I enrolled my daughter at the Learning Experience a year ago, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The staff are incredibly caring. The facilities are clean, safe, and well-equipped, providing all the necessary opportunities for learning and play. My daughter comes home every day with excited stories of activities they've participated in. I have peace of mind when I go to work. I highly recommend TLE any parent looking for a place where their child can thrive and grow.

I searched for a daycare that had the right "feel" before I went back to work with my second baby. I had selected a competitor daycare initially but was not certain. I just had that feeling in my stomach that it wasn't right for the facilities, to the personalities of the people to the clientele themselves. So I ventured to TLE. I took one walk through from the bright welcoming atmosphere to the caring smiling faces of the teachers and knew we were home. The setup of each room and its curriculum is indicative of the "learning" center you leave your children at each day. As certain as I was from day 1, I am still to this day certain of my choice and thankful every day I found TLE.
