Classes and Programs

Preschool and Kindergarten classes for children ages 2-6.

At God’s Garden, we believe it is important for children to learn democratic life skills including respecting others and one self, working together in groups, solving problems using words, expressing strong emotions in acceptable ways, and making ethical and intelligent decisions through our preschool programs in Phoenix, AZ.

We emphasize development of Christian values such as self-esteem, hope, faith, caring and sharing, forgiveness, honesty, obedience, responsibility, thankfulness, patience, love, joy, and fairness.  Teachers and staff model these values and beliefs every day in their interactions with children, parents, and each other.

Bible stories and teachings are used to support these values and beliefs.  In addition, children at God’s Garden learn to pray and worship God.  Each day begins and ends with prayer.  And even the littlest ones get to participate in worship during bi-monthly Chapel led by the Director of the Preschool and Pastor of Horizon Church.

Our Amazing Staff

Professional team that aims to respect your child’s feelings, to give them responsibility, independence, and freedom to make choices.

Our staff members are carefully selected based on educational qualifications and experience in the field of early childhood education.  Equally as important is a loving and genuine interest in young children.  Continual staff development is mandatory and accomplished through university/college course work, workshops, conferences, and in-service training.

Transportation Day

Since 2000, Transportation Day has been an annual event that draws 3,000 children and their families to explore vehicles of all sizes, shapes, and types. Want to climb in a helicopter, fire truck, police car, or city bus? How about motorcycles, motor homes, or race cars? You can experience all forms of transportation in early February on the Horizon Presbyterian Church and God’s Garden Preschool campus.
