We enrolled our daughter at The Learning Experience when she was 12 weeks old and she's been there for almost two years. I can not say enough great things about TLE! This was our first experience with childcare and not only did the staff make our daughter feel comfortable they also made us feel comfortable too. Our daughter has an Egg allergy and they have been verya accomodating. She has learned so much while attending TLE and absolutely LOVES to go to school in the morning! They have a wonderful curriculum and a happy environment. I would recommend The Learning Experience to anyone looking for childcare in the area!

My 3 year old has been at TLE for almost 2 years. As this was our first experience with daycare-I didn't know what to expect. The ladies at TLE are all great! Our son gets great care and social interaction. TLE was even willing to work with our son's speech therapist and allowed her to see our son at the school to ease the situation. We are very comfortable here and our son looks forward to coming to "school" everyday!

My son has been attending daycare at the Learning Experience for just about 2 years now. The center's staff are great and friendly and we've never had any issues. The teachers are friendly and open and responsive and will answer any questions you may have about what your child did on any given day. The center has a great teaching program. My son can read sentences with 5 words already and he's only 4 1/2 years old. He has a huge sign language vocabulary that we use on a daily basis and often comes home singing a song about something he learned. He recites information he's learned about the United States and Italy and the Statue of Liberty to the types of transportation he can take - there is so much he is learning! My son is in their preschool and they use a workbook each month and the center provides sheets that come home with the child so that the parents can be involved in what the child is learning on a weekly basis. This is one of my favorite things - keeping the parents involved. I would recommend this center to anyone in the area looking for great quality care and education.

Our daughter has been attending The Learning Experience since she was 15 months. We have been very pleased with all of the staff & all of her teachers. Our daughter (who is now in the toddler room) has excelled socially & in her fundamentals & vocabulary (reciting her ABCs, counting to 20, singing songs, etc.). I would highly recommend this daycare to any of my family / friends.

I've enrolled 2 boys in TLE, both for preschool and one for kindergarten. The staff is dedicated and caring. The director is organized and friendly. Everything is immaculatly clean. Educational standards are very high for kindergarten. Overall, TLE is a great start for your child.

very disappointed with the Center's Director she make me feel not welcome. I don't know if this has to do with my skin color or because I ask for information about assistance from the state in where the center is enrolled.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.


Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
