Welcome to Hearts Leap Schools!

It is our aim to provide an exciting, stimulating and creative environment and education for children. We believe that education is a lifelong process and that all adults and peers with whom they come in contact influence children. Parents and Early Childhood Educators are partners in making school a positive and beneficial experience for young children.

Hearts Leap Schools are a project of the International Child Resource Institute (ICRI), a non-profit corporation dedicated to the effort of promoting outstanding programs for children worldwide. Hearts Leap School was founded in 1990 to provide a warm, secure, nurturing and stimulating preschool for local children and their families and in 2008 Hearts Leap North opened to better meet the increasing demands for quality early childhood programs.
