In 2005, the concept of Ivybrook Academy was developed by 1st grade teacher Jennifer McWilliams as she became disenchanted with the lack of administrative help and bad curriculum that she was forced to teach students every year. She knew there had to be a better way with her college degrees in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education.
After taking 3 years off work to develop the current curriculum and model, Ivybrook Academy opened its doors in August 2007 at the Weddington Campus will nearly full enrollment on the first day of school. The Weddington campus has grown in size and capacity but has always maintained its status of being the #1 Half Day Pre-School in the Charlotte area. After seeing the overwhelming need and success of the first school, husband Drew McWilliams left his successful business career to solely focus on growing the company.
This led to plan and develop the opening of our second campus in Fort Mill, SC in August of 2011 which is now the prototype for future franchise school owners. The Fort Mill campus has an equally exciting success story of being nearly at full capacity and growing in size since opening. We encourage you to learn more and it will be clear to see what makes Ivybrook such a special place teach, work & own and we hope that your client will become the next success story.
