Our childcare programs and full day preschool is truly a treasure in our community. Located on a road traveled by many locals on a daily basis, Phoenix Children’s Academy Private Preschool, Thunderbird is an area landmark. With more 145 years of combined experience with preschool and childcare, our caring staff is the best of the best. We take pride in being the top preschool in Peoria.

Our children love cooling down from the hot Arizona sun on our super fun splash pad. We also have a Smart Board room for students to enjoy learning technological-savvy skills at an early age. Also, we serve healthy meals and snacks, which we include in our tuition. Finally, our Kindergarten Club is one of the best around.

Our Programs

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). We maintain the strong bonds, warmth, and security your baby enjoys at home in our infant daycare program.

  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). In this program, our goal is to prepare children for Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). This program weaves in the skills taught in previous years to get your child ready for the transition to Kindergarten.

Our Philosophy

We strongly believe that all children in our school matter. Not only do they matter, but their family matters, too. We rejoice with their successes and provide emotional support for students in their times of trials. Every family is a unique piece of the puzzle at our school; and when one piece is missing, we are not complete.


Phoenix Children’s Academy, Thunderbird received a Quality First Star Rating of “3” stars from the state of Arizona in 2016.

What Makes Us Unique

At Phoenix Children’s Academy, Thunderbird, we believe every child deserves to have the education and love that our school provides. With an amazing preschool curriculum that addresses the whole child, we teach them the obvious elemental basics of letters, numbers, and colors, but also teach them about the world and important values. We teach each child through hands-on learning all day long.

It is extremely important to us that our early childhood education center maintains a high level of family involvement in every child’s growth and development. To that end, we offer fun family activities all year, and we make it our mission to establish personal connections with every child and family.
