My husband and I are first time parents and we were very anxious about enrolling our daughter at daycare after parental leave ended. We are beyond happy that we found TLE at Manasquan. The teachers are wonderful and caring and my daughter seems to be thriving. I love getting picture updates throughout the day, and feel great knowing that I can continue working and my daughter will be taken care of at the same time. She’s happy to be dropped off and happy to be picked up, it’s a win-win! I would recommend this daycare to anyone.

She exhibited everything a parent could wish for in a teacher. Kindness, patience, creativity, and passion. I was blown away with how well my son can read at such a young age. I will always recommend TLE Manasquan to everyone!

The director Elaine and owner Krystyn are both such pleasures to work with. I couldn’t imagine my girls going anywhere else. I just cannot recommend this center enough!

I know its not an easy job and has been tough this past year, but they helped keep us involved as much as possible. My sons education is well above the standard and secretly glad we got waitlisted for public preschool so he can continue. We will also be sending our youngest there in the coming months. Thank you to Krystyn and all the teachers for making us always feel like family here.

After touring various locations, The Learning Experience in Manasquan was the best preschool option for both my children. I was confident in their handling of the ever changing covid regulations and value the importance they put on health and safety. The teachers are caring, engaging, and my kids LOVE going to school. My oldest is off to kindergarten now and I know he is prepared academically and socially. My youngest was home with me this summer but is looking forward to returning to her preschool class and seeing her teachers and friends again!

Our family is so happy and grateful to the entire TLE Manasquan team! Our daughter started toddler daycare about five months ago. Being first time parents and having experienced a crazy pandemic year, placing her in daycare was a tough decision. However, not only did TLE meet our expectations, but they exceeded them! From welcoming our daughter as if she had been part of the family for years, to providing a very safe and clean environment… and everything in between. Since she’s attended, her social skills, vocabulary, personality, and intelligence have expanded astronomically! And I know we have everyone here to thank for that. She loves her teachers and all her friends and we couldn’t be happier with this experience overall! Thank you so much to everyone, especially the teachers who love on her all day the way we would at home.

TLE Manasquan is our first formal daycare experience after having family and friends watch our son until he was a little older than a year. I cannot say enough great things about this place. He is so excited to go to “school” every day. The teachers and staff are kind and we truly feel 100% comfortable having him spend his weekdays there. We love getting updates and pictures on the app throughout the day, it helps you understand your child’s schedule and the activities they’re doing. I will recommend TLE Manasquan to everyone who has a baby!!!

In the 3 months our son has been attending we have watched him learn so much, start talking, recognizing shapes and so much more. Every day he is so excited to go to school he waits by the door! The entire staff, especially Ms. Kayla who is one of his teachers, are absolutely amazing and take such great care of our little one. This was our first time sending him into a learning environment and it was the best decision we’ve made. Thank you all!!

We love TLE manasquan! Our son had never left family until this year, and we were worried about his transition. Everyone was so supportive of both me (and all my check ins) and my son who had a hard start. Within three drop offs, he was excited and happy to go see his friends. I am SO IMPRESSED by all of the details that go into the planning and curriculum for our 3 year old. Our son loved playing “the name game” with his classmates at the start of the program. That may seem like a minor detail but many kids leave a school day not actually getting to know names of their classmates. TLE makes sure the kids all truly feel like friends. It is the best choice and we are so happy!

What I thought would be a very hard transition for them from their other daycare was completely seamless. Krystyn, the owner, and Amy, the Director, are both so nice, super informative and easy to get in touch with. My girls also LOVE their teachers, Ms. Kaitlyn and Ms. Rosie. They made my girls feel right at home from their first day there and made everything SO much fun that the girls now ask me if they can go to school on the weekends!!! We love TLE Manasquan so much we've decided to keep our girls there even post-pandemic. We couldn't be happier with the level of care and service they provide!

Theo loves seeing his friends there and in the 6 months that he has been there, he has learned more than he ever had enrolled in a different daycare. I am so impressed with his ability to recognize letters, which is a testament to the teaching and administrative staff at the center. I couldn't be more thrilled!
