Welcome, and thank you for your interest in The Learning Experience® in Chantilly, VA. Our brand new state-of-the-art child development center is located at 4150 Pleasant Valley Road and is conveniently located near the Rt50/28 interchange and just minutes from I-66. Our newly-built center is open and currently enrolling!
The Learning Experience® (TLE) Chantilly is nestled in a private setting providing a great deal of privacy, security, and serenity. We are open year-round, Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 6:30pm in order to accommodate our many working families. We are a premier child development center with a dynamic and fun environment that is committed to the quality care and education of your child. We offer a proprietary curriculum to children ages six weeks to five years and a private preschool that has nearly 90% of our children reading before Kindergarten.
Each day, our parents have confidence that their child is being taken care of in a loving and respectful environment. We extend the offer to all families to come visit us and see why The Learning Experience® is the perfect home away from home. We know that choosing care for your little one(s) is an important decision and greatly affects the life of your child and your family. We pride ourselves on our warm and loving teachers, phenomenal curriculum and the simple extras that make bringing your child to day care an easy and stress free event.
Our curriculum and related programs are designed to foster learning in a fun and exciting way that engages the senses and stimulates the mind. Our teachers are charged with creating an environment that provides their students with a safe and comfortable place to learn, play, and grow. They are there to love and nurture the emotional needs of each student and make him or her feel special. This adds up to an overall "learning experience" that can't be beat! Call or stop by for a tour to see what the excitement is all about!
When we began this venture, we established our three guiding beliefs as the foundation of our business:
1. The child always comes first. The safety and nurturing of each child is our foremost responsibility.
2. Respect for all. We will extend respect to everyone with whom we come in contact, including each child, parent, employee and supplier.
3. Excellence in everything we do. We expect to know what constitutes excellence and actively seek to achieve it.
Our unique programs are based upon years of research and early childhood education experience and that is why we pride ourselves on offering both excellent academic programming as well as a variety of enrichment programs, all free of charge to our children. Our school is divided into classrooms based on age and development beginning with our state-of-the-art Infant rooms. From there, children advance into the Toddlers, Twaddlers, Preppers, Preschool and Pre-K programs.
The Learning Experience® is extremely proud of our proprietary curriculum, The Learning Experience Academic Program (L.E.A.P®). At TLE, we realize that how children learn is as important as what they learn and encourage each child to achieve success while acquiring invaluable cognitive and social skills. 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®. Our unparalleled Fun with Phonics® program is our early reading program that helps nearly 90% of our preschoolers to read at a Kindergarten level or greater by the time they graduate!
All children participate in one or more of our enrichment programs provided by Charlie Choo Choo® Enrichment Programs, whose certified instructors come directly to the children's classrooms. Programs including Music 4 Me®, Dancing Feet®, Suddenly Science®, Marvelous Math®, Yippee for Yoga ® and Movin' & Groovin'® further develop each child's imagination, socialization skills, mind and body. The programs rotate every twelve weeks and the program(s) each class receives is determined upon age appropriateness. In addition, we believe what is good for one child is good for all and that is why we never charge our parents for enrichment programs.
We also pride ourselves in the cleanliness of our center. Not only do we provide the cleanest, most well-equipped facilities, we also utilize ActivePure® technology to ensure the air our children breathe is clean and safe! ActivePure® was developed for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and kills germs on surfaces throughout the classrooms and gets rid of odors!
