At Ivy Primary Prep, we want to expose our Little Ivies to the world beyond. Our curriculum is focused on academic enhancement combined with play and is designed to introduce a range of subjects. Our geography and social studies curriculum will take them through the U.S. and around the world to explore different countries and cultures. Movement is based on the belief that there is a direct connection between physical health and a child’s ability to learn. Science is explored through hands-on experiments and sensory exploration. We challenge our students to grow while nurturing them to foster independence.
At Ivy Primary Prep we focus on development of the whole student by emphasizing a curriculum that includes physical, social, and emotional components. Our curriculum revolves around interactive learning where our students are challenged with hands-on, project-based instruction to help develop skills and intrigue their curious minds. We focus on developing skills at an early age, which can later help with their independence and self-confidence. Our teachers monitor their students’ learning capacity to help them achieve maximum academic success.
At Ivy Primary Prep, we value teacher and student engagement as a crucial component of fostering an academically challenging environment. Engaged teachers create engaged and successful students. We are committed to supporting and funding continuous teacher development. Our teachers enjoy creative freedom and take pride in our curriculum and lesson planning. In our classrooms, teachers group students at similar skill levels and ensure Little Ivies stay engaged through use of the workshop model.
Ivy Primary Prep has designed its classroom with fundamental goals in mind. Each classroom is designed to be a learning space equipped with a variety of resources for students to be intrigued and stay engaged in scientific experiments, geographical exploration, music, mathematics, language arts, dramatic play, art, and sensory activities.
