I had kept my older two children out of daycare because a bad previous experience, but when I changed jobs after having my third child, I knew I would have to find a place for her before she started school. It was one of the best decisions I have made. All her teachers over the years have been absolutely wonderful, the curriculum is awesome, and she has been socially and academically prepared for kindergarten and beyond. We love TLE!

Our daughter has been going to TLE for about 8 months. She started in the infant room and now is Toddler A and moving to Toddler B this month. She enjoys seeing her friends. I love to see her art activities and enjoy seeing her pictures through the app.

From day 1, we have been impressed by the staff and facility in their organization, safety, care, and love. What an awesome environment to learn and grow in.. an experience I never had the pleasure of as a child. The dialogue, communication, cleanliness, safety, and education are all top notch.

We've been attending a TLE center for the past 2+ years and have enjoyed every aspect of it! I feel that the teachers and staff go above and beyond to make the children feel loved and cared for. I've been told my youngest (7 months) is a very happy baby and I know some of that is because he enjoys his teachers and his surroundings at "school" so much. I know that when I drop them off each morning, they will be well taken care of which is the most comforting feeling for a parent. And, if I ever have any feedback/suggestions, the staff is always listening and quick to respond and/or implement any changes. Thanks TLE!

We have only been at this location for a couple of months and we are very pleased. My daughter loves it there. She never cries when we leave here which makes it easy on mama. The ladies in the front are also great and very friendly. We have been pleased with our experience at TLE.

We have been so pleased with the care our youngest child has been provided. The new TLE app gives frequent notices that ensure our child is having a good day. We have had consistent teachers in his classrooms and there is no better feeling than dropping your child off with people you know are going to treat them as well as you do. The social, emotional and educational growth our son is gaining is incredible. We love The Learning Experience.
