LEAP is located in Pod C of the Hartwell Buildings on the east side of the Lincoln School campus on Ballfield Road (see map). Inside there are four rooms dedicated to different grade levels: K, 1&2 grade, 3&4 grade, and Big Kids (Middle-School). These rooms are also used for daily activities such as project, elective, and STEM. There are lots of books, toys, and games, as well as a kitchen where students can heat lunch and microwavable popcorn and participate in cooking and baking projects led by a staff member.
We also have computers that are connected to the Lincoln School network, which automatically blocks Facebook and other sites that are inappropriate for children. Children may use the computers for homework if necessary. Otherwise they are allowed 15 minutes of computer time from 5:30-5:45 under staff supervision as well as occasional STEM activities.
LEAP’s on-campus location allows the program to take full advantage of the Lincoln School playgrounds and athletic fields. Children are escorted to and from other on-campus activities for which they’ve signed up, including Recreation Department activities, sports, music lessons, play rehearsals, Scout meetings and language classes.
