About 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 academic year and summer scheduling, to meet the unique needs of enrolled student families. Eagle’s Wing is nationally accredited through the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA). National accreditation is required for centers who enroll student families who have CCAMPIS (Child Care Access Means Parents in School) funding. CCAMPIS is provided through a federal grant that has been integral in aiding student parents as they achieve their academic goals. In addition. we have been accredited by the City of Madison’s Child Care Unit for over 20 years.
