The Phoenix Schools Prairie City
in Folsom, California

Welcome to The Phoenix Schools Prairie City in beautiful and historic Folsom, California. Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and named after a former gold-rush era town, our preschool is full of character and charm. We’ve been offering child care and early education since 1998 and many of our teachers and staff have been with us for just about as long. Our mission is to instill a lifetime love of learning in each and every one of our kids!

About The Phoenix Schools Prairie City

Our staff is committed to creating an exceptional, interactive environment, as well as respecting each child as an individual. Our preschool and early child care center has two separate playgrounds for our preschoolers and toddlers. Both playgrounds are large and open, which allows for creative play and exploration. Many outside activities include parachute play, obstacle courses, and water play when weather permits. We are also excited to offer specialty classes at our campus, which include Gymtyme, Jazzerettes, and Kinderdance.

Programs Offered:

We offer an exceptional curriculum, which includes Open Court Reading, Zoo Phonics, Math Their Way, D’Nealian Handwriting, Baby Signs, Computers, Spanish, Art, Social Studies, Literature, Fun with Fitness, and Science. We can guarantee that when children leave our program they will be more than prepared for kindergarten. In fact, over 50% of our graduating 4-year-olds score high enough on assessments to enroll into our K-1 program next door at the Phoenix Elementary School Campus.
