We moved from PA with a very tight timeframe to find our daughter a new daycare. She had a wonderful daycare in PA, and we loved the family like atmosphere it had. Unfortunately, I had been working in Maryland for three years and heard stories from co-workers stated, "You will never find something like that here." After calling, visiting, and meeting with different daycare professionals I came across TLE. I called, and within 30 minutes the Director called me right back. She wanted to know about our daughter, and asked about our prior experience. She invited my husband and I to the center during a day when the children would be up and active to get a feel for the center. When we walked in we knew, this is where our child had to be. After we visited they asked us if we wanted to bring our daughter by to see how she liked the classroom. After our daughter came in, sat with her future classmates and had snack we knew we had what we were looking for. Our daughter has grown so much being there, she is encouraged to engage with her peers and teachers in new activities as well as those that she shows interest in. I love that she is not just a paycheck to the center, but she is a unique person. The employees know her name, they know little things about her like if she was in a goofy mood or what books are her favorites. I could easily choose a center in Baltimore City, but I choose to drive past my office to drop her off everyday because when you find a daycare provider that is this good you will do anything to make sure your child is there. If and when we have another child, my husband and I already have concluded this is where they will also attend for daycare.
The learning experience in Parkville has been one of the best decisions we have ever made for our daughter. The excellence is driven from the very top. The owner is dedicated to the wellbeing, safety, education and having an enjoyable fun atmosphere for the children at all times. She only looks for the very best in her staff that share this same goal. Once you are inside you can see how happy and engaged each child is. In only 3 weeks of attending the learning experience they have been able to teach my daughter her numbers up to 10, her ABC’s, animal sounds and the best of all; they were able to help her use the potty full time! The learning experience is bright and colorful and kept very clean. They work hard on planning fun educational activities thru the summer. Each day my daughter comes home, I find her excited to tell me about the special visitors that have come to teach them a skill. She has meet with soccer players, seniors from the local retirement home, police officers and many more. I would highly recommend scheduling a visit to see the learning experience if you are in search for a high quality, loving atmosphere for your child.
We enrolled our children at The Learning Experience a few months ago and have been so impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the director. We are greeted by the director and teachers personally every single day. It's refreshing to see a director interacting and being hands-on with each individual classroom. You can tell they really take pride in the center. AND The curriculum is amazing!! The building is fairly new and always looks clean and well maintained. I'm surprised to hear negative reviews. Sure, sometimes the teachers change but the new teachers coming in are always better than the last. You can tell there is a lot of careful consideration and training being put into new staff members. The center is growing and I'm glad to be a part of such a wonderful place. We also love the special events each month! My daughter can't wait for the Valentine's Day dance this Friday!
