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 is amazing! It's not just babysitting, they actually teach a curriculum! When you leave your child at daycare for the day you hope that they'll be safe and learn a lot. TLE does both! The teachers and staff are gentle and kind and the curriculum is interesting and challenges each child to grow! I cannot be more at ease leaving her at TLE, I know she is safe and is getting prepared well for kindergarten!”—Deb
“I have the privilege of not only working for TLE, but also bringing my daughter with me every day. My daughter has thrived since starting in the Toddler program and she has truly flourished throughout the two years she has attended. Every day she comes home proudly showing us everything new she has learned at school, whether it be new sign language, or new vocabulary words such as “philanthropy”, her daily advancements amaze me. She is now preparing for the preschool program and is it comforting to know that she is ready academically, socially and developmentally based on the amazing education she has received. I look forward to continue to watch her grow at TLE!”—Meghan
“My son started at TLE in Newtown last school year. He had no previous experience being in a daycare/school setting and was also going through a lot of other transitions. He struggled a lot in the beginning, and everyone there was amazingly supportive and patient with helping him (and me) through this. Throughout this past year, RJ has grown so much, is well adjusted to being at school every day. He just recently graduated into the Pre-K 3 program and is doing great! I am so grateful to have found TLE and feel confident everyday when I drop him off that he is building the skills necessary for when he begins elementary school. ”—Jennifer Bulluss
“My son has been at TLE for a year now. He loves it here. The infant teachers are the best. They really do go above and beyond. When we pull into the parking lot he claps. I know he's in good hands while we are away. ”—Kristin M
“Wow! What a great and easy transition! My son and my older daughter have been at other preschools and daycare facilities... In the past my son would wake up saying "No School Tomorrow!" Now he is waking up excited for school and telling me who he is going to play with and what they are going to do. I can't believe he has only been there a few weeks... he LOVES it! Thank you for making the change into a new daycare/preschool so smooth! My son can not wait for school tomorrow!”—Casey Ragan
“After checking out all the day care centers in town, TLE was the only place that I felt safe and excited to send our son to. The atmosphere is bright and cheerful. The staff has a lot of great energy to share with the kids. We are extremely happy with the fun and age appropriate curriculum, too !”—Laura
“A year and a half ago we moved to Newtown, CT. 6 months until our new home was built, my wife and I traveled numerous times to the greater Danbury area in search of not only high quality "childcare" but a place that fostered strong learning skills, a clean and safe environment, and most of all a place that truly cared for our son. After looking, at what seemed like forever, we finally were able to visit TLE of Newtown. Needless to say our son has thrived at TLE Newtown and we are continuously amazed at the progress we see daily with his vocabulary and social skills to name a few. Thank you TLE! ”—Michael A
“My daughter Giavanna loves school thanks to TLE! Last winter we had to make a super fast transition from babysitters at home to daycare due to an emergency situation. Everyone at TLE was warm and welcoming and helped us all transition quickly. They made room for my daughter and let us call and check on her for peace of mind. TLE is a great childcare with a wonderful curriculum program for all ages. Thank you TLE!!!”—Mary Dentice
“My daughter went through TLE and now my son is going through TLE. He started at 4 months and he's now 3 years old. I have loved every one of the teachers I have met for both my children at TLE. My children are very different and have had very different needs. From special lunches for my daughter to more hands on potty training for my son, I have been thrilled with my time at TLE. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking into daycare. ”—Adam Gietz
“My daughter has been at TLE since she was five months old. They exceeded our expectations on the very first day when they sent me pictures and messages of how she was doing. Today she is a Prepper and I am so impressed with the curriculum and daily activities. She loves her teachers and enjoys going to school each day!”—Tyra Lohmann
“This is our third year at TLE in Newtown and they have exceeded all of our expectations.Their teachers are caring and friendly.

I'm so grateful that we are a part of the TLE family! ”—Dina Miller

“Our small in home daycare closed with little notice and we were in need of care for our twins. We were ready to send our boys to another daycare, until my husband received an email about TLE from work. We went for a visit and were sold on the enter. As an educator myself, I know the expectations put on children once they reach school age, and saw the foundations at TLE Newtown. Our boys have been loving school in their few weeks there, and already see their learning develop. Thanks, Stacey z.”—Stacey z.

He has since started to talk and is thriving socially when we meet others his age. Even with his newfound separation anxiety, it's a comfort to know that he's in a safe, nurturing environment.”—Elizabeth Harrington
“Marcus is our second child to go through the TLE program. Our daughter arrived in kindergarten with a definite advantage over the other students. The confidence she gained from the TLE program has for sure aid her in school. There was no question we wanted our son to have the same experience. The teachers are for sure the the best part of TLE. They are loving caring and always look out for the best interest of all the children.
