Superior Proprietary Curriculum

All included in our tuition
Superior Proprietary Curriculum

Our unique programs are based upon years of research and early childhood education experience and that is why we pride ourselves on offering both excellent academic programming as well as a variety of enrichment programs all included in our tuition.

The Learning Experience is extremely proud of our proprietary curriculum, L. E. A. P, or The Learning Experience's Academic Program. At TLE we realize that how children learn is as important as what they learn and encourage each child to achieve success while acquiring invaluable social skills. L. E. A. P. is broken into three separate stages based on age and development beginning with Little Learners and progressing through L. E. A. P. 1 and L. E. A. P. 2.

Our schools are divided into classrooms based on age and development beginning with our state-of-the-art infant rooms. From there, children advance into the Toddlers, Twaddlers, Preppers, Preschool, Pre-K and Kindergarten programs.

Customer Testimonials

We love The Learning Experience! We were one of the first families to enroll at TLE. Almost six years ago our daughter started in the Infant room when she was 12 weeks old. Now, she is in the 1st grade, but still attends the TLE After-school program. She has been enrolled at TLE every year and we have enjoyed watching her participate in each of their programs. So much so that we also enrolled her younger sister who is now three. The facility is always clean and our girls love the outdoor playground and Make-Believe Blvd! The staff is great at communicating both verbally and with written reports. TLE is continually making improvements and implementing new ideas. I would highly recommend The Learning Experience to any family looking for a loving, caring place to send their little ones!!


I can honestly say I love working at TLE, I love the families, I love my coworkers and most of all I love the kids! This is the best place for your child! My boss Mrs. Kody and Mrs. Charniese are not only the BEST but they are like my second family and I love them and the center they work so hard to make perfect! If you don’t believe me come see for your self, enroll your kids!!


We love The Learning Experience! Both our daughters go here and are very happy. They emphasize education and I am always impressed with what my daughter learns there.


My 3 girls have been attending TLE for the last few years. It has been an amazing experience for each of them. They started as infants and my oldest just graduated from preschool. Kody and Janna do a great job of running the center and I know my oldest is sad to leave for kindergarten. Ms Lee, Ms Sarah, Ms Erin, Ms Melissa, and Ms Kate have been wonderful and caring to all my girls. I know they are not only learning, but loved and cared for by all of their teachers each day we drop them off. We have been so impressed that we have referred numerous friends!! Thank you to the staff and teachers for creating such a fantastic environment for all the kids at TLE!


We have been with the Learning Experience for several years now- we think the Director Kody is doing an amazing job, the parents love her, and it appears she is running a tight ship. Our son has has an amazing experience, and is now in the Preschool room with Ms Lee who has a way about her that all the children love. She says she makes them WANT to listen to her. She is kind, caring, soft spoken, and gently guides each child. I'm sad yet excited for my son's graduation today. Thank you Kody, Ms Lee, Ms Erin, Ms Melissa, and all the other wonderful teachers my son has enjoyed along the way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will forever be grateful to your team. I know he is well prepared to take on kindergarten with confidence. And we will be back for play-days!
