As a proud Mom and grandmother when my daughter asked me to tour early learning centers for my granddaughter Keira I took it very seriously. Within an hour I had two pages of questions to ask regarding staff qualifications, nutrition, physical fitness, child safety and the curriculum. My daughter had done her research and the plan was for us to tour four accredited centers in our area. Our first tour was our last tour. As soon as we walked into the lobby of The Learning Experience we were impressed by how fun looking and clean everything was. Then as we were guided through the building it was obvious that the teachers here truly loved children and were enthusiastic and creative. Every question on my list was checked off before I even asked. Keira was signed up that very day and absolutely loves it. We are so very thankful and blessed to have found the next best place to home for our little girl.

So far my daughter has been there for two months and she loves it. The teachers are really awesome and you can definitely tell they genuine care for the children. Would absolutely recommend The Leaning Experience for anyone looking for a great daycare for the little ones that matter the most to us.

My daughter has been at TLE for over 2 years now and she loves it. She loves coming in each day and gives her teachers hugs. Everyone knows her by name and says hi. We have been very impressed with what she has learned. She learned her colors, shapes, animal sounds etc at a very young age. At 2 and a half she can already sing the whole alphabet and count to about 15. She loved the yoga program and comes home and practices yoga now all the time. TLE has also been very accomodating with her special diet as well. We love it here!

We love TLE, its location and staff. I'm glad we enrolled our son, he loves going to school and is really comfortable there. Compared to other daycares in the area, I don't think it is pricey as other reviews state. We previously had him in another facility and pulled him out. When we transferred him to TLE I was really happy with the quality care AND lower tuition.

Both of my kids have attended TLE. The teachers and staff have been wonderful. My kids love their teachers! I can't imagine taking them anywhere else.

Everyone seems to know each child's name when you walk in the door and they make you feel at home. Love how they work with the children and have special projects each day. My baby really seems to enjoy going each day! Highly recommend--- We've been going for a few months now and are loving TLE!

I feel like to be home when I step in to TLE with my daughter, everyone is so welcoming and they all know my daughters name... which make her happy. .. I moved her to another school bc of travel time for like 2 weeks and couldn't believe how bad my daughter and I missed this, after 2 weeks we decided to come back......and it feels like to be HOME... my daughter says to me "Mommy no more New School" which makes me even more comfortable that she is happy here..WORTH TRAVEL TIME IF MY ANGEL IS HAPPY

My daughter has been attending VPK as well as wrap around care at TLE for a little under a year now. I have been nothing but impressed with the management and staff. They truly care about the families of TLE and it is evident through daily interactions. I've also been very impressed with the education provided in VPK and the things that my 5 year old daughter tells me on our rides home. I highly recommend this center.

We love TLE! TLE provides the children with early learning skills, even in the infant room. The staff is extremely friendly and they all know my son’s name. My son LOVES the teachers and staff. The facility is always clean and the communication we receive has been great!

When I started looking for daycares for my 4 year old, I looked into TLE because it's close to my house. They have exceeded all my expectations and I love it! Best of all, my son loves it! Yes, it's a little expensive but it is worth it!

I LOVE LOVE TLE on Southside... My daughter has been here for a little over 2 yrs. She will be attending VPK and then heading to Kindergarten... I believe she will be well ahead of other children when she heads off. This school really impresses me when it comes to teaching and ensuring the child comes first! I would most definitely recommend anyone to come here as I feel very safe leaving my child in the hands of all the Staff here!

Thank you- Mrs. Dee, Mrs. Grace, Mrs. Laine... and ALL the other wonderful STAFF!

Maria Sanchez- Proud Mother!

When we moved here to Jacksonville , we were looking for a Preschool/day care center that would help my daughter to develop her social skills and improve her vocabulary. Throughout this 8 months, she has developed her skills so well. We are really impressed with the way they are imparting education through their LEAP programs

My daughter has been attending TLE since she was 3 months old and she is now in the Twaddlers classroom. There was a time when we considered moving her due to cost of care, however, we are so glad that we chose to stay! Yes, the cost is a little more than other care facilities, but the level of interaction and care given is unprecedented. We love her current teachers, Ms. Julie and Ms. Andrea and felt that they have really contributed to her growth and speech development. My daughter is excited every time she is dropped off and has grown very accustomed to the curriculum and routine which is both diverse and well-integrated. As a teacher, I have summers off. I appreciate that the owner is willing to work with my summer schedule to accommodate my needs during that time (not all care facilities are as flexible!) Overall, we are very happy with our experience at the facility and would highly recommend TLE to anyone considering a child care option.

My children have been at TLE since 2009 and we have been very happy. My oldest son was enrolled from the age of 1 through VPK, and my youngest son is now in the 2 year old classroom. We have always been happy with the quality of teachers at TLE. I have not had problems with teacher turnover. My kids have always been happy to go to school and have positive attitudes towards learning. When my son entered Kindergarten he was ahead of the curve educationally. I feel safe and confident with my children at TLE.

My daughter has been attending TLE for about 6 months now in the twaddlers classroom and we LOVE it. Phenomenal teachers, staff, and facility. She receives excellent care and we have noticed such a positive change in her social and educational development. She loves her teachers and looks forward to playing with them as well as her friends each day. Knowing that I can drop by to observe at any time on their security cameras without disturbing her class as well as receiving a detailed written report of her activities every single day gives me peace of mind. We are so glad that we chose this place to take care of our child!!

The schools has definitely exceeded my expectations. When I heard about TLE from a work colleague, I was excited about having such a great place close to home. They take great care of my daughter, she is almost 14 months now and has been there since she was 10 weeks old. They are very hands-on with their learning and help me navigate through parenting situations. As a new parent, I know I can count on them. Grace (the owner) really takes pride on having a great facility and follows every policy there is. She has been available when needed for discussions and advice, and addresses situations promptly.

I know my daughter is in great hands and I will definitely recommend the Southside TLE to all the families out there! - Nata Salvatori

Love, love, love this school!! My kids have been there since the infant room and we have been so pleased with the teachers in each classroom, the academic environment, the enrichment programs (yoga, soccer, etc), and the atmosphere. My kids NEVER cry when we arrive and often times do not want to leave. This center is great!! Take a tour and come see for yourself!!

Home away from home! I have three of my five kids at The Learning Experience full time and I couldn’t be happier! My family recently located from out of state and TLE has become our extended family. I have yet to meet a teacher at the facility that didn’t care for my children as if they were their own. The owner Grace is amazing to work with, she’s been there from day one to help answer any and all questions that I have. Drop off and pick up is so easy because my kids are so happy to see their teachers. The school is clean and the staff is truly caring. Our kids learn so much and the day is full with so many great activities. It is no surprise that when kids leave TLE they are miles ahead of other students. Go for a tour and see if yourself!

Great Pre-School and Family away from home. My two sons have been with The Learning Experience for almost two years. We have made rotation through almost every class and teacher in the facility. I have yet to meet one staff member that does't treat my children like their own. The Owner/Director Grace is phenominal to work with and is always available for questions and concerns. She loves that place and you can tell (often times sending late night emails to family regarding up and coming changes.) It always gives me peace of mind to hear my 4 year old say, "Mommy I love going to school." Makes leaving them there a little easier. The cirriculium is diverse and challenging. I love that they encourage parent participation. I feel like they are not only getting my child ready for Elementary School but getting us ready as parents too.
