International Ivy creates classes based on what would love to learn like app creation, graphic design, robotics, performing arts, weird science and so much more. Classes are designed to be hands-on where kids learn by doing. There are plenty of choices across so many disciplines so kids can explore all that they are interested in. All of the sessions are weekly so parents can sign up for one or more weeks. Parents can also choose full day or half day options.

Rutgers Prep International Teacher Institute

Philosophy , Design, Structure, and Curriculum Overview

During the course of the five day program, we will discuss our overall philosophy on how young children learn best. This philosophy is based on our 250+ years of educating young children, research through attending accredited trainings, and working with a variety of educational experts in the field. We will explain how we use our philosophy to set up classrooms, provide structure within the classroom.

Our program allows for learning opportunities, independence, and emotional growth. We will spend time learning about the RPS Kindergarten program and how it may be implemented elsewhere. Participants will receive electronic files that can be used in their own classrooms.

Thematic Based Approach

Join us as we go through 10 months of thematic based programming in just 5 days! We will spend the week demonstrating our hands on approach to thematic based learning and how to use it to encompass literacy, math, and science. Participants will be provided with our themes, and the opportunity to create their own themes and projects supporting the above mentioned areas of curriculum. A thematic based approach allows teachers to explore a variety of topics while that engage students while teaching core curricular areas.
