HORRIBLE Administration at this daycare facility. They might have a nice building and presentation curriculum, but not the right people, and definitely not the right attitude towards the kids/families. Although in this field there might be a high turnover rate, at this location particularly, the teacher turnover is HUGE and the administration never lets the families know what is going on. Basically, you find out if you ask.. . My child was enrolled in the toddler room for only 10 weeks. There was no consistency in the teachers at all .On my kid’s tenure here, we were used to see 6 teachers or more in his class every week, averaging 3-4 different teachers daily, and most of them were students without much experience or talent for the job. Therefore I could not always get answers when asked about my child.Due to this inconsistency, the daily curriculum and activities were inexistent (besides the show-off paper), the kids were just strolling around the room/rooms the whole day, every day. More than that, if your kids develop attachments to the people around, you can forget-it; Every time they would get comfortable with a teacher, another one would replace. I don’t think there is any greater anxiety than being concerned about your child’s care and safety. I am the type of parent that DO care about what happens in the classroom after the child is dropped off. My husband or I would visit almost daily at different hours, I would call once a day to check on my child, I even took random days off from work and spent it all in the daycare to observe how it all goes. I witnessed teachers yelling on kids, there was no consistency, no proper communication, not enough teaching materials/toys and the admin is rude, mean, the kids are just a number for them.This place is a totally waste of time and money.It doesn't matter how many of the admin’ friends post FIVE star reviews as a favor. Do your own research and judge for yourself.
Best school in the area, my wife and I visited all of them. This school is top notch from the staff to the curriculum and everything in between. So happy to have my boys in a school where I know they will be ahead of the game when they go to Kindergarten. Best part is they absolutely loe going to school...can't ask for more than that
We love that our daughter learns so much and is so well taken care of at TLE-Centereach!
When looking around for a daycare for our oldest son, my wife and I had 4 daycares lined up one day, with the Learning Experience being the first of the day. After being given a tour, and meeting staff, my wife and I agreed that this was the place for our son. 5 years on, and our youngest now attends TLE, and is doing great! Everyone is really nice, professional, and on point with the children.
My grandson Matthew has been going to TLE since September. He amazes me with everything he has learning. It isn't just a daycare, it's a school. Great place!
Ever since me and my wife walked into the daycare, we knew this would be the one for our children.. Great staff that is very professional. I know my kids are safe everyday I drop them off.
My two grandsons have come to this daycare since they were 4 months old, I wish I could watch the boys for my daughter but distance is the issue. After touring the facility I knew this was the best place for them to go. Not only would they have the chance to interact with all the other children, but they have such a wonderful curriculum and knew that they will be in great hands. Now my grandsons are 2 1/2 and 16 months and I still feel the same way. There is no better place for my little loves than TLE.
My son has been going to TLE for the last 2year, the amount that he has learned in that time is incredible. The staff is very loving, caring and friendly. I could not be any happier.Megan B.
We LOVED TLE. Every day our son Matthew is excited to come to school and every day he returns home happy to tell us about the fun he had and the new subjects he learned about. We are amazed at how much he now knows about and is retaining the information he is given. My wife and are both teachers and appreciate the quality learning environment we see at TLE. TLE has our highest recommendation.
My grandson Matthew has been attending the learning experience since September. He lights up when he talks about school and his friends and teacher. He is always eager to show off the school when I come visit. My daughter and son in law made a great decision sending him to the Learning Experience!
