We understand that this stage in a child’s life is important for developing independence and learning more about everything! In fact, it’s a moment in life in which you may realize that your child is not a baby anymore, but developing into their own person. This is why we use this program to include instructor guidance of various developmental aspects that children this age can benefit from. For example, communication exercises, conflict resolution, and encouraging peer play and relationship development.

The Curriculum for the Juniors Program at Ivy Prep Staten Island

Here at Ivy Prep, we believe that children of every age are constantly growing and developing new knowledge. And, that’s why it’s so important to include educational aspects into daily care (before the traditional start in kindergarten). So, instead of just a daycare facility, we are an early learning opportunity for your child. As such, we have developed and utilize specific curriculums for each program. And, for each age group of students enrolled at our Staten Island location. This Juniors Program curriculum utilizes a number of educational methods and materials. And, it aims to track your child’s growth and development in a few different areas including:
