School Director

Jill Blondell
Hello and thank you for your interest in Pax Natura Academy at Childcare Network. We are a premier preschool in Wilmington, NC and strive to bring our families and community together. At Pax Natura Academy we teach our children to be eco-conscious by helping them embark on a love for gardening and getting back to nature through natural play. We teach diversity and empathy in our classrooms and reinforce these ideas about our community. We share with our children and families the need for healthy eating habits by using fresh locally grown produce and physical activity. Our natural playgrounds and gardens are beautiful and full of opportunity for the children to learn.

About Childcare Network in Wilmington

Childcare Network is more than daycare - we are a dedicated team of educators preparing your child for the best start in life. Our school provides the foundation for our children to move from infancy through preschool into pre-kindergarten through a well-balanced curriculum full of developmental activities to stimulate your child. We offer programs for children starting from 6 weeks through 12 years of age.

It is important for us to participate in many community events developing an awareness of community, diversity, and leadership in our children. Our wonderful staff works hard each day to instill an eagerness for learning all of these concepts in each child.

Kindergarten Prep Academy is our structured pre Kindergarten program that prepares 4 and 5 year olds for using “The High Reach Learning” curriculum. This preschool curriculum brings out the wonder in a child’s mind by connecting play, imagination, and learning to their world. This program challenges children to use their senses, ask questions, and find the answers in a supportive, language- and literacy-rich environment. We offer this program year round with a Summer Readiness program that keeps children learning and prepared for Kindergarten. We have many family celebration opportunities and offer yoga classes and dance classes with “Little People’s Creative Workshop,” physical education with “Grow to Health” and music with Mr. Mark.

During our full day Adventure Summer Camp, our children participate in fun learning adventures. Our campers participate in Cooking Club, Art Club, and 4H Club. Campers will also visit the serpentarium, enjoy bowling to encourage positive sportsmanship, visit the fire department to learn about fire safety and visit Fort Fisher to learn about our coastal ecosystems.

Visitors are invited to the school to help educate the children, including Andy from Fort Fisher Aquarium and 5 Star Petting Zoo. Let’s not forget about our onsite water slide. The children and staff love this part of our playground. You can see pictures in our web gallery album of them enjoying the opening of it.
