I had my grandson in Island Kids. He look forward to attenting Island Kids everyday. Not only did they teach him to read,write they touched on his weaks areas in speech irregularity that need attention and work on those areas and kept us informed on his progress everyday. The staff is aware of the needs for each child and also keeps the parents informed of the childs progress. He learned how to work with other children and help each other out. My grandson is in 3rd grade now and he has carried the teaching that were instilled at Island Kids with him to this day. I have a granddaughter now and we are going to be looking into putting her in Island Kids it is alittle bit of a drive for us but I cannot find a school that meets the needs of a child like Island kids does.

My son (and I) LOVE Island Kids. I looked at The Learning experience and they are just a franchise operation and it feels like that, too corporate and not enough 'caring' for the children. Soooo glad I chose Island Kids and their 'family' ownership and feeling.

Island Kids-Greenlawn. As a parent and a special education teacher I was looking for a school that had a strong curriculum as well as nurturing staff and found it all when I was looking for both my children to attend last September. My daughter has graduated from the preschool program and will begin Kindergarten in a few weeks more than prepared for what will be expected for her and my son will continue to attend until he begins Kindergarten in September 2013. They have been very accommodating with my children's confusing schedules and I'm very appreciative of that as well!

The Learning Experience in Northport is the best daycare/ school in the area. After much research and having my children in a different facility, I made the perfect choice. This is a completely professionally run day care. Love the letters sent home daily...at my convenience, I can read what my children learned, ate and experienced that day while I couldnt be with them.

Island Kids has the best staff, and they have gone out of their way to work around my busy work schedule. Kyle & Stacey run a great school, that cannot be matched by any other.

The Learning Experience® Northport is great! The TLE® company has been around since 1986. Me and my kids love having birthday parties at Jellybean Junction®. TLE® childcare centers are amazing.

Island kids is the best school!!!!!!!

Our child has been attending Island Kids of Northport going on two months. We can already see the difference in our child. I remember our child crying when left at school in the morning. It broke our hearts to see him cry, but we also saw how caring and comforting Miss Sara was towards him. Miss Sara assisted us in transitioning our child from home care to school care. She made suggestions along the way that really facilitated getting our child to enjoy coming to school. Now we have the challenge of getting him to come home without crying because he wants to stay at school.

Island kids!!!!!! We have had nothing but wonderful years there!

Island Kids - The place is so clean !
Rachel G. August 23, 2013 at 11:44 AM
I'm very surprised by people suggesting Island Kids. We had a terrible experience there..and have spoken to several other parents who feel the exact same way. My vote would be for any facility except Island Kids.
