We offer an after-school program for your children in grades 1st-6th. We serve healthy snacks and lunch, as needed. The program operates in alignment with the school calendar, including extended hours for half & full days and teacher workshop days. The school district bus will pick them up in the morning and drop them off in the afternoon.

We will provide them with a safe and supervised environment where they’ll learn to work with other kids. They will be inspired to become active members of our community, learn the importance of volunteerism & socialization, and will have an inviting place to do homework. We emphasize leadership training, health & safety awareness, and community service in an effort to enhance development.

  •         Safety is our #1 priority, followed by engaging learning experiences
  •         All staff members are professionals and CPR trained
  •         Time establishments for homework and recreational play
  •         Daily wholesome snacks & beverages
  •         Healthy breakfast and lunch available when students are in full attendance

Our FAMILY FOCUS is committed to providing your child with a program that allows them to participate in self-directed activities and ones led by adults, before & after a more structured school day. The pace of the program reflects the needs of the children.

School Age Programs work as respectful partners with families and schools. Staff members share their insights, questions, and knowledge of community resources to best support you and your family.

Optional care is available for school vacation weeks and summer programs can also be offered if enough families wish to participate. Care is available on half-day and full-day teacher workshop closings.

Testimonials About The Ivy Academy

When we found The Ivy Academy from the beginning we liked the treatment that Ms. Amy gave us. Our daughter Betsy is special care, she felt comfortable with the teachers and the atmosphere there in the nursery. Our other son Damian has been here since the age of 6 here he learned many things from numbers, letters, and colors. This has served him a lot in his development. My wife Erika and I are very pleased to have them here at The Ivy Academy of Early Learning Inc.

Jeanette Mihalec

As every mother would, I definitely was looking for a school that I could rely on. Trusting your child in someone else’s hands isn’t easy, however Little birdies proved that I can be calm about my kid’s wellbeing and education. Thank you so much!
