We will be hosting an Open house on February 22, from 10 am to 12 pm. Please Join us and see why we stand out above the rest.
We believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn. With that idea in mind, The Learning Experience®'s early childhood education experts created our unique and proprietary L.E.A.P.® (Learning Experience Academic Program®) curriculum. L.E.A.P.® encourages each child to achieve success independently while developing intellectually, socially, and cognitively through varied educational materials, activities and social interactions.
At TLE®, children as young as Infants are introduced to American Sign Language (ASL) on a monthly basis. Studies suggest that teaching babies to use signs and gestures to communicate accelerates their verbal development. Children who learn to sign as babies outperform their peers on IQ assessments, even by as much as 12 points. Handouts of the new signs are sent home with parents at the beginning of each month so they can reinforce signing at home with their children.
Fun With Phonics® is an all-inclusive, phonemic-based literacy curriculum that was specifically developed for 3-4 year olds. Through interactive activities and engaging reading experiences, children are introduced to essential language concepts in a fun and exciting way.
There is nothing more rewarding for a child than to possess a life changing skill that can open doors to new adventures and experiences. Fun With Phonics® is a complete early literacy program that will provide a solid knowledge base that a child can build upon to become a lifelong reader and writer. Our research has shown that almost 90% of our preschoolers enter kindergarten reading, due in large part to our Fun with Phonics® program
L.E.A.P. into Spanish® serves as an introduction to the Spanish language and Spanish culture. In addition to learning basic Spanish vocabulary, children are given a play passport as they travel to various Spanish-speaking countries from inside their classroom with our Tito Toro® character as their guide. Parents are included in the process when our Home Connections page is sent home to assist them in being able to speak Spanish with their children at home
Our Manners Matters® program teaches manners and etiquette to all of our TLE kids. According to the National Education Association (NEA), children need to be taught manners, social skills and how to be sensitive to others around them at an early age. The earlier children are introduced to these social graces the better off they will be in adulthood. As children get older, it becomes much harder to instill these traits. Teaching our children how to be respectful TLE citizens is an important enhancement to our curriculum, an enhancement that other early academic institutions often overlook. With the help of our Penny Polite® character , "Tummy to the Table" and "An Elbow Please if You Sneeze" are just a few of the polite terms our children at TLE are introduced to.
Our curriculum not only focuses on academic endeavors, but it also provides a basic education on the importance of healthy foods and keeping active. Our resident physical fitness character, Flexi Flamingo will help get children excited about daily stretching, balancing, hopping, and twisting as part of a daily and fun exercise routine. Making young children aware of positive food choices and participating in regular physical fitness will help provide your young learner with the basic knowledge and skills to hopefully take the first steps to a healthy lifestyle.
Enrichment Programs Benefit Children
The Learning Experience® (TLE®) is devoted to cultivating creative, compassionate and innovative thinkers. Our enrichment programs serve as fundamental components to help achieve that goal. Music, math, science, dance, yoga, performing arts, and physical fitness are all part of our exceptional Charlie Choo Choo® enrichment programming. These programs not only encourage children to learn and explore different avenues of learning, but unlike other child care centers, our enrichment programs are included in the cost of regular tuition. There are no additional fees.
Charlie Choo Choo® enrichment programs are provided to children at TLE centers in two uniquely educational approaches; each with the intention of broadening a child's scope of learning at its core. The first approach in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the Charlie Choo Choo® enrichment programs of Yippee for Yoga™, Talent Sprouts®, Suddenly Science®, Movin' N Groovin'® and Dancing Feet® are implemented by Charlie Choo Choo® teachers that are accredited in their respective fields of study. Other enrichment programs like Marvelous Math® and Music 4 Me® are available in kit formats that are then taught to children by TLE teachers.
We also offer a 2nd approach for TLE centers outside of the tri-state area. For these centers, we offer Charlie Choo Choo® Enrichment kits that feature Music 4 Me® and Marvelous Math®. The Talent Sprouts® enrichment kit program will soon be offered to centers outside of the tri-state area as well. Our Charlie Choo Choo® kit program approach is a useful method that gives TLE teachers the tools to assist them in teaching enrichment lessons in their own classrooms. This approach gives TLE centers the flexibility to incorporate enrichment themed activities throughout the week.
This is just a few of our pieces of our curriculum. Please see our website at www.thelearningexperience.com or contact us at 508-543-3837 for more information.
