The Learning Experience – Academy of Early Education – opens Feb. 3, 2020

Located at 88 Executive Square in Wethersfield, The Learning Experience has programs for kids ages 6 weeks through 6 years. The foundation of The Learning Experience® was built on three key educational and care principles: cognitive, physical, and social; or as we say at TLE®, “learnplay, and grow!”

LEARN  Core Academic Skills. Our proprietary L.E.A.P.® (Learning Experience Academic Program) guarantees children will graduate TLE® with exceptional core academic skills that will start them on the path to a bright future. At TLE®, we know each child develops at their own pace, so our curriculum is designed to provide experiences for children that promote academic competency along with a mastery of developmental tasks, no matter what learning stage they are in.

PLAY Fitness and Healthy Lifestyle Skills. At TLE®, children are taught to engage in a variety of controlled and safe activities that encourage them to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle at an early age. Healthy food choices are provided daily while our teachers foster an awareness of proper nutrition.

GROW Life and Comfort Skills. TLE® embraces important practical and real-world matters that most other early learning institutions often ignore. Our proprietary Philanthropy Program lays the foundations for children to become respectful and well-mannered people by teaching them the value of selflessness, sharing and giving.

The Learning Experience is now offering tours for families – call 860-785-8889 to schedule a visit.
