Welcome to Little Ivy Learning Center, a world of children and laughter, learning and acceptance, play and fun, parents and teachers.
As parents, we’ve learned that the best school for our children is one where teachers and staff come to know each of them—their talents and needs, their strengths and weaknesses— as well as we do. This school has small class sizes, and is led by experienced teachers in classrooms about the size of our family’s play room. As parents and teachers, we’ve seen that each of our children has a natural curiosity about the world around them, an appetite to understand and participate in that world, and the need to be nurtured as they master the skills they need to be successful and happy.We’ve seen that our children best master these skills with the help of teachers who truly enjoy the time they spend with them and have the experience to guide them each step along the way. As professional educators, we know that we best nurture the self-discovery and self-confidence of each of our students when we tailor our lessons to address the ever-changing social, emotional, physical and intellectual levels of each one of them. Our experience tells us that we need to be constantly aware of what each of them is capable of today so that we can successfully guide them to build on this to master the skills they’ll need tomorrow. These are our experiences as parents and teachers that led us to choose Little Ivy for our children. We are thrilled that you have decided to join us.
Our Guiding Principles
When children have a learning environment that is nurturing, trusting and respectful, they will develop self-confidence in their ability to learn.
Children who become self-confident learners are best positioned for success in school and well-being throughout their lives.
Each child learns best through activities that match their unique levels of social, emotional, physical and cognitive development with the new skill challenges that we present to them.
Every child feels successful and becomes a life-long, self-confident learner when they have opportunities through practice and play to master each new skill.
The healthy development of every child depends upon a strong bond between school and home.We will always strive to provide our students and their parents supportive links to reinforce lessons learned at school and at home.
School is one part of a broader community that actively engages children, parents, teachers and others in our neighborhoods and towns. We will strive to provide ample social opportunities for our students, parents and teachers, as well as opportunities to learn about and participate in our neighborhoods and towns.
