They also are really engaged in the community and with the families. At least once a month, there is a community activity happening like a fall festival, visit with Santa, Easter Egg Hunt and more. My two and four year old love going there during the week and the weekend activities are just a bonus.
He is now in the toddler room and he is thriving! Hes counting to 10, hes learning sign language, he know all the parts of the face, I cant tell you how many times I have woken up to a little finger in my eye and a little voice saying "eyes"....I love it because I KNOW hes learning. And they are beginning potty training (for toddlers showing signs of being ready)! I had mentioned that I wanted to start one day and they were so willing to help me which is great because they are with him more in the day than me. Their willingness to jump in and help me was great because training a child that's only 20 months old can be a major challenge. But they seem ready!!
Not only is the staff great but so are the owners and directors and owners! They are amazing they know EVERY child and are there to great us with a hello and goodbye everyday. They are flexible and understanding and do not mind talking to me if I need help with anything. Which I love
Overall TLE chantilly has been great for me and my family you can tell there is a lot of love, fun and learning happening.
If you are looking for a school for your children look no further TLE Chantilly is the school for you :)
The staff here has been great! And our daughter has really taken to her teachers - Ms. Jessica & Ms. Luz!
I love how TLE combines play and learning. My son is going to be more than ready for Kindergarten in a few years. He already knows how to use a Smartboard!
My four year old is learning and reading, and really enjoys school. He has an allergy and they are very good about attending to his needs and making sure his allergy is taken care of. He is engaged and challenged and loved at school. His teachers care about him and he loves his friends in his class. They do a lot of projects that include stuff from home which makes my kid feel more at home at school.
The teachers and directors really care about my boys. As a single working mother, they are there for my kids when I am at work. The center provides the love, care, and learning during the day hat I wish I could provide my kids, but can't-- because I have to work. All at an affordable rate!
We've been enrolled in other programs and other centers, TLE is by far the most professional, caring, warm environment I have experienced in this area.
I am extremely happy with my choice to go with TLE. My son used to attend home day care prior to that and in addition he was little shy, so I was little concerned about him adjusting to a bigger place. Teachers at TLE made him very comfortable right from day 1 and now he actually looks forward to being in preschool everyday. He is also picking up reading, writing and numbers really fast. In addition TLE also organizes lot of in-school activities which keeps it interesting for kids.
Bottom line is that my son loves TLE and so do I.
Another thing I like about TLE is they bring in great stuff for the kids! At least once or twice a month, there's a new activity or event the kids are being exposed to -- a dentist coming in and teaching them about teeth care, a local farmer bringing his animals, special events for holidays, and more.
Miss Jenn from day 1 has welcomed our daughter with care and open arms. She made her feel comfortable, and was very attentive to her after we explained our nightmare experience with a previous daycare. Our daughter never cried and was so happy from day 1!! She even went as far as to take pictures and email them to us through the next few days to show us that she was having a good time. Actually, we still get pictures every time they have a special event at school. Cant explain enough how comforting it was to us as well our daughter. The teachers and staff are flexible and accommodating to each child. Every morning we see how happy they are to have our daughter and every afternoon we get an update for the day.
The facilities, bathrooms, classrooms, toys, and playground are always clean and sanitized if need be. The facility has what they call a make believe boulevard which is like an indoor playground with a ball pit, slide, puppet show space, and pretend buildings. The facility has a multipurpose room which contains a smartboard for additional class learning activities. They believe in kids getting fresh air so they contain a system which constantly filters and circulates outside air. They have 2 playgrounds; one for older kids and one for younger kids. Secure entrance to the building is only allowed by a key fob and sign in/out of children is done via computer with pin numbers to keep a history for students.
Curriculum, classroom books, toys, and activities are tailored to appropriate age groups. Every week there is a new LEAP workbook for students to work in, where they focus on specific subjects every week. In addition to workbook and various art activities, they also learn sign language and spanish.
An interesting thing they do is bring outside kid affiliated organizations for activities. For example: a farmer came to read to them with his pig, a fitness/sports organization, and a photography company that had a bunny come in to take pictures with the kids.
Lunches and snacks are healthy and fun for kids.
Not only are they thoughtful of children but they keep parents in mind. They have parents night out or Mommy days where they provide a few hours of childcare for a minimal fee. Family events such as having an Easter egg hunt recently. On occasion they provide a quick breakfast for parents in the mornings.
I can't express enough how happy we are with TLE Chantilly. It is a family feel which seems lost the days, the education and facility are fantastic, and most importantly our daughter loves it there!!
Facilities/Security: Pulling up in the parking lot of TLE, you are immediately impressed by the building; the entrance colors and logo are very inviting. It gets even better once you go inside. The facility (granted it's brand new), is impeccable; lots of vibrant colors, information and labels at every angle for parents and the children. You aren't getting in without a key FOB or someone buzzing you in. That's critical for keeping the children and staff safe. The front desk offers an easy way to check your kids in and out every day. The main office has a camera system, so you can check in your child without disrupting them in their class, which is especially nice during that first day/week as they get acclimated. This system also allows the center director and other staff to have eyes on what's going on throughout the building at all times. ESSENTIAL! Each classroom is also very inviting and fully equipped with the essentials to create a home away from home environment for the children. As a toddler, my daughter has the space to move around freely with her friends in the toddler classroom and it has a variety of learning toys, games, books, other essentials to keep the kids active and engaged throughout the day. Every detail was considered. The multi-purpose room, outdoor playground and "Make Believe Boulevard" are also welcomed components to the center and supporting the center's curriculum. A+
Curriculum: The fact that TLE has a proprietary curriculum was also a huge plus as we considered coming on board. Each day of every week, parents can feel confident that their child is learning and developing in all the right ways. Lesson plans for my toddler include building skills in the areas of sensory/touch reading, art, music/motion, manners/feelings, etc. She's also learning sign language and Spanish in her classroom, and getting exposed to history, culture and all kinds of new things in ways that are fun and creative. We don't have to worry about if or what my child is learning. We have comfort because we KNOW she is learning. The curriculum and lesson plans are posted each week so you can stay informed, and with the evaluation and feedback mechanisms that are in place, a parent always has ready access to know how their child is doing on a day to day basis. A+
Teachers/Staff: The staff at the TLE has been a huge part of our positive experience thus far, namely the center's business manager/owner, Mrs. Jennifer V. Mrs. Jennifer works very hard to ensure the center is up and running and that the parents and the teachers and staff have the support they need. Jennifer provided me my first tour of the center, and her passion about the center was just refreshing. It is clear that this is center is more than a business for she. She cares about the kids, what they are learning and she does a fantastic job engaging the parent's day in and day out. The center Director, Ms. Jackie is also a welcomed addition to the center. She engages the children on their level and is readily available to address any questions or concerns a parent may have. As for the teaching staff, there has been some turnover with the teaching staff since we arrived. I believe this is mostly due to the center being new and teachers not being used to working in a new, growing center environment. While changing teachers doesn't provide maximum stability for the kids, I feel the leadership has dealt with this challenge with excellence and professionalism. They have done a great job of communicating teacher changes with the parents as soon as they occur, and seem to be working diligently to maintain high standards in the classrooms as teacher transitions are made. I cannot over emphasize how valuable the level of communication has been on all levels. The leadership even takes the time to send pictures on occasion of my child doing various activities during the day. It's those little things that go a long way! A
Overall we love TLE! My daughter smiles every day when we drop her off. She loves her teachers, and TLE friends. She hesitates to leave every day. She learning and growing by leaps and bounds. The center is very reasonably priced for all they offer, especially in comparison to other children's learning centers in the Northern
Ms. Jennifer, the owner, is a hands-on manager, who knows every child at her center and helps cater to child's individual needs on a daily basis. She is a very kind, friendly person, who loves kids. And of course, kids love her back!
Ms. Jackie, the director, is an experienced child-care professional with a passion for early childhood education. She loves working with kids and very responsive to any parental feedback.
Overall, we are very satisfied with this center. It offers the best price/quality ratio in our area.
Like many other reviewers, I am very pleased with TLE in Chantilly. I feel like my child's primary purpose there is to learn and be nurtured, not just to be fed and babysat. They have a great curriculum and lunch/snack program that are supported by a national company. My child has art every day as well as outside or "gym" time that are both very appreciative. Their Make Believe Boulevard area is a real treat. All of the staff have been great with my child. Since they are relatively new, the number of children is still small. However, the owners are always very present and work well with the director. They are very communicative and take the time to send photos of special activities. Even though we stay within the regular hours, I never feel pressured if I get stuck in traffic or scowled at if my child is the last one there. It is not easy to be a full-time mom in this area and commute in this traffic, but I feel very supported by the staff at TLE and know my child is well-cared for when I cannot be with him.
