Your Child at Leapstart

At Leapstart, your child's safety and well-being is our top priority. That's why we have strict mask-wearing policies and small teacher-to-child ratios to ensure a safe environment. Additionally, we take advantage of the beautiful California weather by taking the kids outside to play in small groups as much as possible. Our programs are structured to provide the perfect balance of homework help and fun activities, including both free and paid enrichment classes and club options.

Our programs not only focus on homework and enrichment classes, but also promote the development of important life skills through our "School of Life" curriculum where children are made aware of important life skills such as effective communication, healthy habits, social and emotional learning, and time & money skills through games and role-playing activities multiple times during the week. And with extended pickup hours until 6:30PM and full day care during school breaks, we offer parents the convenience and peace of mind they need. Trust us to take care of your child and give them the tools they need to succeed.

During Summer Break, we offer exciting weekly summer camps that provide a fun and engaging environment for children while also giving working parents peace of mind and flexibility with their schedules. Our weekly themes ensure that children never get bored and look forward to the next week's camp.

After School

Leapstart After School program is an award-winning program for five years in a row in Cupertino. We take pride in our commitment to our local community of parents and families and the highest standards of service. Unlike other after-school programs, we do not provide a mix of preschool and after school care during same hours and specialize in serving school-age children, ensuring that our focus is on providing the best possible care and education for them.

Our program offers pickup services at no extra cost from all Cupertino schools, hot freshly prepared lunch, homework help, and an academic and non-academic enrichment schedule with a great variety of classes. Additionally, our doors stay open late until 6:30pm at no extra cost, providing flexibility and convenience for working parents.

One of the things that sets us apart is our "Life School" curriculum, which is included in our after-school program schedule. This micro-learning curriculum focuses on everyday actionable knowledge that helps kids form healthy habits, learn about time and money, develop interpersonal skills, and become more independent and responsible at home. Our approach has been praised by parents who have seen subtle positive changes in their children's behavior at home. We believe that our program provides a holistic approach to child development and helps children not only academically but also socially and emotionally.

We understand that choosing the right after-school program can be a daunting task for parents, which is why we invite you to take a tour of our facility, meet our staff, and learn more about our program. We are confident that you will see the dedication and passion that we put into every aspect of our program and how it can benefit your child.

Life School Curriculum

Our exclusive "Life Skills" curriculum is based on the latest research, which shows that the formation of habits and skills is most effective in children under 9. Our program focuses on developing key life skills that are not typically taught in traditional school curriculums, such as healthy habits, learning about time and money, social and emotional learning, and communication skills. Our curriculum also includes instruction on teamwork, problem-solving, and critical thinking, giving children the skills they need to succeed in any situation.

We believe that by providing children with these essential life skills at an early age, we are setting them up for success in all areas of their lives. We look forward to helping your child develop these important skills and reach their full potential.

Read 2020 reviews of Parents raving about Leapstart!

"Love how these set of teachers are handling and teaching kids to social distance and enjoy. Chitra, Tony and Ritu make learning n playing a joy. Be it spanish, art or worksheets kids develop an interest and don’t just do it because they are told. Food is exceptional. I wish u guys the best. Would surely recommend this place to my friends. Chitra’s guidelines are very clear and upto C.D.C. standards and I like how she send them out before the camp started so I could prep and know what was in plan. My kid is happy and feels normal after months."

"My daughter had attended LeapStart for after school care and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I begun putting her in the summer camps they offer. They do a lot of different activities and she always seems very happy. She also loves their food :-) Chitra runs a professional business and always keeps me up-to-date. During these very difficult times with COVID-19, I feel comfortable allowing my child to attend summer camp. Chitra has a lot of safety protocols in place that I feel are adequate.”

    My son loves going there after school. They have right balance of learning and playing, my son likes everything even eating there. Good quality home made meal is served as soon as kids reach … More to the center, which is a great relief for parents. Teachers and very friendly and keep kids engaged in various classes like dance/yoga/language/chess/basketball etc. Recently they organized holi celebration where kids performed dances which they prepared for months. Glad to know his interest in dancing. He also loved the summer camps last year, those are very enriched and panned, thanks for keeping him engaged in whole lots of activities.

    The after care team is unbelievably friendly. They have quite a few major events (holi celebration, at school diversity celebration, and quite a few more) which are fantastic and great way … More for parents to connect. The enrichment programs (e.g. dance, chess, stem, etc) are useful to keep the kids engaged. The kids take responsibilities in certain roles, and sometimes refuse to leave early as they are engaged in a very enjoyable way. We are very happy to be associated with the facility and the staff members and look forward to years of association.
