Preschool

What better way to describe our preschoolers than persistent and we love it! Problem solving skills have really taken off at this age and despite finding a task difficult, 3 year olds will think more creatively and spend time completing tasks. In addition to their persistence, they are also becoming logical thinkers and can understand the differences in groups of objects. This is the perfect time for children to use the Ivy Prep Masters curriculum; this will ensure they have a strong foundation as they begin to ready themselves for Kindergarden.
