The Phoenix School
Our program stresses child-centered learning, with ample opportunity for growth and decision-making. Teachers interact closely with children, and respect each child as a unique individual.
Phoenix has been taking care of Decatur kids for 30 years! We often hear parents and teachers comment that they love Phoenix because it feels like a big family. Parents, kids and teachers all know each other and often linger in the halls or on the playground talking and playing. We sponsor picnics, parties and other special activities for families to get to know each other. This gives parents and siblings more opportunities to become a part of the Phoenix family. Here we are in the Decatur Fourth of July Parade!
The Phoenix School does not discriminate in its dealings with children, parents, staff or visitors. We consider differences in age, gender, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, birth status, sexual orientation and political affiliation to be essential to the heterogeneity and rich diversity we offer. We expect all parents, staff and visitors to show tolerance and sensitivity so that children will learn to value, respect and enjoy people’s similiarities and differences.
We realize the importance of good nutrition. Each week we plan a wide variety of great-tasting, healthy meals and snacks that kids love.
