Private Half-Day Preschool in Cary

Where Voices Are Valued & Compassion Is Cultivated

Taking a progressive approach to early childhood education, Ivybrook Academy Cary is a PreSchool that values students’ individual voices and celebrates their uniqueness. Our multi-sensory, discovery-based approach offers children the opportunity to research and reflect on the world around them.

A strong foundation is critical to a lifetime of learning, and our Cary PreSchool provides students with the tools, motivation, and encouragement they need to thrive today, tomorrow, and long into their future. It is our philosophy that children’s voices should be heard and their ideas should be honored to better motivate them to participate in their learning. We put their interests front and center and encourage them to explore the world around them, ask questions, solve problems, and share their findings.

Ivybrook Academy Cary offers the following programs:

  • Toddler Preschool
  • Preschool for 2-Year-Olds
  • Preschool for 3-Year-Olds
  • Preschool for 4 & 5-Year-Olds
  • Private Kindergarten

All of our programs offer half-day schedules, and we offer both morning and afternoon sessions for some of our programs to help accommodate the busy schedules of our families. The future holds so many possibilities, and we are dedicated to providing children with the tools and resources needed to thrive. Schedule a private tour of our Cary PreSchool today!

Our Approach

The Ivybrook team believes that a hybrid curriculum that incorporates a variety of educational approaches is the best way for children to receive the best early childhood education. That’s why our curriculum draws from three approaches: Reggio Emilia, Montessori, and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. These techniques are woven into all of our half-day programs and provide children with a progressive, well-rounded experience.

Summers Are for Learning

Ivybrook Academy Cary is happy to offer progressive learning experiences year-round! Our academic PreSchool programs are offered for 10 months during the year and, during the summer months, we offer our part-day camps. Our summer program for children ages two through six consists of exciting themes, activities, and opportunities for exploration. Though this program is educational, kids have so much fun, they have no idea that they are learning in the process! Contact our Cary PreSchool to learn about our current summer program offerings.
