A note from Tasha & Jim,

the wife-and-husband duo behind Young Ivy.

Raising three children (now adults!) ourselves taught us the detrimental effects of procrastination and the importance of getting things done. We know that some kids embrace school while others don't, and that this has a compounding effect on academic performance. 

No matter their aptitude, we want to help your child do the best they can, by not only instilling a good work ethic, but by having fun along the way as well. 

We're happy you're interested, and can't wait to hear how your child loves it here.
