The Learning Experience

Newington, Connecticut

For more than 30 years, the founders of The Learning Experience, the Weissman family, have been positively impacting the lives of children by developing and implementing ground-breaking care and early education programs throughout the country. Starting in 1980 with a single location in Boca Raton, FL, the unique and proprietary programs that the Weissmans developed quickly caught on and expansion soon followed. The foundation of The Learning Experience was built on three key educational and care principles: cognitive, physical, and social; or as they say at TLE, “Learn, Play, and Grow!”
The Learning Experience is an industry leader and one of the nation’s fastest growing early education and child care franchises, with a proven track record of success for both students and center franchisees. More than 95% of pre-school graduates read before kindergarten, and more than 70% of center franchisees buy additional units or refer new franchisees to the company. As a testament to the opportunities TLE provides, many parents with enrolled children also become franchisees. There are more than 450 The Learning Experience locations open or under development across the country.
