At The Learning Experience Academy of Early Education, we believe that caring for and educating children is a noble and enriching task. We are more than just a child care center. We pride ourselves on the love and respect we provide to each child and their family. We have more than 25 years of experience in providing children with the tools and the environment necessary to achieve their highest potential.

When you walk into our center, you get a sense of being amongst family. We consider our center to be your child's home away from home. At The Learning Experience children are given the support they need to grow socially, physically and emotionally (or LEARN, PLAY and GROW) in a safe and secure environment. High-tech security systems, an exceptional and proprietary curriculum, a well-equipped, clean and sanitary environment and state of the art center are just some of the ways The Learning Experience stands apart from the others. We are proud of our structured, yet fun environment that offers children a world of opportunity to gain confidence and knowledge, all while establishing a love for learning and giving parents peace of mind that their child is in good hands.

It is important to trust the people who are responsible for the care and education of your children. Each staff member is a loving and nurturing individual with exceptional credentials. Teachers and assistants must follow strict guidelines, meet all state certification requirements and are encouraged to participate in sponsored continuing education programs. Mandatory First Aid training and CPR courses are provided annually. Consistent evaluations by superiors and parents help maintain the center's high standard of excellence for its personnel.

We know that choosing a daycare for your child can be a difficult decision. Knowing that, we are here to help and to provide parents with peace of mind that their little one(s) are being cared for in a nurturing, warm and secure environment.

We absolutely love The Learning Experience. We have two children enrolled and our oldest son has been there since the center opened nearly two years ago. As any parent knows, choosing childcare is an extremely difficult decision, but there are many things that TLE does that are far beyond other daycares we have been enrolled in or have visited. First of all, security is a top priority with two sets of locked doors and a two-step check-in process. When we attended a daycare in Manhattan, there was only one door and the lock was often broken, which made me extremely nervous. The staff will also notify us immediately if anything happens - even something as minor as our baby being scratched by another baby - and they keep us updated throughout the day via photos and updates on the app as well as an email report at the end of the day. We also fill out paperwork indicating which hospital and emergency services we want to use if god forbid an accident happens. In the baby room, parents must wear surgical booties before entering to keep the floors clean. The curriculum is very advanced and our 4-year old is already learning Spanish, sign language, math, geography, etc. along with special sections on manners and volunteerism. The staff, including the director Ms. Felice, are absolutely wonderful and many of the teachers have become like family members to our kids. The center offers a bunch of great incentives that you won't find in other places like sibling discounts, corporate discounts, vacation credits and meals and snacks included. Overall, The Learning Experience is a fantastic school that I highly recommend to other families!

Discovery Village

580 White Plains Road, Tarrytown, NY

Starting at $1440/mo

At Discovery Village classic and contemporary research and experience on early childhood learning and care come alive, translated into our playful approach. We are a high quality daycare and preschool, serving children from 6 weeks to five years old.

Discovery Village is unique.

With guidance from their teachers, children at Discovery Village learn by doing - transforming their classrooms into places in a village. Possibilities are endless! Classrooms can be designed as homes, restaurants, science labs, zoos, rocket ships, and more; anything our children are interested in. Teachers take the lead with the infants, designing the classrooms as nurturing, caring places such as homes or gardens. As children's interests develop they are able to make more and more choices about the design of their own places, stemming from their own curiosity and creativity.

Learning in all subject areas at Discovery Village is carefully integrated into the experience of designing and living in our village places. This includes age-appropriate learning in the areas of speaking and listening, reading and writing, math and science, social studies and cultural studies, the arts and physical education, and social-emotional as well as character skill building.

Our playful approach is grounded in experiential and project-based learning theory and research. It is a unique adaptation of "Reggio-inspired" learning, an educational philosophy emphasizing experiential learning, emerging from student interest, in a relationship-driven environment. In addition to our integrated learning, we place strong emphasis on social emotional learning.

We are open Monday-Friday from 7 AM to 6 PM, and serve children from 6 weeks to 5 years. Nutritious meals and snacks, cooked on-site, are included in the cost of tuition.
