Program Overview

Isle of Wight Academy Preschool and Child Care Center is a non-profit corporation operated by Isle of Wight Academy. We offer a preschool program for 2-and-a-half, 3, and 4 year olds as well as before and after school care for 2-and-a-half to 12 years old, provided the school can meet their needs. We are open to any race, sex, color, creed, or political belief.

Our main goal is to provide a safe, secure environment for your child while you pursue your own work or other interests. We provide age appropriate opportunities for development of skills and learning experiences. We lay the groundwork for future reading skills and other academic pursuits.

If you have any questions concerning our program, please feel free to contact the Academy via telephone (357-5193) or by visiting the campus. Thank you for your interest in IWA!!!
