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!

We love this school! My kids have been attending at this center since October and they love coming here. I love how the staff is so warm and welcoming,  and always so happy to see me and my kids. If I ever have any questions or concerns I love how Traci and Moira are able to address it right away. It's such a big relief being at work knowing that my kids are in great hands! I would definitely recommend this center to anyone looking for great nurturing care!

I love this preschool! i just moved from Alabama and was struggling to find a safe place for my kids to attend while i was at work. when i found this place i was greeted by one the nicest teacher i’ve ever met, she then directed me to the manager of the building and she was also so sweet! i thought of going to other school but none of them matched this one. i definitely am considering i rolling my kids!

Phoenix Children's Academy is Amazing. The staff is wonderful and I can't think of a single thing they could do better. This is a perfect example of how a business should be run. Thank you for providing such good child care to my daughter!
