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 I feverishly toured five different daycare centers/pre-schools after my nanny quit the first day (realizing immediately that I needed to rely on a team, not just one caregiver), entering TLE Doylestown was like walking down Main Street in Disney World: Bright colors, sparkling floors and a big elephant mascot name Bubbles to greet the kids. My oldest was intrigued by the smart board (to him it was a giant iPad) and my youngest was greeted with warm arms that would soon rock him to sleep countless times each day. The curriculum impressed me (isn't every parent worried their kid will already be behind on the first day of Kindergarten?) and the owner, director and teachers have become part of the village that helps raise my children. At the end of the day I know they are with good people who care about them and support my parenting style and that is priceless. ”—Jessica Magoch
“ “Being a first time mom finding a day care was very stressful. To top things off the first place I went to was not a good experience. Then I meet Jen Eckfield and her team at TLE in Doylestown. What an amazing group! Between the wonderful communication that Mindi supplies weekly to the friendly smiles and love of the teachers, this girl felt at home. We consider them our extended family and family they are. I feel comfortable going right to Jen and talking about everything! The staff at TLE are warm and caring in so many ways that I can’t list them out but just ask me if you need to know!” ”—Lisa Walters
“Upon visiting the Infant B room, I knew that TLE Doylestown was the ideal "home away from home" for my one year old daughter, Keira. The immaculate classroom is filled with color, crafts, and a diverse and stimulating selection of books, toys, and age-appropriate activites. Keira is smiling and excited when we greet her teachers at drop-off and equally so at pick-up, as she is being cuddled while giggling or marching around the room very busy at play. I receive a detailed report of her day, during which she often plays outside and ventures to "make believe boulevard" for puppet shows and imaginative play. Watching Keira grow in the care of Miss Jenna and Miss Ally, and having warm and open communication with Jennifer and Mindi has made our TLE experience absolutely wonderful. I cannot recommend this center highly enough. It has surpassed all of my (very high) expectations.”—Doran
“I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the work you guys put into your facility and caring for my needs as a parent, as crazy as it can be sometimes :) you guys are so quick to address any issues, and never confuse me when it comes to payments- tuition- updates- etc... You guys are so on it, it's impressive. Sometimes I catch myself not worrying at all about Isabella because I know the girls know her schedule and personality like the back their hand, and I have no fears! She lovessss her teachers, its heart warming. Craig and I discussed moving in the future and I honestly 100% told him we can only relocate as long as Isabella continues in The learning Experience anywhere else. Just wanted to remind you guys of how awesome you are and how much you are appreciated in our household. I put in a good word for you guys any time I talk about my daycare. WE LOVE YOU GUYS.”—Fi
“My son has been coming to The Learning Experience for almost 6 months now and we love it! It is a bit delayed but has shown so much improvement since attending here. His teacher Miss Sam has been amazing with him and is always so welcoming and accommodating not only to his needs, but to us as parents as well! The owner and director also have been wonderful. Keep up the excellent work!”—Elaina Adelman
“Being educators, we realize the importance for a solid foundation of academic and social skills, while at the same time providing fun and engaging activities for our boys in a safe environment. The TLE family provides all of this on a daily basis. We are beyond impressed with the learning and enjoyment our boys experience every day as a result of the dedication and hard work of the staff. Thank you for all you do.”—Kevin & Bonnie Schmidt
“Being new to the whole Childcare world, I was very scared about leaving my children there, let alone my baby who cannot talk to express himself just yet. As time goes on, and he blows my kisses "buh bye" I know I made the right choice by picking TLE of Doylestown!! The owner , and teachers are amazing and they treat your children like your own! Within the first week, my son was doing "more" in sign language!! ”—Laura N
“My daughter had a nanny and when she moved away we decided to enroll her at TLE in Doylestown. It has been a wonderful and she is excited to go to school every day! Her teacher really cares and my daughter adores her. The entire staff are so compassionate and they communicative. For example, I am a working mom and have had to travel quite a bit lately. When I dropped my daughter off I was very emotional because I wouldn't see her for a few days. The owner saw me and really empathized. She sent me pictures of my daughter playing and laughing and that really cheered me up while I was traveling! I would recommend TLE to any parent!”—Katy Lofgren
“I was blessed with a very long maternity leave of close to 5 months, which made it even harder to leave my son at daycare my first day back at work. I had just gotten used to my own routine as a first time mom and was really just learning what my son's needs and schedule were myself! Having Johanna as my son's primary teacher feels like having a personal nanny! TLE has accommodated my use of cloth diapers and wipes, follows my son's very frequent eating schedule, and welcomes me warmly when I come in to nurse him each day. I truly feel as though all of the staff and teachers are working with me to make sure my son is loved, happy, and secure while he is away from me. ”—Susan G.
“This is a fantastic place. The staff are great. I highly recommend. We moved to the Doylestown area recently and had to switch daycare facilities for our 11-month-old little girl. It has turned out wonderfully this regard. We are very pleased thus far. It's a great environment.”—Kevin Hissler
“We started going to TLE last summer. Their staff is awesome. Every single teacher that I met is very caring and compassionate. They are all about education, teach sign language, Spanish and manners :) how cute is that?! If there was ever any issue Jen (the super sweet owner) had 3 words for me "we got it" and they really did! I'm getting daily reports and updates from them about new things my son learns each day. It feels like I'm leaving him with my family every morning, that's how great they are. They are so much better and way advanced than the old daycare we went to. I can't speak highly enough of them. I see them cleaning and disinfecting every evening, which explains why the building is always sparkling clean. My son loves seeing his teachers and friends everyday and I could'n be any happier for him. I highly recommend them, really!”—Lali
“Words really cannot do justice to how important TLE is to our family. Our 6 year old daughter is in after school care as is one of our 4 year old twin sons. Our other twin son attends full time. The teachers and directors are AMAZING. All our kids love going and believe me, we would know if they didn't! 2 of our little ones have ASD and the team has been so accommodating and genuinely supportive. It's takes a huge weight off my heart to have the kids in such a loving, healthy environment.”—Tiffany Schaible
“Our son has attended The Learning Experience for about 8 months after moving from another school where we had a bad experience. This place has been night and day compared to his previous school--we all absolutely love this school. Our son has high functioning autism primarily related to issues with socialization, and from day one at this school the teachers and staff made him feel welcome and helped him make friends. The kids in his class go out of their way to help our son because the staff and teachers create a very positive environment. He's really grown by leaps and bounds at TLE as where we felt his development had basically stalled out at his previous school. Also, the TLE owner Jennifer Eckfield is absolutely fantastic, and while staff turnover at any preschool is going to be high, she makes sure that she hires quality people and holds them to a high standard for performance. The school also does tons of great activities like free concerts for kids in the summer, vendor...(Read More)”—Dan Shapiro
“We couldn't be more grateful to all of you for all the love and patience you showed our little man. He has truly become an entirely different kid in the time he's spent with you, and that is all thanks to you. When I look back and think of the daycares that couldn't be bothered, I can't believe we were so blessed to find you. We were told he was violent, and you said he was overstimulated. We were told he refused to follow directions, and you said he struggled to sit for long periods. We were told he was a bad kid, and you said he was a wonderful kid with a big heart. There is no way to express what it means to us to have had you in our lives. I could not imagine a world where he could have been successful and loved, and now I believe he has a big bright future in front of him. We are so excited to start this new chapter of our lives, but my heart is breaking to say goodbye to this family. Thank you for your time, your patience, your love, and the immeasurable kindness...(Read More)”—Marissa Gillette
“I wanted to take a minute and let you know how excited I am about the twaddler room. I was very nervous about Logan moving up and transitioning, mostly because he has become very attached to Cindy over the past year and I wasn't sure how he'd do in a new environment. Tee, Roz and Melissa are awesome. They have made the new room a great experience. Every morning he runs right to the purple door, goes in and starts playing without any hesitation. I'm not there during the day but I can only believe that it is the great job they are doing that makes him so comfortable. I've sat in the room for a few minutes on several occasions and it amazes me how well structured they have the classroom with all those little ones. They definitely exert patience, love and guidance to the kids. We are excited about the new year and thrilled to have Tee back at TLE. ”—Carrie Poust
“ Love TLE! We have been there 6 months and have enjoyed taking our daughter there every day. She loves her teachers- who are so nice and attentive. They have already taught our child so much. The front desk is very friendly and the owner is very involved. I'm always amazed how they remember everyone's name. My wife and I feel very comfortable leaving our daughter in their hands each day. TLE is a very friendly and safe atmosphere, we highly recommend. ”—Conor Proud
“ TLE at Doylestown is beyond awesome! We started both our kids at TLE when it opened 3 years ago. We were the 3rd or 4th family with them. We couldn't have asked for a better place for caring of our kids than TLE. The staff and teachers are absolutely wonderful and we feel so much like a family. My son recently graduated their full-time Kindergarten and he made some great friends there. The foundation that the teachers created for him has made him what he is today today both academically and socially. There have been days when the kids don't want to come home because they enjoy it so much there. Jennifer, the owner makes everyone feel like her family and we can always trust her and the staff with our kids. We Love TLE! ”—Darshana P.
“The Learning Experience has been such a blessing to our family. We transferred here from another school because we were looking for a full time kindergarten program for my oldest son. I was nervous about making the switch, but it was the best decision we have ever made. I didn't know what a school could really be like until we were at TLE. The entire staff is absolutely wonderful, caring, and nurturing. This has become the home away from home for my boys, and we feel like part of a family. They have an incredible educational program! I recommend TLE to all my friends, family and neighbors. Thanks to Jen Eckfield and her entire staff for embracing our family!”—Kristin M.
“My three children have been in childcare programs since infancy and two programs prior to finding a home at TLE Doylestown. While I have been blessed with competent care throughout my kids development, I have to say TLE Doylestown is truly a special place for families. The owner, Jen Eckfield, does not just aim to create a safe, loving and developmentally engaging program for children, she creates a sense of community - really an extended family - of the directors, teachers and other parents.”—Tiffany S.
“Can't say enough! TLE Doylestown is hands down the best! We moved our wee one from another provider to this location. She is learning, and finally happy, she looks forward to going which was a huge change. The staff conduct themselves professionally and honestly care about the kids. Check your email, they will keep you in the loop and you will always know what is happening! TLE Doylestown provide extra fun activities for the whole family like Lolly and Jo Jo! This will be our last school year which makes me very sad. I hope they will allow her to come back to summer camp every year as their summer camp program is top notch! Thanks TLE Doylestown! You are the best!!”—Terri E.
“In January 2016 we were desperate to find a new child care facility for our son, as we were in fear for his safety where he was. The moment I called The Learning Experience they made us feel like part of their family! Both the Director and Owner assured us that they would make room for our son immediately due to the situation we were in, they assured me that he would have the best care. Those were all words of course and at that point it was difficult to trust however I can say now...they have stood by every one of them and we are extremely grateful for all their patience and love! We would highly recommend TLE and are honored to be a part of their family!”—Malena L.
“Our son has attended TLE in Doylestown for almost two years and we couldn't be more pleased. Not only is the staff accommodating & nurturing; they truly care about the parents, children and each other. The owner, Jennifer Eckfield, has created a family environment. You know that when you drop your child/children off, that they truly care about each one and that the TLE team will take care of them and help develop them into thriving little people.”—Lindsey D.
“Jen, the owner and her staff have the utmost care for their children there. I trust my child to go there whole-heartedly and know that they always have his best interest in mind. Great loving school. Highly recommended. I know its difficult to trust people with your children but this is the place for a great education with loving care!”—Reggie R.
“The Learning Experience is a wonderful place to send your children. I send my special needs son there so he can be with the other children and interact in a setting outside of the home and they are so accommodating and friendly there and he has shown so much improvement since sending him there in February. They are very flexible and have never had a problem with having his EI therapists come and work with him in the classroom. They send me pictures of him having a good time and I really feel comfortable with the owner, director, and all of the staff!”—Elaina A.
“I absolutely love TLE Doylestown! I cannot imagine my girls anywhere else because this is way more than a school or a daycare center. TLE, Doylestown is truly an extended family. The owner, directors, and staff are exceptional. I am a teacher, so I value education and learning "the academics", but what is more valuable in today's world is learning how to become a person full of love, compassion, empathy, cooperation, responsibility, forgiveness, and the essential values of life. This is the priceless education my girls get each and every day coupled with the fantastic curriculum. I will never be able to express my gratitude to the TLE family enough. My kids deserve the BEST and that is just what we have---- the BEST!!!! Thank you, TLE Doylestown!!!”—Brittanie A Kruegel
“The teachers are AMAZING! They all love my children like they are their own. They teach the whole child and truly have become a part of our family!!! I wouldn't have my children at any other center!! ”—Kim Devlin
“So they saying “it starts at the top,” this is the most accurate statement that can be used when describing TLE. Jen Eckfield is the owner of The Learning Experience in Doylestown, and she sets the bar high….Every. Single. Day. Philip (my 4yr old) started TLE when he was 6 months. I was lucky and blessed enough to be finishing with one company at the end of my maternity leave and had a 3-month hiatus before starting with a new company. I hit the jackpot… I got to be a “working mom” who got 6 months at home with her newborn. Like every other mom, the fact that I knew I was going to have to put my son - my perfect little human being who was connected to my hip (and boob) every second of the day – in daycare… absolutely killed me. But, I had to do it. My husband and I had made the decision to live in Doylestown and save what we can and provide a beautiful life for our children… and that costs money…so, I work. I had been to other places that frankly scared the hell out of me....(Read More)”—Lyndsey DiGiacomo
