard decision of letting someone else help care for and develop their kids. The entire staff are incredibly warm, welcoming, and engaged literally everyday at check-in and check-out. BIG shout out to Neeta the Owner, Chandlar the Director and Ella the Assistant Director for assembling such an amazing team and culture! Finally, a humble thank you to Miss Brittany, Miss Christina, Miss Mikayla, Miss Casey, and Miss Eryn for continuing to add so much energy and love into our children's experiences!

Although reluctant at first Ms Laurie, Ms Katie, Ms Jennifer, Tia and the entire TLE team walked him through a very tough time here in Arizona. He put his jacket on Saturday night and when I asked him where are you going he said to school. he goes into class without hesitation now, so happy we found you!

Wow! What a great first day my son had at Preschool! I toured quite a few schools and found The Learning Experience at Gilbert-Higley to be the best! They are taking extra precautions during this time! They are having the children wash hands frequently, not allowing parents past the vestibule, and only offering limited tours after hours. Many centers do not have these precautions in place at this time. This was a real concern for me. My son had so much fun at Preschool and told me about all the fun activities he did and the new friends he made at The Learning Experience. This is going to be a great fit for our family!
