The Learning Experience® (TLE®), the nation’s fastest-growing early learning academy, in Blackwood, NJ, raised $2,300 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as part of the early learning academy’s philanthropy curriculum.

The funds will go towards research for a cure and addressing the challenges of everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.

This slogan for the philanthropy program at TLE®, “it doesn’t matter how big or small you are, it’s the size of your heart that matters,” captures the lessons learned in this first nationwide program created for preschoolers. 

During the month of May, preschoolers at the Blackwood TLE® helped coordinate and – along with their families, teachers and local community members – participated in MS Walks around the school and Washington Lakes Park.

Additionally, they sold candy and raffled over 25 baskets. In total, their efforts resulted in $2,300 raised for the MS cause.

No strangers to philanthropic deeds, children enrolled at TLE® learn year-round how philanthropy's core tenets of selflessness, generosity and giving can be applied to their classroom, home life, and community for years to come.
