LEAP is a top notch program, and we are so thankful for the teachers and director. Our son and daughter both attended the preschool, and we loved it. The staff are incredible, and they truly care about the students and their growth. It was a sad day for our family when it was time to graduate from LEAP! I would absolutely recommend the program.

We absolutely love LEAP school in Bedford. We moved right at the start of the pandemic and didn't know where to look as there are so many great schools/centers for the kids in the surrounding towns of Bedford. The staff is so loving and caring and has looked after our daughter as if she was one of their own. They helped us navigate through some challenges we were having and assisted us in every way possible to make sure our daughter is set up for success going off to kindergarten. I couldn't recommend LEAP enough!

This is an excellent program with a thoughtful curriculum focused on art and science which is perfect for this age group. May show among other traditions make it a wonderful community to be a part of.

My son has been at LEAP for the last four years. We have found the administrators, teachers, and enrichment specialists (science, music, drama, and yoga,) to be truly top-notch. They all are experts in their field and provide an energetic and nurturing environment where each child is made to feel special and encouraged to explore and learn new things. He has been so happy at LEAP and I feel he is well prepared to enter kindergarten this year.

Our two sons have both attended LEAP since they were two and we have had nothing but a positive experience. All of the staff and teachers are thoughtful, kind, warm and caring and many of the teachers have been there for years. Our kids love it there and we are so thankful for all of the fun, love and learning they have experienced at LEAP.

We love the Barn! Our child has had a wonderful, positive experience there. The teachers are warm and nurturing and absolutely marvelous when it comes to understanding children and the best ways to connect with them and allow them to explore play in fun and safe ways.

We love the Barn! My daughter who has always been on the shyer side was immediately welcomed and brought into this amazing community. After only the first couple days she woke up and asked if she could go to the Barn every singe morning! I love the thoughtful and caring nature of all of the teachers. This school does an amazing job of letting kids freely play both outside and in as well as make choices for themselves. Their program allows kids to grow their sense of independence, curiosity, imagination all while having a ton of fun! I'm excited to send my next daughter to the Barn in the years to come!!

We have loved our time at TCM. All three of our children-- all very different-- had a great experience. The emergent curriculum is play-based, so the...

We love The Barn! Our third daughter is entering her third year at The Barn, and her two older sisters are Barn alumnae who jump at the chance to go back to visit their beloved preschool, teachers, and playground any time they are able. The teachers at The Barn are so loving, patient, and kind - they truly are toddler- and preschool-whisperers. The space in the historic Scout House is bright and cheery, and the playground is the best - fairy gardens, giant blocks, a stage, etc - who could ask for more? The co-op aspect of The Barn is very sweet - the parent helping mornings are such fun, and we have loved the many social gatherings both for parents and for the whole family. If you are looking for a true sense of community and a wonderful place for your child to grow and learn, The Barn is the right place for you!

My two boys attended The Barn Cooperative Nursery School from ages 2 - 5 (2012 - 2017). It is a preschool where kids are encouraged to be kids and grow and learn through play, creativity and friendships. The Director, Susan Boyle, and her staff are not only incredible teachers - they are warm, open and accessible which sets the tone for school. They genuinely knew and cared for my boys. I credit The Barn with making our move to Concord a seamless one. I will always look back at those years with thanks and fondness and feel fortunate that our family was part of such a welcoming and nurturing community.

The Barn was home to my children (and me) for five years, and still is today. They knew my children--and all children--incredibly well, and offer a curriculum that is inclusive of every child and every learning style. It was also a real community for me and my husband: we met many of our closest friends at the Barn, and still feel a deep connection to the teachers and the school today. We could not possibly have chosen a better place for our family to attend preschool.
