Welcome to The Learning Experience® of Somerset, NJ! Our center is conveniently located at the intersection of Cedar Grove Lane and Easton Avenue in Franklin Township, minutes away from Exit 10 off Interstate 287. We offer daycare and child development programs to children ages six weeks to six years in a dynamic and fun environment that is committed to quality care and education.
Since opening the center in Feb 2004, we have established a reputation for quality childcare and curriculum-based education in a fun, loving and nurturing environment. Our committed and quality staff, many of them with us for over 5 years, has generated an outstanding reputation for providing superior care to the children of our community. We take special pride in prepping our children with superior social skills and learning abilities so that they can enter the public or private school system with confidence and continue to learn and develop.
We believe in true partnership with our parents and encourage open dialogue and conversation with regards to the development of our children. 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 Somerset is the perfect home away from home. To serve the needs of our parents and communities, we have also added supplemental services such as Baby Sitting Nights for our parents and Jelly bean Junction® Birthday Parties for our community.
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!
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 ® and Movin' & Grovin'® 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.
We work closely with employers in the area to encourage participation in our Work and Family Program through which employee discounts are available. Don't hesitate to ask us if your employer is a W&F partner!
