Thank you for your interest in The Learning Experience Children's Academy located in Battery Park in Manhattan, NY in the historic Art Deco building which formerly housed the Downtown Athletic Club. Our center is now open and enrolling! We offer premier child care to children ages six weeks to five years and after school care for children up to eight years of age at most of our centers. The Learning Experience Children's Academy is not just a daycare facility but also a complete child development center with a dynamic and fun environment that is committed to quality care and education of your child.
Our parents have confidence each day 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 Children's Academy in Manhattan 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 curriculums 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 schools are 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, Pre-K and Kindergarten programs.
The Learning Experience® Children's Academy is extremely proud of our proprietary curriculum, “L.E.A.P”, or The Learning Experience Children's Academy's Academic Program. 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 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.
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®, Start to Art ®, Movin’ & Grovin’® and Fun with Phonics® 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.
