Come visit Tucson Unified's elementary and K-8 schools to learn about free all-day kindergarten at Tucson Unified!

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 Tucson Unified school provides you with an abundance of opportunities for your child. As the largest district in Southern Arizona, we 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, and your child may be eligible for free transportation through TUSD's Incentive Transportation. (Use the School Choice calculator to see the list of schools for which your child will qualify for free transportation.)
