Joyful and meaningful play-based learning

At Children’s Cottage of Wilmington teachers build their curriculum on hands-on exploration to foster lifelong critical thinking skills and confidence. Children acquire a love of learning through solid teacher/child interactions, planned age-appropriate schedules, and hands-on activities. We use a child-focused curriculum that supports early learners by creating an environment that encourages them to explore learning materials and interact with adults and peers.

Learning through Play

Preschoolers learn to build academic skills, develop socially and emotionally, and become part of a classroom community. Through play, children learn problem-solving skills, develop independence and initiative, and practice math, science, reading, and writing while having a blast. If you’re interested in experiencing the enriching environment firsthand, we invite you to visit one of our preschool locations.

Half-Day Preschool Progam

Age 3-5

Our half-day preschool program provides an easeful transition for children entering school for the first time. Our hours are from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with all drop offs at 8 a.m. and all pickups are at 2 p.m. This half-day schedule allows for your child to gradually adapt into the fun and playful environment of school and enjoy it even more as they progress through their education. Half-day summer camp is available June – August.

We follow the New Hanover County Schools calendar for inclement weather and holiday breaks.
