Literacy Enrichment and Achievement Program (LEAP) is a kindergarten enrichment program that is offered in the afternoon every school day and operates as an extension to the morning kindergarten session. LEAP provides additional instruction and learning opportunities that are designed to enrich and expand upon the literacy skills that children learn in their core kindergarten program.

St. Peter’s LEAP was uniquely designed to allow each child to reach his or her highest potential. We seek to supplement the traditional kindergarten curriculum with an individualized learning program full of hands-on activities designed to develop each child’s character, concentration, socialization and work habits in addition to strengthening each student’s essential early literacy skills.

This enrichment is designed for ALL kindergarten aged children...from those requiring extra instruction and practice on basic literary skills to those who come to us with advanced skills and wish to be challenged.

LEAP is rooted in small group and individualized instruction for students where the teacher tailors instruction to the students’ individual learning styles and skill levels. The instructional approach ensures that children are taught in such a way that learning is personal, functional, enjoyable and developmentally appropriate. The framework of this program curriculum is unified and integrated through stimulating, creative and fun learning activities.
