About the Provider

Description: The KidzCo Early Learning Center provides child care for children ages one month to 12 years at three different locations in Tucson, Arizona. Our learning center is clean and safe for your children, with a staff of trained professionals with more than 10 years of child care and educational experience. We believe children learn through the magic of play and develop through group activities. You and your children receive more one-on-one interaction at our small, local facility than at the larger, corporate ones. To suit your family’s budget, we also offer competitive pricing. Every child is unique, and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self-esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural strengths. A child sees the world around them with wonder and awe, and we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.

Amazing daycare,
My son has been going here for years. They are always there for me and they have always gone out of their way to make life easier on me. I have a child with developmental delays and they not only are fully capable of taking care of him, but they also make sure he is included in all activities, and that the other kids play nicely with him.

Thank you to the staff of Kidzco,
Darryl

Three of my children attend school at KidzCo. It is a blessing to have my children in such a well maintained facility. The staff are friendly and treat my children as if they were theirs. This facility is one of the best in Tucson!
