June 2024

There is so much to be grateful for! It feels like LEAP is surfing a wave of positive energy. Our most recent Family Fiesta was a joy. Our Lompoc construction is moving forward, and it’s so exciting to see the progress we’re making toward doubling the number of Infant and Toddler childcare spaces there.

If you’d like to see what all those good feelings are about, please come visit. We’d love to share our work with you.

It’s spring and our Children’s Center garden is full of yummy herbs and leafy green vegetables. Gardens encourage sensory exploration, enhance cognitive development through observation, and foster an appreciation for the natural world.

April 2024

One of LEAP’s core values is joy. We believe that everyone deserves joy in their life, and that part of our work is to cultivate and celebrate joy.

April is Child Abuse Prevention month. It’s serious business, preventing child abuse. One thing every adult can do is to build positive, healthy and joyful relationships with the children in your life. This month, I encourage you to be silly, to do something joyful and unexpected, and to create some joyful memories.
