We also include sign language in our all of our classroom's daily instruction.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The Learning Experience in Milford is the absolute best choice that you can make for a daycare! My daughter started here about a year and a half ago and the strides that she has made in both speech and behavior are absolutely incredible. She went from being a shy little baby to being a little chatterbox that looks forward to seeing her friends and teachers every day. The teachers are top notch and truly look like they enjoy being here plus the administration does everything they can to create a fun and safe environment. Never once have I been upset to drop her off. Kathy Bader, the director, has this contagious happiness that really makes you believe she loves her job and she is excellent at being the main person at the school. My daughter is 2 years old and already has learned to count to 15, say the alphabet, and sing funny songs. She also is getting close to being fully potty-trained and is learning to express her emotions in an effective way. This is all thanks to the work of Kathy and her crew! 2 Thumbs up and 10 stars for TLE-Milford!

I absolutely LOVE TLE!! My son has been much happier since he started going at the beginning of the year. He has learned so much, and on the car rides home he tells me what he did that day. I absolutely love that he learns sign language....amazing to me when I ask him to say a word that he had learned. The teachers are wonderful and you can see that they just love the kids. I was iffy about changing daycares, but TLE was the best decision I ever made! Makes me happy to know he is having a good time while I am off at work.

TLE at Milford was just the daycare center I was looking for when I enrolled my first child 4 years ago. They offer a secure location, "open door" policy for parents just checking in on their children, as well as an extensive curriculum that not only teaches the children basic math and verbal skills, but also introduces them different languages. 4 years later, all three of my children are enrolled at TLE at Milford, and I can see how much they have gained just by being there. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell that they care about each and every child in their center.

The Learning Experience in Milford is AMAZING! My two son's have been going there since this past May when my wife went back to work. My oldest son is in the Preschool 2 room, the teachers in the room are outstanding. I recently was able to go into the school to read a book to my sons class and the organization they have is outstanding, all of us as parents know, kids this age tend to want to run around and never sit, all they said was its story time and all the kids knew right were to go and sat perfectly while i attempted to read a book upside down(which is not as easy as it looks lol). My youngest son is in the Twaddlers room and again the teachers are outstanding. My youngest was at home with Mommy until he was about 18 months so the transition was rocky at first. They helped everyday and it has been a very fast and easy transition. If anyone is looking to start, I can not say enough good things about the TLE.

We have our son at this daycare for almost a year now and we couldn't be happier with the experience. We love all the activities as well as the curriculum here and all the teachers are really engaging and our 18 month old is very attached with all of them.

Some of the positives from our experience so far


Very close to our home and right off both Milford exits; so it was very convenient for us.


Very client, a small play area for kids and an indoor Make Believe Boulevard for indoor activities in winter. The class are brightly lit with plenty of room for kids to roam around.


Very Friendly, Patient and Engaging


Very competitive with other daycare in the area

Hands down the best decision bringing our boys to TLE. The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and our boys have already learned so much in the few months we've been enrolled. I can't say enough good things about this center!

I have 2 daughters that attend TLE in Milford. Both love it there and love their teachers. My oldest is in her 3rd year of preschool (missed that cut-off) and they are making sure that she and some others are engaged. The teachers are in tune with what each child truly needs. The facility is amazing with some very cool amenities - like the giant smart board in Pre-School! Overall a great experience.
