I have sent my child to The Learning Experience in Matawan for 3 years. I could not imagine sending her any where else. My child loves to go to school, and that is very important to instill a love of learning before entering elementary school. She has gained so much knowledge, I know she will be ahead of the game when she does begin Kindergarten. The staff and administration are top notch. I am deeply impressed with their academic programs, daily summer camp activities, and monthly fundraising events. This daycare/school exceeds my expectations. Therefore, I highly recommend The Learning Experience of Matawan.

My son has been going here for 3 months and we have nothing but positive things to say. First off we came from another facility that was lacking in almost every area of childcare so we were skeptical about sending our child to the same franchise. However, after sitting down with Ms. Trish & Mr. Nico, our fears quickly turned to excitement. The communication that the staff delivers via email, phone, or simple word of mouth is exceptional. The staff truly cares about the kids and the parents. They even go the extra mile letting you know if there is unusual traffic or congestion in the area so you can adjust your pickup/drop off route accordingly. The teachers are great, and they have no problem reinforcing vocabulary, potty training, and much more

My son has been at TLE Matawan for4 months. The staff is great. When there is an issue they work with you to come up with a solution. When my son first started he would cry right when my husband left him in his room. They came up with the idea to have him say goodbye to my husband at the front and have whoever is there walk him to his room. It worked. He says goodbye to everyone when we go home. He never did that at his old school. We'll be walking in the hallway and everyone says hi to him. I highly recommend TLE Matawan if you are looking for a preschool for your child.

I am thrilled to write about The Learning Experience of Matawan. I have sent my daughter there for 3 years, so I feel that I know the school very well. When I first sent my daughter to daycare at one year old, we chose one a little closer to home and that was a huge mistake. My husband and I pulled her out of the school after 6 weeks. I was disgusted with daycare and didn’t want to send my daughter to another one. However, then we found The Learning Experience of Matawan and my fears vanished. I could tell right away that The Learning Experience of Matawan was a loving and nurturing environment, and I wasn’t wrong. After my last daycare experience, I would call TLE every day to check on my daughter, and they were reassuring and kind to me. I could see the difference in my daughter compared to the other school. When I picked her up from the other school, she would cry. When I picked her up from The Learning Experience of Matawan, she was smiling and happy. One of the huge reasons is because of the staff. The staff are always bubbly, happy, kind, caring, and fun. They always greet children and parents as they enter the building. My daughter runs up to her past and present teachers for hugs. As a mother, I want my daughter to feel encouraged, nurtured, and loved, and she receives that everyday at TLE-Matawan. The administration is no exception. They are always visible and available. I have recently had surgery, and have gone out of their way to help my family and I. As someone who works in public education, I see the difference that The Learning Experience of Matawan makes with each child. They provide an excellent curriculum that facilitates growth in all educational areas. I am so impressed with all the knowledge my daugher possesses. I love the enrichment education she has received. This includes the L.E.A.P. Curriculum (Learning Experience Academic Program). My daugher has so much fun with the L.E.A.P. Interactive boards that use touch-screen technology and interactive learning games to further enhance her education. My daughter has learned sign language, phonics, foreign language, manners and etiquette, physical fitness, and philanthropy which teaches children the value of selflessness and giving. I love all the charity work they do at TLE, including working with Make-A-Wish, helping families in need, breast cancer, and more. Every month they have a charity or a philanthropy giving event. I am impressed with their enrichment kit programs that are provided extra with no additional cost. My daughter has learned music, math, science, dance, Yoga, performing arts, and physical fitness and is able to take home her kit at the end of the session. She has received kits in theater, dance, Yoga, music, and more! As someone who has a strong appreciation for the arts, I love this extra education. Once my daughter was potty trained, she was able to go into Make Believe Boulevard®, a miniature Main Street, USA. I love this interactive classroom designed to develop and expand socio-dramatic play amongst children. As an occupational therapist who works with children, working on these skills are very important to me. Also, as a pediatric OT, I love how TLE Matawan facilitates various developmental skills, such as speech, fine motor, visual perceptual, visual motor, and gross motor skills. The staff assesses these skills to ensure developmental progression. When my daughter received early intervention speech therapy, the teachers worked with the speech therapist at the daycare to increase her speech. We saw tremendous improvement with everyone in her life on the “same page” and using the techniques. As a working mom, I love that I can bring my daughter to TLE-Matawan and I know that she will be provided with a healthy lunch! I don’t have to worry about making her lunch everyday. My daughter loves the lunch that is provided at TLE-Matawan. She often will ask for seconds and thirds! I highly recommend The Learning Experience of Matawan. There is no place I would rather bring my daughter everyday. I feel truly blessed that my daughter has them in her life. Thank you.

When I first brought "D" to daycare, I was a worried wreck! I had good reason, I was leaving my precious girl with people I didn't know! However, TLE Matawan was very patient with me. I would call daily, and they were always polite and told me how wonderful "D" was doing. I learned that TLE Matawan has a very loving and nurturing environment, which is just what I wanted for my daughter. I love the curriculum, including all the extras like LEAP, sign language, philanthropy, and Yippie for Yoga. She loves going to school everyday and doesn't want to go home! That love for school and education is being fostered everyday at TLE Matawan. I am very grateful for all they do for my daughter. There is no daycare better than TLE Matawan!

I have had my boys in other day cares including a mom and pop smaller day care and a national chain and i would pick this TLE over any of them hands down. Thank you guys for doing a great job with all the kids in your care!!!

I love our TLE! We have been apart of the TLE family for almost 3 years and every year this school gets better! The teaching staff is excellent and my boys have grown dramatically over the course of our time with TLE.. I love that both my boys are getting quality education with loving support and sometimes they don't want to leave at the end of the day. The administration is also excellent and very involved with the children and parents. I am comforted in the fact that I can trust them to properly take care of my children. Thank you to Ms Sital and all of her staff and teachers!!!
