About Phoenix Children’s Academy

Welcome to Phoenix Children’s Academy Private Preschool, Chandler Heights! We’re proud to offer families in Gilbert quality daycare, preschool, and before & after programs that make children feel safe, supported, and engaged every time they walk through our doors.

We take a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which recognizes that young children need emotional, social, creative, and physical development in addition to cognitive development. Our teachers introduce new skills in diverse subject areas such as Literacy, Technology, Physical Fitness, Creative Expression, and Kind Child each month. Our goal is to create well-rounded students who are confident and ready to succeed in elementary school!

Our Preschool Programs

Kind Child Program

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is an important part of our school’s culture and monthly curriculum. We believe that children learn to be kind and treat others well when they experience these traits firsthand. Our directors and teachers are committed to practicing kindness in their daily interactions with both students and staff and our teachers work on the development of valuable characters traits such as Thankfulness, Respect, a Positive Self-Image, and Empathy each month. The result is a Kind School where everyone feels welcome and valued!

Our Skill-Based Curriculum

Ascend Curriculum LogoWe believe the most impactful way to support the development of academic skill is to give children some control over their learning process. Our Ascend Curriculum helps us offer our preschool students a variety of fun, educational activities and we encourage our students to select which activities they want to participate in. These activities can also be modified to accommodate the interests and current level of skill of each student so they are appropriately challenged and supported. We want your child’s first educational experiences to be fun and engaging so they develop a love of learning that will serve them throughout their lifetime.

I loved the tour I had and the teachers I met were incredibly skilled, helpful, and answered my questions to perfection.  The classrooms are clean and safe for both children and staff.  The teachers care about the kids in their rooms as if they were their own and the children are rarely fussy.  The lessons cover all subjects supremely and in a way that entices the children to learn them well.  The best thing is that the staff treats parents and the children like they are family.   As soon as you enter the building you feel welcomed and as if you have come home.  The kids feel it too and can't wait to be dropped off so they can socialize with their friends in a fun and safe environment where learning also takes place.  The skills they learn here I know they will take with them all their lives.

My kids have been coming here for 3 years now, and they absolutely love it. I am very pleased with the teachers and staff and their hard work. Especially with this pandemic going on, they're taking the proper precaution and action to make sure my kids are safe and protected. I couldn't have picked a better school for my kids. Ms. Lidia is a fantastic teacher, and will always be my daughter's favorite teacher. Thank you again teacher's and staff for all your hard work. You're greatly appreciated!!!

Both of my boys have attended PCA since they were infants and are currently still attending. I could not have asked for more caring teachers. My one year old loves his teacher Ms. Jessica and learns so much in her class. As a parent it is great to see your toddler learning and love getting updates on kid reports to see how their day was. My four year old loves Ms. Jordyn and talks about the different things he learns each day. My boys have been loved and cared for by every teacher they have had throughout the years. I am a very grateful dad.

My children have been attending PCA since 2018 and i can not say anything but wonderful things about this school. Ms. Betsey and Ms Sara are an amazing duo. They are great at making you feel welcomed and heard, which is important as a parent to know that your question and concern needs are being met. In my children's two years of attendance, I have seen minimal staff turnover which is hard to find in a preschool. Both my son and daughter started in their infant program with Ms Maria. Ms Maria is an incredible infant teacher, she is loving, kind, caring and attentive to all your babies needs. Ms Kayleigh is great at Sharing all the special moments of your child's day, which is important as a full-time working mommy. I always knew my children were in the best possible environment being at PCA. All the staff I have encountered is friendly and kind, especially Ms Lidia and Ms Jordyn. My daughter always has a huge smile on her face when she sees them. Ms Lydia greets her every morning and Ms Jordyn walks her out at night. She is always so eager to go with Ms Lidia and hesitant to leave Ms Jordyn at night, which tells me she feels safe and secure at her school. If I could give them 1 million stars as a rating i would.
