Program

Accreditation & Staff

Eagle’s Wing is nationally accredited through the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA). We have also been accredited by the City of Madison’s Child Care Unit for over 20 years. Previously, we were concurrently accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), but made the switch so we could enroll children in the community who have Access for Infants and Mothers (AIM) funding. AIM is a federal grant that has been integral in aiding student parents as they achieve their academic goals.

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.
