I've been so thankful to land upon this daycare. Everyone is so kind & supportive toward my child. He has teachers there that I know he is safe & secure with. Everyone is so resourceful and willing to help. The staff communicate well & actually speak to me about what is going on. I love how culturally diverse it is. There is so much creativity & imagination there at this daycare. I like seeing the curriculum and what my child will be learning and exploring. I appreciate everyone in the building who has helped my child in any way. We truly are grateful to have such a caring and loving daycare to have my child attend.

Our girls just recently started at TLE. They are thriving since being there! They are always excited at drop off and happy at pickup! It's been a breath of fresh air to always see a smile on their face when they are there. We quickly noticed how much they were learning and communicating more easily with us. They are saying their ABCs and counting. It's been very cool to see them doing so well. We love TLE! They have been a perfect fit for our girls. We would highly recommend them to any one!

After being a stay at home mom, I had an incredible opportunity to go back to work. I asked for some recommendations from friends which lead me to TLE. From the moment I walked in I knew I wanted my daughter to attend. The facility is CLEAN, having been involved with nursery schools on the business side I can honestly say it’s the cleanest one I’ve ever been to. The teachers are loving, caring, intuitive and educationally focused on early childhood development including STEM, sign language, fine motor, socialization and so much more. My absolute favorite thing about TLE is the pictures you get through the App. All day while I’m at work I get notifications of all the fun my child is having at nursery school. The teachers tie all the experiences back to a learning component reinforcing the lesson behind the activity. I highly recommend TLE to the thoughtful parent that wants the absolute best for their child.

We have been enrolled at TLE St. Peters East for about a month now and are loving it! The staff are all so welcoming, and we could tell how much they loved their jobs and the kiddos from the very first tour. We had gone to a different daycare previously, and are blown away by the differences between our old one and TLE. The app is great, we love getting photos throughout the day, and the updates on how long or if she naps, what she ate, etc! It helps with nightly talks about how her day was, because I have an idea of what she did that day, which is great! I love the curriculum updates, and my daughter gets excited for "show and tell" on Fridays. Overall, a great experience so far and I would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family!

As a first-time mom, I was very nervous about leaving my baby girl, but the staff at TLE has made me feel so much more comfortable! I feel confident dropping my baby off each morning knowing that she is being taken care of and is in such good hands!
