- Our Team
Phoenix Children’s Academy Private Preschool, Lindsay offers daycare services, preschool programs, and before & after care for ages 6 weeks through 12 years old. Our welcoming preschool center in Gilbert features 10 custom-designed classrooms where children have fun learning in a cozy, homelike atmosphere.
We take advantage of the wonderful Arizona weather with lots of scheduled outdoor activities on our large playground, which features a splash pad to keep the kids cool all summer long. When it’s too hot outside, we have an amazing indoor playground and gross motor room that keeps the children busy and engaged. Our preschoolers also love playing educational games on our school’s Smart Board.

Our preschool teachers work from our Ascend Curriculum, which takes a skill-based approach to early child education. This proprietary curriculum recognizes that young children need much more than cognitive development and provides a flexible framework that helps our students reach important social, emotional, creative, and physical milestones.
Our teachers introduce new skills every month, which allows students to progressively build valuable skill sets in subjects such as Physical Fitness, Creative Expression, Literacy, Mathematics, and Cultural Understanding.
Kind Child is one of the most popular subjects in our Ascend Curriculum. Kind Child helps children build social skills and take on character traits such as Responsibility, Thankfulness, Friendship, and a Positive Self-Image. We have found that when we focus on the emotional well-being of each child in our care, we strengthen our school too.
Maintaining a strong partnership with our families is an important part of a successful preschool experience. We keep our families informed about their child’s day and academic progress through a variety of communication pieces. Our students are constantly working towards important milestones, which are documented in Developmental Portfolios and track a child’s developmental journey from Infants all the way through Pre-Kindergarten.
I graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelors of Education in Family and Human Services and have worked with Children and Families for over 20 years. I have experience as a Teacher, in School Management, in Child Welfare as a Caseworker and Foster Parent Certifier and as a Parent Educator. I am also a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician.
Working with and educating children and families is my passion and what I do for fun. I enjoy listening to music, traveling and watching children learn and grow into happy, healthy and confident people. I am happy and excited to be here and look forward to meeting you and your family!
