About Phoenix Children’s Academy Private Preschool, Chandler Dobson

Welcome to Phoenix Children’s Academy in the neighborhood of Pecos Ranch, located in Chandler, Arizona! Our early childhood education center offers an academically focused, structured learning environment that inspires children to be explorative, inquisitive, and curious about the world around them.

We are part of the Arizona Quality First program showing our dedication to quality education and our commitment to going above and beyond regulatory requirements to help children thrive in elementary school and beyond.

At Phoenix Children’s Academy, we set children up for a bright future with unlimited possibilities, so they can lead an adventurous and fun life. We spark creativity and curiosity by giving children unique opportunities to express themselves and their interests. We build confidence and independence through individualized instruction. We teach patience and empathy through our Kind Child Culture. And, our skills-based curriculum is PROVEN to prepare children for Kindergarten and beyond.

Our beautiful, state-of-the-art preschool campus is secure and clean, featuring security-coded entrances and surveillance cameras in every classroom and on every playground. We also have two playgrounds, a basketball court, and a gated splash pad, as well as two infant rooms: one for non-mobile infants and one for infants on the move. And, coming soon, we will be offering Mandarin  classes and a state-of-the-art STEM lab!

Today, more than ever, keeping children in consistent groups throughout the day is very important. By avoiding classroom rotations, we give children the consistency necessary to thrive. And, our experienced, caring teachers are First Aid- and CPR-certified, and we conduct regular background checks to ensure your children are learning in a safe and secure environment.

I have been in early education for over 10 years and have loved every minute of it. I love spending time with my family watching movies and snuggling them. They truly are the reason for my continued growth. I love doing what I do and making a difference in the lives of people who make a difference in mine.

I brought my 4 year old step-daughter here for a week while family was out of town who usually babysits her and she had a wonderful experience. She absolutely loved her teacher, Miss Glenda, and could not wait to go back. The process to enroll her was smooth and easy and she had never been to any kind of day care or preschool prior, so this experience really helped her get excited for kindergarten!

Our family absolutely LOVES this school! Our son has attended since he was a baby and will be entering kindergarten this year. The staff at PCA is so kind, compassionate, and driven to focus on the children at their school. PCA has definitely helped our son with social skills, academics, and play in order to get him ready for kindergarten. We cannot say enough about PCA and their amazing director, Angel. My only complaint is that we have to leave :)
