Award Winning for a reason

Parents trust Leapstart with their children because we enjoy what we do, pay attention to details and work extra hard to set the service standards in our business. Leapstart has come to define how after schools are run across bay area since 2009. The five (5) star reviews over the years tell a story of our commitment to our customer community and kids better than we could ever do here. We have built this community over the years, bringing parents and children together twice an year for Holi and Diwali, usually with a huge event attendance in excess of 300. We continued to show leadership in difficult times and stayed open thru 2020 summer camps and school year offering parents online as well as onsite programs that proved to be a huge success. We invite you to check our website for our after school and summer camps program and hopefully you choose us and be a part of our community. Please click below to read about our safety practices.

We require that all kids wear masks inside the center. We keep a small teacher children ratio of 1:8 or less for younger kids. We take kids outside to play in small cohorts few times a week, weather permitting. All programs offer Hot freshly cooked lunch and evening snacks.

We like to keep our programs structured. After school program emphasis on homework and optional free and paid enrichment classes and club activities. We wrap the day with our 15 - 20 min "School of Life" circle where kids engage in games and role plays to learn interpersonal skills, healthy habits, effective communication and money matters.

We offer extended pickup at no extra charge until 6:30PM. We keep our doors open full day on school holidays like teachers learning day, thanksgiving break, winter break, mid year recess and spring break at no extra charge for those additional morning hours.

After School 2021-22

Leapstart After School program has been an award winning program for five years in a row in Cupertino. Much of this success stems from our commitment to our local community of parents and families and highest standards of service. Unlike other After Schools, you will find no mix of very small preschool children with School age children as we are focused on doing one thing really well.

Our program offers pickup services at a discounted cost from all Cupertino schools, hot freshly prepared lunch, Homework help, Academic and non academic enrichment schedule with a great variety of classes; and our doors stay open late until 6:30pm at no extra cost.

Starting 2021, We have also included a "life School" curriculum in our After school program schedule. This curriculum focuses on helping kids form healthy habits, learn time and money matters, interpersonal skills, communication skills and be more independent and responsible at home. Parents are already praising subtle positive changes that they see in their children's behavior at home.

During a very difficult 2020 school year, we opened our facilities in July 2020 and our staff demonstrated leadership in safety practices to successfully deliver services to our local parents & their children throughout the school year. Parents tell us that their experience has made us more reliable than ever before. No doubt, we are 1st choice for local families.

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.”

    Both my kids went to Leapstart after school program when school started in person last academic year. My daughter has been going to the after care and camps for 3 years now and my son, who … More started elementary school this year also started going there. We enrolled them into the summer camps here cause my kids love the place and the camps are a learning experience in a fun and safe environment. During these times, safety is a top priority and Leapstart staff makes sure that all the protocols are followed to ensure it, like temperature checks, regular hand washing/sanitizing etc. Freshly prepped meals everyday and healthy snacks are an added bonus. Friendly and experienced staff is able to manage the programs well while keeping the kids engaged and happy. Overall, a great place and I would continue to send my kids here for camp and after care.

    My daughter has been going here since august 2021 and she absolutely loves it, she always says she likes it more than kindergarten and she is always sad if we go get here around 5:30 pm, she … More wants to stay until they close. She loves the food and the activities they offer. We enrolled her in some sport programs at her school and the end time for the programs didn't match the pick up time that Leapstart did but the owner, Chitra, made it happend with another teacher picking her up and taking her to Leapstart. Chitra is also always available by phone and text with a fast reply.
