The Learning Experience Plans for Expansion in South Florida
The TLE Team
The Learning Experience, a collection of 110 centers nationwide for children age 6 weeks to 5-years-old, plans to open at least 10 locations in Palm Beach County, including two in the next year in Palm Beach Gardens and west of Lake Worth. CEO, Richard Weissman, discusses the company’s future and a recession-resistant business model that has allowed the company to open 75 new locations nationally over the past three years.
Richard Weissman, Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of The Learning Experience, has been selected to lead the Board of Directors for Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida. He will work with the board and Make-A-Wish team to fulfill the nonprofit’s mission of granting life-changing wishes to critically-ill children. His new role as board chair was effective January 2020 and will initially run through the organization’s 2020-2021 fiscal year.
Five-year-old Riley Chicino's tiny classroom chair has been empty since she was diagnosed with leukemia last summer. Riley's mother, Kaylie Manger, said the hospital stays and chemotherapy treatments have been a test of strength for her feisty daughter.
Two buses loaded with teachers, pupils, several parents and Christmas gifts rolled up to the La Casa Crisis shelter in Howell, and the preschool children from the Learning Experience school in South Lyon bounded off, happy and excited.
