“I’ve sent both of my children to God’s Garden, nearly 7 years apart, and had equally great experiences with both. The teachers are phenomenal – caring and highly educated, and I am impressed with the thought and creativity that goes into their day-to-day activities.” — Jennifer Lamoreaux.


“God’s Garden Preschool hits all the W’s for me: warm, welcoming and wonderful. My kids enjoyed learning through play. I loved the faith-based curriculum and my husband loved the price. We felt part of a community from the moment we walked in the front doors.” — Nicole Koester


“Knowing that the early years are so important, we chose God’s Garden because of the quality learning environment to help our child be prepared for kindergarten. The staff provide a loving and nurturing experience and it’s reassuring to know our child is in such great hands!” – Donna Shott.


“We wanted a preschool where our kids could learn and grow in a positive, loving and safe environment, and we found it in the God’s Garden Preschool. From the first day, the teachers warmly welcomed our son into their classroom and showed him God’s love in every moment. I’m convinced there is a special place in heaven for teachers who work with preschoolers, and the teachers at God’s Garden are all exceptional!  He came out of class that first morning with an enormous smile on his face and couldn’t wait to go back. In the 2’s class last year, he did countless creative crafts and science experiments, learned new songs, played games, went on “bear hunts”, and made wonderful new friends. We’ve seen his creativity, his confidence, his intellect, and his love of books and Bible stories grow over the past year. In addition, we have been personally blessed by Michelle Rhodes and the staff as they have shared their advice and suggestions on how to parent challenging toddlers. They support not just the students but their families as well. We are so thankful to have an extended family through God’s Garden and Horizon Church!”  ~ Bristol Family


“My daughter has been attending God’s Garden Preschool for over a year and I have been more than happy with the care my daughter has been receiving.  God’s Garden Preschool provides sensitive and responsive care.  The teachers act as important attachment figures, setting the stage for developing strong positive relationships with others.  My daughter is safe, loved, and protected.  If the heart feels good, then the brain can learn.  My daughter wants to come to school and she is very attached to the teachers in her classroom.  The teachers create an environment that is responsive to the needs of all children enrolled.  It is very personalized, and my daughter has grown so much.  Her language and social emotional skills have exploded in the last year! She is sharing with friends and her self-confidence is through the roof!  The Director is very involved; she conducts observations and assessments and provides teachers with feedback so they can grow and improve on a continual basis.  As an educator myself, I am very particular about the type of care that my daughter receives, and I would highly recommend God’s Garden to all my friends and family.” ~ Yaneth Laird


“God’s Garden has literally been a godsend to our family! In a time of uncertainty, our kindergartener was able to safely receive an amazing in person, nurturing education. The small class size and nurturing staff have have went above and beyond all year. Choosing a private education, was not an easy decision for our family, but we have been surprised to learn that with AZ tax programs, our kindergarten tuition could be fully covered, and truly was! We could not recommend this school enough!” ~ Brennan Family


“Our experience with God’s Garden was amazing. From our first phone call with the director all the way to kindergarten graduation we couldn’t have been happier. Our daughter flourished during her time there. God’s Garden has created a wonderful environment of learning, fun, love and friendship, which we were blessed to be a part of.” ~Crystol Garrison


It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for God’s Garden. When you enter God’s Garden, you are entering this loving school, where you are greeted by such friendly, engaging, and nurturing educators. At God’s Garden they take the time to know each child and their families.  My daughter has been attending God’s Garden for 3 years. To say we have enjoyed our time at God’s Garden would be a huge understatement. The teachers at God’s Garden make sure all children feel God’s special love for them, while providing academic skills necessary to transition to Kindergarten. The teachers also make the children feel valued and important. The children participate in programs and activities that encourage them to engage, question, and analyze the world around them, enriching their lives and forming a love of learning academics and God’s love for each of us.  I know it is rare to find a pre-school with all of these outstanding qualities, which is why I cannot recommend God’s Garden enough to friends, family and anyone who wants their children in a caring and nurturing learning environment.  ~Katie Jefferson


“What an incredible place to have my children grow and give them the foundation they need to step into kindergarten. We have been at Gods Garden for 3 years, our daughter started in the 2’s program and we could not possibly love this place any more than we do.  The Director, Michelle, is absolutely wonderful and has created such a safe, warm and loving place for my girls to learn and develop. The staff is unmatched they engage my children uniquely (because they are very different) and make them feel seen, valued, and loved. In addition to preparing them for kindergarten, they are also providing an environment for tremendous social and emotional development.  In addition to the ABC’s, numbers, and other preschool basics my children are learning how to deal with peer conflict and how to properly express their emotions, which is just as, if not more valuable.  I cannot imagine sending my child anywhere else, because I do not believe there is anywhere quite like this place. We are so grateful to Michelle, the staff, and the church for providing such a beautiful place for my children.  TAKE A TOUR and see for yourself, one step in the front door and you will know you’ve found a home for your kids to learn, grow, and THRIVE.”  ~ Taylor Ake


“Selecting a preschool in Ahwatukee can feel overwhelming because of the numerous options. While each school offers something unique, God’s Garden Preschool checks all the boxes. It has fantastic teachers and staff, flexible hours, budget-friendly pricing and a curriculum that balances free play and structured learning. However, the deciding factor for me is the faith-based values. I feel comfortable knowing my children are taught Christ-like attributes in a loving environment. If you send your child to God’s Garden Preschool your child will learn more than numbers, letters, shapes, and colors – your child will learn a sense of purpose and belonging. They will be taught to love the Lord.” – Nicole Koester


“As the parent of two young boys, we could not be happier with the decision to send our children to God’s Garden.  The facilities are safe and secure and the environment is immediately heartwarming and welcoming.  You can feel the enthusiasm the experienced teaching staff and administrative team have for working with young children.  God’s Garden uniquely benefits from having a dedicated doctoral-level director who invests her time and passion into a child-centered  learning through play program that promotes exploration, kindness, socialization and the elements necessary for kindergarten.” – Rob Budach


“God’s Garden preschool has been such a blessing to our family.  Both of our kids left preschool prepared for the kindergarten curriculum as well as socially and emotionally ready for their new school adventures. We have made lifelong friendships with both other GG families and staff. I can’t imagine a better, more loving environment for a preschooler.” – Genevieve Kennedy


“We recently moved to Phoenix from the East Coast and were so fortunate to find such a great and welcoming preschool for our son right here in our Ahwatukee. Our family was immediately greeted with open arms which helped us feel comfortable and excited from day one. The community of teachers, administrators, and families do an incredible job building and maintaining a culture of inclusiveness and building relationships of trust with the students.  The curriculum is focused on providing an uplifting, loving environment which allows students of all backgrounds and personalities to blossom according to their individual needs. Our son has a fun loving and goofy personality and the teachers have done an amazing job letting him be himself while providing steady direction and guidance for his educational growth. He has quickly acclimated to the coursework and we have seen great improvements in his development.  We are 100% confident that he is learning the emotional and educational skills required for success as he transitions to kindergarten next year.”  ~The Evans Family
