Welcome to the Leeway School

The Leeway School is a private, non-profit, special education preschool that has served children for over 40 years. We are located on a beautiful four acre campus in Sayville, New York. We offer a warm, welcoming environment, designed to meet the needs of the children and their families. Leeway is staffed by full time special educators, certified school psychologists, licensed speech and language pathologists, licensed physical therapists, licensed occupational therapists, musical therapists and social workers. We offer every student a great deal of individual attention, and strive to ensure that each child is given the opportunity to live up to their full potential. Leeway's teachers and therapists communicate with parents on a daily basis, and our school welcomes parents to visit and observe their children at any time.

In addition to the high quality education and therapy services at Leeway, our students also benefit from a great social experience. Each child has the opportunity to interact with peers of the same age, establish friendships and learn appropriate social skills. These experiences will help your child grow both socially and emotionally, creating the optimal environment for them to learn and develop.

Here at Leeway, we are very proud of our facilities. Unlike many other schools, we offer spacious classrooms with an ideal student to teacher ratio. Class sizes are small and we do not exceed any more than eight or twelve children in one classroom. Our classrooms are exceptionally well maintained, extremely clean, and are always kept in accordance with proper safety practices. Our school also offers students an indoor physical education facility and an extremely large and well equipped outdoor playground. In addition to our daily activities and services, we also host a variety of special activities that permits the child to enjoy new experiences. Below are a few recent examples

Carnival Day

On Carnival Day, our students get the opportunity to participate in arts and crafts, play on a bouncer, and observe and interact with a variety of friendly animals.

Beach Day

All of our students look forward to beach day, where they get to play volleyball, have their face painted, and enjoy water games.
