The Learning Experience® is extremely proud of our proprietary curriculum, The Learning Experience Academic Program (L.E.A.P®).

L.E.A.P. is broken into three separate stages based on age and development beginning with Little Learners and progressing through L.E.A.P. 1 and L.E.A.P. 2.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Our experience at TLE has been wonderful. The staff are wonderful and caring. My daughter is in the infant room and transitioning back to work has not been easy. What is easy is knowing that she's going to a safe place that she loves! The social interaction, finger painting, projects and paintings have been wonderful for her. We get a daily report on how her day went which makes us feel like we were able to continue her schedule and make her life easier. I am very happy with the center and couldn't ask for more.

We looked at several centers before choosing TLE in Northport. We have been so pleased with the experience. The teachers really make it special. My daughter loves the Infant A/B teachers and I can rest easy knowing they take such good care of her while we are at work. They communicate very well - what she ate, when she slept, what she had fun doing, etc. We have just transitioned to the Toddler room and we are looking forward to many years of fun and learning at TLE!

My two kids have been going to TLE Northport for just over 3 years. I have loved all the teachers and staff. They take excellent care of my kids and I'm always amazed at the things they learn at such a young age! My oldest graduated from preschool last spring and went on to kindergarten fully prepared for the expectations he needed to make. My youngest will be going into the preschool program in the fall. He loves going there every day and both have made some wonderful friends and memories.

TLE was perfect for our needs. My two daughters love the teachers and the care they receive every day. The curriculum, the facility, the staff, and the snacks are all top notch. Come see for yourself!

My daughter is in the toddler program and loves going to TLE!. My wife and I know that she is in good, loving hands when we leave her with the teachers every morning. Having a safe, nurturing environment for our daughter to stay every day is so important, and we found it at TLE.

y daughter graduated from TLE’s pre-k program and is doing amazing in Kindergarten this year. Every day she would tell me all of the wonderful things her teachers taught her (some of the things I didn’t even know myself) and about how much fun she had with all of her friends! TLE helped create a solid educational foundation for my daughter to grow from and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.
