Registration open during summer for openings at Paseo Pointe and Desert Meadows programs; waitlist established for new preschool at Vista del Sur.
Guest column from Laveen Elementary School District
The Laveen District will be opening its third preschool in Fall 2019 at Vista del Sur. Vista will join Desert Meadows and Paseo Pointe schools in offering an academics 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 Elementary School campus.
In 2017, the Laveen District launched two new preschool programs at Paseo Pointe School with both 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 expectations. They have been extremely popular, filling up quickly and remaining full throughout the year.
While Vista’s preschool already has a waitlist, Desert Meadows and Paseo Pointe both have a few spots still open. Preschool registrations will be accepted throughout the summer and must be completed in person at the Kids Klub office located at Desert Meadows School, 6855 W. Meadows Loop East.
