There are many ways to get the first array value based on the array type 

If you have indexed array you can use  

array_values() function 

array_values() used to re-index array. then you can access the first element with index 0 

Example 

<?php
    $my_index_array = [0=>'One',1=>'Two',4=>'Three'];
    $my_index_array=array_values($my_index_array);
    echo(($my_index_array[0])); 
?>

Output

One

 

If you have Associative arrays you can use 

array_keys() Function

array_keys() used to get all keys of the array then you can access the first array value with index $keys[0] 

Example

<?php
    $my_index_array = ['One'=>1,'Two'=>2,'Three'=>3];
    $keys = array_keys($my_index_array);
    echo $my_index_array[$keys[0]];
?>

Output
