Welcome to TCS
Tucson Community School is a child-centered, play-based preschool located in central Tucson, Arizona. For 75 years, we have created a warm and supportive environment for 2 to 5-year-olds to learn and grow through independent exploration and family participation.
How We're Different
Established in 1948, Tucson Community School is the city's oldest and only cooperative preschool. We are not just a school for children, but a school for families. At TCS, everyone has a chance to learn and grow, make lifelong connections, and become deeply involved in their child’s early education.

TCS relies upon the generosity of past alumni and the greater Tucson community to keep us moving forward. Your contribution allows TCS to continue providing child-centered, play-based education to generations of children and families.
This school is truly a Tucson treasure! The children play with enthusiasm and learn through exploration. Teachers are invested in each child—my kiddo feels completely welcomed, cared for, and inspired to grow. We love the community approach.”
