Big Oak is a small, not-for-profit, progressive childcare center on Madison's east side

Big Oak strives to provide a home-like atmosphere in a building that was converted from a private family home in 1987. The toddler programs are on the first floor and the preschool is upstairs. A child can enter Big Oak as a toddler and move into the preschool until they’re ready for kindergarten. Though each program has separate goals, occasionally activities are provided that all Big Oak children can participate in together.

Our staff recognizes the need for consistency. The routines and schedules we provide incorporate activities that foster children’s interests and emerging skills, while allowing children freedom of movement, in order to provide a positive and empowering experience.

We are a state licensed and city accredited program serving children one to five years old.
