Preschool For 4 & 5-Year-Olds in Raleigh, NC

A Nurturing and Safe Environment for Your Child’s Growth

At Ivybrook Academy North Raleigh, our preschool program has been thoughtfully crafted to provide 4 and 5-year-olds with the skills they need to thrive academically and emotionally. Through hands-on activities, we facilitate students' development of problem-solving, creativity, and socialization.

Our class sizes are kept small to ensure that each child receives personalized attention. This allows teachers to gain insight into each student's strengths, and understand areas where they need additional support. It also promotes a close-knit community where children can form meaningful friendships. Our teachers foster a love for learning, curiosity, and independence in each child. They are also mentors for the students who guide them on their educational journey. 

Through building effective communication skills and by challenging and questioning each other’s theories, children engage in a deep process of reflection in our preschool. They are immersed in a classroom environment full of opportunities for daily exploration and investigation, which sets them up with important skills needed to excel in Kindergarten!

Our 4-5-year-old Preschool Curriculum

Ivybrook Academy’s preschool curriculum is designed to support the holistic development of 4-5-year-olds. It includes a range of age-appropriate activities that promote cognitive, physical, social, and emotional growth. Some key components of our curriculum include:

  • Language and literacy development: Immersive storytelling, interactive reading sessions, and engaging writing activities help children build a strong foundation for communication and literacy skills necessary for future academic success.
  • Mathematics and logical thinking: Children explore mathematical concepts through hands-on activities, games, and puzzles that encourage critical thinking and problem-solving skills. 
  • Science exploration: With hands-on experiments, observation, and exploration of the natural world, students cultivate a sense of wonder and curiosity about science, leading them to ask questions, make predictions, and draw conclusions.
  • Art and creativity: Creativity is celebrated and nurtured through artistic mediums such as painting and sculpting. Children are encouraged to express themselves freely, fostering imagination and self-expression.
  • Music and movement: We create activities to promote physical coordination, rhythm, and self-expression. Through singing, dancing, and playing musical instruments, children develop an appreciation for music while strengthening their gross motor skills.
  • Physical development and outdoor play: The design of our outdoor play areas encourages exploration, imagination, and active play in a safe and stimulating environment.
  • Social skills and teamwork: With collaborative activities and peer interactions, children grow to understand the value of teamwork and collaboration, which lays the foundation for positive social relationships and interpersonal skills.

Our teachers use a combination of structured lessons, hands-on activities, and play-based learning to make the preschool experience engaging and enjoyable for each child. Our curriculum is designed to be flexible, allowing teachers to adapt it to each child's unique learning style and pace.
