Sheila Griffin is a very hard working professional, who has created a school with an excellent environment for children. Sheila has the training and personality to give children what they need to grow and learn. She understands the needs of children. It is a fine line that many do not understand, like she does. I would recommend LEAP to anyone looking for a topnotch school for their child or children.
I have observed the classrooms multiple times at different parts of the day with and without notice. The environment at LEAP is inviting and the books and educational supplies are from across cultures. The kids can get lost and transported to different worlds with the cute centers they have set up. No one can say the directors don't pour their heart and soul into their business. Sheila (Co-director) is a child and early education advocate. She doesn't do a thing without thinking of her kids at the center. That includes her professional and personal life.
My experience with this school and Ms. Griffin has been nothing but pleasant. My son adored her and stated constantly that she was his favorite teacher EVER. More importantly this is the only school my gifted son has been in that he has not told me he was bored with and that everything was easy. Although now I see a particular couple and their associates trying to trash this school and Ms. Griffin everywhere, that is due to retaliation and should be taken 'with a grain of salt,' so to speak. Ms. Griffin and LEAP do not deserve to become "casualties" of the "battle" being waged by some people. Attempting to ruin someone's entire reputation and livelihood because they stated some true things you don't like, and that didnt work to your advantage in court, is a very real form of abuse. Although some people are flinging accusations of neglect and abuse at this school, staff, and others it is only a 'Kansas City Shuffle' to distract from their own issues. Check public court records for the area if that's your pleasure, you can search for individuals by name.
