Our daughter has been attending The Learning Experience since she was 4 months old. Her first teacher was Miss Connie and she made us feel so comfortable leaving our first baby in her care. She always made sure we knew what was going on in the classroom and has helped us through many transitions that come with a baby’s first year! All of the staff treats our baby girl like her own and she absolutely loves going to school every day!

We look forward to coming to school everyday. If there are changes , as with any job. Sandra (director) tells us in person or by letter ASAP. My child is learning so much with Ms. Keke and the preschool program. I know he will be ready for kindergarten.

From the director greeting me at the door, checking my ID and my families files and walking me to the classroom, I felt that they were in the most secure environment possible. Thanks.

I've noticed a huge improvement in his school focus. He loves to trace, call out shapes, colors and call out different subjects and activities that he's learned. Every day he tells me he had a good day. I only wish a TLE was around when my older kids were this age. Thank you TLE!

We love everything about the Learning Experience on San Jose Blvd. We have two children ages 1 and 3 attending and they both love going to school. Our oldest son loves his teacher Mrs. Tina. She takes the time to get to know the children on a personal level and make them feel comfortable and confident. This is our youngest son’s first experience with day care and it has been a easy transition. He receives a lot of individual attention and I truly feel like his teacher Ms. Wynette loves him. Administration has also gone above and beyond to make our first experience wonderful. Mrs. Sheryl and Mrs. Meg have answered every question with a smile. My son loves to run into the office and tell Mrs. Sheryl about his day. I know that I made the right decision when I switched to this school. We have had an amazing experience.

The Learning Experience (TLE) is a fabulous family oriented environment that supports and challenges each child’s development appropriately. We have two attending and both “love school” which is always a plus. Most impressive is the unique and varied curriculum that includes the LEAP (interactive) program, computer access in the classroom, Mandarin Chinese, sign language, and even yoga as well as coordinated weekly teaching plans. The entire staff works together efficiently and effectively as a team with us (parents) to enhance, enrich, and encourage our children’s development process. Both of our children enjoy learning through play using basics such as circle time, arts and crafts, playground, music, exercise time to “Make Believe Boulevard” time. TLE pays attention to intellectual, social, and physical aspects our children’s growth. Mrs. Sheryl (Center Director), Ms. Meg (Business Manager), Mrs. Kruti (Prepper’s Teacher), and Ms. Tina (Prepper’s Teacher) are like having an extended family in a single location just for our children. It can honestly be said TLE has exceeded our expectations and our little ones will be comfortable transitioning to kindergarten when it is time.

Since Marlie started at TLE, we have had nothing short or an incredible experience. The staff's focus on education and creating a nurturing environment has been a perfert fit for Marlie. One experience in particular will stick with me forever. Marlie was in a transition period between potty training and diapers. She was really struggling with going number 2 in the potty. When she finally did, the director of the center, Miss Cheryl, made a point to bring Marlie into her ofice and call me at work to tell me all about her accomplishment. Miss Cheryl took a picture of Marlie calling me and printed it out as a keepsake which is something I will always treasure. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and greatly appreciate the personal attention and touch the staff given to my little girl. Thank you so much Miss Kruti, Miss Tina and Miss Cheryl for everything you do!

TLE (San Jose Blvd. Jacksonville, FL) HAPPY MOTHER OF 2 If you have not had the pleasure to even take a tour at The Learning Experience on San Jose Blvd, you can’t even begin to know what your child (children) are missing! This children’s daycare offers an amazing faculty and phenomenal curriculum. Both of my children love “going to school” here. We have attended since the first day its doors opened and plan to be a part of TLE Family until kindergarten! My son learned not only to recognize but to spell his name confidently in less than 3 months (prior to VPK), and my daughter (2 yrs. younger) has surpassed her brother’s entrance level skills/knowledge. They both came home teaching me Mandarin Chinese words and yoga immediately after enrollment! As a nurse, I understand the importance of age-appropriate developmental activities, use of play, and early social interactions create healthy, happy children. These teachers not only appreciate this understanding but monitor and encourage each child’s development level. My children’s confidence, understanding, and abilities now assure me that they will be ready for the transition into the school education experience. As if that’s not enough, the same values and beliefs taught at home are encouraged at TLE including good manners, expressing feelings appropriately, and philanthropy….just to name a few. This is the best decision and investment for my children’s future school beginnings!

My son is 20 months old and was recently diagnosed with Autism. While waiting for the evaluation and the results we decided to put him in TLE to have him socialize with other children in an attempt to get him to open up. 2 weeks at TLE and he became a completely different child. He started giving more eye contact, making more sounds, and using signs they had taught him in class to communicate. He was excited to go to school in the morning and couldn't wait to get into his classroom to see his friends. This place is incredible and probably the best decision I have ever made.
