    Aldrich Nursery School helps children learn and develop by providing opportunities to grow through exploration, experimentation, problem-solving and self-expression. Our mission is to provide an inclusive, developmentally based program that equally fosters a child's social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development, focusing on intentional / interactive play.

    Our program is unique because we represent a cross-section of the diverse, international world in which our children will soon become contributing members. Of 360 students - 109 speak languages from 34 countries, 50 benefit from financial assistance and 30 friends have unique and special needs. Created over 70 years ago by the Mayo Clinic, Aldrich continues in that tradition of excellence - collaborating with partners and implementing the very best research-based practices in early learning.
