Expanding Possibilities & Changing Futures
Brighter futures begin at Ivybrook Academy of Bridgeville, where we take a progressive approach to early childhood education. We believe that with the right resources and encouragement, children can find their voice, embrace their individuality, and become compassionate citizens.
An ideal early learning environment consists of opportunities for children to explore, create, solve problems, and work collaboratively with others. This deepens their understanding of the world through meaningful social interaction and frequent reflection with their peers and adults. Our Bridgeville half-day PreSchool provides an emergent curriculum with topics of study and experiences designed to reflect and support the children’s unique interests and needs.
Our Approach to Early Childhood Education
Ivybrook Academy of Bridgeville honors and values children’s voices and celebrates their uniqueness. We do so by creating and implementing learning plans that are developed based on observations of the child. The world around them provides ample opportunity for exploration, so we use the physical environment to stimulate and engage them.
We offer the following curriculum:
- Toddler Preschool
- Preschool for 2-year-olds
- Preschool for 3-year-olds
- Preschool for 4-year-olds
- Transitional Kindergarten program
- Preschool Enrichment program
Our Bridgeville PreSchool also offers Summer Camp, a summer program with fun themes that are designed to help children learn while also having fun. Contact our campus to learn more about this program and the rest of our curriculum.
Collaboration Fosters Compassion
Our Bridgeville PreSchool was founded by teachers who recognized the absence of multidimensional learning opportunities for their students. Our curriculum combines a progressive approach with time-tested and proven applications. The Montessori method and Reggio Emilia approach help foster creativity and inspire critical thinking, while our Discovery Program provides time for creative expression, library studies, and music and movement. Ivybrook also fosters a collaborative learning environment that consists of small group work that encourages children to work together on shared tasks.
Engage Their Minds, Watch Them Grow
At Ivybrook, we believe in forging strong partnerships between families and educators. Half-days allow us to maximize children’s hours in school with impactful learning experiences while maintaining a developmentally appropriate amount of time away from family. If you desire consistency and stability for your child to better prepare them for their school years, Ivybrook Academy of Bridgeville will give them the tools they need to thrive. We offer tours of our Bridgeville campus, so schedule yours today and cultivate a better future for your child.
