As a UW-Madison campus affiliated, nature-focused, early childhood education center, Little Chicks Learning Academy (LCLA) is a leader in the field of early childhood education in our community.
Traditional Program

Our Traditional Program focuses
firmly on attachment, with a looping
philosophy that keeps the children with
their two core teachers from birth to Preschool.

Non-Traditional Program

Our Non-Traditional Program offers same-day,
hour-by-hour reservations. This unique
program allows us to partner with
UW-Madison to support their students and staff.


Our Non-Traditional Program is a Plan B for many families when those unexpected things come up. If you are a first-time or return user, make your reservation here.

What our families say about us...

We absolutely love Little Chicks Learning Academy. We have used both nontraditional and traditional care with this wonderful center. The teachers and staff are phenomenal. Our 18-month-old has been with the traditional center since September and we have had an amazing experience. His teachers are warm, dynamic, highly educated, incredibly caring, and our kid comes home happy, bright, and smiling every day. Each day my partner and I see how much he is learning with his teachers and fellow classmates, and we leave him each day with absolute peace of mind knowing that he is with people who truly love him. We love the whole philosophy of the center, we deeply appreciate the relationships we have developed with his teachers and other staff, and we have found a home with Little Chicks. Thank you for taking such tremendous care of our kiddo!
