Founded in 1980 by the Weissman family, the Learning Experience approach is built on three important developmental factors: cognitive, physical, and social abilities. Or to put it simply, “learn, play, and grow!” The unique, proprietary programs the Weissman family developed decades ago quickly caught on, revolutionizing the daycare industry.
The experts at the Learning Experience continuously develop new and innovative programs, based on cutting-edge research trends in early childhood education. Every month, new themes are introduced, that include hands-on, real-world learning, exposing your child to 21st-century life skills. Furthermore, the top-quality curriculum incorporates the Early Learning Standards of every state in which the Learning Experience operates.
The Learning Experience facilities are not only vibrant and fun, they’re also designed to promote learning; all of the furniture and every little detail in each room is age-appropriate, meeting the singular needs of the six different stages of development. The facilities are designed to foster a comfortable environment where children feel safe, relaxed, and ready to learn. Their creativity and curiosity will always be encouraged.
The facilities also feature enhanced security, such as security key fobs required to enter any of our facilities. Only staff and registered family members receive these security fobs.
A child-focused approach to learning is exemplified in the company’s proprietary L.E.A.P (Learning Experience Academic Program). L.E.A.P encourages your child to learn hands-on by doing, exploring, and solving problems at their own pace. In this way, your child achieves success independently while developing cognitive, intellectual, and social skills, through a variety of activities, early educational materials, and social interactions. Studies have shown that children love learning with cartoon characters and that this method is also highly effective. The Learning Experience has a cast of cute, cartoon characters that help your child find success through their preschool education.
In addition to L.E.A.P, the center’s Summer Programs will enrich your child’s learning experience with outdoor activities, such as running obstacle courses and relay races. Summertime activities also include art, music, and science projects. The activities are designed to keep your child both engaged and challenged, while creating fond memories that will last a lifetime.
Employees of The Learning Experience’s partner companies can receive a generous discount off the tuition rates. Employees are even eligible for priority consideration on waiting lists. There are hundreds of partner companies including the Asbury Park Press.
The Learning Experience encourages parents to be active and involved; the Show N Tell smartphone app allows parents to check in on their child through photo notifications throughout the day. It also gives parents an easy way to organize and plan, such as notifying your child’s teachers of any upcoming absences, checking tuition balances, and staying on top of upcoming closures and events. The website also features many blog posts with all of the latest parenting tips and ways to support your child’s developmental milestones and learning experiences at home.
