The benefits of early childhood education are numerous. One of the most important is that attending a quality kindergarten increases the probability of a child doing better in school and finishing high school.

Kindergarten provides your child the chance to:

  • Gain exposure to new ideas and concepts
  • Learn social skills by interacting with other children
  • Develop self-awareness and respect for others
  • Cultivate a love of learning that lasts a lifetime

Selecting a TUSD school means you are opening up an abundance of opportunities for your child. As the largest district in Southern Arizona, TUSD can offer more specialized learning environments, more programs, and more activities than any other district in the region. Such opportunities allow your child to thrive in a stimulating educational atmosphere.

TUSD has certified teachers, playgrounds that meet safety codes, and healthful breakfast and lunch options.

Additionally, TUSD offers transportation to and from school for eligible students. See the Transportation pages to learn more about our service and to determine eligibility.
