As we head towards the last few days of school, you and your child might be discussing how they should spend their summer. Should they take enrichment classes? Is summer camp an option? Maybe they are burnt out from the school year and need to spend some time at home.
Recent studies have shown the increasing importance of active academic and social stimulation throughout the summer. Researchers have linked an excessive amount of time off during the summer to lower test scores and a gap in a student’s academic knowledge. This phenomenon is typically referred to as the Summer Slide.

How can you prevent the Summer Slide?
How Ivy Kids Prevents the Summer Slide
Ivy Kids understands the importance of summer education as it relates to your child’s academic and social development. With the idea of preventing a Summer Slide in mind, we’ve developed eleven themed Summer camps that are filled with reading, writing, science and math activities, and engaging field trips. Our camps also focus reversing the knowledge deficiency that takes place over the summer by providing school preparedness in math and writing.
Our summer camps cater to all children with various interests. Your kids can discover their inner Paleontologist during Dinosaur Camp, learn how to cook a scrumptious Sunday night family dinner dish at Bon Appetit Camp, and channel their inner Olympian (while getting plenty of physical activity) at our Olympics Camp… just in time for the Rio Olympics. There’s even a Back to The Future Art camp for the next Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerbergs of the world who love anything tech-related.
The learning never stops at Ivy Kids. We understand that development truly begins at a young age, and our preschool and camps are designed to help spur that among our camp-goers.
The stakes are high for your child’s intellectual and physical growth! Do you want to give your child an advantage their development by investing in summer camp and wiping out the Summer Slide? Contact us today for help on which summer camp will be best for your child.
On the heels of rapid expansion, with five new facilities planned to be built throughout the State of Texas in 2016, Ivy Kids Early Learning Center, an innovative early childhood education center, has announced it will be participating in the “Franchise Expo Dallas” this weekend, May 14-15 at Dallas Market Hall. The expo is the largest event of its kind in the DFW Metroplex for prospective entrepreneurs looking to own business. Ivy Kids is looking to make a big splash at the Expo, as the innovative childcare company secured five franchisees in four months after opening up the business to franchisees in January 2016.
After building the first Ivy Kids facility in 2005, the company opened up six other locations within the next eight years, citing the rise in dual-income families and research that placed an increasing value on quality childcare with an emphasis on early learning development.
Of the company’s continued growth, Ivy Kids Partner Amyn Bandali says, “Parents are valuing early-childcare education more than ever, and Ivy Kids offers a specialized learning center where a child can be engaged in an intellectually stimulating environment, complete with specialized curriculums by age and quality nutrition not found in any other child care center.”
The childcare industry has been one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, and does particularly well compared to other industries in a recession. Statistics from the Small Business Association show that franchisees looking for an opportunity to invest in the childcare industry experienced some the lowest failure rates, with only 5% of SBA loans failing, compared to failure rates of major well-known restaurant franchises.
To differentiate itself from other top competitors in the childcare space, Ivy Kids has emphasized the following four factors:
