Ballancrest Academy Preschool

Learning Begins At Our Center

When it comes to educating children, Ballancrest Academy at Blakeney proudly exceeds all state and national standards. Using a ScienceStart! curriculum with the incorporation of NC Foundation for Early Learning and Development standards, we have become the leader in advanced preschool education in our local area.

Our facility is strategically nestled away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet still close to everywhere you need to be. We are fully equipped with bright, beautiful classrooms suitable for the many activities geared around our hands-on science curriculum and an outdoor play area specially designed to foster interactive play.
