Private Half-Day Preschool 
In Hendersonville

Engage Their Minds, Watch Them Grow

Early childhood education provides the foundation for a lifetime of learning and, at Ivybrook Academy Hendersonville, we provide children with the resources and tools they need to thrive today, tomorrow, and long into the future. Our Hendersonville Preschool takes an innovative educational approach with our half-day programs and encourages children to think critically, create freely, and enjoy learning. Our multi-sensory, discovery-based approach allows their individual uniqueness to shine and helps set them on the path to being confident, compassionate citizens.

Our Hendersonville private Preschool offers programs for children ages 18 months through 6 years. Each of these programs offers a curriculum that was carefully designed for the age group and focuses on key learning objectives that are critical to growth.

Ivybrook Academy Hendersonville offers the following programs:

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

All of our classes are part-day and we offer both morning and afternoon sessions for specific age groups to accommodate the various needs and schedules of families. To ensure a continuous cycle of learning for our students, we offer our academic Preschool programs during the traditional ten-month school year and theme-based camps during the summer months. Our summer day camps offer various themed adventures and activities for children that are so much fun, they won’t even realize they are learning! Contact us at (615) 682-9068 to learn more about this summer’s program offerings.

Our Curriculum

Ivybrook Academy was founded by a school teacher who recognized the need to acknowledge and encourage children’s natural curiosity. Early childhood education is crucial for healthy cognitive development and, at our Hendersonville Preschool, we provide students with the environment, resources, and encouragement they need to thrive. Our curriculum draws from three approaches:

  • Montessori – This theory recognizes that children have innate preferences and should be given the opportunity to embrace their natural curiosity. Used for more than 100 years in schools, this approach allows children to take the lead in their learning.
  • Reggio Emilia – This student-led approach is similar to the Montessori method and empowers children to learn at their own pace. This collaborative approach’s foundation is peer interaction, celebrating uniqueness, and respecting children’s voices.
  • Theory of Multiple Intelligences – This method emphasizes the importance of adapting the curriculum to the specific needs of each child. Since everyone’s mind works differently, each child will learn, understand, and remember in their own way.

At Ivybrook Academy Hendersonville, we will never take a one-size-fits-all approach to early childhood education. We celebrate individuality and customize our lessons so that every student feels supported and empowered.

Family Testimonials

Enriching Your Child’s Foundation

  • "How can I explain just how wonderful Ivybrook Acadamy is in one paragraph? There truly is no place like it. I heard about Ivybrook from some neighbors who were constantly singing its praises. We took a tour with Priya in January of 2022 with the intention of starting our then 4 year old son, Redmond, the following school year. However, after seeing how much our son loved the school and the kids, we signed him up immediately. What attracted me to Ivybrook was the emphasis the teachers place on nurturing a child's love of learning. It's not about memorizing the ABCs or counting to 100, but rather fostering a lifelong love of learning that enriches a child's life and ignites his or her curiosity. Another bonus for me was Ivybrook's afternoon half-day option. I have a daughter in first grade and having Redmond attend the afternoon half-day option means I get the opportunity to have one-on-one time with both of my kids every day. We feel like we've hit the lottery to have found a place where our son is not only loved and cared for by the incredible teachers, but is also gaining a solid foundation as he starts Kindergarten next year. Ivybrook places such a great emphasis on community and relationship building, which has fostered such nurturing and long-lasting friendships for not only Redmond but for our family as well. Redmond comes home every day talking about what he's made or built with his best buds and goes to bed every night talking about what he can't wait to do tomorrow at school with his friends." - Hannah Gardner
  • "Ivybrook Academy has been such a blessing for our family. We couldn't be happier to be a part of the Ivybrook community. As a parent, you want the absolute best for your child and for someone to love on your child when they are in a setting other than at home. This is the place! They love on our boys so well that I don't feel worried when they aren't with us. We don't have to worry. As an educator, I also see how well they are teaching my boys. They are being pushed academically and absolutely love learning at Ivybrook. When I went to visit this amazing school back in 2021, I was blown away! I honestly wanted to attend myself. I was a little disappointed that there weren't any morning spots available at the time- but that has been the BEST thing for us. We took one of their afternoon availabilities and couldn't be happier. We love the class size and it's great for our family' schedule. My only hope now is they expand and start offering kindergarten. We absolutely love Ivybrook!" - Meghan Foster
  • "Being apart of the Ivybrook Academy family has been such a blessing. After taking a tour and learning about the curriculum we knew this school was a perfect fit for our son Emerson. We enrolled him in summer camp and he quickly started to develop a relationship with the staff members. It was an adjustment for Emerson as he is an only child and used to being at home with us. He really enjoys school and we are excited to see him continue to learn and grow. We are very thankful for Ivybrook Academy and their amazing staff. We highly recommend Ivybrook to everyone we know!" - Amanda Pitt
  • "As we prepared to welcome our second daughter I knew it would benefit Margot to find somewhere she could learn and grow outside of being home with a newborn and her unpredictable schedule, but having always been home with me I was also hesitant about how she would do. From the minute we met with the Ivybrook team we knew we had found our place. Ms. Laura and Ms. Anne made us feel like family and welcomed Margot in a way that eased all of my nerves as a mom, and the rest of the team had been equally amazing. We have seen incredible social and intellectual development over the last 6 months and are so grateful to have found our place at Ivybrook." - Abigail Vaughn
  • "We are the Cox family! Sarah, Kyle, Llewyn (5) and Willa(2). We are originally from Florida but moved to Nashville in 2014 for my job at Nisolo (a sustainable footwear and accessories brand) and for Kyle to continue his music career. Our son attended Ivybrook last year (Pre-K) and we were blown away by the care and intentionality of the teachers and staff. Without hesitation, we enrolled our daughter this year in the Young 2’s class. It is such a gift to know our kids are loved so well and enjoy learning because of the thoughtful research and execution by the whole team." - Sarah Cox
  • "We are the Radican family, Robbie, Ashley and Keegan (4 in January). We moved to Tennessee in 2021 and this is our second year at Ivybrook but I wish we started sooner. We can not say enough amazing things about the school staff, the curriculum and the atmosphere that Ivybrook shows to every family. Keegan has been thriving socially, academically and in his confidence. Keegan comes home excited and ready to tell us about his friends and all the things he is learning. We as parents have also made such amazing friends with other parents in Keegan’s classes which we hope to continue over the years. We consider Ivybrook as part of our family and so glad they are on this journey with us!" - Ashley Radican
  • "We had enrolled Teddy into another local daycare and found that she was not getting what she needed and she was not happy to attend every day. The moment I walked into IvyBrook I knew this is where she needed to be. She has developed and grown both intellectually and socially since she joined and she is SO EXCITED to go to school now. I’m so proud to tell other parents about IvyBrook and all that they have to offer. The whole team has made us feel like we are family and we know we can always rely on them. Ms. Laura and Ms. Anne are fantastic and so are all of the teachers!! We will be keeping Teddy at IvyBrook as long as we possibly can!" - Amber Cruikshank
  • "We're the Perrins! We're transplants from the west coast and our daughter had just become a big sister when we found IvyBrook. We chose IvyBrook because of its play-based approach, beautiful campus, and lovely staff. We also loved that she could go part-time. We wanted her to socialize and learn without having to be gone all day. Our daughter gets nervous around new people so we weren't sure how she would do at school for the first time. But the staff created such a beautiful, safe space for her to get her bearings and settle in after a lot of transition. She's now excited to go see her friends and teachers and has been learning so much. We're so grateful for their personable approach and patience! We've watched her become more comfortable, confident, and vocal and it's meant the world to us!" - Mika Perrin
