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…
“My son has grown so much academically in the past 6 months since we put him in the TLE. It is amazing the amount of material he has learned in such a short time. The teachers are great. The program is excellent. The director is superb. In addition, I love that the children are taught the concept of philanthropy through real life application. I highly recommend this program!”—Deanna C
“I have been at TLE for almost 4 years and I couldn't imagine being else where for 4 years. TLE is a great school, not only a great school but has a great curriculum! Our curriculum is structured and strong for our kids. Our owner on site, management, and teachers are passionate about education and these children at TLE. We are a great team at TLE ... We are friendly and professional as can be. We are one big family with each other and especially with our children at TLE. All of our children are well taught and well mannered each and everyday! Come visit our school and really see what TLE is really all about!! P.s and coming this fall to TLE is now introducing our new curriculum Mandrian! :)”—Natalie.D
“I love our TLE! We have been apart of the TLE family for almost 3 years and every year this school gets better! The teaching staff is excellent and my boys have grown dramatically over the course of our time with TLE.. I love that both my boys are getting quality education with loving support and sometimes they don't want to leave at the end of the day. The administration is also excellent and very involved with the children and parents. I am comforted in the fact that I can trust them to properly take care of my children. Thank you to Ms Sital and all of her staff and teachers!!! ”—Crystal Yunker
“My boys absolutely love TLE they rush out the door in the morning ready to go and get upset that they can't go to school weekends too. The teachers and staff are awesome always very helpful with any questions or concerns we have, and they help my boys learn and grow. I could not be happier. I have had my boys in other day cares including a mom and pop smaller day care and a national chain and i would pick this TLE over any of them hands down. Thank you guys for doing a great job with all the kids in your care!!!”—ADAM YUNKER
“When I first brought "D" to daycare, I was a worried wreck! I had good reason, I was leaving my precious girl with people I didn't know! However, TLE Matawan was very patient with me. I would call daily, and they were always polite and told me how wonderful "D" was doing. I learned that TLE Matawan has a very loving and nurturing environment, which is just what I wanted for my daughter. I love the curriculum, including all the extras like LEAP, sign language, philanthropy, and Yippie for Yoga. She loves going to school everyday and doesn't want to go home! That love for school and education is being fostered everyday at TLE Matawan. I am very grateful for all they do for my daughter. There is no daycare better than TLE Matawan!”—Denise Barrett
“I am thrilled to write about The Learning Experience of Matawan. I have sent my daughter there for 3 years, so I feel that I know the school very well. When I first sent my daughter to daycare at one year old, we chose one a little closer to home and that was a huge mistake. My husband and I pulled her out of the school after 6 weeks. I was disgusted with daycare and didn’t want to send my daughter to another one. However, then we found The Learning Experience of Matawan and my fears vanished. I could tell right away that The Learning Experience of Matawan was a loving and nurturing environment, and I wasn’t wrong. After my last daycare experience, I would call TLE every day to check on my daughter, and they were reassuring and kind to me. I could see the difference in my daughter compared to the other school. When I picked her up from the other school, she would cry. When I picked her up from The Learning Experience of Matawan, she was smiling and happy. One of the huge...(Read More)”—Denise Dreher-Barrett
“My son has been at TLE Matawan for4 months. The staff is great. When there is an issue they work with you to come up with a solution. When my son first started he would cry right when my husband left him in his room. They came up with the idea to have him say goodbye to my husband at the front and have whoever is there walk him to his room. It worked. He says goodbye to everyone when we go home. He never did that at his old school. We'll be walking in the hallway and everyone says hi to him. I highly recommend TLE Matawan if you are looking for a preschool for your child.”—Kelly Scolnick
“My son has been going here for 3 months and we have nothing but positive things to say. First off we came from another facility that was lacking in almost every area of childcare so we were skeptical about sending our child to the same franchise. However, after sitting down with Ms. Trish & Mr. Nico, our fears quickly turned to excitement. The communication that the staff delivers via email, phone, or simple word of mouth is exceptional. The staff truly cares about the kids and the parents. They even go the extra mile letting you know if there is unusual traffic or congestion in the area so you can adjust your pickup/drop off route accordingly. The teachers are great, and they have no problem reinforcing vocabulary, potty training, and much more”—Stephany
“I have sent my child to The Learning Experience in Matawan for 3 years. I could not imagine sending her any where else. My child loves to go to school, and that is very important to instill a love of learning before entering elementary school. She has gained so much knowledge, I know she will be ahead of the game when she does begin Kindergarten. The staff and administration are top notch. I am deeply impressed with their academic programs, daily summer camp activities, and monthly fundraising events. This daycare/school exceeds my expectations. Therefore, I highly recommend The Learning Experience of Matawan.”—Rich Barrett
