TLE - Novi is an amazing Educational Center! My son has gone there since he was 2 1/2 (he is now 4) and after being diagnosed with special needs, they staff and teachers went out of their way to help integrate him into a normal classroom setting and they work with him continuously to make sure he is engaged, learning, and having fun! Not only have they made him feel welcome and loved, but they have implemented all the suggestions from his therapists to help him with his regulation. I could not ask for better teachers or administration for my son! Our Infant son also goes there as well, and I have no doubt in my mind that the staff in the infant room are loving him like their own! I wouldn't send my children anywhere else. If you are looking for a place for your child to feel at home and loved, while learning and preparing for school, TLE - Novi is the only place to go!

If you’re looking for a home away from home for your child, then TLE Novi is the place to enroll your child. From management to teachers, all staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. The facility is brand new and state of the art. I am so grateful TLE follow the CDC guidelines to keep my child safe and healthy. They have great customer service! The teachers are very informative on how your child’s day is going. They do a lot of activities with the children. I can go to work knowing my child as well taken care of and is in good hands. The school reflects a highly qualified Early Childhood Educational Center. As an educator myself, I would strongly recommend this location.

They do such a wide variety of activities that my kid always has something exciting to share when she gets home. I would recommend TLE to ANY parent looking for a daycare.

We were in such a journey of childcare options, after deciding to part ways with our nanny. This was a tough choice as we were not at ease about all we heard about daycares. So we of course set out to find a place that would educate our now 9-month-old, and not just a babysitting service. We toured many centers and The Learning Experience-Novi, was top of the list! Unfortunately, at the time, they had a waiting list for the infant room. While we were bummed we kept looking. My husband and I were still so drawn to TLE-Novi for their clean and friendly learning environment, the colorful walls, curriculum, personalized care, teacher to student ratio, and most of all, top notch security! The center’s owner, Sandy, and all of their staff, were super welcoming and made you feel like family at hello! They make you feel amazing as a first time parent leaving your child. They send updates and pictures all day long to know what your little one is up to, on the TLE Parent App! That is quite comforting! All that to say, a miracle happened and a spot opened up for our daughter! We couldn’t be happier and truly found the best place for her. Trust in our journey and story. This is the true learning experience for your child. I’m an educator of 14 years myself, so I know when I see legit child development, and this this is it. When the world opens back up, join us at TLE-Novi! You won’t regret your decision!

I am thoroughly satisfied with my son’s experience at The Learning Experience(Novi)! The owner Sandy and the manager Kirsten are so kind and helped ease my anxieties in leaving my baby for the first time. My son is in the infant room which is so clean and inviting with nice music always playing. The teachers I have met have been so wonderful! They really make me feel comfortable leaving my son with them all day. I love the pictures and updates I get throughout the day (from the TLE app) and enjoy sharing with friends and family the photos showing all the activities they have him doing. They do things with him I wouldn’t even think to do! I would definitely recommend The Learning Experience Novi to new moms who may be anxious about leaving their baby!
