The Playing Field offers the highest level of early care and education to children from varied socio-economic backgrounds and is dedicated to breaking the barriers faced by low-income families in accessing high-quality early care and education alongside children from more advantaged backgrounds. Segregation exists within our nation’s child care centers. High quality early education programs are out of reach for many families. Even with subsidized child care, the rates at many centers are simply too high for struggling families. Children most in need of quality early education are not able to access it. We seek to care for children in the context of our diverse community and see this as a beginning step towards minimizing the disparity between our youngest citizens.

Cost – For families who rely on child care subsidies, most high-quality programs are far out of reach. The parent portion of the payment would simply be too high. We assure no family is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Transportation – Through a partnership with Early Head Start, our midtown location offers transportation within the city limits of Madison.

I appreciate that it is required to first take a tour and that you only are asked to pay the $50 fee if there is a reasonable chance for an opening.

Very much appreciate the transparency and detail. Would’ve liked the opportunity to drop off after hearing how unlikely it is that we’d get in.
