We enrolled our 2 year old daughter at TLE back in August 2020. This was the first time we had to seek care for our daughter outside of our family and as you can imagine, we were anxious to do so. After communicating with several centers and not finding a place that could meet our needs, we came across TLE from a neighbor's recommendation. I sent an email on a Saturday expecting to not hear back until Monday, but to my surprise received an email that day from the owner Sara. She was very helpful and prompt with us. We were able to come in early that next week for a limited tour of the facility, one thing that we were denied from other centers due to covid. We met with Jen who was very knowledgeable and kind!! She reviewed the daily schedule with us and answered all of our questions. The center was very clean and the staff we met were all wonderful! We signed her up that day. Since day one she has loved "going to school" there and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about TLE! They also keep us up-to-date with the online app they use to show our daughter's day which is great! We get updates throughout the day on when/what she eats, her activities, nap time and even pictures of her playing/smiling. She has shown such growth there as well! She recognizes colors and letters, comes home singing new songs and using new words. I would recommend TLE for any family looking for a center for their child!

Our daughter has loved every minute at TLE. The teachers are great and they really care about the kids and their learning. She comes home blabbing away about how great her day was every evening!

We chose The Learning Experience Fort Collins as the daycare for our first child. Knowing he was going to daycare at just 4 months old, I toured many facilities and knew that TLE was the place for us. The Center Director, Jen, was so helpful in making me feel comfortable as I made my decision and was available for any questions throughout our decision process. That, combined with the clean facility and the curriculum they have for the kids even starting in the infant class, are what made our decision easy. His first week the staff was so warm and supportive, though it was still hard to leave him they made it so much easier. They work closely with us to make sure that we're in sync with his needs and are respectful of really taking our lead in care.

Both of my kids are here and we love and highly recommend TLE for amazing child care and preschool in Fort Collins. Staff is caring and kind, handling behaviors with love and a parent/teacher partnership. As an educator myself, I have high expectations for child care, enrichment opportunities, professionalism, and care of my children. TLE is excellent and we are happy to be a part of their family.

Highly recommend TLE! The staff is professional, caring, and really in-tune with my son. They have always been proactive if problems arise, everything from diaper rash to correcting biting. Communication has been great too. I have complete peace of mind that my son is well taken care of, having fun, and learning lots at TLE.

My daughter has thrived here. However the communication from the admin team is not professional.

My son has absolutely thrived here! He is very shy and they are so good with getting him out of his shell! The teachers are incredible and we are so grateful for them! Also very impressed with their cleanliness during this difficult time I never have to worry about exposure!

My kids have been in childcare since 2 months old, and we had terrible luck with them, until now. The curriculum that this place is offers is only a bonus to having the most amazing staff. I NEVER worry about my kids and if they are being taken care of. The staff is like family. What my kids have leaned from them is amazing! Me and my husband both work full time, and always felt guilty about leaving our kids full time with someone else, until we found the TLE. We know they are in the best, most capable hands when not with us. We are grateful for the TLE, so grateful.

Since we called TLE to request information about their programs everyone was so helpful and super nice! Then we visited TLE and we noticed that everyone was so professional and really nice not only to our daughter but for the whole family as well. Ever since we are pleased to have enrolled our daughter at TLE. We absolutely recommend it! Awesome place!

We love it at TLE! All the teachers and admin are so nice and friendly and greet you when you enter the building and/or classroom. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm.

Our girls absolutely love it at TLE and look forward to going to "school" every morning. They even get "mad" when its time to go home (most days). ;) Watching our girls grow and blossom has been such a blessing and incredible. Watching our girls bond and connect with their teachers and friends is so heart warming and comforting knowing my girls are in good hands and safe. ;)

I love that they have an Ipad in the classroom that they use to take pics for the app that you can follow every day and see pictures of them learning, growing and building relationships with their friends and teachers. It helps to see pictures of our girls and what they're doing all do, along with how well they nap and all their diaper changes. It's great!

This is the first center our girls have gone to and they love it! We wouldn't trade it for anything! ;)

We love TLE! We have been going here for almost 2 years now and can honestly say that our daughter has thrived in her environment. She is always excited to go to "school" (we call it school rather than daycare) - well MOST days. She is a toddler! :)

I love the fact that they do art almost every day with the kids (even in the infant room!), the fact that they teach and encourage sign language at a very young age and the fact that the facility is clean. Not to mention the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. I also love that they have Ipads in the classrooms where they give you updates throughout the day of what your child is doing and most days they even attach pictures of your child interacting (upon permission of the parents of course).

My husband and I toured a total of 4 facilities in our area before we selected TLE and we have no regrets.

Our daughter has received superior care since her first day over a year ago. I trust she is safe and know she is having fun while learning with interactive curriculum. The owner is amazing! She's present and always welcoming. The friendly staff are outgoing and the curriculum rocks! What more can I say!! In the words of my 5 yr old, "It's the best!".

We love the Learning Experience. I am at ease when I drop my daughter off every morning knowing she is in great hands. The teachers take interest in the kids, they really are in-tuned to what is going on at all times. The curriculum is programmed to their age groups and we love that she learns sign language and participates in Yoga! I would recommend this facility to anyone who is looking for high quality day care for their children.

Great place and care. Gives you great peace of mind to send your kids to a place with people you trust. Our kids enjoy and look forward to going to school everyday and always have so much to tell about their day when they come home. Owner and director do a great job and are always very open to suggestions and make family satisfaction a priority. Teachers are wonderful and care a lot about the kiddos. Definitely recommend.

I love this school, teachers and the admin staff. My son is ahead of kids his age from the care, kindness and teaching of everyone he comes in contact with at TLE. Most importantly he is treated as if he is family and I feel assured with the care he receives.

I'm so glad my time with this school is coming to an end. They have been so unprofessional... Blurting out my financial information in a packed lobby, lying about having a graduation that was never planned and raising my rates without any notice and never providing me with a new price list to show everyone's rates got increased and not just mine. Finding out my daughter was pushed down the slide by another students only because I happened to show up early to pick her up, which never ended in having an accident report written up. She came home with scratches down the side of her face! It makes me wonder what else happens at that school that I don't know about! I would not recommend this school to anyone.

We enrolled our daughter when she was almost one-year-old at the center for assistance with summer care and were very pleased with the development that she received in the couple of months that she was there. We had been working on sign language with her and it didn't seem to click until her time at the center. She loved all of her friends in the infant class and was always excited to see her teachers. We loved that we were always greeted with a friendly smile from Sarah and Jodie and that the staff knew all of our names from day one! Although we are no longer at the center, we were very sad to go and cannot say enough about the people or the curriculum. We will definitely re-enroll when our daughter is preschool age.

TLE is our new family! My two year old has been here since it opened and we couldn't be happier! Literally not one complaint. Such a boring review!! Five stars for Sara and the TLE team.

I could not be happier with TLE! The staff is great and I always feel informed. They have amazing enrichment programs. They are building an amazing foundation for my little man! I would recommend them to absolutely anyone.
