Wonderful staff and great ratios! This is the warm, family environment we've been looking for housed in a professional Montessori curriculum. Our child truly enjoys going to school each day to do his "work". It is well structured with many different activities and skills for him to work on each day. It is truly developing a lifelong love of learning for our son. His progress is carefully tracked and communicated to parents on a regular basis. The staff are all very connected to the children and focused on their well-being. Thank you LEAP!

My son really seemed to enjoy this school and Miss Griffin was very invested in his education. She kept me up to date on his progress and really seemed to care about him. She even had the class make him a little book to say goodbye which was very sweet. Everyone communicates well, so if you have any issues at all I'm sure it would be easy just to let them know. We were sad to have to leave as my husband is in the air force and we are leaving NM.
