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.

Brian Gibson, principal at Kyrene de las Lomas Elementary School, poses with students at Lomas on Wednesday, Aug. 6.

Kyrene de las Lomas is one of the 12 Kyrene schools in the Ahwatukee area that has been educating its students for many years.

Currently, enrollment at Lomas stands at 744 students from grades preschool through fifth grade.

Principal Brian Gibson said the new school year would bring opportunities for new staff members to be immersed within Lomas’ community.

“We already have a seasoned staff, and we’ve been working on new programs,” he said.

Gibson, who’s starting up his sixth year as principal, said Lomas’ diverse population was what set the school apart from other schools around the district and was a great representation of different communities.

Recently, Lomas earned a “B” grade for the 2013-14 school year from the Arizona Department of Education.
