Thank you for your interest in our Academy!

Wallburg Academy is a family owned innovative preschool serving children six weeks through twelve years of age. Chelsey Cosper, co-owner and director, has an associates degree in early childhood education and a bachelors degree in child and adolescent development, along with 10 yrs. of experience working with children.  She is so excited to pursue her lifelong dream and to bring her passion for children into the Wallburg community!


We will be using The Creative Curriculum to provide the foundation for academic learning at Wallburg Academy.  This age-appropriate curriculum encourages children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas.  It teaches children HOW to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives.

At Wallburg Academy, we believe teacher-child interaction is a key component to the development of each child.  To make this a priority, we will follow the voluntary enhanced ratios throughout the center, along with enhanced space for each child.  This will provide each child with the potential to reach their highest level of optimal development possible.

At Wallburg Academy, we share a common desire with parents, which is to provide the absolute best for the children.  Our high-quality teachers, creative and fun educational programs, jubilant age appropriate playgrounds and of course, our state-of-the-art facility make us stand high above our competitors.

Our Philosophy

We believe that children experience the greatest growth when they feel secure and wanted.  Therefore, we will provide a safe, nurturing and trusting environment for our children.  Together, we will establish routines that are predictable and consistent.  All children will be treated with gentleness and respect.

We are committed to EMPOWERING YOUNG MINDS and believe that educators are important role models.  Therefore, we use modeling as a vital tool in our classrooms.  We use constructive guidance and positive reinforcement.  Children are encouraged to take ownership in shaping their classroom dynamics through openly sharing their work, ideas and personalities.

Watch Me Grow

Wallburg Academy offers parents to see real-time streaming video of their child learning and playing while in care from their computers, phones or tablets.  Parents can be confident knowing that their child’s safety, well-being and education are the top priority at the center.  They can rest assured knowing that they’ve placed their children in the best place

Wallburg Academy advocates open communication they ultimately play the most vital role in their child’s development.  We believe parents should be encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education.  Working together, we can EMPOWER YOUNG MINDS!

Our Mission

Our Mission at Wallburg Academy is to provide each child we serve with a consistent sense of belonging in a safe and trusting environment.  We will strive to educate children through play and EMPOWER each child to be independent thinkers and life-long learners.
