The Phoenix School has been taking care of Decatur kids for 30+ great years! The school was founded in 1979 by a group of parents who, like today’s parents, wanted a better child care alternative for their children.

The Phoenix School provides exceptional child care for children from 8 weeks through 5 years of age, including the state-funded Georgia Pre-K program. We offer full-time care, year-round.
