Our teaching model:
ivy's house Elementary School is an experimental education school based on Montessori teaching methods. Our work process is at least three hours a day, allowing children to practice choosing and arranging learning content by themselves. Teacher's teaching is through individual and small group learning. Activities arrangements are also the extension and experience through discussions with children or learning contents from children's choices.
In order to let the child adapt smoothly after enrollment, we will organize a trial study period and arrange talks with parents ensuring that parents understand the school's philosophy, and also let the child understand the school's learning mode, work, and rest schedules/patterns.

What is the difference in the way of class in Montessori Elementary School?
In response to the fast-changing world in the future, we hope to cultivate future talents with enthusiasm for learning, the ability to actively seek knowledge, the ability to cooperate with others in the group, and the ability to challenge the learning framework. We take the Montessori teaching method as the main core and believe that it can be fully integrated into the new curriculum of the future.
Every afternoon there are themed clubs, and external professional teachers are hired to lead children to explore different areas of learning.
Friday is an outdoor learning day. There are activities such as mountain climbing, trails, cultural and artistic visits, exhibition visits, and other activities that help lead children to explore the vast world outside the classroom.
Childcare during school breaks: Can the school coordinate to provide childcare during winter and summer vacations?
The winter vacation duration of ivy's house elementary school is the same as other elementary schools, with a total of three weeks;
The summer vacation duration of ivy's house elementary school is only one month in July.
We rearrange the "traditional" summer vacations in August into the middle of the semesters. It is expected to be April Spring Break(one week), Dragon Boat Festival(one week), National Day(one week), and New Year's Day(one week).
During the winter and summer vacations, teachers have to conduct advanced study separately for one week, therefore childcare is not provided.
During the mid-semesters holidays, we encourage parents to arrange parent-child travel, take their children to outdoor activities, and cultivate parent-child relationships. If parents cannot take a holiday due to work, they can discuss it directly with the school.
How does the school provide basic health care, such as the healthcare room?
Dahu Elementary School has a healthcare room that can provide basic medical care. The classroom is also equipped with first aid kits. If students are unwell or injured, teachers will do the first-aid treatment first and then notify the parents. If the child needs to be sent to the doctor, they will also contact the parents immediately. Parents can also leave their home doctor/regular visit clinics' information to the school as a reference, when the child enrolled for the school.
