Valley Day School full spelling logo


For 53 years we've provided children with a Christian environment built on a sound educational program, where meaningful relationships can develop between home and school, child and teacher, and the world around them.

We emphasize learning through play and experiences with art, music, physical movement, blocks, gardening, cooking, stories, and conversations. Equal emphasis is placed on developing social, emotional, cognitive and pre-academic skills.

The Day School provides before- and after-school programs (Early Birds and Lunch Bunch), plus enrichment programs such as Sportball and Twinkle Toes Dance (separate fees apply for these programs).

Our school community comes together throughout the year for family activities, such as Family Fun Night and Day School Sunday in the fall and Movie Night, Open House and our Mother’s Tea in the spring. The school children come together for a variety of fun activities as well.

We encourage you to visit our facility to get a better look at what we have to offer. You may set up a tour by emailing or calling Valley Day School Director Meghan Gottfredson, at 480-991-6424, ext. 125.
