It is a very good place to have children educated. They teach children their proprietary curriculum. Very happy to learn that 9 out of 10 kids learn to read before kindergarten. Previous owners could not run it property, but the new owners are doing a good job. It is worth checking out.

My wife and I just enrolled our two children here just recently. Both children were previously taken care of by a family member. The teachers are awesome and have made the transition seamless. Our children are excited about going to school everyday!!

We started TLE in September 2017 and TLE has been fantastic for my two children! My husband and I were a little nervous as our children were switching from a nanny to a daycare center, bit the TLE staff members have been supportive, caring and nurturing as needed. My older child is in their preschool program and he has learned so much! He's excited to go to school and absolutely loves all of the teachers. My younger child is in the peppers clas. He too has learned a lot in a short amount of time. I've seen a change in my children for the good. They are more independent, better listeners and more social. I would recommend this center to anyone who asked!

As recently as a year ago I would have given TLE five stars. With all the recent management and staff turnover, however, the place is on a downward spiral. The teachers have been jumping ship and there have been five center directors in under a year - with the most recent stating that she believes the center should and will close. The worst has been since this location went from corporate owned to a franchisee. The current "owner" is clueless. I don't blame the staff for leaving in droves...I would not stay at a job where I did not get paid on time. They are also constantly out of ratio and being asked to supervise more children than they are legally supposed to.

As to the "rumors" brought up in another review, these are not rumors but actual events that transpired at the center. There were several recent issues between children and instead of taking any steps to resolve these issues, the owner decided to simply expell the child who's parents requested a resolution. Tuitions have been increased arbitrarily and when questioned the owner simply responds "so take me to court... I'll win". . Several children were not fed lunch one day and instead of the center director taking accountability, she threw her staff under the bus. These are just a few examples of recent incidents.

I have not experienced or heard anything positive since the new owner took over, but I do know he offers discounts for positive reviews on social media. It is extremely sad that a once excellent child care center has deteriorated so rapidly

I have my girl here and the place has changed a lot under new management, good teachers, who smile and wish when we drop and pickup
The staff are amazing, the teaching staff all do a good job and there are always 2 teachers or more sometimes, the curriculum, morning evening snacks and lunch are included in the fees, they are open 630 to 630.The staff who left because of being either on cellphones or calling out most of the times do retaliate and the parents who dont get their way do the negative reviews all the time ., Take a tour of the center and you will see how much truth is in the reviews ., very affordable day care

Our daughter had been enrolled in this daycare since 2011. At the time, it was run by a wonderfully competent center director and truly caring teachers. That center director has since left and the center was transitioned to a franchise. The current center director, promoted from a classroom teacher when the center changed to a franchise, is incompetent in daily operations and lies to parents in order to cover her incompetence. When asked to manage an ongoing classroom issue that she had been aware of as the teacher for that classroom, she fabricated stories about children in the class. Eventually, she worked out an acceptable solution and the center franchisee contact us to ensure our satisfaction, even following up in email. That Saturday, he emailed us to arrange a meeting and when we called him, he expelled our daughter! He provided no documentation or details, despite repeated requests, and ignored our communication stating that he had expelled our daughter. When we involved corporate, this center franchisee lied, claiming "confusion." Unfortunately, corporate said they would manage him based on their internal policies.

At one time, we recommended many family friends to TLE. The teachers are wonderful but their morale is low: the center director and franchisee do not abide by ratios and often don't provide teacher breaks. The center franchisee has not paid his teachers on time and "forgot" to sign their checks once. He spent his first month of ownership threatening parents with unprompted tuition hikes. It's such a disappointment, but this center is not what it once was. Avoid at all costs.

I love this school!! My children love playing in the ball pit and love to do exercise with Flexi!!! Management and teachers are always available and willing to go above and beyond to take care of our precious children!!! I love that lunch, snacks, and foreign language are all included with tuition. If your a teacher you also get a discount!!!

My children have been going to TLE for 5 years, starting from when they were a babies. I love this school!!! The staff is experienced, warm and loving. They go the extra mile to know your child likes and dislike and they become part of your family. The building is clean and in a great location!!! Make Believe Blvd is a great space for the children.
