This center is absolutely fantastic. Coming from a sub-par experience nearby, I am BEYOND THRILLED with the way TLE treats my daughter. Every employee I have been in contact with has been competent, caring and genuinely concerned with my daughter's well-being. TLE is well worth the price and is a clean, bright, positive environment.

It's very hard to trust someone else with your children. Choosing a daycare can be a difficult decision. The TLE family is flawless!!!!! Every employee is truly dedicated to caring for your child. As your child ages their milestones are met with an outstanding curriculum. Both my children are excited for school every morning. Their teachers have so much love and compassion. I never have one doubt when a walk out the door and start my hectic day ! Take a tour and you'll feel the love instantly!
I can't say enough great things about TLE in Manahawkin. Our daughter has been going here since age one and is now in kindergarten. She is enrolled in before and after care here now and if TLE became a full elementary and high school we would keep sending her here! The staff is very caring and knowledgeable and TLE is a fantastic blend of both learning and having fun. I highly recommend this to anyone with kids

My son has been a member since 8 weeks old and we absolutely love TLE! They care for your child like a family member. I respect and trust them.
TLE Manahawkin is hands down the BEST!!
It's been and still is my children's second home. Both of my daughters started at 11 weeks old. My first is now a Kindergarten student who because of TLE is reading and thriving in public school! The curriculum is phenomenal and the staff are stellar! My infant is now 6 months and her whole face just lights up every time we enter the infant room and she is greeted by her teachers. I leave every day for work knowing that my girls are getting the same care that I would give them. They treat us like family and there is no greater feeling then that
Best decision I have made for my daughter, who is now a thriving kindergartner, was sending her to TLE in Manahawkin! I knew dropping her off every day that she was being cared for as if she was part of their family and she was very well prepared for "big girl school" (kindergarten). I would highly recommend TLE in Manahawkin to anyone looking for a great place to send their child!
The Learning Experience of Manahawkin is the best school around! The curriculum is top notch and the staff is like one big family! If you are looking for a school, this is definitely the place!!!

My son has been going to the learning experience for about 4 years now and all I can say is this place is definitely the Harvard of daycares in the area. The owners are amazing and All the staff are well educated and caring!!! I recommend this place to anyone Wants the absolute best for their children. I simply cannot say enough about how the learning experience has Helped my son advance into the awesome child that he has become.
My experience at TLE has been incredibly positive. We've gone to the center for 7 years now with two children. I can't say enough about the caring staff, attentive owners, and curriculum. The center is clean, organized and secure. Being a working parent is very difficult, but knowing that my children are being taken care of, happy, learning and safe means the world to me and I have always recommended The Learning Experience of Manahawkin not only because of the great things I see about them, but for the simple fact that my kids love it there.
Love the staff highly recommend to any one. Curriculum has our not even yet 2 years old thriving at a high level
We have been sending our children there since they opened. The curriculum is great, the staff is friendly and the owners I would consider them friends after all these years. The center is clean, which is huge for us, after attended 2 other centers that weren't, I considered not going back to work.
One of the owner is also a Nurse, which is reassuring knowing she is there, if ever something happened or just for a Mom with questions.
As a working mother dropping my child off for other people to take care of was very hard at first. I am so happy that I chose my child to attend The Learning Experience of Manahawkin. I instantly felt like I was part of the family. I get updates on the safe and secure app and even get to see pictures of my child having fun and learning. The moto of TLE is to "Learn, Play and Grow". Seeing my child happy and hearing about their day is so rewarding after a long day at work!

My daughter has attended The Learning Experience of Manahawkin since she was 21 months old, she is now 6. Everyday as I would drop her in her classroom I knew that she was not only well cared for but she was loved! Having teachers show her love as she learned was and is very important to me! As she got older she had developed a love for school that has carried with her as she entered public school (she is currently in 1St grade). She still attends TLE in the before and after program which allows her to get on and off the bus at the center. If you ask her, she would tell you that the owners and all the teachers she has had over the years are part of her family. If you are looking for a school for your child you really need to not look any further, TLE is definitely the place for you and your child.
This place is great. Love being a part of the TLE family. My daughter is very happy here. She's been attending since she was an infant and everyday she learns something new. Best decision we ever made.
Over the past few years both of my children have attended the Learning Experience of Manahawkin. As a working mom it is hard to leave your children for the day. You worry about how they will be and how fast you can get your work done to come pick them up. At the learning experience they have loving and caring teachers who are able to make drop off an ease. My child loves her teachers and frequently talks about them at home. I know I can leave with the peace of mind that my children will be well cared for. As if that isn't enough they also have an amazing curriculum and the kids are always learning. We are very happy here. Thank you to the dedicated staff and management team for all the hard work you do.

I am the owner. I take great pride in our center. We have amazing teachers who are dedicated to the care of the children. Please visit our center and see for yourself. We have a positive, clean learning environment.
Would not recommend , they have young people that come in the after noon they don't watch the kids , everyday 2yr old falling bump ,not being watched . Very unorganized the one in manahawkin , they are all ran buy different people better experience at different location ,one of the owners nasty .totally agree with other mom

The owners are not very bright. They made my son sit in their office as if he were being punished for coming to school with breakfast. If it was after 8am he could not bring anything to eat with him which made it very difficult with my husband's and I schedules for work. Also they have to many young unresponsible employees working there who take over in the afternoon hours and does not help the kids go to the bathroom. My son has come home numerous times with poop marks on his underwear and a red behind. I had even brought wipes in and asked them to just check my son to make sure he wipes good and still it did not get done. I did not have a great experience with this place and I would not recommend them to anyone.
