We are 3 weeks in and I couldn't be happier with our choice to enroll our daughter here! I knew from the minute the director (Staci) took us on our tour that this would be a great fit for our family. Staci took so much time with us on the tour, answered most of my questions before I could event ask them and happily addressed additional questions I had. Then I met Shay, the communications coordinator, and she is just as impressive. I felt so seen, heard, and supported here before I even committed to enrolling my daughter. Staci and Shay dedicated 45 minutes to me on two separate visits when I was weighing my options and they were so understanding when I kept coming back with more questions. For comparison, I toured another highly sought after daycare in the area and they could barely give me 10 minutes of their time. My daughter loves her teacher (Ms. Leah) and we love her, too! She strives to truly understand all her kiddos and it shows - I appreciate how well she knows them so much! My daughter's first week or so was tough, as expected, and even the education coordinator (Ms. Niki) helped her adjust and feel comfortable. I couldn't say nicer things and am so happy this is where we landed! Finally, there are only 4 daycares in Lakewood Ranch that have earned the Gold Seal award from DCF and TLE is one of them!

When it came to that time when my husband and I had to decide on daycare for our 3-year old daughter and fast approaching birth of our son, we needed to find daycare that could take on both our daughter and band new infant son. While we LOVED our daughter's previous daycare, they just simply did not have an infant room, which forced us to find other care. We looked and looked in the area, but were just simply unsuccessful for various reasons- no room for one or both children, the facility was unclean, or simply the staff was rude when we went in to tour their facility. As our frustration grew throughout the process, we finally found TLE Lakewood Ranch. From the very moment we pulled into the parking lot we were very impressed. When we walked in (well, I waddled as I was 8 months pregnant at the time), we were greeted with Ms. Catie's smiling face; she showed us around the school and into each of the classrooms and playground and Make Believe Boulevard and talked about all the great things of the L.E.A.P program. We knew instantly that we wanted our children to go here. From Renee's first day on I have been very impressed with how much she has learned in just under 2 months of attending. She's already learned to write, spell and recognize the letters of her name; learning how to write different letters of the alphabet and numbers and is learning many new things with the sign language and foreign language programs too. The director Ms. Katie has been very kind and very flexible with our infant son and his illness. She is always asking about how he's doing and already making plans and working with the teachers preparing for his return back as he will need extra attention for a while. We just love how everyone throughout the entire school is concerned about him and Renee... even the teachers who are not with either one of them on a daily basis. It is very comforting knowing that I can drop off both children and they are not only safe and learning, but are very loved by everyone.

We were very happy with my son's previous preschool, except for its location. I decided to tour TLE because it is down the street from us, with no real intention to switch. I was highly impressed with the facility and staff, so we made the switch after Summer break. We could not be happier. The facility is bright, clean and colorful. The staff is amazing. We are greeted with smiles and by name every day, and I am notified of anything of importance immediately. I would highly recommend TLE in Lakewood Ranch!
