Operating as usual


In the Reggio Emilia approach, the classroom is often referred to as the "third teacher" (after parents and teachers).

With this philosophy in mind, the layout of our classrooms is carefully designed to promote curiosity and independence. By providing access to materials at their height, students are inspired by self-directed exploration and are invited to engage in meaningful activities.


School will be closed on Monday, February 19, 2024, for Presidents’ Day. We will welcome our students back on Monday, February 20, 2024. We hope all of our families have a great weekend together!

✨Ivybrook Educator Spotlight - Miss Lilly✨

Miss Lilly is a teacher in our Transitional Kindergarten classroom.

"Hi! My name is Lillian Fletcher but I usually go by Lilly. I have my degree in Human Development and Family Sciences. I have been with Ivybrook since the beginning of 2023 and have loved every minute of it! In my free time, I love to cook and bake, watch TV, and go to the movie theatre! My biggest dream is to live somewhere beautiful, have a family of my own one day, and see how incredible it is to watch children learn and grow daily! The thing I enjoy most about working with children is seeing how much they are truly capable of. Without limits they are so authentic, boundless, and free to explore our world; I am so grateful to be able to watch and guide this growth."

Miss Lilly brings such a bright energy to our school. We are so lucky to have someone so patient, cheerful, and loving on our team here at Ivybrook Academy! 💚


Our students will be celebrating the wonderful relationships they have built in their classroom communities with 🎉Friendship Parties🎉 this week on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Sign ups to contribute to the party were sent out via email last week.


Our approach to teaching math emphasizes the connection between the senses and learning.

Students are guided through activities that involve touch, sight, and sound to reinforce mathematical concepts while using manipulatives like number rods, counting beads, and geometric shapes.


Due to icy road conditions, school will be delayed until 9:00 a.m. today, Monday, February 12th.

Our Threes class learned about the Chinese New Year! Our little ones had so much fun making their own mini dragon with streamers to celebrate. It is always fun to learn about different cultures and how people celebrate around the world.

This past week our students learned about zoos and endangered animals 🦓🦏🦧. We designed zoo habitats, made animal inspired art, and even washed some of our zoo animals. We love exploring different topics with our children and seeing them invested in their work!


Happy February!

We are 🍀 lucky 🍀 to have such an incredible school community to serve! Here are are this month's events to note on your calendar.


🌿Ivybrook Insight🌿

What types of snacks are offered at your school?

Each child is served a nutritious, peanut and tree nut free snack every day that they attend school. Snack time is not only a time to nourish our students growing bodies and minds but is also a time to build a classroom community through a shared meal.


We distinguish ourselves from other preschools by structuring our classes into half days. These half-day programs optimize children’s time away from their families by providing developmentally-appropriate learning opportunities customized to each child’s needs.

✨Family Spotlight✨- Meet the Stravlo Family!

“Ivybrook has been such a blessing to our family. The staff is so kind and supportive. Autumn asks everyday when she gets to go to school and is sad she can’t go on the weekends! She has really grown socially and educationally. The projects she does are hands on and she truly learns by doing. We were so nervous to put her in school, but Ivybrook was 100% the right choice for her. She has BLOSSOMED! We are so happy with the school and we love Mrs. Reyna!”

We loved seeing everyone’s pajamas the past few days! Wearing PJs while learning about hibernation makes it all the more fun!


✨Ivybrook Educator Spotlight - Miss Isabella✨

Miss Isabella is a teacher in our PreK classroom.

"Hi there! My name is Isabella Wilson (or Miss Bella, as some kiddos like to call me) and I am thrilled to be a part of your child’s learning journey! I’ve worked in early childhood education for over 6 years now, and my passion for helping children continually grows. I am currently pursuing a degree in nursing and my biggest aspiration is to become a pediatric nurse. When I have free time, I love to spend it reading, working out, traveling, cuddling my cats, or going to the movies with my family. A silly fact about me is that I am a huge nerd — I love all things anime and video games! I’m so excited to be able to help your child grow and feel confident in their abilities."

We are so lucky to have your kind heart and caring spirit on our team! 💚


Woo, hoo! Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are Pajama Days!

Students in our Prek class explored painting with chopsticks this morning during their morning provocation. It was fun to see the difference in painting with chopsticks compared to painting with a paintbrush. 🎨

What is the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education?

Our unique blended curriculum is based on the Reggio Emilia Approach to early childhood education which is a relational approach that views children as individuals with immeasurable potential. This project based approach to learning encourages students in a classroom community to work collaboratively, helping them build communication skills and encouraging thoughtful cooperation amongst students and teachers.

✨Family Spotlight✨- Meet the Broome Family!

" We are delighted to share our experience at Ivybrook Academy. Our daughter, Leryn, had stayed home with me (her Mom) along with her younger brother, Lincoln, until her curiosity about school blossomed at the age of four. We decided to look for the perfect preschool to meet her needs, which led us to Ivybrook Academy in August. Admittedly, I was apprehensive about Leryn’s transition from home to school, but our experience has been nothing short of wonderful. Leryn’s teachers, Miss Marinda and Miss Lilly, have been exceptional. Their dedication and care extend beyond individual attention to fostering a nurturing environment for the entire class. It’s evident that Leryn is known and valued by the entire staff, which is comforting to us as parents. Her eagerness to return to school even after absences speaks volumes about the positive environment at Ivybrook. Ivybrook Academy has not only eased our initial worries but has also won a special place in our hearts. We wholeheartedly recommend it to other families seeking a loving and nurturing educational setting for their children."
