We are incredibly happy to send my baby boy to such loving and caring people. The TLC is like a second home for my son and he is learning a lot there. Love the fact that the center is clean, hygienic, well maintained with friendly staff.

He especially loved Ms. Melanie and Ms. Alexxis. I can't say enough good things! His current teachers are all wonderful, they all helped him adjust to his new class and were patient as he made the transition. What more can parents want than a smiling child when they pick-up at the end of a long day?

I was so hesitant to start my daughter at a school because she was a stay at home baby and had no experience around other children. I was nervous for her especially since she was lagging in her speech. However, once I took a tour of TLE and seen how positive, clean, and involved the staff is with the students, I was convinced that this would be the center for her. TLE was the best out of three different day cares in the area. I am so glad that I did my research and looked around for the best day care for my daughter. Its now 5 months later and my daughter has excelled tremendously! She is talking, repeating after us and loves her teacher! She doesn't want to come home! Thanks TLE!!

We owe that to the incredible teachers and staff at TLE! Every teacher she has had has been wonderful and the curriculum really prepares the kids for school. The facility is clean, the staff/teachers are wonderful, I really cannot believe all that our daughter has accomplished while at TLE. Reading, writing, speaking Spanish, using sign language, the list goes on! Thank you TLE! We cannot wait to see how much our son thrives there next!
