The Ivybrook Academy approach enables each student to travel down their own individualized learning path.
“Our educators sit down with students on day one to find out what interests them. Then they tailor learning to meet the child’s needs. It also gives each student a choice in what they want to learn about,” says Sheila.
Ivybrook’s unique and progressive curriculum allows children to embrace their curiosity and learn in their own style. For example, classrooms are filled with beautiful, nature-inspired materials that children want to touch immediately. From dissecting flowers to piling up pasta, they love using their hands to learn more about reading, writing, math, and science.
Ivybrook Academy is a nationwide network of pre-schools that offer a balanced, multifaceted approach to early childhood learning. The curriculum is a hybrid of Montessori and Reggio Emilia concepts and Multiple Intelligence Research. The result is a top-quality pre-school experience that meets the individual needs of little learners through a collaborative approach to early childhood education.
For Sheila and Chris, they are delighted to provide this concept in their community. “We are looking forward to watching our students of all ages learn and grow in the new, exciting environment we’re bringing to Mooresville,” explains Sheila.
Children at Ivybrook can expect an atmosphere defined by focused, individualized attention that allows them to learn at their own pace and in their own style. They take an active role in their learning.
Ivybrook believes in a strong partnership between families and committed educators. An ideal early learning environment consists of opportunities for children to explore, create, solve problems, and work collaboratively with others. This deepens their understanding of the world through meaningful social interaction and frequent reflection with their peers and adults.
Ivybrook Academy believes that children are born with a natural curiosity about the world; and that cultivating this curiosity with careful listening and support is the key to successful lifelong learning.
