Laveen To Add Third Preschool at Vista del Sur

The Laveen District will be opening its third preschool program in Fall 2019 at Vista del Sur. Vista will join Desert Meadows and Paseo Pointe schools in offering a curriculum based preschool program for children ages 3-5 years old.

Like Desert Meadows, Vista’s program will offer general education instruction. Paseo Pointe’s preschool will continue to offer dual language immersion programming. The district also operates a developmental preschool for children with special needs on the Laveen School campus.

In 2017, the Laveen District launched two new preschool programs at Paseo Pointe School – with  general education and Spanish immersion offerings. The following year, the general education program expanded to Desert Meadows School allowing Paseo Pointe to focus on dual language immersion. Both preschool programs have surpassed all expectations. They have been extremely popular, filling up quickly and remaining full throughout the year.

Construction of the preschool addition at Vista will take place in Spring 2019 in preparation of opening in August 2019. The addition is designed by EMC2 architects and will be built by SD Crane Builders, Inc.

Preschool registrations will be accepted beginning at 8:30 a.m. on February 5, 2019. Registrations must be completed in person at the Kids Klub office located at Desert Meadows School, 6855 W. Meadows Loop East. Visit our preschool page for more details including fees, requirements, and program offerings.

Desert Meadows School preschool students finished their first unit of “Who we are” and made paper statues of themselves to express how individual and special they are.

Students brought home outlines of themselves and, with their families, listed all the things that make them special. The statues were returned to school and displayed around the cafeteria so families could view them.
