WELCOME TO TCS PRESCHOOL & PARENT COOPERATIVE
Tucson Community School is a centrally located preschool in Tucson, Arizona. Since our establishment in 1948, our focus has always been on a child centric development curriculum that emphasizes growth through safe, independent exploration using only positive encouragement. Our unique approach to educating young children is partnered in our belief that families are critical in a child’s early learning experiences. As a parent cooperative, TCS was created, built, and maintained by dedicated families who wanted to actively participate in their child’s education.
Your interest in our school, means that you believe young children learn through play and best practices to engage young minds and allow for individual growth. Additionally, you are committing to active participation in our parent cooperative that fully supports our schools function and community.
