    I have been working at The Learning Experience full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The new owners are amazing. They have recreated the happy atmosphere that used to reside here. I enjoy coming to "work" every day and the day flies by. The love you receive from the children makes you feel fulfilled. The support and back up from the owners and the director is incredible. They implement a fun and educational curriculum while letting you out your own twist on it. They have a cleaning company that comes in to do nightly tasks, fantastic bonus incentives and support you growing your education.

    Cons

    Nothing huge-
    Trying to battle the rep from the old owners
    Some times low hours around holidays
    Battling concert traffic in the summer

    Pros

    TLE Of Lake Nona is a great place to work. I'm coming up on my 3 years of full time employment with the company.
    My manager Amy Alvarado and Elizabeth Vercruysse is very supportive and i know i can count on her when making tough decisions. We have a curriculum department at the Corporate level that works tirelessly writing out the curriculum so that our teachers have it orhganized and makes their job much easy.
    This is a great company to be at. I'm happy to be part of this team. It feels like family.

    Cons

    None at this moment at all.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is great and i love how everything works.

    I worked at The Learning Experience full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is none this is a baby sitting site/child care program.

    Cons

    There is no structure in the program. The turn over rate is very high and the children are often shuffled from classroom to classroom to meet staff child ratio. It's run like a rigid business environment no love or care for the children. The food is inadequate towards local food guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    Be more sensitive to the families and children that you serve. Become more caring and understanding that there's a huge problem with such high staff turned over rate in your program.
