Mission and Philosophy


Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children come to play purposefully, learn intellectually and instinctively, and grow into responsible citizens. Love grows here.


At The Ivy Preparatory School, we believe in educating the whole child and building personal connections with each family.

The Ivy is a happy and safe environment which allows children to feel secure, engaged, supported and challenged. We foster the development of emotional resiliency and self-regulation through stable and committed relationships with each child and their family.  By nurturing the whole child we support children in developing these skills so they can best use their innate curiosity to learn about the world around them. Children have the opportunity to reason, hypothesize, experiment and analyze throughout each day. Utilizing Conscious Discipline, The Ivy teaches and provides the children with the skills and instruments to self-regulate, self-soothe, attend and process their experiences.  Children at The Ivy learn the importance of Respect Self, Respect Others, and Respect Property. These skills are essential throughout their educational journey and their development as responsible citizens.
