Our little one, Kensleigh, started attending TLE (Southside) 1 month ago. We (her family) immediately started to notice positive changes in her communication skills. She is happy to go to school each day. Her teachers (Ms. Jasmine and Ms. Norma) are so attentive to Kensleigh's social, emotional and physical needs. Without fail, Jasmine gives her a warm morning greeting each day. It is also notable that Kensleigh blows Norma a goodbye kiss at the end of each day. That tells me that Kensleigh feels love from her and trust her. We have been concerned about Kensleigh adjusting to the point where she is consistently able to be dropped off without trauma. Well, this morning, Jasmine instructed Kensleigh to wave and say goodbye to me with a smile! I felt SO much better about leaving her today. I can go on and on about how TLE's staff has made out little one's daycare and learning experience so much better. Especially in the area of a structured daily routine. However, it would be quite a long narrative because everyone from the front office staff to the in-classroom instructors have made this transition from 1 daycare to another a much more pleasant experience than what we could have ever expected. Thank you all (Annsley, Madison, Patricia, Jasmine, and Norma) for the dedication you have to developing Kensleigh and all of the children!

My daughter has been at TLE for over 2 years now and she loves it. She loves coming in each day and gives her teachers hugs. Everyone knows her by name and says hi. We have been very impressed with what she has learned. She learned her colors, shapes, animal sounds etc at a very young age. At 2 and a half she can already sing the whole alphabet and count to about 15. She loved the yoga program and comes home and practices yoga now all the time. TLE has also been very accommodating with her special diet as well. We love it here!

We are so happy with TLE. We previously had our son in another well-known daycare in the area as an infant. We pulled him out of that facility when he was 9 months old moving him to TLE and it was the best decision we have made for him. He has developed at an astronomical pace since we moved him, both physically and mentally. We were so concerned because he was behind on many developmental milestones when we brought him to TLE. Within a couple of months he was walking and talking just like the other kids in his class, and we attribute this change 100% to the care he receives. He loves his school and we love it too.

My daughter has been attending TLE since she was 3 months old and she is now in the Twaddlers classroom. There was a time when we considered moving her due to cost of care, however, we are so glad that we chose to stay! Yes, the cost is a little more than other care facilities, but the level of interaction and care given is unprecedented. We love her current teachers, Ms. Julie and Ms. Andrea and felt that they have really contributed to her growth and speech development. My daughter is excited every time she is dropped off and has grown very accustomed to the curriculum and routine which is both diverse and well-integrated. As a teacher, I have summers off. I appreciate that the owner is willing to work with my summer schedule to accommodate my needs during that time (not all care facilities are as flexible!) Overall, we are very happy with our experience at the facility and would highly recommend TLE to anyone considering a child care option.

She loves her teachers and looks forward to playing with them as well as her friends each day. Knowing that I can drop by to observe at any time on their security cameras as without disturbing her class as well as receiving a detailed written report of her activities every single day gives me peace of mind.

They take great care of my daughter, she is almost 14 months now and has been there since she was 10 weeks old. They are very hands-on with their learning and help me navigate through parenting situations. As a new parent, I know I can count on them. Grace (the owner) really takes pride on having a great facility and follows every policy there is. She has been available when needed for discussions and advice, and addresses situations promptly. I know my daughter is in great hands and I will definitely recommend the Southside TLE to all the families out there!

We came to this center pretty quickly after pulling our children from another center and I am so pleased with our decision to move them to this center. We started in the older infant room and have progressed through numerous rooms and each room has an amazing teacher. I love the extra activities that they offer (yoga, soccer, etc) and my children love going to "school". The office staff are easy to work with and super friendly. They greet you as you enter and as you leave. Great learning environment with lots and lots of activities for the children.
