TLE Newtown is a wonderful school that focuses on their students’ safety, curriculum, happiness and transparency with parents. We were forced to make a switch in schools during the height of COVID because ours shutdown for a few months and the saying “things happen for a reason” stands true. I wish we started at TLE from day 1 with our two boys. I have seen such a difference in our 4 year old’s learning, manners and interests since we started in July 2020 as well as our almost 2 year old’s learning and development. Both are very happy there and we were welcomed warmly by the owner and administration. -- Lisa N.

We moved to Newtown during the early months of the pandemic. I was a nervous wreck placing our daughter back into childcare during a pandemic, in a new town, and at a new facility. Indra and the entire team at TLE made this transition so much easier for me. The facility is up to date, clean and filled with wonderful educational opportunities at all age levels. From 9 months to 2.5 years, our little one changed so much. The TLE team always made sure to keep me updated through daily conversations, app notifications, and teacher conferences on her progress. Once she was old enough, we were able to utilize their snack and lunch program. Makes for less stress and hassle on this working parent. During the summer, our daughter absolutely loved the water play and activities. The list of PROs here goes on and on. I would recommend this location and team to everyone!

We were ready to send our boys to another daycare, until my husband received an email about TLE from work. We went for a visit and were sold on the enter. As an educator myself, I know the expectations put on children once they reach school age, and saw the foundations at TLE Newtown. Our boys have been loving school in their few weeks there, and already see their learning develop. Thanks, Stacey z.

Our son Findlay has had wonderful experiences in his first year at TLE. The infant teaches we're incredibly warm and caring and very knowledgeable, which was especially important to us as first time parents. Now in the toddler room, he's learning sign language and really improving his communication skills thanks to his teacher who works hard at language development, such an important skill at this age.

My children are very different and have had very different needs. From special lunches for my daughter to more hands on potty training for my son, I have been thrilled with my time at TLE. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking into daycare.

A year and a half ago we moved to Newtown, CT. 6 months until our new home was built, my wife and I traveled numerous times to the greater Danbury area in search of not only high quality "childcare" but a place that fostered strong learning skills, a clean and safe environment, and most of all a place that truly cared for our son. After looking, at what seemed like forever, we finally were able to visit TLE of Newtown. Needless to say our son has thrived at TLE Newtown and we are continuously amazed at the progress we see daily with his vocabulary and social skills to name a few. Thank you TLE!

Now he is waking up excited for school and telling me who he is going to play with and what they are going to do. I can't believe he has only been there a few weeks... he LOVES it! Thank you for making the change into a new daycare/preschool so smooth! My son can not wait for school tomorrow!

My son has been at TLE for a year now. He loves it here. The infant teachers are the best. They really do go above and beyond. When we pull into the parking lot he claps. I know he's in good hands while we are away.

My son started at TLE in Newtown last school year. He had no previous experience being in a daycare/school setting and was also going through a lot of other transitions. He struggled a lot in the beginning, and everyone there was amazingly supportive and patient with helping him (and me) through this. Throughout this past year, RJ has grown so much, is well adjusted to being at school every day. He just recently graduated into the Pre-K 3 program and is doing great! I am so grateful to have found TLE and feel confident everyday when I drop him off that he is building the skills necessary for when he begins elementary school.

I have the privilege of not only working for TLE, but also bringing my daughter with me every day. My daughter has thrived since starting in the Toddler program and she has truly flourished throughout the two years she has attended. Every day she comes home proudly showing us everything new she has learned at school, whether it be new sign language, or new vocabulary words such as “philanthropy”, her daily advancements amaze me. She is now preparing for the preschool program and is it comforting to know that she is ready academically, socially and developmentally based on the amazing education she has received. I look forward to continue to watch her grow at TLE!
