LEAP opened in 1992 as an outreach of Leeds Episcopal Church. We are committed to providing a safe, caring and supporting atmosphere in which the unique value of every child is affirmed. The program also enables preschool children, regardless of race, gender or religious affiliation, to explore the ever-changing world that surrounds them.
We believe that each child is a child of God, unique, special and a part of our world, to cherish and guide with compassion and respect.
Leeds Church has sponsored a preschool since 1970 when Florabelle Fairchild, wife of then Leeds Rector Llewellyn Fairchild, founded St. Andrews Day School. This school provided preschool and kindergarten classes since there was no public kindergarten at that time. Under Mrs. Fairchild’s wise and loving tutelage, children from all over the Markham-Hume-Ada area began their education at the Leeds Parish House for over 20 years. Mrs. Fairchild closed St. Andrew’s School when her husband retired in 1991. Within a year, members of Leeds, including many young mothers, decided that there was still a need for a preschool in the area, and determined to continue Mrs. Fairchild’s work. Leeds Episcopal Activity Preschool (LEAP) opened in the fall of 1992. LEAP takes pride in reflecting the heritage of quality education that Florabelle Fairchild left for Leeds Church and the surrounding community.
