Meet Our Team

At Ivy League Kids we believe in the importance of creating a safe and caring environment for kids in the out-of-school-hours. We strive to uphold the highest level of integrity as we are trusted on a daily basis with the most invaluable thing known to our world, children. With that comes an incredible high level of responsibility, which we humbly recognize everyday. Our passion is creating a fun and engaging environment for kids and we achieve that through program creativity which we use every single day.
