Preparing Children for School Success, Leadership and Life.

Institute for Early Learning

Children aren’t the only ones who enroll in One City; parents do as well.

Through our Community Resources Office and Child Development Institute, we will offer informative, insightful and inspiring seminars, workshops, special events and other activities for parents and the entire family.

The Institute will provide a forum for parents, volunteers and community members to learn and work together to foster the positive growth and development of children in their homes, organizations and neighborhoods, and ensure that they are ready for, and thriving in, grade school and the community. One City will also assist parents with accessing education, employment and other learning opportunities for themselves and their children, and grow their network of support in the Greater Madison community.  

If you have expertise in the areas of child development, early childhood literacy, family planning and management, or are an employer, service provider, educational institution, financial institution, housing provider or advocacy agency, or you offer recreational and supplementary learning opportunities to children, and would like to partner with One City, please contact email us at We look forward to speaking with you.
