Private Half-Day Preschool in Wilmington

Every Child Needs Room to Grow

Welcome to Ivybrook Academy Wilmington, where voices are valued and individuality is celebrated. Our Wilmington PreSchool takes a progressive approach to early childhood education that engages children’s minds and helps them discover the world around them. Our half-day programs are for children ages 18 months through 6 years and will lay the groundwork for a lifetime of learning. With learning plans catered to your child’s needs, we let their uniqueness shine while helping them find their voice and become a compassionate citizen. Your child is unique, so their learning experience should be too.

Our Programs

Our Wilmington private PreSchool believes that half days are the perfect fit for children, as they offer enough time for a comprehensive learning experience yet are short enough to minimize any time spent away from family. Our programs include the following:

  • Toddler Preschool– This program will encourage our youngest students to express themselves through singing, dancing, reading, and art. Experienced educators will also focus on independence and autonomy.
  • Preschool for 2-Year-Olds– In this classroom, students will discover their uniqueness and embrace their passions. We break this program into older and younger age groups and support social and intellectual development.
  • Preschool for 3-Year-Olds– In this program, children will have the opportunity to explore the world around them in depth through hands-on experiences. Students will also learn practical life skills, including wiping, sorting, and pouring.
  • Preschool for 4 & 5-Year-Olds – Children’s foundational skills will be assessed in this program and educators will use this data to create customized learning plans and outcomes for each student. Students will also be exposed to concentrated learning experiences and will learn about problem-solving, socialization, and more.
  • Private Kindergarten– Students will be encouraged to collaborate through small group work and will be exposed to the fundamentals of reading, writing, math, and more.
  • Preschool Summer Camp– At Ivybrook Academy Wilmington, the learning never stops! We are excited to offer students a fun and educational summer program that includes themed activities and adventures. Contact us to learn more about this season’s themes.

Our Wilmington PreSchool’s curriculum draws from three educational approaches: Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. This hybrid approach allows us to customize learning experiences to the needs of each child.

There’s So Much for Them to Discover

At Ivybrook Academy Wilmington, children’s voices are valued and their interests are supported. We understand that it’s not easy deciding on a PreSchool for your child, and we are not the only PreSchool in Wilmington. But we believe that bright futures begin with the right tools, resources, and encouragement, and we offer all of these and so much more. We cultivate compassion, spark imaginations, and help children thrive.

We invite you to take a private tour of our campus to learn more about who we are, meet some of our staff, and ask any questions you may have. Schedule your tour today and take the first step towards helping your child discover and thrive in the world around them.
