Read Reviews of Parents raving about Hot & Freshly made Indian Lunch

"LeapStart is a wonderful place for kids. Excellent energetic teachers with a great positive attitude. The place is cozy with a nice colorful kid-friendly setup. They serve very fresh delicious lunch and snacks served to all kids when they arrive from school. My daughter is a picky eater, and such warm homestyle food was very helpful to improve her appetite. Pick-up service after school with homework help is great and we liked many other year around fun activities organized by the team. Appreciate their flexible program and service."
