Welcome to Everbrook Academy in Apex, NC! My name is Shannon and I am the principal. I have a bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Meredith College and more than 24 years of experience.
We are a 21st century preschool where our STEAM curriculum brings the world into every classroom. Here, your child will discover integrated, hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math.
We offer Infant and Toddler Care, Preschool, Pre-K and Junior Kindergarten programs. Every teacher in every classroom uses the same set of developmental milestones to observe and assess each child’s learning and growth. Through our unique Cycle of Intentional Planning, teachers use these assessments—as well as knowledge of the children’s interests—to customize weekly lesson plans. This way, learning goals are personalized for every child!
We also broaden each child's learning through Curiosity Cadets. This program features four enrichment experiences throughout the year. In addition, we offer several elective programs to introduce children to a variety of experiences (Spanish, yoga, and more) beyond the daily classroom curriculum.
In The Brook, our all-ages community activity room, you’ll find an interactive virtual playground, books and cozy reading nooks, and STEAM zones for robotics, coding, and more. Step outside, and discover some outdoor fun with our playground and age-appropriate playscapes. STEAM-inspired play systems and components help children to develop their skills and abilities while having fun.
Safety is our number one priority at Everbrook Academy. Daily health checks are done for each child upon arrival and throughout the day. Face mask are worn by staff all day and are a requirement for entering the building. Cleaning and sanitizing are part of our daily routine. We are here for your family.
We can’t wait for you to see our amazing school firsthand. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.

I have been in the child care field for over 20 years and what I love the most about my job are the families. It makes me smile to see the children so excited to come to school and learn every day. At Everbrook Academy in Apex, we are a family and I would love to have your family join ours.

"Be as a friendly tree that the children will want to sit near. Enjoy them. If we could forget about ourselves a little more, then the children will be free to be themselves. It is them we should try to know." - Native American Proverb This proverb captures the heart of my teaching endeavors. I served as a public classroom teacher on the sovereignty of a Native American Nation school N.Y. for over 35 years. I seek to instill the message of this quote into the hearts of our teachers.
