There are eight core beliefs on which everything in the Green Ivy Schools network centers.
We encourage peer to peer interaction to enhance each child’s unique learning path.
A child’s educational success in large part depends on families, educators, peers and relevant members of the community. Learning is accelerated when students can interact directly with the broader community to understand the relevance of what they are learning. Green Ivy draws families into the learning process since they are the child’s most immediate community.
A feeling of connectedness, resulting in deeper, more memorable learning experiences.
Pillar Three Collaboration
Sharing new experiences and solving problems with others leads to a greater sense of connectedness – as well as deeper and more meaningful learning experiences. Through collaboration, students also learn to acknowledge, respect and advocate each others’ point of view, value one another’s contribution and recognize there is power in interdependency. Collaboration extends not only to students but also to educators, as they work across traditional subjects which have been artificially separated, to encourage learning across disciplines.
Teaching children to consider their impact on others.
There is a global connection in almost everything we do today. We promote an environment that teaches children to consider their impact on others, think globally and contribute to larger solutions. This awareness and respect for other cultures is enhanced by learning new languages, through which children learn how to listen and communicate with others in a meaningful way.
Curiosity leads children to look for what lies beyond the predictable.
Children are natural explorers and instinctively take risks. Their curiosity leads them to look for what lies beyond the predictable. Exploration involves risk and uncertainty, and we strive to create a learning environment where this exploration is encouraged and safe.
Green Ivy embraces best practice and enhances it with a unique delivery.
Several important learning models have been developed, refined and proven by educators around the world. Green Ivy embraces these models and enhances them with our own unique delivery.
The Montessori method is the gold standard for progressive education in early childhood. In later years, the International Baccalaureate represents world-recognized best practices in educational development.
Deeper learning happens through tangible connections and real world experiences with others.
The human connection must be a key component of learning. Shared interests and experiences help children broaden their views and knowledge of the world. A deeper quality of learning, self-discovery and stewardship develops when there is a genuine, personal connection and real world understanding of the experiences of others.
Our teachers create an exploration-based, engaged learning experience.
Inspired, passionate educators are fundamental to our vision. They guide students throughout their daily activities with a clear focus on providing an engaged learning experience. Green Ivy is committed to only hiring those with a passion for helping others learn, whose beliefs and teaching styles fit into our educational philosophy.
