The caring staff at Phoenix Children’s Academy Private Preschool, Thunderbird has more than 145 years of combined experience in daycares and preschools. We recognize that young children need much more than intellectual development during their first years of life and we offer families in the West Valley a well-rounded preschool experience that also focuses on social, emotional, physical, and creative development.

Ascend Curriculum Logo Our Ascend Curriculum and dedicated teachers work hand-in-hand to create engaging educational experiences in nine different subjects every month. Our preschool programs are offered in six month ranges so students can be with peers who are at a similar level of development and we help children reach important milestones at every age.

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is an important part of our monthly curriculum and the foundation of our school’s culture. The goal of Kind Child is to improve the emotional well-being of each child in our care through the development of valuable character traits such as Empathy, Responsibility, Respect, and a Positive Self-Image. Our teachers focus on developing social-emotional skills each month and a different character trait every two months. The result is a preschool environment where every child feels welcome and valued.

School-to-Home Connection

We have found that children thrive in a preschool setting when there is a strong partnership between school and home. We have an open door policy at Phoenix Children’s Academy and we welcome families to visit at any time. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep you informed about your child’s day and academic progress. We give our parents Developmental Portfolios which document their development from Infants all the way through Pre-Kindergarten. We have fun family activities throughout the year and we make it our mission to establish a personal connection with every child and family.

Our daughter was enrolled here for nearly two years. I have seen her grow so much here and it's quite hard to leave. She entered as a shy, quiet kid and it was apparent when my wife or I dropped her off that she was not a fan of being away from mom and dad. As time went on, she opened up more and more and despite her trouble speaking she really came into her own. She would hug her classmates and/or teachers every time she got picked up, and even on her last day when we told her she would not come back she simply replied "I really liked this school." My wife and I were extremely pleased with her teachers and the staff there. One memory sticks out more than the rest. A parent's worst nightmare: our daughter fell on the playground and busted open her chin. The director, Ashley, administered a butterfly bandage (this is what the nurse at the ER called it) and helped prevent further pain and scarring. When we went to pick up my daughter and take her to the ER, she was calm and quiet, playing with the adults in the front office, in spite of her injury. The staff here really cares about the well-being of your child, and do their best to support them however they can. We are forever grateful that we found this place and had our daughter attend here. Thank you Phoenix Children's Academy!
