Curriculum that develops the whole child

Our L.E.A.P.® (Learning Experience Academic Program) Curriculum uses fun, hands-on activities throughout early education to help children develop intellectually, socially and cognitively. Or as we say, to learn, play and grow.

The Park Central location in Richmond, VA is more than amazing. They’re so loving, supportive and friendly. They welcome my son with open arms every morning. Even when he’s having a difficult day they have so much patience with him. He comes home happy (and full!) he’s been going to TLE since he was 8 months. He’ll be 2 this year and we couldn’t thank them more. The director and assistant director are amazing. Their communication is out of this world. And the teachers are so patient. Thank you!

Being a first time mom, I was really worried about my son not being with me all day. After about a week or two at TLE my son was a totally different kid! He even had a favorite teacher, he was making friends, and finally started on a sip cup!! My son has now been at TLE for going on 5 months now and every morning and after noon teachers' from other classes say "hi" and "good bye!" Its such a warming feeling knowing that everyone is so friendly and knowing that my baby is taken care of. The best part is the extra activities they have to offer in summer camp. TLE is by far the best daycare for my family!

My daughter has only been going to daycare since about April, this was her first time interacting with other teachers and children. In the past 3 months she has grown so much she knows a couple things in sign language and her vocabulary has expanded! She loves going to day care and will walk in the door no problem! Her teachers are amazing and they have a bond with her! I would recommend The Learning Experience to anyone that looks for a family oriented and teaching school!

My son has been going to The Learning Experience for a little over a year and so far, he likes it. He likes his classmates and teachers and they take care of the kids well. He was going to another school close by before but he wasn’t too happy dropping off or picking up. The Learning Experience seems to fit him much better. I recommend it.
