Curriculum that develops the whole child

Our L.E.A.P.® (Learning Experience Academic Program) Curriculum uses fun, hands-on activities throughout early education to help children develop intellectually, socially and cognitively. Or as we say, to learn, play and grow.

Characters that bring learning to life

From the moment you walk inside, TLE Hells Kitchen feels like home. Staff members feel like family and foster an environment of care, comfort and security. The teachers’ responsiveness to my goals for my daughter and their attentiveness to her needs, has helped my 3 year old thrive both academically and social emotionally. The curriculum does a great job of providing multiple learning experiences throughout the day and it helps that she has great teachers, Ms. Anwar and Ms.Celine, to implement it. My daughter really enjoys learning Spanish and playing soccer, as they provide even more enrichment opportunities throughout the day. A great big thank you to Ms. Jarranda and Mr. Mark for all that they are doing for my daughter, as well as all of the children at TLE Hells Kitchen.
