We are an 'open air' studio, a unique quality of Little Leapers, which means there is no door separating the classrooms from the lobby.  This allows for parents to enjoy and appreciate class along with our students. It also keeps our teachers on their toes giving your child the best class they deserve every visit. Finally, it is also an easy exit in case of an emergency. 


Parents, we want you to be informed! Make sure to read through our Parent Guide and Tuition and Policies.


We also highly encourage you to join our parents forum on Facebook.  This is a great place to get instant updates and ask questions.
