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 3 popular progressive educational approaches:

  • - Montessori
  • - Reggio Emilia
  • - Gardner's 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.
