The LEAP School, is a non-denominational private program founded in 1985 in Lexington, Massachusetts by Robin Shapiro, MA.
It is uniquely designed to support the diverse needs of toddler, preschool, and kindergarten youngsters and their families.
The LEAP environment is both dynamic and nurturing.
Our Mission is to foster positive growth in children, parents and teachers through caring, supportive and mutually respectful relationships within a safe, stimulating, child-centered environment.
Children, Parents and Teachers represent the three "Seeds of LEAP." Every child is seen as a unique individual with gifts.
We strive to nurture and develop the emotional, social, physical, and cognitive skills of every child.
The Language Enrichment Arts Program (LEAP) encourages self-awareness, self-expression and promotes self-confidence.
The LEAP faculty is dedicated to establishing supportive relationships with parents.
We believe in consistent, open and honest communication.
We value parent education, provide parent resources and welcome parent involvement.
As educators, we are committed to the professional and personal growth of our teaching team.
The LEAP School strives to lay the foundation for thoughtful, compassionate, respectful, responsible, and creative lifelong learners.
