Parent Testimonials

The testimonials section of the website is for the purpose of sharing positive experiences:

“Three years ago when Steven graduated preschool, we never got around to write a parent testimonial for the website.

We were fortunate to discover TLC back in 2009. My son, Steven, started as a 2 year old back then. He graduated from the preschool in 2012. Our 3 year old, Jason, currently attends the daycare. The teachers and the programs at TLC have been top-notch since Day 1. My wife and I could not be happier. The last 6 years have been so great, we would not hesitate to recommend TLC to anybody looking for a high-quality daycare in Boca Raton.”

-David and Andrea S.

“To The Learning Center aka The Loving Center,we can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for our Isabella, especially Miss Barbara, Miss Beverly, Miss Marie, and Miss Quita. Thank you for all the love we received here. Lots of blessings to all!”

-Carmen, Clyde, & Isabella O.

“Our family cannot begin to express our gratitude for all the heard work, effort, love, and dedication shown to our children. This was our first experience with preschool and we could not have chosen a better place for our children to grown, learn, and develop their early learning and social skills. As a mom returning to the workplace, you gave me and my family the confidence and trust we were looking for in a school. It is a very difficult decision to leave your children with people whom you barely know, but your reassuring and understanding made the decision very easy.

Although the time comes for every child to move on to the next chapter of their life, we are truly going to miss each and every person at TLC. We thank you so much for all of the love and support you have shown our family. It is truly appreciated. Please let us know if there is ever anything we can do to give back to you the way you have given to us. Thank you & we love you!”

-Misty, Jason, Ava, and Lily H.

“I have had the pleasure of having Ms. Sharlene for Conner’s transition into VPK and Grace’s with the 3’s. Every time I see her and/or speak with her she puts a smile on my face with her warm welcomes and positive outlooks. She provides a great balance of grace and authority with the children and is a wonderful communicator to the children and to Brian and I. We have grown very fond of her!

This goes without saying that the teachers at TLC are all wonderful but I just wanted to reach out and share with you the lasting impact Ms Sharlene has given us in the short time we had her as a teacher for both our children. Thank you!”

-Heather B.

“To the amazing, wonderful staff at TLC,

I wanted to write this letter to express my thanks to all of you for the incredible care you’ve taken of my son for the last five years. It seems like it was yesterday that I dropped Ryder off to you the day after his first birthday for his first day of preschool. He couldn’t even walk! I was terrified and hysterical. But since that day, I have never worried once when I knew he was in your care.

I am still surprised at how each and every teacher in your school knew Ryder and had a personal relationship with him, whether they were teaching in his class or not. Each staff member was always helpful, respectful and pleasant. Your school is bright, happy and filled with total caring and love for children.

I know as a nervous, first mother I have called TLC to check in on my son constantly. I never once got a negative reaction from anyone. We have gone through some very hard times in our family and TLC was always there to support Ryder and myself through those difficult times. They say it takes a village to raise a child and for me, a single mother without much family, I could not be more appreciative to all of you at TLC for being part of my village in caring for Ryder.

I could not have been happier with our time at TLC. It’s very hard to leave such a warm, caring environment for my child. If only preschool could last forever! Thank you for preparing Ryder and ME for the next chapter in his schooling.

Thank you so much for everything!”

“Hi Miss Beverly

I just wanted to share with you something that happened yesterday. When I picked Kasey up from school she looked at me very serious and told me: Mommy you know, in the kitchen, under the sink there is a big bottle. But you should not drink it. It’s dangerous. If something happen you have to lay down, be quiet and call 911, yes mommy call 911, the fireman will come and help. LOL, I asked Miss Erika and she told me that yesterday they taught them about 911. It was so funny specially to see her little face, so serious lol. I’m so proud of her for remembering and learning something that important and I also want to thank you and her teachers for teaching her that. That’s why I feel so glad for having found TLC and have made it my little treasure’s second home. Thank you so much!”


“Hi Ms Beverly and Ms Marie,

Just wanted to say THANK YOU for the excellent quality of care that Andrew has received at TLC. Ms Kathleen and Ms Sharlene were wonderful, and I will always love Ms Tallie. Both of my boys will carry fond memories of your school with them as they journey on in life. I will continue to recommend your school to everyone I can. Please call me when the VPK graduation and class pictures are ready for order and pickup. I want to make sure Andrew has a lasting memory of his VPK years. We will visit often….”

“Dear Marie and Beverly,

My husband and I are so grateful to all of you for giving wonderful early in life learning opportunities to both our children. We are very excited about our move, however, pleasant memories involving children are always hard to leave behind. ”

-Anne-Marie & James D.

“Ms. Marie,

Thank you for everything TLC has done for our son, Steven. We can never forget the great experiences he has had there! Thank you!”

“Jennifer had a great time at TLC. Thanks to Ms. Christina and Ms. C for your care, love, and discipline. You two are on Jenny’s best friend’s list! Thanks to Ms. Beverly for your kindness.

“To TLC,My daughter Hali Jade graduated from your preschool and is now attending Addison Mizner in their Gifted Program. I would love to take this time to thank you for the great job you did with her for the three and a half years she was with you. She is light years ahead of the rest of her kindergarten class! Thank you again!”

-Ira Schneider

“Thank you for making my family a part of your family. We will miss you all so much as we try a new beginning. You all are truly beautiful people with special skills and talents that have touched our lives and many others. There will always be a special place in our hearts for every one of you. Thank you and God bless!”

-Brady, Chase, Jodi, and Brett

“In the beginning of our family journey at The Learning Center, I (as a first time mom) was apprehensive, nervous, scared and overly protective. As soon as I came into the school and spoke with the director, I felt a bit more at ease. It was the day following our meeting when we met Ms. Barbara, and instantly I knew we had found the right place! She loves the children and goes the extra mile for them in ensuring their well being and education. Our child has blossomed at The Learning Center with Ms. Barbara, and if it weren’t for us moving we would still bring our child. I have never seen a more positive, clean and nurturing environment! I am so happy with what our child has received here and cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for Ms. Barbara! The Learning Center is the greatest decision in a school that can ever be made for children of their age range! This is it! We love The Learning Center!”

-Sincerely, The Garrett Family

“As with most parents, trusting your child’s wellbeing to someone else is a very difficult thing to do, but the staff and the environment at TLC made us rest assure that our child was being well taken care of.

The facility is extremely clean and organized, there is always something fun and exciting planned for the children, the lesson plan is carried out as outlined on the monthly schedule so that the parents can interact and contribute with their child’s learning and there is structure for the child and constant communication with the parents that keeps both parents and staff on the same page.I can not say enough about some of the teachers that my child has come to love. He mentions them in his prayers at night and that’s how I know he was in good hands. Thank you TLC for the extraordinary job you do everyday. You will be missed.”

-The Frost Family

“Dear Ms. Tallie & Ms. Denise,
We just wanted to say thank you & let you know how much we appreciate all of your help & great advice with Olivia.

We love how much you love & care for her & you’ve been so helpful with her potty training. We cannot thank you enough.”

“Dearest Tallie,

You are a special person in Conner’s life and ours; you have left footprints in our life from all you have taught Conner in this early stage of life.

You truely have a gift with children and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity for you to be one of Conner’s first teachers in his school journey.

Thank you for all you do and for being you.


-The Brinley’s

“Ms. Marie,

The Learning Center has been a huge part of Olivia’s life for the past 4 years. Your school has been a great environment for Olivia and she truly has been given tender loving care (tlc)! She has never wanted to stay home & always looks forward to going back to your school on Monday or after vacation. She has been nurtured intellectually, socially, and emotionally; and is clearly ready for Kindergarten! Olivia has admired and respected all of the teachers she’s had and currently has. Beverly improved the curriculum of your school tremendously and the summer camp activities are fabulous! Olivia has made wonderful friends as have I at your school. We are going to miss the TLC Family!”

Thank you


“Our son is finishing up his 3rd year at TLC and we couldn’t be happier. He is excited to learn loves to participate and is confident to enter the world. The school is large enough to attract great teachers and fund improvements to keep the facility clean and up to date yet small enough to consider individual needs and make your child feel special. The school holds several shows and events throughout the year. They go the extra mile. We feel blessed that so many people referred this school to us. Our daughter started attending earlier this year and her vocabulary has increased 2000% in 6 months. She is also learning some Spanish to our surprise. She is socializing a lot more and loves to show us everything shes learned when she comes home. It is truly a great school with a great owner and many great teachers!”

-Jennifer Dilorenzo

“My children are very happy and look forward to going to school each day. Not to say that there wasn’t an initial get accustomed period. They bring home new songs, great art projects and information re: what they learned everyday. The teachers are all very involved with the children. I have NEVER heard a teach raise her voice. They seem a little harried at the end of the day, but I feel that is to be expected. They have a science guy and a story lady and a gymnastics class on a regular basis. There are very few choices in the E. Boca area. My husband I both like The Learning Center and would recommend it to other parents.”

“Though my child is going to another school at this point, we all want you to know that her very first school experience will be remembered mostly fondly.

You have all contributed to her personal growth in such a positive way. We could not have imagined a better start in education for her.

Thank you all for your patience, love, understanding, and endless energy. We admire you for it – and for your constant professionalism. We have and will always regard TLC as the best start for my child and hope can provide this same foundation for her sibling!

Again, thank you and take care of yourselves. ”

“The school has been a great. My children have all been happy and eager to go. They have certainly learned more than if they had stayed home. The teachers are more than capable and very loving and involved. The director is on site and easy to find. In addition, the premises are clean and neat. Other schools in the area that I toured do not measure up to The Learning Center. ”

“To The Learning Center,

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience my son and I have had with you. As you know, this will be Alex’s last week, as he is starting Kindergarten. TLC has helped him fall in love with school and he has blossomed under the wonderful teachers and through the great programs offered.”

Thank you,

-Jennifer Joyce & Alex Wright

“Dear TLC Staff,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at TLC for taking such good care of our daughter Kamryn for the past 2 years. The staff has always been helpful and most of all loving with our daughter. Even though Kamryn will be going to a school closer to home, we will always have fond memories of TLC. We wish you all the best and will definitely recommend friends and others to your school.”

Warm Regards,

-Seema & Kent Clothier

“Dear Marie and Staff,
Joshua’s last day at The Learning Center Preschool will be Thursday, August 14, 2008. He is leaving his TLC family to enter Kindergarten, and has had the best start because he has been in your care. There have been many changes at TLC since our older child Kali started there in the fall of 2000. We have watched the school expand and change, and it only gets better. TLC has been far more than a daycare; it has been a positive, loving environment, with nurturing teachers and so many new learning experiences! Thank you so much for giving both of my children the most positive start to their education and future. We will definitely be recommending TLC to any families looking for child care.”


-Kimerly Moran

“Director and Staff,

Let us first take the time to thank you all for the awesome care and education you have provided for our children. Your genuine love and concern for the children were very much appreciated. Joshua and Samuel Joseph will be leaving TLC on August 15, 2008. They have been accepted at the Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We will miss you all and all their little buddies. “Thank you.

“Dear Marie and all my favorite Ladies:

As most of you know will be Kylie last day.

I can’t believe Aaron and I have been bringing Maddy and Kylie to the Learning Center for 4½ years. Time certainly flies! I have thoroughly enjoyed all of you! I am happy about moving but very sad to be leaving all of you! All of you have touched us deeply and you will be surely missed.

Thank you”

-Heather and Aaron

“I am writing to you to inform that Alexander will discontinue at the Learning Center as of August 2nd, 2007. As parents we have had a great experience with your center and we are very grateful for the rich environment and very competent and loving teachers that have instructed Alex. Alex absolutely enjoyed your school and it really shows in his development.

We feel very confident he is sufficiently prepared for kindergarten in a few weeks time.

With Appreciation”

“Dear TLC Staff:

Though Brianna is going to another school at this point, we all want you to know that her very first school experience will be remembered mostly fondly.

You have all contributed to her personal growth in such a positive way. We could not have imagined a better start in education for her.

Thank you all for your patience, love, understanding, and endless energy. We admire you for it – and for your constant professionalism. We have and will always regard TLC as the best start for Brianna and hope can provide this same foundation for her sibling!

Again, thank you and take care of yourselves. Truly, it is a bittersweet departure.

Best regards”

“Dear Marie & Staff,

As requested, this is to confirm that my son will not be attending TLC after Friday. He will be at attending School with his big sister, Meghan. We have been very happy at TLC and are making this change for convenience, as well as long term considerations. If for any reason my son does not thrive at the new School, it’s great to know the door at TLC is always open. Thank you for taking such good care of my son!, sincerely”

-Christopher and Family


I am notifying you that my daughter’s last day at Learning Center will be Friday, August 6, 2004.

I want to thank the teachers for the excellent care and attention each one of them has given her during her stay at the Learning Center. I would also like to express my thanks to Kathy and Cindy for their support of Mom’s in the handling of “new” and difficult situations.

Please feel free to call me if you need any feedback for prospective parents. I would be happy to recommend Learning Center as it has been a very positive experience for my daugter.


-Lauren and Family

“Dear Marie

Due to personal circumstances, I have decided to terminate my daughter’s enrollment. Her last day will be Friday May 28th 2004. This has been a difficult decision to make. She has been very happy and comfortable attending your school. Ms. Fior displays tremendous amount of care and love for her children. The professionalism, love and care of the rest of the staff are not to go un-noticed. Everyone made the transition to a new school easier for my daughter and I thank you and your staff.


-Kate and Family


Please accept this letter as a notice for our daughter last day, which will be July 28th. She has enjoyed her time at The Learning Center and loved each and every day. Our son will continue on, we look forward to watch him learn and grow under your care, just as we did with our daughter.

Thank you for everything especially all the love your school showed our little girl.

You are the best!”
