Our hearts are so full knowing she is being poured into each day by a family of teachers/staff who genuinely want our little one to get all she can out of these formative preschool years (making friends, thriving away from mommy and daddy, keeping her safe, helping her learn while showing her all she’s already capable of) It’s been such a blessing to our family!" - -The Whitney Family
  • "We cannot say enough amazing things about this academy. Our daughter started Ivybrook during it's first year and they way it was ran and how organized their processes were, you would have no idea it was their first year open. We found some amazing teachers at Ivybrook. With their love for teaching and children our daughter grew so much in 1 year and left with wonderful memories she continues to talk to us about.

I am forever grateful for this place and look forward to our younger daughters attending in the future." - The Brammer Family
