The Laveen Elementary School District offers three preschool programs at select campuses within the district.

Preschool for Children with Special Needs

The district’s developmental preschool for children with special needs operates on the campus of Laveen Elementary School.

Additional Preschool Programs

Dual Language Immersion Preschool-Paseo Pointe

Paseo Pointe School offers a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) preschool. In the Dual Language Immersion program students receive instruction in two languages. Paseo follows a 50/50 model in which participating students spend half of their day in a classroom where teaching and learning are done in English, while the other half of the day is done in Spanish. Students participating in the DLI preschool will continue with the immersion program as they transition through the grade levels at Paseo.

General Education Preschool-Desert Meadows (Computer Coding) and Vista del Sur (opening August 2019, pending licensing)

Desert Meadows and Vista del Sur offer a general education preschool in which instruction is provided solely in English. Desert Meadows’ signature program is computer science and preschoolers will be introduced to computer coding. This will build a foundation that will better prepare them for elementary school.

Requirements

Preschool is open to children that are four and five years old. Three-year-olds may be accepted depending on available space. Children must be potty-trained prior to enrolling.
