The world is an exciting place for children, full of wonder and discovery.

Currently, the environments they’re used to are changing, and someday they’ll be able to share what they remember of their COVID-19 pandemic experience. At Valley Child Care & Learning Center, we have continued to provide safe and flexible childcare and preschool programs in Phoenix to support families needing care. As a community, we are navigating something extraordinary together and we find no greater purpose than providing an excellent preschool experience with a team of staff that children are familiar with and trust. 

Engaging, dynamic, STEAM learning experiences for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers!

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Experiences in each of these domains are the building blocks for all future learning and are included in each of our program’s classrooms. You’ll see these experiences documented on our lesson plans and broken down into age-appropriate goals for infant, toddler, and preschool-age children.

In our Phoenix childcare and preschool programs, we encourage each child’s individual sense of worth and belonging. Our goals include providing them with the tools they’ll need to excel in elementary school years and beyond. These skills include, but are not limited to –

  • Social and language skill development,

  • Working cooperatively with peers and adults,

  • Making safe and healthy choices for themselves and others,

  • Manners and character development

An environment where children are free to explore and ask questions about the world around them promotes a lifelong love of learning!

Pictured here, each child was invited to observe a container of flowers and create their own “still art” masterpiece. When creating an art project, children explore materials, mediums, and techniques which lead to their own unique version of a finished product. The goal is not to have every child replicate the teacher’s example but rather to guide them into exploring however is most comfortable and exciting for them!

We’re here for your family.

It all began with a family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 1967, Valley Child Care and Learning Center programs were created by a family who saw that Arizona parents were desperately in need of safe and reliable childcare programs. Now, over fifty years later, we are continuing our mission to provide the highest quality of childcare and preschool programs to children in Arizona, still a locally owned, family-owned, and operated business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We couldn't be more proud of this achievement! Follow the link in our bio to enroll and be a part of our story!
