Welcome to Mini-Skool Early Learning Center in the Craycroft neighborhood of Tucson, Arizona, where little kids play with big ideas and have fun learning every day! We offer a unique, research-directed curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, as well as special programs for school-age kids.

About Mini-Skool

Parents and children love the warm, homey environment at Mini-Skool Early Learning Center Craycroft. Smiling teachers and staff greet families each morning, even comforting little ones who aren’t ready to part from their mommies and daddies for the day.

Classrooms are cozy and inviting, offering colorful, appealing, and age-appropriate toys and equipment. Perhaps kids love the playgrounds the most because the world around them is often as vivid as their burgeoning imaginations: with our school located just outside the main gate of Davis Monthon Air Force Base, an array of aircraft in various shapes and sizes fly past every day.

Our Philosophy

At Mini-Skool Early Learning Center Craycroft, we focus on developing the whole child. Our Pathway to Learning curriculum is designed to foster cognitive, emotional, social, and physical growth all while keeping kids having a great time every day.

What Makes Us Unique

Mini-Skool Early Learning Center has been preparing children for success in primary school and beyond for over 20 years. Many of our teachers and staff have been with us for more than 10 years—a fact that reflects their commitment to the education and well being of the children of Tucson. Since so many families opt to enroll all of their kids in our early learning center, we even offer a sibling discount to show our appreciation of their loyalty to us. With a loving and caring staff ready to embrace you and your child, we look forward to you becoming a part of our family.

This school is amazing! They keep my son active and happy all day. The camera system is great so I can pop in and check on him when I want. Also they send you updates throughout the day about your child. Everyone is so caring and always welcoming and nice. It is truly a second family. We love Pusch Ridge !!

Our son loved his teachers in the clownfish class. Beth and Amber prepare educational and fun activities for them everyday. I love that they share pictures throughout the day. It helps me feel like I'm missing less. We are torn knowing he has moved up but happy he will be with Debbie and Wendy. Our daughter loved their class! Now being in the Orca class, our daughter loves her teacher Donnarey. She looks forward to seeing her every morning and always says how much she enjoys being around her. She even picks going to class with Donnarey over being with Grandma!
