About the Provider

Description: Pima Country Day School re-joined our family in December 2014. We are the original owners of the school of which the vision fourteen years ago is the same today, to create the premier preschool – in uniqueness, program, and value.

While attending PCDS your child will develop friendships and sharing while immersed in a fun, academic, learning environment. From our innovative infant and toddler curriculum, including sign language communication and early literacy skills, to the cutting edge curriculum implemented in our Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness classrooms, to our highly-acclaimed school-age and summer programs – your child will experience the highest quality education and developmentally appropriate learning environment available.

Throughout the year, you can look forward to a variety of activities, special events and programs that will give you the opportunity to be involved in your child’s early education, including parent meetings, active parent committees, open houses, charity events, pot luck dinners and holiday parties.

Our desire is to make you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to place your child in our care. We will continue to strive to exceed your expectations by creating an environment filled with warmth, encouragement and exploration.
