How It Started

LEAP SchoolHouse was founded and managed by Mr Lincoln Lim and Mrs Esther Lim in 2009. The school which is located at City Square Mall started out as an Enrichment Centre catering weekly bilingual programmes for preschool children and babies.

The school gradually expanded its services to include a Weekday Kindergarten programme for children between 2 and 6 years. Eventually in 2016, by popular demand, LEAP SchoolHouse converted its Kindergarten programme into a full-day Preschool at a bigger unit within City Square Mall. And LEAP SchoolHouse continues to offer Enrichment Programmes for preschoolers and babies under the same branding.

To date, the couple manages and continues to grow the LEAP SchoolHouse brand as well as the LEAP KIDS Preschool brand through LEAP Education Group.
