My daughter is a current student in the primary part of LEAP Montessori School, she started at the beginning of 2017. She has been in Montessori style learning for 2years and has really thrived. She has adapted well here and really likes going to school, which makes everything easier. I really have a sense of security when my child is at this school. This school is clean, safe, well structured and a warm and welcoming environment. I haven't experienced a high turnover in staff and the teachers that are there are genuinely loved by the kiddos that attend including mine. I love the random text updates I get of my kiddos accomplishments with new lessons or having a great time on a field trip as well as if something doesn't seem right with her I get an instant text or call checking in with me. I would recommend this school as a great place for great learning and fun!
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. (The details of their "battle" told here are made up, as are even the claims that certain people were are Montessori Graduates....) 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.
My son has been going to Leap since he was 18 months old (for nearly a year) and it has been the best experience for him! The owners, Betty and Sheila have been nothing short of wonderful; always being accommodating and understanding with us. The school and its staff have felt like a family to us from the very beginning. My son completely adores his teacher, Ms. Eloisa, and she returns that love and care to all of her students in the toddler room. Eloisa truly goes above and beyond with our son and all of the children. They learn something new every day, and teach the students real world application skills; we could not be happier with the school! As a bonus, the new location is perfectly set up, with a super cool room for the toddlers separate from the primary kids. The playground is huge and the kids get to spend a ton of time outside. We give them our highest review and recommendation :)
