Liberty Preschool is located in the Lynwood Elementary building in the Southwest Hills neighborhood, near the intersection of Mann Road and Kentucky Avenue. We chose the name "Liberty" to reflect the rich heritage of public schooling in Decatur Township. Liberty was the name of one of the earliest schools in the area, having been established in 1870.
