Successful Nursery Franchise The Learning Experience Is Coming To The UK!

Top 100 franchises in Entrepreneur Franchise 500 for the last five years!


The Learning Experience is an early education company headquartered in Florida that the Weissman family founded over 30 years ago. Since a relaunch in 2002 the company has grown to over 450 nurseries open or in development in the US and has become recognised as one of the country’s most innovative and respected early education brands.

In 2020, when many US childcare businesses were closed or consolidating, The Learning Experience instead opened 40 new centres, and there are a further 50 due to open in 2021!

And now is your chance to run your own successful early education franchise as we are now looking for passionate franchisees in the UK.

What Does The Learning Experience Do?

At The Learning Experience, we develop state of the art facilities that offer small age-specific classrooms with appropriate resources. We also develop an in-house curriculum for each age, which changes every month, with themes, activities and materials provided for teachers. Additional programmes such as coding, yoga, foreign languages and sign language are also included.

We are known for innovation and moving quickly – during the first lockdown, we developed and launched ‘TLE at Home’ within a fortnight, which ultimately led to hundreds of age-specific class videos and materials being made available for parents to use at home.

We develop our own in-house systems for parent apps and digital classroom lessons on interactive screens, and we even have our own YouTube channel, ‘Bubbles & Friends’, featuring our main character, Bubbles the Elephant.

Why Join The Learning Experience


The UK childcare market is exciting and well supported, but we’re bringing something different, and we never stand still!

Education is more engaging and effective for children if it stimulates them emotionally and positively. We use fun characters to engage them and to bring the curriculum to life. We also ensure that we are teaching important life lessons, e.g., philanthropy, kindness, etiquette, healthy living, etc.

The UK nursery sector is a £6.7 billion market and growing. The last 18 months have highlighted the huge importance of early years provision and education.

You can become part of this growing and essential industry by running your own business but with the full training & support that comes from being a TLE franchisee today!

Michael Brown, Multi-Unit Owner

It is satisfying to be part of an organisation I believe in. I think that the current pandemic has shown the strength of TLE's Core Values.

Grace Huxtable-Mount, Multi-Unit Owner

TLE continues to look to the future and has proven the ability to lead and evolve in the current crisis. If I had to weather this storm alone, especially if I were a new business, I don't know how I would survive.
