Through two proprietary programs, Fun With Phonics® early reading and L.E.A.P® (Learning Experience Academic Program®), the children at TLE have the opportunity to learn how to read and build their academic skills. Over 90% of children attending The Learning Experience Centers during the 2008/2009 school year were reading by age 4 ½.  The curriculum also integrates two other very exciting classroom activities, Technology and Sign Language. Research shows that infants and young children who learn sign language can have IQ's as much as 12 points higher than those who do not. Nive believes that it is imperative for children to be fluent in technology in this high tech world we live in. 


Another place the children adore is a special learning area for role playing where they can exercise their vivid imaginations and build social skills. It is a miniature Main Street USA called Make Believe Boulevard®. At TLE in Shelby Township, MI children love to wear costumes and ride their vehicles as they role play in the shops and community buildings on the Boulevard.


We offer 2 snacks a day, hot lunches, pick-up and drop-off services for Kindergarteners, after care and dynamic enrichment programs.
