The school is play-based, not academic based. This is good since at this age kids should be playing and learning, not learning academics yet. If you do your research about the school this is easily seen. If you do research on why children should be playing and the educational benefits of play you will see why this school is an awesome option for that. Having strong friendships, fun, and learning as you play should be the main objective for this age. School is for reading, writing, and math in a formal setting.

TCS is Tucson's only parent-owned cooperative preschool/kindergarten. The cooperative model makes all the difference. Parents don't just drop off the kids at school. At TCS, parents are required by contract to participate in the running of the school. The school's motto is "Kids and parents learning together." TCS is Tucson's first racially integrated school, established 1948. My kids, alumni, say, "I wish I could go to TCS forever." I can't say enough good stuff about TCS.

TCS is a family-oriented and family-friendly preschool, but at the expense of academics. My kids had a great time, made strong friends, but are not where we would like them to be with reading, writing, math. This is not important to most TCS parents, many of whom appear to be there for social reasons and not for their children, but it is important to us which is why we are changing schools.

This is a fantastic school with a strong focus on self-directed learning activities. A tremendous amount of parental involvemet is required, but it is worth the extra effort.
