Welcome to The Family School!


In 1992 co-founders Susan Cedar and Sue Johnson saw the need for a new kind of early childhood center in Phoenix and created The Family School. We are unique in serving a diverse community of 65 children and their families with a comprehensive program that includes:

• the highest quality, NAEYC accredited, preschool and kindergarten 

• before-school and after-school child care 

• special education, play therapy and counseling as needed for all our children and families. 

• In addition, we are open all day and year-round. 

For more information about what we do, see Our Programs.

If you are new to our school, we suggest that you check out the Prospective Families pages and the About Us pages where you’ll find more about our whole child/whole family philosophy, read some stories about our early childhood community and find out more about our staff and board.

If you are a family currently enrolled, go to Current Families to find the school calendar, the tuition schedule and more information about coming events.  

To help us continue to serve our students and families who need assistance, please consider how you might join this community.  You’ll find ways to participate at the Support Us tab.
