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…
“As a full time working mom, my daughter has been at TLE since she was 12 weeks old full time. She is now four. She also attends their summer programs. In the four years at TLE, I couldn't have asked for better teachers. The teachers are wonderful - from the nursery to the preschool. Each one emulating their own characteristics that bring life to the classroom and experiences that my daughter has always talked about at the end of her day. Last year and this year, I have been beyond impressed with the academics of the school. Sophia can spell her name. She knows her colors, shapes, numbers and letters. I am comfortable and confident that Sophia will have an advantage going into Kindergarten when the time comes because of her education at TLE. Also, all the parents at TLE are nice!! Sophia has made so many friends, and I've become friends with all their parents. Everyone says good morning to each other, and good night. You find yourself knowing the names of children that aren't...(Read More)”—Danielle DeVincenzo
“After researching a number of early childhood programs, it is obvious that I made the right choice in landing with TLE in Rivervale. My daughter has been attending their school since she was one and has been thriving with her extensive vocabulary, social skills and emotional well being. From the first day she started, I felt confident and knew she was in safe, loving hands. The teachers are caring and know how to balance the right level of praise, recognition and discipline when warranted. As a single parent, there are times I need reinforcement of my parenting style. Linda, the TLE Director is a fantastic resource and a great listener. My daughter has made great friends and learns something new everyday. I am amazed by the comprehensive curriculum which includes learning how to speak Spanish,engaging in sign language and telling the weather. The imaginary playroom is incredible and truly sets the stage for children to grow their creativity. I highly recommend TLE Rivervale. ”—Caren Feldman
“Before having my first child, I did a tremendous amount of research into daycare centers, never stumbling upon The Learning Experience because I was looking for places closer to work than home. I looked at numerous child care centers, and each time I walked out, I was left with a pit in my stomach. None of them felt like the right place for my daughter, Hailey, therefore I looked into other options for her and found an in-home option....I spent a year and a half thinking I was happy. Early last year, my search began all over again. Hailey was now just a little over 2 and I was pregnant with my son. I wanted a place that I could bring both my children with very different needs. Hailey was becoming more self sufficient and independent. She was quite verbal and active. She was ready to be challenged, ready to learn. I knew my son would need a warm, loving, nurturing environment. One where all of his little needs would be met from the time I dropped him off at 4 months. ...(Read More)”—Jen D.
