Flagstaff Academy Preschool



Flagstaff Academy offers a high-quality full- and part-time preschool program for ages 3-5 years old. The fee-based program, founded in 2009, incorporates the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence Curriculum and Early Learning Developmental Guidelines. Children in the preschool program develop both socially and academically, meet new friends, and discover that learning is fun through play-based activities.

New for the 2022-2023 school year is Dragons' Den, a full-day care add-on option for preschool families. As a participant in Dragons' Den, your child's preschool day is seamlessly integrated into their wraparound care. Dragons' Den will complement your child's preschool experience. Much like the Core Knowledge learning found in Flagstaff PreK-8 classrooms, Dragons' Den will support daily classroom lessons. Students will remain in a single classroom for the day to minimize transitions.
