Early childhood is a time of remarkable brain development. The education that children receive during these years creates the foundation for their future growth, development and learning potential.
At The Learning Experience®, we are dedicated to cultivating creative, compassionate and innovative young minds through our proprietary curriculum and enrichment programs that increase learning during six critical stages of early development. Our programs have been built to help children maximize their cognitive, physical and social potential. Or as we say at TLE®, we help children "learn, play and grow!"
We believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn, that's why our educational programs are designed to inspire children's love of learning through hands-on lessons that make their educational experience fun! Daily lessons promote positive engagement throughout the day and include phonics, sign language, manners and etiquette, philanthropy, foreign language and hands-on technology. Enrichment programs such as yoga, soccer, drama, dance and music are also offered at no additional cost.
Whether you have an inquisitive infant, tenacious toddler or passionate preschooler, put your child on the path to success and discover how we help children reach their full potential at The Learning Experience®!
What our parents are saying about us…
“My son is 20 months old and was recently diagnosed with Autism. While waiting for the evaluation and the results we decided to put him in TLE to have him socialize with other children in an attempt to get him to open up. 2 weeks at TLE and he became a completely different child. He started giving more eye contact, making more sounds, and using signs they had taught him in class to communicate. He was excited to go to school in the morning and couldn't wait to get into his classroom to see his friends. This place is incredible and probably the best decision I have ever made. ”—Roselynn Brown
“TLE (San Jose Blvd. Jacksonville, FL) HAPPY MOTHER OF 2 If you have not had the pleasure to even take a tour at The Learning Experience on San Jose Blvd, you can’t even begin to know what your child (children) are missing! This children’s daycare offers an amazing faculty and phenomenal curriculum. Both of my children love “going to school” here. We have attended since the first day its doors opened and plan to be a part of TLE Family until kindergarten! My son learned not only to recognize but to spell his name confidently in less than 3 months (prior to VPK), and my daughter (2 yrs. younger) has surpassed her brother’s entrance level skills/knowledge. They both came home teaching me Mandarin Chinese words and yoga immediately after enrollment! As a nurse, I understand the importance of age-appropriate developmental activities, use of play, and early social interactions create healthy, happy children. These teachers not only appreciate this understanding but monitor and...(Read More)”—Cherie R.
“Since Marlie started at TLE, we have had nothing short or an incredible experience. The staff's focus on education and creating a nurturing environment has been a perfert fit for Marlie. One experience in particular will stick with me forever. Marlie was in a transition period between potty training and diapers. She was really struggling with going number 2 in the potty. When she finally did, the director of the center, Miss Cheryl, made a point to bring Marlie into her ofice and call me at work to tell me all about her accomplishment. Miss Cheryl took a picture of Marlie calling me and printed it out as a keepsake which is something I will always treasure. I would highly recommend this school to anyone and greatly appreciate the personal attention and touch the staff given to my little girl. Thank you so much Miss Kruti, Miss Tina and Miss Cheryl for everything you do!”—Jessica Grinnan

“The Learning Experience (TLE) is a fabulous family oriented environment that supports and challenges each child’s development appropriately. We have two attending and both “love school” which is always a plus. Most impressive is the unique and varied curriculum that includes the LEAP (interactive) program, computer access in the classroom, Mandarin Chinese, sign language, and even yoga as well as coordinated weekly teaching plans. The entire staff works together efficiently and effectively as a team with us (parents) to enhance, enrich, and encourage our children’s development process. Both of our children enjoy learning through play using basics such as circle time, arts and crafts, playground, music, exercise time to “Make Believe Boulevard” time.

Mrs. Sheryl (Center Director), Ms. Meg (Business Manager), Mrs. Kruti (Prepper’s Teacher), and Ms. Tina (Prepper’s Teacher) are like having an...(Read More)”—Cherie Rogers
“We love everything about the Learning Experience on San Jose Blvd. We have two children ages 1 and 3 attending and they both love going to school. Our oldest son loves his teacher Mrs. Tina. She takes the time to get to know the children on a personal level and make them feel comfortable and confident. This is our youngest son’s first experience with day care and it has been a easy transition. He receives a lot of individual attention and I truly feel like his teacher Ms. Wynette loves him. Administration has also gone above and beyond to make our first experience wonderful. Mrs. Sheryl and Mrs. Meg have answered every question with a smile. My son loves to run into the office and tell Mrs. Sheryl about his day. I know that I made the right decision when I switched to this school. We have had an amazing experience. ”—Sarah G
“The Learning Experience is great school for our children. The teachers are well qualified and very attentive to the child's needs.

The staff is very friendly and the curriculum looks good. ”—Brock

“My son and I absolutely love TLE Mandarin! Ms. Tina has done a great job encouraging and working with him as he adapted to a new learning environment. I've noticed a huge improvement in his school focus. He loves to trace, call out shapes, colors and call out different subjects and activities that he's learned. Every day he tells me he had a good day. I only wish a TLE was around when my older kids were this age. Thank you TLE!”—Patrice Phillips
“We love TLE. Wouldn't go anywhere else. My grandson and learned so much there and the teachers are attentive to his needs. GREAT trunk or treat 2015”—Joey
“As a new grand parent, Here I thought I knew everything about finding childcare for my grandchildren until they started going to the one Jacksonville Mandarin. From the director greeting me at the door, checking my ID and my families files and walking me to the classroom, I felt that they were in the most secure environment possible. Thanks. (love the cameras for the hard drop off days :)”—Mare Rierson
