The Village Preschool • 2156 E. Liberty Lane

Tucked inside Desert Foothills United Methodist Church, The Village Preschool prides itself in being a school committed to small class sizes and individual attention.

With a total enrollment of about 22 kids, the small, private preschool offers programs for 2- and 3-year-olds as well as a pre-kindergarten class.

With its motto of being a place “where children are celebrated,” The Village started in 2000 with the intention of developing well-rounded children.

According to their website, the young learners leave socially, emotionally and academically prepared for kindergarten.

Registration for the 2013-14 school year began in February. The school is located at 2156 E. Liberty Lane.

For the past five years, Ambassador Academy in Ahwatukee has been offering its students a small-classroom setting.

Each class has no more than 15 students, which Dr. Elba Iris Reyes, Ambassador Academy’s principal, said is what sets it apart from other charter schools.

The school’s current enrollment stands at 47 students from kindergarten through fifth grade.

“We have academic excellence in teaching and learning, we have high expectations for our teachers and their practices, and we have high expectations for our students,” Reyes said. “We also focus on leadership and character development.”

Ambassador Academy’s Parent Teacher Organization is devising fundraising opportunities to raise money for the school’s playground facility.
