We've been going to TLE for nearly 3 years. For the majority of that time we loved it. We felt our children were the staff's #1 priority, and that they were very well cared for. We became friendly with many of the staff, and often use them as babysitters. A few months ago, the corporate office allowed this location to be franchised, and the difference is stark. The new owners clearly only care about the bottom line, and actively try to squeeze every dime out of the place, regardless of the effect on the children or staff. Teachers are routinely scheduled for 6 or 7 hours for the day, but are then sent home after 1 or 2 if there are student absences. It's a common site to see teachers lingering in the hallways in the morning waiting for the building attendance to reach the level where another adult is legally required to supervise the children. You didn't misread that, staff are required to be on site at a certain hour, but they are not allowed to clock in until they are needed. Needless to say, staff are leaving in droves, and who can blame them? How can you survive when you don't know if you'll even get to work half your shift on any given day? Not only are teachers fleeing, within 30 days both the business manager and the director quit. Due to the chaotic staff situation and the owners penchant for moving children from room to room to keep staff at an absolute minimum, there is absolutely no consistency for the children. Multiple times last week alone my son was in 3 different classrooms throughout the day. Occasionally staff are unaware of his location and I have to go room to room to find him, and then go through AGAIN to find his things. I can not suggest that anyone possibly send their children here unless they have no other option. A few really good and dedicated teachers remain, but the ownership simply views your children as profit-generating widgets, and that is not a recipe for a successful childcare center. Needless to say, we are leaving at the end of the month.

The Hamilton TLE is awesome! The staff is always so helpful and friendly. Michelle, the center director and Nicole, the business manger run a very clean, organized, wonderful, educational center where the children are always their number one priority!

The learning experience at hamilton do not treat all the teachers same way. For example tuition benefits for all the teachers R different. Some teacher pay only $100 for all month for two kids. It's not fair. When teachers ask them for raise co- operate has no money. I think every teacher should pay same amount for child care.

TLE has been a wonderful experience for our 2 year old daughter! It is very reassuring to walk in each day and every teacher and staff member knows your name and child. They treat your children as their own and care about the well being of each one. In addition, the activities and learning experiences are top notch. Our daughter even learned Yoga and demonstrated the downward dog pose for us, we were so impressed!

There is no other place my daughter and I would rather be! This is not a generic "daycare". This is definitely an Academy of Early Learning. I know that when I drop my daughter off everyday, she is safe, happy and will learn something valuable. She comes home singing full songs, reciting her ABC's, communicating in sign language and can count to ten! All of this she accomplished before turning two years old. I am impressed by the dedication and commitment the staff shows each and every day. The water Play program this summer was amazing and so much fun for my child. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure that you are not wasting a single dollar. I highly recommend this location if you are wanting your child to be a step ahead in early education!

This place is awesome! I had never left my daughter with anyone but the minute I walked into TLE, I felt very welcomed and was walked thru step by step what my daughters day would consist of. We got to visit classrooms and see the teachers interacting with the kids. I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter knowing she would be safe, learning and having fun! Thank you TLE!

The Learning Experience at Hamilton is awesome. Highly recommend this center to anyone looking for the best center and experience for their child. My child attended this center from the time she was 2.5 years until she completed Preschool last year and now returns for summer camp. We could not be more pleased with our decision to send our child here. The curriculum is more than amazing. Our child was reading simple books in preschool and entered kindergarten reading above grade level. The staff is dedicated to helping each child grow both academically and social/emotionally. And the communication with parents is exceptional. The center is very clean and bright.

I can't say enough good things about this center! Clean, fun, enriching, caring.... The staff and directors are the perfect combination of fun, caring, and professional. Both my kids have had wonderful experiences in all of their classrooms and I feel completely at ease knowing that they are in good hands during the day. I love hearing about my kids' days and all the fun activities they got to participate in. If you are looking for a child care center in this area look no further!
