At University Avenue Discovery Center Preschool, our pursuit is to emphasize equality, solidarity, emotional literacy, and exploration of the arts within our classrooms and surrounding community.  It is our goal to build on a child’s academic foundation with play-based learning, hands-on experimentation, group discussions and use of local resources as an extension of our classroom environments.  UADC is committed to working cooperatively with all families to foster an interwoven community that supports and enriches our shared experiences.  We provide individualized, child driven programming for learners aged 2 years 9 months -10 years old and support for their families in the heart of Madison.

    We appreciate UADC provides such a wonderful place, very nice, professional teachers and amazing classes to our 4-year-old boy. He enjoys here very much. As a Chinese student, we are happy to see his English made a great progress. All teachers here work hard from 7am to 5:30pm, this is really a long time, although good for parents but hard for teachers, but fortunately they are still full of energy and passionable to their job!

    We love UADC. The teachers, staff, and support educators have taken tremendous care of our two girls and we would recommend this preschool to anyone who wants their child(ren) to learn about how to live in community with people of all backgrounds.

    UADC is an outstanding school. The school is very well managed, and their teachers are top notch. When we first moved to Madison with our 3 year old, we were looking for a school with a play-based curriculum, caring and experienced teachers, wholesome food, and good management. UADC met all of our criteria, and continues to exceed our expectations. The teachers are so kind and caring. I was a little worried about our son’s transition because we had moved from out of state and he had previously been in a different environment where they spoke a different language. The teachers’ were incredibly kind and gentle, saying that the most important part of the first weeks was for him to feel comfortable, and only after he felt comfortable would they begin to reinforce the flow and structure of the class a bit more. It worked perfectly for him. When we first visited the school, the director told us that they prioritize their staff and try to compensate them appropriately and that the food was from an organic, veteran owned coop. We were sold! We are so happy that we discovered UADC, and highly recommend it for anyone else!
