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…
“After 7 years with TLE both my girls have now graduated and are more than prepared to move on thanks to the staff at tle. The teachers have always shown such love for my children and such joy in their accomplishments as if they were their own children. The curriculum has prepared my girls to not only succeed but to excel in school all the while making everyday a fun new adventure for the kids. I would like to truly thank all the staff from the bottom of my heart for taking such good care of my babies!!!”—Audra Grasso
“My oldest son joined TLE of Centereach in 2007 just days after they opened their doors for the first time.. He followed the program through graduation and left leaving more than prepared for Kindergarten. When it came time for my second child to enter childcare; without a thought; he was enrolled. He recently began Kindergarten and again; he is more than ready academically and socially. He received lots of love, exceptional care and learned something new EVERYDAY.... After the birth of my third child; I look forward to another 5 years with the dynamic TLE family of Centereach!!!!!”—M. W.
“I couldn't be happier with my decision to enroll my 6 month old daughter at TLE of Centereach. The school is immaculate, which is very important to me. The teachers really go above and beyond, and are very professional. I have had a wonderful experience so far, and am so thankful for everything TLE has to offer!”—Karen
“I just can't express how thankful I am to have found The Learning Experience of Centereach. Choosing the right school can be challenging, and I certainly did my research. Just walking into the school for my tour, I knew it was the place for my son. The security, the cleanliness, and the professional demeanor of the staff was enough...the curriculum, and the many activities that are included were a bonus. My son is even learning Spanish! I encourage anyone facing the challenge of finding a quality childcare center to visit. I guarantee you will be impressed.”—S.M
“it was so hard for me to go back to work after having my baby, but the people here made it so easy and made me feel so comfortable, that it was no doubt that our second baby was going to go here as well. My boys learn so much each day and are always so happy to go to school every morning. I feel so lucky to have TLE as part of our family.”—Dorothy Weisblatt
“The Learning Experience has been an amazing opportunity for my son and daughter to learn, socialize, and play. Every teacher is matched perfectly to the needs of each developmental age, we have loved every one of them. Both of my children have developed a love of learning thanks to the wonderful curriculum and enthusiastic teachers. I am so glad I chose the learning experience as their school. I know that my children, as well as every child there, are loved and cared for every day by staff that loves to teach.”—Donna Thiele
“My son had only been taken care of by family, but I knew it was time to bring him to a school setting. TLE is more than I expected! He's blossomed there with all of the socializing opportunities, but I'm blown away with the curriculum they use! So happy with my decision to send him here!”—Kerri
“My grandson Matty has been attending TLE since September of 2014. In the few short months he has been there, we've been so surprised and excited at how he's grown. Both socially & academically. While visiting over the holidays, he couldn't wait to show us his school and introduce us to his new friends. We were so impressed with his excitement at going to school everyday. TLE is doing a phenomenal job and we know our daughter and son-in-law made the right choice in sending our grandson there. ”—Valerie Farrington
“Back in October of 2013 we had a horrifying experience at a previous daycare. I almost wanted to quit my job and stay home to take care of my son because of it. Then we found The Learning Experience in Centereach. It is the ONLY daycare that I feel comfortable bringing my son to every day. My son has thrived since he has been there, he has come out of his shell in the classroom due to the wonderful teachers. We don't even refer to it as "daycare" but we refer to it as "school". To us and to my son that is what it is...TLE is a place to learn, have fun with friends and feel loved, supported and encouraged. Deb is the best we could ask for in an owner! If there is ever an issue, small or large, or a reasonable accommodation, she is right there to help out and make everything better. She is extremely hands on and that is what makes the center run so well. In one month our newborn will be joining the TLE family and I will send him there without hesitation, and the promise of knowing...(Read More)”—Christina Coscia-Turturro
“It's never easy leaving your young child in the care of others while you go off to work - but when you're able to walk into a daycare center that makes you feel like you're part of a family, it makes your day so much better. We have been part of The Learning Experience family for over a year now and it's so comforting to walk into the center where everyone knows you & your whole family; and welcomes you every morning & afternoon. We are lucky to have found such a safe & friendly environment for our little girl - and that doesn't even touch on the amazing education she receives each day - we are amazed on a daily basis when we discover all that she's learned!”—Alison Wong

“Both of my grandsons go here, as much as I wish I lived closer to watch the boys, I feel they learn so much more here at TLE. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable I feel my grandsons are developing in such a wonderful way. I am very happy my daughter found such great care for my little loves.”—Henryka
“Both of my sons are so happy to go to school each morning. The Learning Experience is an excellent child daycare, I feel at ease that my kids are safe and good hands.”—Scott
“We now have our 2nd son as a student at TLE for the past 2 1/2 years and his older brother was a student there for 2 years as well. With a combined total of nearly 5 years of experience with TLE as our providers, we have only immensely positive feedback to offer. My oldest child went to several other day cares when she was little as we never found the right fit and were not living in the vicinity of TLE at the time. When it came time in our lives to seek daycare arrangements for our 1st son, and being new to this area, we were prepared for an exhaustive search and tours of various day cares. TLE was first on our list as they were very accommodating to meet with us quickly for a tour. Believe it or not, having past experiences with day care for my oldest child, we walked out knowing we didn't need to look any further. We immediately enrolled and have never questioned our decision. My sons have always loved to go to TLE and while (from past experiences) some daycares are...(Read More)”—janice egan
“When looking around for a daycare for our oldest son, my wife and I had 4 daycares lined up one day, with the Learning Experience being the first of the day. After being given a tour, and meeting staff, my wife and I agreed that this was the place for our son. 5 years on, and our youngest now attends TLE, and is doing great! Everyone is really nice, professional, and on point with the children.”—Charlie L.

TLE has our highest recommendation.”—Mike Rubenstein

“My two nephews have come to this daycare since they were 4 months old. After seeing the facility while picking the boys up one day, I knew this was the best place for them to go. Not only would they have the chance to interact with all the other children, but they have such a wonderful curriculum and knew that they will be in great hands. Now my nephews are 2 1/2 and 16 months and I still feel the same way. There is no better place for my little dudes than TLE.”—Roman
