My child has never been in child care before going to this one. I was so nervous leaving her in the care of "strangers" but that's the thing it doesn't feel that way. They welcome you with open arms as if you are apart of the family. Frank the Asst Director not only make sure the kids feel great about coming in every morning but he cares about how the parents feel. I was waiting around the corner of the room just because it's hard at first to leave your kid with someone else when they have been with you since they have been born! (My daughter is 2 1/2yrs old) he saw on the camera that I was just standing there and came over to make sure I was okay and constantly assures me that my daughter is indeed fine. I visited a handful of daycares before going with this one, but nothing compared to the cleanliness of the place, the education they provide teaching the kids Spanish, sign language, mathematics, and more! I was surprised with how much she retained in one week alone.
During our search for daycare, I had visited 6 different places and wasn't feeling enthusiastic about any of them, when I noticed TLE on the way home. As I came in I knew I'd found a treasure. The environment is bright and stimulating, the staff at the front desk was super friendly, and their curriculum was great. They invited me in, got to know a little bit about me and gave me a tour. My 8 month old has been in the infant room for 3 months now and we couldn't be happier! They follow whatever schedule your baby is already on so it is an easy transition for your little one. The teachers are warm and caring and communicate well with us. They always take a few extra minutes to hear about his morning when we drop him off and to tell us about our son's day when we pick him up. Our little guy loves going to TLE and is almost always happily playing on the floor with the teachers and other babies when we pick him up. Overall, we are incredibly pleased with our experience.
Last December I took the decision to start the early education program for my 9 months old daughter. This decision was made because, as is well known, it is during the earliest years of life that humans' are more capable to enhance their ability to learn and develop social skills. This will not only give her a solid foundation for her future, but also provide support throughout her life. I had reviewed and analyzed many alternatives and I decide for “The Learning Experience” due its curriculum but as a mom, when it came time to have my daughter start the program, I had mixed feelings: “maybe the curriculum is good but I don’t know the educators”, “my daughter is so young to start”, what if .. what if…. But in “The learning Experience of Atascocita” they erased all those feelings from the first tour visit and I am able to share with all that my daughter, even after a few days that she started showed me that she is so happy to stay there every morning!
