Preschool provider announced for Nocatee


The Learning Experience, one of the nation’s fastest-growing academies of early education for children six weeks to five years old, announced last week that it will soon be opening a location in Nocatee.

According to Rick Ray, President and CEO of The PARC Group, Nocatee’s master developer, “Nocatee’s success lies in its unique lifestyle, which blends a coastal location with world-class amenities and top-ranked schools.”

The addition of The Learning Experience within the master-planned community will provide Nocatee’s nearly 4,000 residents with access to early childhood education, expanding the available educational offerings beyond K-12 grade to include infancy through preschool.

With 90 percent of a child’s brain developing within the first five years of life, The Learning Experience places a prominent focus on programs that advance scholastic and social preparation, including its one-of-a-kind L.E.A.P. (Learning Experience Academic Program) curriculum and enrichment programs, which have been developed from more than 30 years of experience in the early education industry.

“At The Learning Experience, we provide early education in a way that enables students to learn, play and grow while they build foundational blocks for lifetime learning and accomplishment,” said Amy Alvarado, Director of Operations of Northern Florida for The Learning Experience. “Additionally, we have incorporated the advent of technological advancements into our platform for an even greater emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math.”

The Learning Experience’s well-rounded approach to early learning has proven to dramatically impact the lives of young children, producing the following results:

Early literacy programs at The Learning Experience have more than 95 percent of its preschoolers entering Kindergarten already reading.

Sign language programs for infants and toddlers that have proven to increase a child’s IQ 10 to 12 points higher than a child who didn’t learn to sign at an early age.

Social programs at The Learning Experience that cover topics such as manners and etiquette (Manners Matter) allow students to practice positive decision making and build self-confidence.

A proprietary philanthropy-focused curriculum at The Learning Experience teaches the core tenets of selflessness, generosity and giving at a young age and encourages children to apply such values in the classroom, at home and in the community. The Learning Experience’s unique philanthropy curriculum is believed to be the only nationwide curriculum of its kind.
