Program

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.
