The Learning Experience® Opens First Center In Raleigh, NC, To Meet Growing Demand For Quality Care And Early Education
National Academy Of Early Education Hosts Community Event To Celebrate Grand Opening Of Its New Location
April 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // Raleigh, NC – The Learning Experience® (TLE®), the country’s fastest growing early learning academy for children 6 weeks to 5 years old, is pleased to announce the opening of its first Raleigh center, located at 8213 Quoin Way. An established leader in early childhood education in the region, this location is TLE®’s eleventh location in the State and 142nd location open and operating nationwide.
With greater national emphasis on educational development during the most crucial years of a child’s growth, a prominent focus at TLE® is placed on programs that create a foundation for scholastic advancement and prepare students for success beyond their formative years. “We are committed to doing our part to create a safe, secure learning environment and strong educational foundation for all our students which will have an important impact on the future of the community,” said Latha Siva, Center Director at TLE® Raleigh.
A report recently released by the U.S. Department of Education shows that expanding access to high-quality preschool will narrow educational achievement and opportunity gaps and reflect the real, scientific understanding that learning begins long before a child enters kindergarten. According to the White House Council of Economic Advisors December 2014 report on the “Economics of Early Childhood Investments,” early education provides benefits to society of $8.60 for every $1 spent.
“Children under the age of 5 are estimated to account for nearly 8 percent of the population in Raleigh, which can be attributed to the city’s improving economic conditions and fast-growing population of young working families,” added Siva. “As such, we are excited to provide quality early education and care for children in the area as demand continues to increase.”
The community was invited to attend TLE® Raleigh’s “Bubbles?’ Big Bash”-themed grand opening event held on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The event featured the early learning academy’s beloved mascot, Bubbles the Elephant?, and family-friendly activities such as face painting, a bounce house, balloon animals, arts & crafts, a karate demo, a magic show and food trucks. Additionally, there were free health check-ups and an opportunity for families to save on tuition.
TLE® brings to Raleigh its one-of-a-kind L.E.A.P. (Learning Experience Academic Program) curriculum and enrichment programs that have been developed from more than 30 years of experience in the early education industry. L.E.A.P.’s well-rounded approach to early learning includes early literacy programs, sign language, manners and etiquette, physical fitness, foreign languages, philanthropy, and many more programs that have proven to dramatically impact the lives of young children.
- Early literacy programs at TLE® have nearly 95 percent of TLE®’s preschoolers entering Kindergarten already reading.
- Sign language programs for infants and toddlers that have proven to increase a child’s IQ 10 to 12 points higher than a child who didn’t learn to sign at an early age.
- Social programs at TLE® that cover topics such as manners and etiquette (Manners Matter®) that allow students to practice positive decision making and build self-confidence.
- A proprietary philanthropy-focused curriculum at TLE® teaches the core tenets of selflessness, generosity and giving at a young age and encourages children to apply such values in the classroom, at home and in the community. TLE®’s unique philanthropy curriculum is believed to be the only nationwide curriculum of its kind.
