Our Environment


As you enter our lobby you feel an energy of warmth and love

Our students and families know we are a different kind of "school." People comment that they feel that difference even as they enter the parking lot. Kids and staff are laughing, sharing and talking. There is joy!

At LOL, teachers and office staff are welcoming. Kids are kind. It’s a place where students feel nurtured and safe. Leaves of Learning is located in the former St. Nicholas Academy building in Deer Park. This large space offers many possibilities for us to get creative! The spacious, light-filled classrooms–many of which have original wood floors and woodwork–make it feel more like an extension of home than an institution. The large stage and workspaces provide plenty of room for the kids to showcase their presentations and plays, and for teachers to set up the large-space projects so necessary for hands-on learning. Our science labs have plenty of room for all our lab tables and equipment! Kids play and picnic on the grounds surrounding our building, and are transported by bus to the spacious park just blocks from our facility. In the words of one of our long-term students: "This is our best building ever! It's like a castle!"
