TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Affordable, structured care for infants up to preschool has been a move pushed by new Tucson Unified School District superintendent HT Sanchez to build loyalty with employees and parents, as well as improve students' learning ability when they enter the classroom.

Wednesday night was one of two nights parents could find out about TUSD's early learning centers that will open July 1.  One will be at the former Brichta Elementary School, and the other at the former site of Schumaker Elementary School.

TUSD employees can enroll infants as young as six weeks up to two years old.  They and members of the community can also enroll toddlers up to preschool.

Employees will have discounted rates as a benefit, which will be in the $450-a-month range for them, which will include two meals and a snack each day.  Hours will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

It's about one hundred dollars more for community members.

This program will also aim to develop cognitive physical and social skills for the children, which can both get future students better prepared for a learning environment, and build loyalty with employees as well as parents.

The next informational meeting is at Duffy Service Center in midtown at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.  Find out more at http://www.tusd1.org/contents/events_earlylearning2.html

    Thanksgiving dinner plans take a detour when it comes to a good deal. Shoppers were out, with their wallets out, at the Tucson Premium Outlets in Marana Thursday night, Nov. 23. But any signs of chaotic holiday shopping were muted, just as the shoppers had hoped.
