Welcome to IVY

We thank all of you!
We first started at IVY school when mydaughter was 22 months old. It’s been almost a year since she entered theschool. At that time, “apple” was the only word she could say in English. Sinceshe started, her vocaburary has been increasing more and more. It’s amazing!IVY school is not just a place to study English language, for her it is theperfect community space that she needs to use English. That’s why she canswitch from Japanese to English naturally when she arrives at school. I wasreally anxious before because it was my first experience to spend any length oftime apart from my daughter.
However, I am so satisfied that we decided to come toIVY school. She is smiling everyday!
最近一番おどろいたのは、お店で会った外国人の親子と一緒に”ABC Song”を歌い、「This One??」「Red, Yellow, Blue…」と英語で話していたことです。これにはすごく驚き、IVYに通わせて良かったなぁと実感しました。
I have always enjoyed going there since I was 2 years and 7 months old.
The teachers are all cheerful and fun, “They are my friends.” He loves it. He is always looking forward to the new words and phrases he is going to learn. I always look forward to it. The best thing is that her pronunciation is really good!
Recently, I was most surprised when I sang the “ABC Song” with a foreign parent and child I met in a shop and they asked me, “This One? Red, Yellow, Blue…” I was very surprised by this. This was a great surprise and made me realise how lucky I was to have them attend IVY.
My son has been attending IVY since he was one and a half years old.
At first, of course, I was worried about putting him in an English-only environment out of the blue, but now I am simply amazed at how quickly he adapts to the English he has learnt and speaks it naturally and with a very beautiful pronunciation. The teachers are really patient and loving with my son through songs, crafts and storytelling. So my son loves the teachers. I feel safe leaving my son there because I think this is the most important thing for a child’s learning environment.
I really like the curriculum they have in IVY. Everything balances each child’s mental, physical, and emotional aspects through their activities. My child has been with IVY for almost 2 years and I noticed great progress in her communication skills. IVY feels like a second home to my child. She’s very comfortable with the environment and always eager to go to school every day. She enjoys English with her sweet teachers and friends!
At IVY, the teachers take a close look at each child and think about how they can help them. Micah wasn’t good at speaking when she first entered the school, but now she can communicate well with other children. In addition, the teachers have extended Micah’s innate positivity. I think this is also thanks to IVY.
My daughter has been enjoying going to school since she was 3years and 8months old.
Ivy International Kids School is a very warm and educational school. All teachers are very kind and they are active in the children’s education.
All students are adorable and friendly. Everyone treats each other as a friend. They are on very good terms with each other.
My daughter’s English skills are improving day by day. She could read a lot of words and watch English TV programs. I am surprised that she can converse with foreigners online. She gained her confidence while learning English.
And I think her sense of independence has been fostering after going to IVY. Teachers teach not only English but also necessities on daily life.
We appreciate all teachers and we are happy to meet teachers and friends. We love IVY International Kids School!!
