Our facility will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 22nd through Friday, Nov. 24th in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Our building will reopen to the public at 10am on Saturday, Nov. 25th.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

Kindergarten Chat

January 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Movin’ on to Kindergarten?

You’re Invited!

Join us for a coffee chat with ALNP Staff, centered on Kindergarten and what to expect.

The end of the school year is in our sights, which means many families are thinking about kindergarten for next year. Do you have questions about kindergarten in the Madison area? Do you want to talk to other parents whose nature preschooler will be going to kindergarten? Are you anxious about whether or not your child will be ready for kindergarten? This open-ended chat will be facilitated by Courtney & Amy, both former kindergarten teachers, who will be there to answer questions about what a kindergarten classroom is like. We hope this will be a time for families to share resources and ask questions with each other. Coffee will be provided.

When is it? Wednesday, January 25th at 9am • Aldo Leopold Nature Preschool

Who should come? ALNP families who would like to talk or learn more about kindergarten! This can include those going to 4K as well. You are welcome to bring a friend or neighbor. This event is free.

Where is it? Aldo Leopold Nature Center Classroom #7. Enter through the preschool doors and take your first right into the Admin hallway and then first left into Learning Lab 7.
