The joy and excitement of bringing a new life into this world is beyond compare. Each and every moment with your baby is filled with wonderment—for you and your little one—and, of course, you wouldn’t want to miss a single one. In our infant daycare program you won’t. We keep you continually updated on your baby’s cozy, blissful days in our warm, secure nursery. While you’re busy at work, our professional and nurturing caregivers rock, cuddle, coo, read, and sing the days away with your infant, activities that keep your baby comfortable and happy while also ensuring progress toward crucial developmental milestones. Best of all, you can drop in, snuggle your baby, and see for yourself all that our infant care program has to offer at any time.
1 - 2 yrs.
“Why aren’t there any more dinosaurs?” “Where does the wind come from?” “When is it time for ice cream?” Sound familiar? In just one year, your child has evolved from a cuddly, sleepy baby to a chatty, bouncing toddler. These years are marked by stupendous curiosity; asking questions and receiving answers to them—purposeful conversations—are a cornerstone of early cognitive development. From our interactive classrooms to our exciting activities, we provide ample opportunities for your toddler to explore, discover, and learn. Much of this journey is traveled with newfound friends and marked by personal choices and collaborative decisions because certain days some kids will want to be wizards while others would prefer rocketing to outer space.
2 –3 yrs.
Your little one is entering an intensive period of cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development: 82% percent of brain-cell connections form during this time. Our early childhood learning program is designed to fill your youngster’s world with excitement and wonder while also keeping him or her on track to meet important educational milestones. Who knew laughter-filled days of counting, rhyming, singing, and dancing with buddies could prove so pivotal to success later in school and life? But it does: research shows that kids who’ve attended quality early childhood education programs tend to enjoy lasting improvement throughout their school careers.[i] Come see what our outstanding early learners program is all about!
3 – 4 yrs.
Roaring conversations and laughter, smiling, dancing, and singing—you’d think it’s a party! But it’s just a typical day of preschool at The Phoenix Schools, where kids soar to scholastic excellence through developmentally directed play. Each and every day, we engage three- and four-year-olds in fun, research-based activities that help the billions of cells in their brains make the tens of thousands of connections necessary for healthy cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical growth. Weaving stories and languages of far off lands, explorations into the interworking of the planet, and exercises with numbers into our signature curriculum keeps kids excited about learning while laying the foundation for high achievement well into adulthood. After all, we are shaping the future leaders of society!
4 - 5 yrs.
Kindergarten is just a year away, and your youngster may be feeling a bit anxious about this next big step in his or her educational journey. And that’s perfectly understandable: the kids get bigger and the subjects more complex in kindergarten. That’s why in addition to advancing our four- and five-year-olds’ reading, math, science, and critical thinking skills we also provide them with abundant opportunities to make decisions on their own. Whether selecting a toy or suggesting what fun-with-fitness move the class should do next, these early choices foster confidence in children, ensuring they’re just as socially and emotionally prepared for kindergarten as they are mentally.
5 - 6 yrs.
Your child is growing up so fast! It’s already time for kindergarten! Since research has linked quality kindergarten programs to elevated academic achievement, greater chances of post-secondary educational participation, and even higher wages and rates of marriage, this year has the potential to shape the rest of your child’s life.[i] The Phoenix Schools provides its kindergarteners with all the tools necessary to excel: educated and experienced teachers, small class populations, and developmentally directed activities. Still a playful, imaginative child but at the same time maturing into an independent and articulate adolescent, your little one needs a supportive environment and nurturing guidance during this pivotal period of growth. We work closely with parents to ensure a comfortable, seamless transition for their children into elementary school.
Kindergarten – 12 yrs.
The fun and learning of preschool and elementary school shouldn’t stop when the school bell rings. In our before and after school program, kids catch up with their friends or on homework before they start their school days. We welcome them back in the afternoon for outdoor adventures and activities, allowing them additional opportunities to stretch and take in some fresh air after a long day of learning in the classroom. Since we know parents often have hectic schedules, many of our centers provide transportation to and from local elementary schools—including our own Private K-6. Stop in and see just how exciting your child’s mornings and afternoons can truly be!
Kindergarten – 12 yrs.
School is out for the year, and your child craves action and adventure. Of course you want to make your little one happy, but you also want to ensure those hard-earned reading and math skills don’t wane over the long break. Our summer camp is the perfect solution. Kids stay active, entertained, and learning on field trips that expose them to all the wonders of arts, culture, and nature. When they’re not running, jumping, and playing with their friends, the kids in our summer camp program are traveling back in time or to the distant lands depicted in the books we provide them. You could also drop by and find them manipulating numbers in our fun, yet challenging math sessions. Memories are made and scholastic skills keep in The Phoenix Schools’ summer camp!
