Our founders, the Weissman family

The Learning Experience® is one of the most trusted brands in the childcare space. Founded by the Weissman family in 2002 with a passion for early childhood education and a unique approach that drives learning and development through the eyes of a child, TLE has been dedicated to providing excellence in early education and childcare for more than 20 years!

The Weissman family have been developing best-in-class childcare brands for more than 40 years, establishing hundreds of centers across the globe that make children happy to learn, play, and grow! Through philanthropic efforts, innovation in curriculum and technology, and more, the Weissman family is forever dedicated to the TLE mission.

Milestones under the Weissmans

In 1987, Michael and his son Richard acquired Tutor Time, a childcare company with over 200 centers in 25 states and four countries, from which they retired in 1997 and 1999, respectively.

In 2002, the Weissmans reentered the childcare industry and brought back the TLE® brand — with Michael as Chairman and CEO until his retirement in 2014, when Richard assumed both roles.

Our commitment to innovation in education

From our curriculum to our vibrant centers to our lovable characters, TLE® has always taken an innovative approach to daycare and early childhood education. The result is an experience that’s as effective as it is fun.
