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 Programs

Ascend Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur 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

Kind Child Program LogoKind 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.

School-to-Home Connection

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 Miami University of Ohio with a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education in 2006. I started my career with Phoenix Children’s Academy in 2011 as a Lead Preschool Teacher, where I spent seven years in the classroom before becoming an Assistant Director in 2018.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling when possible and watching my sweet Lily learn and grow! I love being a part of the PCA family and look forward to continuing my career in the years to come!

My husband and I cannot say in words how much we love and appreciate PCA and the staff here. Its so important to find a place with people who are going to love and care for your child as much as you do, when you have to send them to daycare/pre-school. PCA is that place. My daughter loves the staff and looks forward to her school breaks when she is able to come back and see everyone. The facility is clean, safe, and welcoming, but its the people here who truley make the biggest difference.

Our son has been adapting and socializing so much more since we started bringing him to the academy. He’s learning more and more every with new activities. The updates and pictures through kidreports are great to see how he’s doing and what he’s eating through the day. So far, our family has been quite happy with this choice.

I wish we could have found PCA sooner for our little one! Over the past 2 1/2 years we've enjoyed watching our daughter thrive at PCA. Every single staff member and teacher are wonderful - they always have a friendly smile on their faces and every single teacher in the school know our daughters name. I can't say enough positive things about this place...we love the curriculum, the daily activities they have planned, how clean & sanitary the building is, that they do Water Day in the summer, help teach basics and prep our little one for Kindergarten (they even have the most adorable Pre-K Graduation ceremony complete with caps and gowns!!), send updates throughout the day in a really cool app, and genuinely just care about what's best for early development. Now that we have a Kindergartener, we'll only be able to go to PCA on school breaks but not only are we looking forward to that, so is our daughter. We love PCA and highly recommend the Lindsey Rd. location.
