Everyone at TLE made us feel like family and the academy has an incredibly safe, clean, and secure environment. Our son started in the infant group when he was 7 months old. As first time parents, we were nervous about fulltime daycare. From the first day that we dropped him off, I was so comfortable with our son being in their care. They are regularly in touch with us about his schedule and are very proactive. I can't recommend TLE Howell enough as our son flourishes and learns so much while he is there.

Our son has been at TLE since April of 2022 when he had just turned 6 months old. Leaving your baby at daycare for the first time can be overwhelming and nerve wracking and from day 1 we knew that picking TLE was the right choice. Hillary the director is great and she has an amazing team of teachers and staff. Everyone has been so welcoming. Our son loves being there are most days doesn’t want to leave and won’t leave without taking a lap around the hall to say bye to all the teachers, even the ones in the older classes who all excitedly saw bye to him. We truly believe we could not have picked a better place to send our child

My daughter has been attending the learning experience of Howell since she was 2.5 years with limited speech of 15 words and a few behavioral issues Ms. Camie was beyond phenomenal and patient with our daughter bringing her vocabulary to 20 plus words 10 sign languages and potty trained before her third birthday. Now our daughter is 5 in kindergarten doing very well and I have TLE to thank. The staff is very patient and understanding to each child's needs and with out them our daughter would not be up to par the way she is. Now we have added our 1 year old son who is also doing very well and began walking and taking steps 1 month after attending TLE gives the full family experience

My two oldest boys went to TLE, my eldest was one of the first Kindergartners to graduate from Howell TLE. We loved the school so much that when we moved out of the area I drove over an hour every morning to bring my boys back to TLE... this was while living directly across the street from an elementary school! Years later, I found myself with a third little boy on the way, and though I didn't want to return to work so soon, I immediately contacted TLE of Howell! My big boys are older now, but we still return for summer camp every year!

Aubrianna loves her teacher, Miss Courtney! She is wonderful with the children! The children are learning all aspects of early child development and are also learning good manners and social skills! Some children have come in shy and quiet and now they have come out of their shells and are very happy and talkative! I have been very satisfied with most of the teachers Aubrianna has had since she's been going to TLE. It's been a great experience for her!

My family and I had moved to Jackson 4 years ago and our two oldest kids had attended TLE in Howell and the teachers were amazing. I was expecting our third child and I already knew that the Howell TLE was our choice. The staff and teachers are wonderful, caring and loving. My daughters teachers are beyond what I have expected. Emma smiles (when awake) when she comes in the room and sees them, and to me, that is what counts.

The infant rooms and teachers at TLE in Howell are amazing! I was nervous about putting my son Jack in daycare in the beginning but I quickly saw how it was the best thing I could have done! Miss Michelle, Miss Amanda, Miss Patti and Miss Sheelagh are fantastic! They provide such a fun and loving environment for him! He is happy to go there everyday and is always happy when I pick him up! I will never forget the day I picked him up and he cried when I took him from Miss Amanda! He wanted to go right back to her and didn't want his Mommy! At first I was heartbroken, but then I was happy because he loves his teachers and I could feel totally comfortable leaving him with people he loves to be around! It is so wonderful to be able to leave my son in such good and loving hands!

Everyone on the staff from Ms. Kim, Ms. Jenny, Ms. Michelle, Ms. Sheila, and Ms. Amanda have been an essential part of our wonderful experience. We would recommend TLE to anyone seeking a compassionate, efficient, and enriching environment for their child.
