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…
“Two of my children have been going here for a year now. Our family and 2 children love it there and are very satisfied with their loving staff and the amazing curriculum. My daughter started there at 4 months old and has been communicating with sign language she learned from her loving teacher within a few months. All the Staff is very caring,loving and nurturing. My daughter is always welcomed with a big hug every morning which makes me feel very confident going to work leaving her,knowing shes going to get the snuggles she wants and the education she needs. I can go on and on about how much i love this place and the women who work there.”—RANDI BOGUS
“Our daughter started tlc in bayville almost 2 months ago. Since she has been there we noticed an inCrease in her verbal and non verbal communication. She even came home in oct singing a song! sShe loves her twaddler teachers and is always well cared for! All the staff is super friendly and available anytime I have a question. ”—Julie l
“My son has been at TLE almost two years now. We are extremely pleased with our experience here. Not only is it comforting it is structured. It's not daycare, they are learning everyday. I'm excited everyday to see what my son learned and wants to show me. They make the transition not only easy for your child but easy for the parent struggling with leaving their child with others. ”—Michelle R
“My Nephew goes to the school. I am amazed at how well he is developing. The teachers are all so nice and wonderful with all the children.”—Dawn Tardogno
“My son has been attending the Learning Experience in Berkeley for 2 1/2 years and absolutely loves it. The entire staff is amazing and so accommodating. From the day I toured the school I just fell in love with the atmosphere, the director and all the teachers. As a parent sending your child to day care can be very scary and I just have comfort knowing he is in such a great environment. Love love my TLE!”—Melissa Ginolfi
“My son attends TLE and we couldnt be happier with not only his progress but the feeling we get from the entire staff. Everyone acknowledges you and make sure to keep you updated on your childs progress and the happenings at the school, bc lets be honest we sometimes forget to read the memos coming home. Great expeience all around. ”—Mike T
“I am fairly new to this facility, but I can say that it is a truly amazing place for children. My child has learned so much in a little amount of time. The staff is friendly, dependable, and highly educated when it comes to my child's needs and learning style. The teachers are passionate about helping the children succeed and learn. My child is currently ahead of where she is expected to be socially and developmentally. The curriculum here is one of the best I have seen. Not only do the children develop and learn through play, they also learn through doing projects. This facility gives children endless learning opportunities. I highly recommend The Learning Experience to anyone and everyone with children. Your child deserves only the best when it comes to learning and developing and this facility will provide just that!”—Kristee
“My 3.5 year old daughter and 1 year old son go to TLE Berkeley and we love it! We started my daughter at the Jackson location when she was 6 months old and just recently moved to the Berkeley area this past March. I was anxious about how she would react to the change in location/caregivers, but the Berkeley staff were so welcoming and accommodating that she felt right at home in her new school. It was great to keep her school structure consistent and familiar throughout all the change that moving to a new home brings. The staff is very friendly and take wonderful care of my children!”—Lauren Csukardi
“My twin boys have being going to this amazing school for more then two years now. Teacher's and all staff are very caring, loving, clean, and very much concered about your childs well being while they are having fun with them at the same time. That being said my review is my boys and I adore The Learning Experience and being a part of such a wonderful school.....”—Heather Robert
“My 2 year old son has learned so much since he started at TLE. Everyone is so nice and you can tell they really care about, and truly enjoy the children. He comes home singing songs and doing the hand gestures that go along with them, he is using sign language, and his overall speech and communication has improved greatly. My son is very happy here... which makes me very happy as well :)”—Kristen M.
“I have had three children attend this Learning Experience center since 2008. Two have graduated to public school and the youngest is half-way through her journey. I love that Dena, and Chet still ask about my boys and are thrilled to see them when they return for a visit. Education is as much about creating relationships as it is about academics and the staff at TLE Berkeley, NJ have found a nice balance between the two key elements to students' success. Bravo! ”—Erin Colling
“Mikey enrolled at TLE Berkeley shortly after turning two. We had just moved from Pennsylvania and Mikey had to not only adjust to a new home but a new baby brother as well. Fortunately, we visited TLE Berkeley and soon after he started in the Twaddler room. As he has progressed from Twaddler to Prepper and now all the way to Preschool 3, what is still the most amazing part to me was how quickly he took to his teachers and his new friends. The people and the environment at this particular TLE was exactly what he needed to make his new home feel right. He loves going to school, playing with his friends, and yes, he even loves it when he gets homework! I could not be happier watching my son grow up with such a wonderful group of caring people. He has taken to TLE Berkeley like a home away from home, and for that, I am truly grateful. ”—Michael Kirk
“My son Sawyer absolutely loves TLE. Previous daycares/Pre-K he was in he would beg me not to go each morning but I have not heard that once since Ms. Thomas has been his teacher. He absolutely loves it there and he's doing so well. ”—Timothy Mills
“I have been using The Learning Experience for over 10 years for my children. The teachers are so wonderful and the owners are great. I never had to worry about my children while I was at work. They learned so much and made great friends! My daughter graduates today. She is going to miss her daycare and all of the wonderful people. I recommend this daycare to every parent, who is looking for great, loving care for their little ones.”—Carin Denman
