TLE @ Troy is an amazing facility. When we first started looking for daycares, I was nervous about leaving my 10wk old at a daycare. From the 1st time we toured, we got a warm and fuzzy welcome from the manager and all the teachers. It's been 4 months now and the staff is amazing and soo very loving. I can tell that each of her teachers loves what they do and have the passion for it. They are extremely gently and caring. I love all the activities they do to help stimulate their learning. We couldn't be happier with our decision to drop baby Z to TLE of Troy. Thank you all for everything! Baby Z loves you guys :).

My baby started at TLE Troy just a month ago when she was 4 months old and I already know it's a good place for her. She is learning from the other babies and loves interacting with her friends in her class. There are a lot of fun things for her to play with and she gets a lot of nice attention from her teacher Ms. Leah. It was hard to leave her the first day but I feel comfortable dropping her off every morning knowing she is in good hands. She always seems happy when I see her in her room which is a good sign. Thank you to her teacher and to the great directors, Ms. Tiffany and Ms. Jessi, at TLE Troy. It's a great place to send your kids where you know they will be taken care of.
