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 innovative 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 innovative approach allows us to meet the child where they are.

Family Testimonials

Enriching Your Child’s Foundation

  • "We absolutely love the teachers and staff at Ivybrook Academy Summerville! We have a 3 & 4 yr old currently attending, and when we say that our children beg to go to school, we are not joking. Additionally, both of our children attended last year and grew so much socially, emotionally and academically. The way each person at that school loves our children and wants them to be successful is obvious! They have worked with us to ensure success for both children (academically and behaviorally) and for that we are so grateful. Could not recommend this preschool more." - The Slate Family
  • "Ms. Caroline (the Principal) and the teachers of IvyBrook Academy have been absolutely wonderful. We started attending the young 2’s class, and my child had a hard time adjusting but Ms Caroline, his teachers (Ms. Ali & Ms. Emily), and the other staff members were absolutely wonderful in helping him adjust. We came up with a plan and slowly eased him into the program. After a few short weeks, he was running to his teachers giving big hugs and would tell me how much he loved school. He did so well in this program and we are grateful for the new concepts, the many lessons, and the hands on training that has been received. As parents, we love that we can have open communication with the teachers and staff and we feel heard. We love our Ivy Brook family, and we are very grateful that we can be part of this wonderful school." - Kierra Tucker
  • "We love everything about Ivybrook-Summerville! The team greets the kids at the door with a smile everyday and go above and beyond to keep us in the loop of their progress throughout the year. We attended their first year being open and are so happy with found them! Our Pre-k and toddler both learned so much and we all (mom included) have made some life long friends! It’s such a special school and has been amazing to watch the kids curiosity grow into learning and excitement to tell us about it daily." - Katie Murray
