Blue Ivey School is by far an A+ school. Enrollment starts at 18 mos and goes to 12 yrs I believe. They have the best and sweetest teachers any parent could ask for. The prices are a little high (in fact, they're higher than everyone but PrimRose) but it is WELL worth it! At 18 mos, children learn basic sign language (please, thank you, dog, cat, yes, no, etc) to help them communicate. This really helps when a child doesn't have good language skills, most of the time using sign language helps avoid temper tantrums because the lack of communication is wiped out. They are also potty trained and taught the alphabet, shapes, colors, and to use their words. At 2, sign language is still being taught, but using their words is expected. Basic table manners are taught at the lunch table and curriculum is very hands on as well as entertaining and informational. At 3 yrs. children are taught to recognize, spell, and write their name. They learn what sounds go with which letters, the beginnings to math, science and reading. At 4yrs, they are learning new curriculum and drawing their interpretation of the mornings lesson as well as writing it out. The children sound out each letter and write how they believe it sounds. It may not always be right, but it teaches them to reiterate alphabetic sounds and inforce it as well. All the while, still learning science, reading, and math. At 5 yrs, Blue Ivey offers private Kindergarden as well as having after school childcare. Spelling, writing, and reading, will be no problem to your child after a year in Kindergarden at Blue Ivey School! Music class, physical education, swimming lessons, dance classes and computer classes are also offered in addition to the wonderful education your child will recieve at Blue Ivey School! From my experience, there's not a better school out there that truely cares about your child and the learning potential he/she may have.
