The preschool, which has locations throughout the U.S., will be located near Vista Ridge High School at 2101 E. Park St. and will offer preschool and after-school care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years, Director Afshan Akbar said. The business is owned by parent company Phoenix Children's Academy, which is based in Arizona.
The estimated 12,050-square-foot campus will have an art studio, an outdoor classroom area, and computer and science labs, Akbar said. The school will also include play structures and possibly a garden.
“Artwork is something we encourage a lot of in the classroom so [the art studio] will be another area where [students] can experiment with art material," she said.
Parents may tour the school once construction is complete, and registration is now open. The school is also hiring for teacher positions, which are listed on the school's website.
