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…
“TLE in Chantilly has been fantastic. Our son started when we was a year old, and now we've been there for a year and a half. The teachers truly care about the kids -- in addition to the daily write up about what my son does every day, I can easily chat with his teachers at the end of the day and they understand his mood and nature. The owners and directors are easy to talk to, responsive to any concerns or questions, and really a pleasure to work with. Another thing I like about TLE is they bring in great stuff for the kids! At least once or twice a month, there's a new activity or event the kids are being exposed to -- a dentist coming in and teaching them about teeth care, a local farmer bringing his animals, special events for holidays, and more. ”—Talat Mangla
“We recently switched our 5 month old daughter from another local center in Centreville to TLE in Chantilly. The transition has been seamless for her! We love the security features in place (access fobs, cameras, etc) and we love how the diaper changing area faces the room so that the worker never has her back to the other children. They're working on sign language with the babies (this month's sign is "happy") and they do tummy time each day. She gets lots of interaction and the staff welcome her by singing her a song in the mornings. Highly recommended! ”—Chrysta Nightengale
“I am a mother of a 4 yr old who attends preschool at The Learning Experience, Chantilly, VA. I looked around various places in September 2013 for my son since I had moved from MD to VA at that time. I am extremely happy with my choice to go with TLE. My son used to attend home day care prior to that and in addition he was little shy, so I was little concerned about him adjusting to a bigger place. Teachers at TLE made him very comfortable right from day 1 and now he actually looks forward to being in preschool everyday. He is also picking up reading, writing and numbers really fast. In addition TLE also organizes lot of in-school activities and field trips which keeps it interesting for kids. Bottom line is that my son loves TLE and so do I. ”—Renuka Limgala

“Both of my kids attend(ed) the Learning Experience (TLE) in Chantilly, VA. My daughter Veronica graduated in 2013 and my son Alec is currently in Preschool I. TLE is a wonderful school/daycare center, which has caring and experienced teachers, a very interesting academic curriculum, a safe and clean facility with amazing inside play areas and a good outside playground. The center offers a lot of fun activities such as visits from a local farmer, fall festival, fire truck playtime, etc. Ms. Jennifer, the owner, is a hands-on manager, who knows every child at her center and helps cater to child's individual needs on a daily basis. She is a very kind, friendly person, who loves kids. And of course, kids love her back! Ms. Judy, the director, is an experienced child-care professional with a passion for early childhood education. She loves working with kids and very responsive to any parental feedback. Overall, we are very satisfied with this center. It offers the best...(Read More)”—Elena Sokolovski
“We love TLE in Chantilly! My little one is 2 years old and has been attending about several months. We transitioned her from another daycare and it is amazing how well she adjusted in such a short time. It is no doubt a direct reflection on the great staff they have there. They are all warm and caring people. The owners and directors are very hands on and you can tell they take great pride in what they do. The facilities are wonderful and we love that they bring the fresh air into the building, all day every day! We have been happy with the care that is provided and will highly recommend this school to everyone! ”—Melissa Tarrant
“Both of my kids (now 24 months and 4 yrs old) have been attending The Learning Experience since it opened. They each have transitioned up though couple of classes and we've gotten to know most of the teachers well. We all love it! The kids are not just entertained and well taken care of, they are learning important things from language skills to manners. They have been lucky to form special relationships with their teachers and really look forward to school each day. As a parent I have really appreciated the administration team as well. They have made scheduling irregularities and special circumstances painless for me, which is huge--as a mother you are always coordinating so much! They have felt like part of my team, unified around taking care of my kids. I cannot recommend TLE high enough! ”—Gretchen Comey
“My daughter has been enrolled in TLE Chantilly since August 2014 and this is the best school in all of the NOVA area. The facility is clean, bright and very inviting. My daughter loves her teachers and I feel confident that TLE cares about my daughters well being. From the healthy snacks, to the multiple rooms she goes into during the day, TLE does everything they can to ensure my daughter is cared for while enjoying her day at the school. The staff at TLE goes above and beyond to ensure me and my daughter are happy. TLE is run by professionals that care. Staff is so helpful and the facility is just wonderful.”—Sabeen Sheikh
“When I came to TLE, I was seeking a position in an accredited school that shared my educational philosophy. I wanted to be part of a well-organized team that truly cared about the educational experience they were delivering. I wanted to work for a school that respected and supported the teacher to facilitate the delivery of the best learning experience possible - not just a day care center. TLE Chantilly is the very best! TLE Chantilly is a family- centered environment, that is clean, organized, and friendly. TLE chantilly consistently provides a strong curriculum that includes academics, social/emotional development & enrichment activities. Both teacher and student are energized to participate making every day not only a learning opportunity but, just plain fun! I am very fortunate to be part of the TLE team and enjoy participating with all of our children and their families. It's a win-win experience for all!”—Janice Grimm
“We love TLE Chantilly! You can tell when you walk in the center is really a big family and the staff really cares about the kids. Miss Judy is the best- she has gone above and beyond for my daughter who is very shy, and needs a little extra help during the day. She has provided me with some resources that could assist my daughter, and you can just tell they really care. My daughter loves going to "school" and I really feel like I am setting her up to succeed in Kindergarten by sending her to TLE. Love the summer camp too- they take the kids on so many great field trips! Could not be happier with my experience.”—Kristie Burke
“My Daughter has been going to TLE for 2 years. Her communication skills, reading, socializing have improved considerably. The teachers in PreSchool 2 and 3 where my daughter attended are very friendly and caring. The regular curriculum, summer programs, excursions, special visits, have all added up to a singular experience. This has been a great experience for us. Ms. Jennifer and Ms. Judy have done a great job in running this establishment. ”—Rohel M
