Ballancrest Academy  Preschool
The finest education begins here.

Ballancrest Academy Preschool  is a private and family-owned preschool started by Julie G. Lease, a teacher with a Masters Degree in Gifted Education and thirty years of experience.  Julie had a vision, a vision where degreed teachers were allowed to teach and be creative and love what they do.  She wanted a place that was smaller where each teacher knew each child.  She wanted a place where children were challenged and exposed to music, languages, technology and culture and above all she wanted a unique and advanced curriculum.  Our curriculum is a science based curriculum that harnesses a child's natural curiosity about the world around them and teaches through a unique, hands-on approach.  As an avid reader and lover of children's literature, Julie had to make literacy and developing a passion for reading an intricate part of the program. Julie also wanted an eco-friendly school and one that served their children fresh foods, whole grains and organic fruits, vegetables, milk and juices. Julie set out to create someplace special and we believe she did just that.  What we say is true, the finest education begins here.
