The Learning Experience of Manahawkin is a home away from home for our TLE kids! We strive to create an environment of love, kindness, and learning. Our focus is a teaching style of learning through play with a curriculum which expands well beyond the traditional ABCs and 123s including manners, philanthropy, science and technology even for our littlest learners.
Come by and tour the center! We'd love to meet your little one as well!
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
