TLE has been amazing for my son. He was 18 months when he started for the first time in childcare. Every teacher he has had been so helpful with his development. Ms Carson (center director) is one of his favorite people. It’s so relieving to find a place that takes such care with my son.

This is a wonderful school. I am an educator and I leave him every morning knowing that my son is in the very best hands. He is always happy when I pick him up and on the weekends he walks around with his backpack on saying "school"? The staff treats the children as if they are their own and I don't worry for a second that my son isn't being taken care of. If you are looking for a place that your child to thrive, this is the school for you!

TLE has been our lifesaver! Our 2 year old daughter was previously at another school this year and we were receiving calls and reports that she was being disruptive with tantrums that would result in her being removed from the class and sat in the nurses office until she calmed down. After the 2nd time it was suggested we have our daughter tested for sensory issues, we decided that this school was simply not the right place for her. Ms. Angie at TLE in McKinney has truly been the most amazing influence in our daughter's life in such a short period of time. We've seen our sweet girl get the attention she needs and the firmness when needed to keep her on task. She is in love with her class and teachers. We are so happy with the care and love she is receiving as well. She is talking SO much more, happy almost 100% of the time, and has learned colors, counting, and so much more. We feel so blessed to have experienced a school that realizes not all children are the same and that some need a different approach. Our daughter is certainly loved at this school and we couldn't ask for a better place for her to learn! Thank you TLE McKinney!
