The People behind Leapfrog



the Director

Randolph Vaughan

For over 30 years I have devoted every waking moment to figuring out the mechanical process of how people learn. What started as a simple quest to make learning fun has evolved into a proposal to overhaul the entire educational process (see "thefrogblog.net" for details).



"My own education was spent studying the wrong things. After two degrees from Columbia (BA and MBA), I wasted 20 years traveling around the Middle East "playing" international finance. I was living in London when my son was born and everything changed. I became overwhelmed with a passion for the miracle of learning. Eventually, I realized that "motivation" is the key to everything and children learn best when the process is fun, relevant, and interactive. I believe preschool is the most important part of the educational process because this is where children figure out who they are and form the attitudes that determine all their future achievements. The Leapfrog teachers are a gifted team of professionals that have spent almost 20 years designing a preschool program that gets better every single year. Visit us and see for yourself!"

Maureen is a co-founder of the school and is still actively involved as a consultant. Maureen received her teaching degree from London University and brings 39 years of professional experience.



"I believe drama and role playing activities are essential when teaching young children to talk about their emotions." Socialization skills start with learning to be comfortable expressing your feelings. This leads to an awareness of the the feelings of those around you, as children learn empathy and the ability to appreciate other points of view. Because children love to play pretend, they eagerly participate in games where they "role play" being someone else. The best way to inspire children is by example.
