We love TLE!! My son is in 3K here and my daughter is in the infant room. We love ALL of the teachers and staff as they are all so helpful and professional, but I cannot sing the praises of Elizabeth Martinez in the infant room highly enough! We’ve worked with lots of daycare professionals over the last few years (including the great ones at TLE), but Ms. Elizabeth truly stands out. She’s so loving towards our daughter while also being a calm and professional presence in the classroom. My daughter clearly loves her and we feel extremely confident dropping her off every morning knowing she’ll be well cared for. Ms. Elizabeth’s passion for caretaking shines through every interaction we have with her. My daughter practically leaps out of our arms to go see her every morning at drop-off. That’s pretty special! Overall, the facility is immaculate and brand new. My son loves to talk about going to the "inside playground" (yes an entire playground inside in NYC!) and Make Believe Boulevard where the kids get to play dress up and pretend to be in their own little town. We are also very happy with the participation with the DOE 3K for all program! The admin staff is always so kind and helpful and really goes above and beyond to make our experience at TLE positive, meaningful and safe. We love Shelby and Kristine!!

Adrielle Turner has been an exceptional leader at TLE Upper West Side and brought much-needed structure and stability to that location after a rocky start in 2022. Extremely supportive, responsive, and knowledgeable, Adrielle has used her expertise with children and background in speech language development to provide some invaluable insights and recommend interventions for our son that have really helped him make some tremendous strides over the past few months. Adrielle is passionate about and committed to creating educational environments that are inclusive and holistic. She really sees our children and their tremendous potential. Her manner is quiet yet confident. She does the work. She has made an impact. I hope that TLE will continue to recognize Adrielle’s tremendous gifts, support her development, and offer her opportunities to grow.
