Thank you for your interest in The Learning Experience® of Jacksonville, FL.  Our center is located on Southside Blvd, just one block south of Baymeadows Road. Our great location is convenient to both home and work for families on the Southside of Jacksonville. As the first The Learning Experience in Florida, we are proud to offer high quality child care to children ages six weeks to five years in a dynamic and fun environment that is committed to quality care. 


Our parents have confidence each day that their child is being taken care of in a loving and respectful way. We extend the offer to all families to come visit us and see why The Learning Experience in Jacksonville 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 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 proprietary "Little Learners" educational program has been developed for our infants to one year olds. It employs theme-based activities and written daily communication for parents about each child's day at the center. From there, children advance into the Toddlers program. Children who walk are ready and able to explore the toddler room, a specially designed space that encourages reinforcement of gross motor skills.  Two year olds advance to the Twaddlers program and once they are fully potty trained they become Preppers. Sometime between two and three years old, these great adventurers make use of their newly found independence and become involved in hands-on activities that prepare them for preschool. Preppers learn the wonders of science, computers and social studies in addition to the fundamentals of pre-reading, pre-writing and math.


Once children are of preschool age, three and four year olds, they begin to use our proprietary curriculum The Learning Experience Academic Program® (L.E.A.P®) realizes that how children learn is as important as what they learn. This curriculum encourages each child to achieve success acquiring invaluable cognitive and social skills while having fun. Our unparalleled Fun with Phonics® program is our early reading program that helps 90% of our preschoolers that completed the preschool program with us at TLE reading by the time they go to Kindergarten!
