This year, I decided to stay home with my daughter but still wanted her to have access to a classroom environment in order to continue developing her social and emotional skills. I am beyond grateful and truly cannot express enough how happy I have been with her two teachers: Ms. Autumn and Ms. Eboni. Their attentiveness and understanding of my daughter is truly a testimony of their love for children and early intervention skills and development. Dropping off my daughter in their classroom means I am confident she is going to be safe, happy, and have the best time learning. Thank you, Ms. Autumn and Ms. Eboni for your commitment to the growth and development of all the children you care for - you two are simply the best!

We are forever grateful to LE in Wheeling for how great they have been with our son. Our family had a traumatic experience with our son's prior daycare and we were nervous to send him to one again. However, from the start of our tour until now a few weeks since he began at LE in Wheeling, we have had a positive experience. The staff and teachers a great at communicating with us daily, truly care about the kids and are transparent about everything happening within their daycare. They take a lot of safety precautions and keep the place very clean. They are conscientious of our son's food allergies. Our son wasn't himself for the 2 weeks following his experience at the prior daycare but in just 1 week at LE in Wheeling and everyone has noticed that he is a brand new kid. Whenever we pick him up, he looks so happy, cries when we are pulling out of the parking lot because he doesn't want to leave, comes home talking a lot more and even following instructions and obeying the rules we enforce at home. We credit this to their patience with the kids as well as experience and knowledge in childcare. We would recommend to everyone that they send their child here. You will not regret it.

We were searching for care for our one-year-old (at the time). Being that this our first child going to day care for first time, and it was the middle of a pandemic, our expectations were high. After searching and touring many other daycares, we came upon TLE. This brand-new learning academy had everything we were looking for: early education, enrichment programs, safety, and FUN. It wasn’t until we had the chance to meet with April that we just knew this was the place for our little one to thrive. My daughter, now 3, has achieved milestones far beyond our expectations. Her verbal, cognitive, and social skills are outstanding. We have seen ourselves, the dedication that all the teachers have for our children’s success. TLE is an extension of home, putting emphasis on the importance of our child’s happiness, success, and exposure to learning and diversity. This is truly the best first step to take for your child’s bright future. We love TLE- Wheeling!

With our 1 year anniversary approaching, we are so pleased with the decision we made to join the TLE Family. Our Daughter Brooke enrolled as a prepper and is currently in preschool. She's grown so much over the past year and we are so grateful for the amazing and patient teachers she's had along the way. Exciting to hear her break into tune with a new song she's learned from Ms. Camarina, Ms. Jami, Mr. Joe or Ms. Rosary. As a parent, I can relate. Nobody wants to be away from their child during the work week. Knowing any current/prospective parent is going to be cared for, educated, nurtured in a way that they are while at TLE, makes the drop off so much easier. Also I can't say enough positive things about the leadership. Ms. April & Ms. Jami work so hard to keep a new and inviting center so polished, especially throughout the pandemic. And the menu, amazing - healthy, different and plentiful. Please if you have questions or are uncertain of where to enroll your little one's, please schedule a walk through with TLE Family and you will be so happy that you did.

I honestly don't have a bad thing to say about TLE Wheeling - it feels more like a family than just "childcare" more like a school than "daycare", and the staff truly love my child. I am constantly impressed - between the curriculum, the app, being able to get instant updates on everything from what he is learning, what he ate, bowel movements or lack of, and see pictures of him throughout the day to the incredible teachers and their level of care - this place is a godsend. All the teachers know all the kids' names, regardless of what classroom they are in, and to me, that is a big deal. I know my son is in good hands every day and he is learning and growing and having a blast. He has so much fun participating in all the unique themes and corresponding learning activities each week and he comes home talking about what he did and things he learned/observed. The center directors also go out of their way to make my life easier as a mama. They are flexible, helpful, always agreeable to parental requests I might have (limit fruit today please or, please change him into a pull up before pick up) and I never have to figure out what room he's in in the morning and go looking for the teacher (like I had to at a previous center) - she, or the center director, is always up front waiting for him. I could go on forever, but just need to say one more thing I love about TLE Wheeling is all the family events. From trunk or treat to summer bbqs and the wonderful mother's day breakfast event they held, its really nice to have the opportunity to meet other parents, interact with my child's teachers in the classroom, and feel as though we are part of a community.
