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…
“When I went back to work from maternity leave two years ago, I was sad and nervous to be away from my 10 week old son, David. In spite of the fact that my husband and I had done careful research on local daycares before selecting The Learning Experience (TLE) as the obvious best choice in Orange County, New York -- I still couldn't help but wonder, "Will he be happy there while I'm at work? Will be feel loved and be tended to the way I would tend to him at home?" A short time after starting him in the Infant A classroom at the Monroe, New York location of TLE, it was very clear that the answers to all of my anxious questions were "YES!" David was cared for my Miss Karen and Miss Michelle -- who not only became a second set of mommies to him, but friends and good sources of advice for me. As a first time Mom, there was so much I didn't know! When should I increase the amount of formula he is drinking? When should I move from two solid meals a day to three? Karen and Michelle...(Read More)”—Vicki Hoffman
“Our son CJ needed a place to learn and grow and have fun so when a good friend recommended TLE we went to take a tour, we were immediately impressed with the center, teachers and the director, Lori. CJ walked into a classroom and went right over and sat at the table with the other children, we were sold! He is now 3 years old and is loving every minute of his day, we wouldn't send him anywhere else. We love TLE Monroe!”—Christie dunphy
“Everyday my husband & I are stunned on new vocabulary words that she utters. At the age of 2 1/2, she has mastered her colors, she is able to count 1 - 10 and now the alphabet. TLE never seize to amaze us with the wonderful teaching they do to the kids. This, by far, has been one of the best decisions we've made by placing her in TLE! As a parent, we would say that "It is all worth it!". Mary Mandawe TLE Monroe”—Mary Mandawe
“My daughter has attended TLE since she was 3 months old. I have been very impressed with the amount she has learned in the last 3 years. Unlike other child care centers, TLE has a curriculum, even for the little ones. She looks forward to going there every day and I feel very secure that she is getting best care possible.”—Carol
“Cameron has been attending TLE in Monroe since I went back to work when he was 9 weeks old. From the first time I walked in I have been comforted to know that he is spending the day with such amazing people. It is never easy for a first time mom to go back to work, but they made it incredibly easy. Miss Michele and Miss Karen treated Cameron like their own, and over the past 2 years the other wonderful women have done the same (most recently Miss Kristen)! As Cameron transitions up to the next room I know he will continue to grow and develop and learn in the best setting possible. ”—Breanne Chase

“Our Daughter have been attending TLE in Monroe NY for 6 months and it's the best decision we could have made for her and for us as a family. She is blossoming and learning so much in the little time that she has been there.

The teachers are more like family and really pay attention to the kids needs. Janine S TLE Monroe, NY”—janine Sferrazza
“It was a long road finding a center that fit our family but very much worth the wait. The front desk administrators and all of the teachers are enthusiastic while demonstrating care and relationship building with all of the children. My newborn started at just 3 months and I am thrilled with the infant staff; they are warm and nurturing and provide a level of essential comfort for parents. My eldest son has been at TLE Monroe for over 2 years. He has become very social with his classmates and comes home with the coolest projects! He’s learned his ABCs, state capitals and so much more – knocked the socks off of his pediatrician I might add… ha! I’ve recommended TLE to many people, all with happy results. Kudos to the entire TLE team! ”—Naomi Lopez

“My daughter has been going to TLE since she was 6 months old. She is now two years old and has been cared for by nurturing, responsible, and dedicated teachers in each room she has been in.

She is happy to go to school every day and it is reassuring for my husband and I to go to work each day knowing that she is in such capable hands. ”—Maria F.
“Both of my kids have attended The Learning Experience since they were three months old. It's so scary leaving such little ones anywhere, especially for long hours. But since the beginning, the TLE teachers, staff and administration have been great. Both my kids have gotten a phenomenal experience and were extremely prepared for what was ahead. The curriculum was both challenging and rewarding for them. I am so glad my kids were able to take advantage of the opportunity to be at TLE for their pre K experiences. They loved it!”—Lisa Gubernick

“My son, Ty Jones is 3 1/2 years old. He has been attending TLE in Monroe, NY for a little over 1 month. Ty is in the Preschool 1 program. In this short period of time he has learned so much. Most recently Ty was in my daughter Taylor's bedroom she is 10 years old. Taylor came to my husband and I to show us a recording she did of Ty. Well to say the least we were blown away. Ty was singing in it's entirety the lyrics to "God Bless America". This is the work of TLE. Thank You, to the Teachers Ms. Sandy and Ms. Patti. We were so amazed. We didn't even know Ty knew the words to God Bless America. We were so happy and proud of him. I sent the video to everyone I knew and they too were just as amazed as my husband and I. Wanting to know where he learned this at such a young age. I was proud to tell them TLE! Ty is learning so much from TLE, and this was truly a nice surprise. Thank goodness this was captured on video by our ten year old daughter so we can share with the TLE...(Read More)”—Deidre Jones
“Both of my girls attended TLC in Monroe, NY. I was a nervous mom and worried about leaving my girls in a day care. Looking back it was the best decision for my girls and for me. My oldest daughter Abby learned so much and became so independent. She was so prepared for Kindergarten and the transition into our school district was so smooth. The TLC staff was so warm and caring and took such good care of my girls and such good care of me too. I cannot begin to thank the staff, especially Pam and Donna for loving my girls as if they were their own. My girls still ask for them and we still visit. This will be my last year at TLC and I wouldn't trade the time or the memories. From my first drop off, to graduation day to putting my Kindergartener on the bus the first day and getting her off the bus the last day of first grade this year....each moment is such a milestone and I'm so grateful for the support of the staff at TLC. It takes a village, and I proud to say that they are a part of...(Read More)”—Randi Connolly

“My daughter has been attended TLE, Monroe, NY since last two years. She loves there as much as she loves to be at home. She learns many new vocabularies and maths everweek. She looks so excited when she wakes up in the morning while going to school to meet her favorite preschool teachers. When we had went to India last year, to attend a family wedding function, she missed her friends, a preschool teacher Ms. Krista and Ms. Lauren so much. She told almost to our family member that how much she loves to be with her friends and Ms. Krista. She always goes to school happily and comes back to home with a smiley face! As a parent, what else we expect from our kids and their school teachers!! I am so thankful to all TLE staff at Monroe. Special thanks to Ms. Krista, whose deep interest and love towards my little kid's growth makes me feel proud everyday for choosing such a great environment.
