Half-Day Private Preschool in Summerville

Bright Futures Begin at Ivybrook

At Ivybrook Academy Summerville, we believe that every child deserves to be heard and their uniqueness celebrated. That’s why we take a progressive approach to early childhood education. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, as every child comprehends differently and has unique needs. Our private Summerville preschool offers a multi-sensory, discovery-based environment that champions diversity and builds solid foundations for lifetimes of learning. 

Our half-day preschool welcomes children 18 months through six years and offers the following programs:

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

Our preschool programs run for 10 months of the year. For the two summer months, we offer a theme-based summer camp. Children love our activities, games, and exploration so much that they have no idea they are learning in the process! 

Like our other programs, our summer camp is a half-day program designed to provide a productive learning experience for the child while also allowing them time to spend with their families. Contact our Summerville preschool to learn more about all our programs. 

How We Approach Learning

Ivybrook Academy Summerville creates a supportive and encouraging learning environment that allows children to be themselves and explore the world around them. Our curriculum pulls from three popular progressive educational approaches: Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. These philosophies empower children to take the lead in their education and move at their own speed while also adapting the curriculum to the unique needs of each student. 

Every student is different, and we want to celebrate their strengths while also focusing on areas where they may need additional assistance. Our progressive approach allows us to meet the child where they are. 

Tour Our Campus

The best way to learn more about our Summerville half-day preschool is to schedule a tour of our campus. This will provide you with an opportunity to see our school, meet some of our staff, and ask any questions you may have. We are honored that you would consider our school for your child and we would love to show you why so many parents trust Ivybrook Academy Summerville with their child’s early childhood education.
