The School for Growth… As the only school in Delaware to provide two paths to the first grade for our youngest learners, Ursuline Academy’s Early Childhood Program educates the whole child in a faith-based, co-ed environment with a multi-sensory approach that creates inquisitive, empathetic, and independent learners. Whether you choose our Montessori or Pre-K/Kindergarten program, your child will thrive in our small and personalized classroom settings where innovation and enthusiasm meet to lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

By creating a strong sense of community among all of our Early Childhood students through strong traditions, compassion, and a commitment to service to others, faculty and staff develop learners who come to school excited and ready to learn. Our Early Childhood program will channel your child’s enthusiasm and curiosity with our unique educational opportunities, including our Discovery Classroom and Outdoor Classroom, and special subject offerings, including music, Spanish, Chinese, and computer classes, among others. These approaches, in concert with Ursuline’s founding values and mission, allow our youngest students to emerge from our Early Childhood program as well-rounded learners ready for academic excellence at the next level.
