At Castlehill Country Day School we ensure that our students feel safe, nurtured and cared for. Each day they are guided with individual care and attention, ensuring each child thrives. Our toddler room focuses on building a kind, artistic, play and discovery-based learning environment that will help grow your child’s language, movement and sensory impressions.
Our toddler classroom is a safe, bright, nurturing and happy environment for your young child. In addition to the classroom, our Toddlers experience the beautiful Tucson climate as they visit our popular desert tortoise habitat, enjoy outdoor nature walks and a private toddler playground.

We always focus on open communication with our parents and guardians.
