During the pandemic, the center has been very helpful with keeping the children safe while still providing the excellent care and fun curriculum we have grown accustom to. I would highly recommend this center.

These early developmental years are the most crucial in our children's lives when it comes to building executive functioning so choosing a daycare was not a light decision for my wife and I. We visited many schools before settling on TLE and our decision was based on their playful but well-developed curriculum, their safety-minded attitude, and the attentiveness of the staff to the needs of the children.

Over a year later, we can say we that we made the right decision. Both of our daughters have developed wonderfully in their speech, social skills, cognition and manners. Our eldest (3) looks forward to going to school every day and finds it disappointing on weekends when we pass her school and she doesn't get to go inside. We love all our daughters' teachers and rest assured they are well taken care of when we drop them off.

Our only regret is that we were not able to start our daughters there earlier. In a home daycare, our eldest was falling behind but TLE has quickly corrected that and brought her to the level she should be at. If you are on the hunt for a daycare, do not overlook this one.

We were forced to switch to TLE when our original daycare closed. It's been an absolute roller coaster here. I feel awful dropping my child off in the morning since it's utter chaos around 8am. Staff is always running around and over their limit of children. My child has had foot and mouth twice in under a year from this location, and symptomatic of a 3rd time now. The new owner clearly prioritizes the $ over the children. Desperately looking for recommendations. I would advise to avoid this location because of a lack of sanitation and lack of care about the staff from the owner.

They do not stand by their motto of safety is their main concern, at least not for 12 months and up. My son was at TLE in Ledgewood for 12 months total, starting when he was 6 months old. The infant room was amazing. Miss. Connie and Miss. Beth care for your children as if they were their own. They sold me on the center, knowing that my child would be with loving people while I was at work. However, TLE does not stick to their policies. My son was bitten 3 times in one month with the skin broken twice without any follow through with the biter until I stated that I was going to call the state. The owner is rarely there, although his initial letter stated he would be moving to the area. The state has been out several times and cited the center with many infractions. More concern is placed on $$$ then the safety of the children there. I pulled my son when his room was 57 degrees and they napped him in another room with two fitted sheets, no blanket and then piled all of the children's bedding together at the end of the day (health code violation). The food is all canned and frozen. Often I would pick my son up thirsty, as he was not being provided with enough to drink during the day or they were just pouring tap water into his milk sippy cup without rinsing it. Although the directors are lovely, upper management has no childcare experience background and the majority of the teachers have no formal experience either.

Our daughter has been at TLE for over 6 months and is happy with her friends and teachers. She is happy when we drop her off, and pick her up, which is what I would hope for. Everyone says "Hello" when we walk in, and is always greeting our child, which is welcoming.

As a parent, I like the use of technology to notify of what goes on throughout the day, and what she's eaten. The meals could be a bit more expansive, but making meals for that many children, and making them all happy could prove difficult.

If you have school aged kids and/or picky eaters, TLE in Ledgewood is not where you want to send your kids. The negative reviews about this place are accurate and I can tell some of the 5 stars are fake seeing as how I recognize some teachers names and the owner of this franchise, Sushil Gandhi.

They placed my 6 year old (going into first grade) in a Preschool classroom and did not accommodate accordingly. This center has mandatory nap-time with lights out and nursery music playing from 12:30-2:30pm every day, even though state law says 30 minutes rest period for school aged kids. Regarding food, I was told that my daughter could bring her own lunch and snacks so if she didn't like what was being offered to her, she could eat what she brought. On several occasions, my daughter came home and told me they refused to let her get her lunchbox and to eat or drink what they gave her instead...since she didn't like it, she came home hungry and upset. I have removed my daughter from this center and placed her somewhere else, where she is much happier and is cared for appropriately for her age. I would never recommend this daycare facility to any parent.

We love The Learning Experience in Ledgewood! After doing an in home daycare for about 5 months we needed a change and we're so thankful we decided on TLE. The teachers, directors,and owners are so nice and attentive to my daughter. They really worked with us to make sure I felt 100% confident leaving my daughter there. I highly recommend this location!

I am a mom of 3 kids, my oldest passed away at 15 months old in 2013. My younger children at 2 and 3 years old. I am slightly nervous about leaving my kids anywhere but I do know that value of kids being around their peers and other adults. What it comes down to, is that I am another, not a teacher. I had my kids at a different facility since they were infants, recently in December, we moved them to TLE. I expressed my nervousness and I was treated with compassion and assured that I would never be looked at a different way because of it. I ask ALOT of questions, I have concerns that are sometimes just silly. I am never made to feel like I am being a bother to anyone. Within 2 weeks of my son ( 3yo) being there, he could hold a pencil properly and spell his name. My daughter had some "bratty" tendencies to her and the toddler teachers have helped the sweetie pie come out in her. Both of my kids have a great vocabulary, they are urged to be creative. They have a structured day and remain on a schedule. It is just the right combination of strict and leisurely. If my kids tell their teachers they need a drink or are hungry, they are able to have something to hold them over. I did not find that at other places. If my daughter needs to see her brother or vice versa, the staff never says no. It has a very "family" like feel. If you have a very demanding job and aren't able to be involved a lot, it isn't held against you. On the other hand, if you want to help out and stop in, you are welcome to do that. I don't have a pitt in my stomach when I leave them there, I know in my heart that they are safe, and loved. My daughter (my last baby) is very clingy to me. She would stay with me 24/7 if she could. Every morning she wakes up and says how she can't wait to see her teacher. This teacher is her first role model, her first idol. Thats very important in a little girls life. All the teachers there are. I truly appreciate the time and work the manager and director put into things. if they need an extra set of hands, you will always find them in a classroom. I love this school. I love that my kids love this school.

If you want palace that will cuddle your child and show lots of love but also teach them really valuable things to prepare them for life, this is the place. When the time comes for my kids to go to kindergarten, I know they will be ready.

TLE Ledgewood is a great daycare. It's more like a second home to my kids. The teachers are AMAZING. Very nurturing and caring. My daughter who is in 1st grade still enjoys stopping by and my son started there since he was just 6 weeks old. Needless to say TLE has been part of my family for the last 6 years and I wouldn't have it any other way.

TLE Ledgewood is the best daycare around. Tuition is reasonable and includes lunch and snack. The staff is amazing and treats the children like their own. The curriculum prepares the children socially and academically. I can't say enough about my experience with them.

I highly recommend The Learning experience in Ledgewood. My 3 year old daughter has been there since she was eight months old and I have never regretted it. They are my family's true partner in child education and rearing. The management goes above and beyond to make sure my child is healthy, happy, and safe, and the excellent teaching staff makes sure she is always creatively learning and developing life skills to become a well-rounded, good person that will serve her all her life. They keep the children engaged with various activities that challenge their little minds. When we walk through the halls we are greeted by smiles (Peter and Kara) and warm regards and when my wife and I need help they bend over backwards to provide it. I strongly recommend The Learning Experience in Ledgewood.

My daughter has been going to TLE for a year now and we absolutely love it! Everyone is friendly and so good with the children. Food is included in tuition (at least for toddlers) which is wonderful to have one less thing to worry about. I feel great every day knowing my daughter is in such capable and caring hands.

We love it at TLE, we couldn't be happier with the staff, and how amazing they all are. They are the most amazing caring group of teachers and administrators you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. The center is kept meticulously clean, the curriculum keeps little minds engaged, even when they are playing they are constantly learning. I credit my sons love of learning to TLE Ledgewood.

My son Jakub has been attending the preschool program at TLE for a couple of months. He's never been happier to get up and go each morning. He loves his teachers who genuinely care about him. He comes home talking about Make Believe Boulevard, the playground, his friends, and all of the projects they do. As a mom, it's a relief to know that my son's in good hands while I'm at work. We're grateful to have found TLE!

Have been using the Learning Experience for two years and have appreciated the professionalism of the staff as well as the growth my child has experienced. They are very responsive to parent concerns and employ very skilled and experienced teachers. Over the years they have earned our trust and we are planning to bring our second child there as well.
