God’s Garden Preschool of Ahwatukee has been in the area for the past 14 years, giving each child a centralized learning experience.

Students range from 2 to 4 years old, with more than 140 students currently enrolled at the school.

Throughout the summer, God’s Garden offered weekly summer programs that were themed differently each week.

Some themes ranged from “Cat in the Hat,” science, math to superheroes.

Director Beth Wilson said programs were flexible to the needs of the community.

“We changed it up every year to the demand of what’s out there,” she said.

God’s Garden will also offer enrichment classes for students from culinary to dual-language courses.

Currently, God’s Garden is accepting enrollment for the fall semester, which will begin on Aug. 4.

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.
