I absolutely love this school for my 3 year old! They prepare them for preschool and she’s even learning how to write. They have themes and make it so fun to learn, share, be kind, and dance! One of my favorite things is when they taught about “emotions” my daughter now can say when she’s sad or happy because of this. I love hearing my daughter express her own feelings. It’s so amazing to see my daughters growth from when I first brought her here. I highly recommend this school because the programs they have is so great to learn from and our littles deserve the best!

My child has been at TLE Rhodes Ranch for about 7 months and it was the best decision for child care in Spring Valley. The flexibility provided with their extended hours, fun and challenging curriculum, and amazing staff has made moving cross country so much easier for my toddler and I. She constantly raves about her friends and teachers! The director and her assistant set the stage for the children to not only learn, but also to have positive memorable experiences. Highly recommend them, you can’t beat the price and the team truly cares for the children.
