Amazing Facility! The teachers there are very nice and the Regional director if very responsive. If it wasn't for the fact that I needed a place for my older one to go as well I would have enrolled my son here.

Looking for a childcare provider that provides a safe, caring, and clean environment? Look no further than TLE in Woodbridge. Our son has been here for 2+ years and we are extremely pleased and satisfied with this center. The staff is LOVING and genuinely seem to care about the children. The teachers are AMAZING. Thanks to the teachers and curriculum used at TLE, our son is more than prepared (socially, emotionally, and academically) to start kindergarten this fall. The administrators (Tara and Shawn) are great- if you have a concern, they will address it. Prior to attending TLE, our son was at two other well-known childcare centers in the area, and neither were as good as TLE- cleanliness was an issue and the curriculum was not as robust. When my son is at TLE, I do not have to worry about his well-being. I know he is safe, happy, and learning. I highly recommend checking out TLE.

My daughter has been attending this school for about 2 years now and I absolutely love it! She loves the teachers, the other children, and the curriculum. For financial reasons, I had to switch my daughter to another school and as a young child, you would think that they would not know the difference. My child was so unhappy at the other school. With the other school, I was able to log onto the app and watch my child throughout the day. The learning experience does not have that option and yet I still feel like my child is in a better care facility. Within a month, she was back at the Learning Experience like she never left! This school strives to meet expectations. I feel comfortable leaving my child here. The bright colors are welcoming. The rooms are clean and up to date. I would recommend. - Janina

My son had never been in childcare before TLE because I was worried he wouldn't like it. With TLE, there was no need to worry, since after one day he was asking to go back to see his new friends and his teacher, Ms. Alisha. This childcare has the perfect mix of learning, structured play, and unstructured play. The children are served age-appropriate healthy snacks and a healthy lunch, and do fun activities such as soccer and kids' yoga. The kids have lots of both indoor and outdoor play. The classes even go on age-appropriate field trips. The center is very clean, and the classrooms are large inside. The teachers and staff members are kind, patient, gentle, and fun-loving individuals who really love being with children--and it shows. I could not be happier with my choice of TLE for childcare for my son, and my son could not be happier, either.

My daughter has been with the center since June 2014 and I am very happy with the care she is being given. She was in the summer camp which was great and definitely kept the kids busy with multiple activities/field trips over the course of the summer. Her teachers genuinely care about her and have gotten to know her on a personal level which is more than I expected. She now attends before and after care. They bus her to/from school and I am very pleased with the care she gets.

I have not dealt with the owners so cannot comment on anything regarding them because I have never met them. There has not been any turn over in the management since I've had Laila there and I really love Sara and Kelsey's attitudes about their jobs. They are both very sincere and happy to be at work. I've thoroughly enjoyed dealing with both of them. The center is very clean and the halls are filled with the art work the kids have done. Its nice seeing that when you are walking through the center.

The indoor play area is probably one of the coolest things you will ever see at a day care. They usually only get to play there when its raining or too cold to go outside which is a bummer because they kids love playing in there. The outdoor playground is really nice as well.

Overall I really enjoy having my daughter here.

When we first joined, we loved TLE. However, as we have gotten to know the owners of this franchise, our opinion has quickly changed. They are on their third director since opening and sent out the most unprofessional letter today describing why they fired their most recent director. My husband and I are in complete shock that this company would feel that sending something like that out is appropriate in any way. The owners attitude is basically "we don't care, leave if you want." We have 2 children enrolled and one on the way and we are interviewing new schools starting tomorrow. I also found out that my children's teachers are also looking elsewhere for new jobs. Best to stay away!
