About Us

The WhizKidz Story

Welcome to Whiz Kidz Preschool,  when you join us, you’re joining a community, a school family. We are so much more than just childcare.  We strive to create a safe place for children to grow and thrive; as well as offer parents the convenience of all-inclusive care and foster a place for parents to meet and create a support system to navigate parenting together.

What sets Whiz Kidz apart is that our play based curriculum and environments are intentionally planned so that children are scaffolded into new learning opportunities.  Our program considers the whole child not just mind.  We do that by reciting our daily positive affirmations, gratitude prayer before meals, conscious discipline principles, social emotional awareness, as well as including learning experiences not just structured activities.

Our weekly enrichment classes include Gardening, Music, PE, Cooking and Art/Tinkering, offer ample opportunities for children to explore their own expression and creativity.

Testimonial 07

I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Whiz Kidz- Scottsdale. We toured a few other daycare centers before deciding on Whiz Kidz for my (then) 11 week old. We got a warm welcome and a full tour of the campus and had a positive vibe from our first encounter.  The campus is clean and and I have never had a concern or worry about safety. All the other kids and parents seem happy when I see them! You will NOT regret sending your child to Whiz Kidz!

I've been to a few preschools and daycares around north Phoenix, and I can say by far this one is the best.Grateful to have found this establishment, and looking forward to having my two year old grow here over the next few years!

My kids love coming here and I know that I can feel good about leaving them with no problems. In this day and age its hard to find good child care that you can trust with your most treasured gifts, and with Sahuaro I know that my preschooler is getting a great learning experience, making great friends, and building confidence in herself as a soon to be elementary school kid. And I know that my son is in good hands for the after school program. They are never bored and I never hear "I don't want to go to school" since they have been coming here.

Testimonial 04

We could not have asked for a better daycare. We loved everything about Whiz Kidz. The staff were kind and friendly. My daughter was in the infant room and her teachers were Heather and Darrilyn. They were always excited and enthusiastic to see Eden. They did a wonderful job communicating using the Bright Wheel app. I felt completely comfortable leaving her with them. We recently relocated and were so sad to leave. I HIGHLY recommend this daycare!

This place is truly a hidden gem. We have had our two oldest high energy, wild sons attend this preschool over the past two years and they have completely thrived here. I love that Whiz Kidz is small and family oriented. There is very low turn over in staff and it is nice to see familiar faces every day. Any issues/problems that have come up have always been addressed professionally in a kind manner. Our kids love it here and we are so lucky we stumbled across the place when we moved to the neighborhood!
