Welcome to Everbrook Academy in Wayne, NJ. My name is Jennifer Ricra and I am the school principal. Along with our school education manager, Jen Grinberg we have over 40 years of experience in early childhood education in both teaching and administration. We are so excited to be a part of the Everbrook Academy family!
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. We offer Infant and Toddler care, Preschool and Pre-K, and School-Age. 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!
Safety is a top priority here at Everbrook! We follow stringent cleaning and sanitation procedures. We keep updated on all health alerts and perform wellness checks each day with the students.
We can't wait to meet your family! Please give us a call to schedule a tour today!
