The Learning Experience Franchise

Since 1980, TLE® has positively impacted the lives of children by developing and implementing ground-breaking care and early childhood education programs throughout the country. As it was from the start, the foundation of our approach is built on three key educational and care principles: cognitive, physical, and social—or as we say, "learn, play, and grow!"

To buy a franchise with The Learning Experience, you'll need to have at least $150000 in liquid capital.

Values & History

The Weissman family had a groundbreaking vision for early childhood education. The unique and proprietary programs they developed quickly caught on and expansion soon followed.

From our curriculum to our vibrant centers to our lovable characters, TLE® has always taken an innovative approach to daycare and early childhood education. The result is an experience that's as effective as it is fun.

Industry Performance

Market Demand & Advantage

TLE® is America's fastest-growing daycare franchise and a recognized leader in the daycare and early education industry—with over 450 centers open or under development. This is your opportunity to be part of an amazing brand dedicated to making a positive difference in children's lives as they learn, play, and grow with us.

At TLE®, our real estate model is unique in the industry. Our real estate team goes out, finds the location, works with developers to build, equip and set up the center, then hands you the keys. We then provide world-class training and support for you to run your center effectively.

Our students aren't the only ones on the track to succeed. Our daycare franchisees succeed, too. 45% of TLE® Centers are owned by multi-unit owners. That's one of the reasons TLE® was ranked #62 on Entrepreneur Magazine's Top 500 Franchise list, and why Franchise Business Review ranked us "Best of the Best" in its list of 2019's Top 200 Franchises.
