Please go on to the NJ government Inspection Site to pull up all the violations. These reports will speak for themselves. The daycare is extremely unsafe and is not being run safely. Please do your research so your child is safe and doesn't go to this school. Teacher was caught with illegal drugs and pills in the school. Google it and several news channels have reported on it.

Thrilled to have my three year old attending TLE of Whippany. Their staff is a second family to my son, who finally loves going to school! We recently transferred from another center up the road and it has made a huge difference. He is learning so much so fast and it just amazes me!

I can only reiterate the most recent comments. We recently had to pull my children over growing safety concerns - some of which you will see in other reviews (all true). The ownership and the full management staff changed this past summer, followed by:
-decreased documentation of incidents or illnesses (and seemingly a general fear of putting anything in writing)
-decreased adherence to general safety procedures (e.g. Lack of fire drills, therefore leading to chaos and kids outside in 12 degrees without jackets when the fire alarm was actually triggered)
-dramatic increase in teacher turnover leading to the entire center CONSISTENTLY operating at ratios above legal state limits
-increase in risky hires just to fill teaching spots
-increase in major incidents, possibly due to unqualified teachers just having too many kids and stretched too thin (e.g. Kids being hurt or left by themselves without supervision)

I do not believe that this center will or should be open in 6 months without major management or ownership changes. I would not recommend this as a safe place to send your children.

Stay away!
They left my 2 year old daughter outside on the playground, by herself. They didn't know where she was at pickup. Not only that, but it was handled terribly, no attention paid for almost a full week. I had to report it to the state, they should have self reported.
Ever since the new franchise owner took over, it has gone downhill. Many teachers and students have left, including us. Stay away!

My child started with TLE in October. So far I am very please with the center. The first teacher we had was not that great but since Ms. Crystal started in November we have been much happier. She is very caring and devoted to the children. She is wonderful!
I have recommended the center to my friends.

My daughter began at TLE in the infant room while they were under corporate ownership. We loved it so much that I recommended it to a friend who quickly enrolled her daughter into Toddler A. Once the ownership switched things seemed to snowball. My daughter and my friend's daughter were in 2 separate toddler classes at this time and we both saw the same consistent issues. Some of these I was able to look past like the app not being accurate despite bringing it up several times. One issue I was not able to overlook - the facility CONSISTENTLY did not follow state ratios. State ratio for under 18 months is 1:4. Numerous times my husband, parents, and I picked up my daughter to find numbers like 14 children to 2 teachers. My friend received constant phone calls from TLE management informing her that her daughter was injured, in my opinion because 2 teachers cannot possibly adequately look after 14 children. I addressed this issue numerous times with management and even met with Corinne, the franchise owner, who seemed to have no idea this was going on which was even more concerning. Despite addressing it several times nothing was done and management did not seem to care. We decided to pull my daughter and are much happier with where we are now. It was upsetting because we absolutely LOVED the teachers she had, majority of whom are no longer with the facility.

The change in ownership has resulted in a very poor experience. No communication with parents, the app is always broken and despite the parents complaints they will not repair it. There is an ongoing exodus of the best teachers and the parents are pulling their children yet still no improvements.

As noted in a previous comment, since the center has undergone new management (corporate to franchisee) it has declined. Parents are not informed of needed information throughout the day and no one appears happy. The teachers are excellent, but I greatly fear they will now be leaving the Center.

Ever since the new ownership at this facility I have noticed numerous negative changes. Have other parents noticed the same?

Best daycare in Morris's county. I had my son there for a few years and wouldn't have any other way. Great teachers and teaching programs and very clean.

Both of my sons attend pre-school at TLE. My older son is now 5 and has been here since he turned one. He will be starting kindergarten next fall and is already reading and doing basic addition. The teachers have always been friendly and caring. We started our second son when he was 3 months old. He is almost 3 now. Both of my children know how to socially interact with other children their age as well as adults. I believe that TLE is preparing them both to be ready for what lies ahead.

The Learning Experience in Whippany is an amazing center for children! The teachers care for their students like they would care for their own children. I would highly recommend enrolling any child here! 5 stars for TLE @ Whippany!!

My son has been attending The Learning Experience for 3 years now. I can't believe how much he has learned in the time he has attended. He could identify numbers, letters, letter sounds and write his name before he turned 3.5 years old. I know he will be ready for Kindergarten thanks to his teachers and the wonderful curriculum provided. We can't wait for our newborn to get the same experience with TLE!
