nothing without joy

At the very core of our beliefs, actions and play-based philosophy is the understanding of the child as a unique and curious learner. At Ivy, our children’s social and emotional well-being is paramount. Our focus during the early years is to nurture in students a lifelong love of learning through wonder-driven investigations, awe-inspiring play invitations, and loving relationships to make meaning of the world around us.
