THE IVY KIDS DIFFERENCE

Ivy Kids is in a league of its own! Check out what sets us apart, and discover some of the many reasons why parents love and trust Ivy Kids.

PHILOSOPHY

At Ivy Kids we believe all of our students are unique individuals and it is our philosophy to treat them as such. We believe in creating a “home away from home” for your child so that they can grow to their fullest potential in a safe and nurturing environment. Unlike other childcare providers, we aim to appeal to your child’s ability to develop their unique emotional, intellectual, social and physical intelligence. Lastly, when it comes to academics, Ivy Kids understands the importance of including families in celebrating your child’s achievements and developmental milestones. By creating and maintaining a strong relationship between home and school, the new skills your child will develop will soon become second nature.

SAFETY

At Ivy Kids, your child’s safety is one of our top priorities. We incorporate multiple safety features into our facility including:

Watchmegrow internet cameras in all classrooms for full-day monitoring from your desktop or handheld device for your peace of mind. Watch your child child flourish!

Auto-lock doors and gates to permit only registered family and friends into the facility.

Touchscreen monitors in the lobby for self check-in, check-out, and payment for speed and convenience during the morning and afternoon rush

Patented safety procedures designed to keep your child safe and secure whether they are inside the classroom, in the playground or on a field trip

IVY PREP CURRICULUM

IvyPrep is a Multiple Intelligence based curriculum developed from Harvard Professor Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory that every individual is gifted in different ways, and these intelligences are processed in different areas of the brain. We believe that each child has their own special genius. By tapping into their genius we can unlock their limitless potential.
