Established in 1967, Valley Child Care and Learning Center has continuously led the childcare, daycare, and preschool industry in Phoenix, Arizona. Our founder and Grandfather, Paul Emch, began with a simple mission to “provide tender loving care and education to each child.” Paul’s legacy lives on as we continue to uphold his original values and have grown to a well-established name in the Phoenix community. Today, we provide care for nearly 1,900 infants, toddlers, and preschool age children at a total of nine programs. Our convenient locations include North Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Glendale, Anthem,Surprise, El Mirage, Chandler, South Phoenix, and Tempe! At each of our program locations, you will find qualified staff eager to join us in ensuring preschool children are receiving the highest quality care alongside a complete preschool experience. Upon graduation from our program, your child will be equipped to succeed in Kindergarten, and beyond!
As part of our commitment to quality, we partner with Quality First, Arizona’s First Things First initiative.
The 0 – 5 years are critical to the development and lifelong success in children. We are committed to partnering with families during these essential years and equipping them with all they need to be successful.

We believe that every child is a precious, God-given being with basic needs, including the social, physical, emotional, and intellectual components of the self. We will work to instill proper manners and values, including honesty, sharing, respect, and self-worth. Our purpose is to provide a safe and loving environment that meets the needs of your child.
