When my child began at LEAP she was consistently identifying 17/26 of her letters. She would add and subtract digits to 10, and followed 2 - 3 step unrelated directions. Unfortunately, she had a frightening experience at a state preschool, and she was unwilling to return each morning.

Since she's been attending LEAP, she identifies 26/26 letters with no cueing, continues to add and subtract digits to 10, and most importantly, has begun asking me to leave her later and take her earlier. She feels secure in her environment, is thriving with the practical lessons, is making friends as well as either maintaining or surpassing her previous educational standards.

Being in this environment, she is learning to communicate with children who are younger and older than she, and she's expected to take responsibility in her daily routines and lessons that other schools wouldn't offer her during preschool. LEAP fosters a sense of independence and incorporates a structure that creates intrinsic rewards. I wouldn't hesitate (and haven't) to recommend LEAP to other parents seeking a school that recognises the child for the individual s/he is.
