A child playing outside during Eagle's Wing

Eagle’s Wing first opened its doors in August 1992 with two classrooms located in an apartment building. In 1998, the program was moved into the current space in the Eagle Heights Community Center. Throughout the years, additional programs have been added to Eagle's Wing to meet community child-care needs while remaining committed to semester scheduling to meet the unique needs of enrolled student families.

Accreditation & Staff

Eagle's Wing childcare and education programs are accredited by the City of Madison. The program is licensed by the state of Wisconsin and it features the following staff:

  • Director of Licensed and Resident Programs and Assistant Director of Licensed and Resident Programs
  • Lead teachers with certification and at least a four-year degree in early childhood education
  • Assistant teachers
  • Student interns and volunteers to help lower the ratio of children to adults
  • Eagle's Wing has a very international staff who speak many language and have global experiences they share in the classroom

Late Drop-off & Early Pick-up

Since family needs and daily schedules vary, some parents may need to drop-off their child late or pick them up early. Parents may drop off their children anytime after the program begins and pick a child up anytime before the end of the session in which a child is enrolled. However, fees are based on reserved time slots and not on actual time attended.
