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), Estrella Foothills, and Vista del Sur

Desert Meadows, Estrella Foothills,  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.
