One City is located on Madison’s South Side at 2012 Fisher Street in the former South Madison Day Care Facility, just two blocks from South Park Street, one block from Penn Park, and 50 feet from the backdoor of the Taft Street-Boys and Girls Club.
The 10,238 square feet facility has eight large classrooms with child-sized bathrooms attached to every classroom, a commercial kitchen, laundry room, teacher resource room, six garden plots, two playgrounds (one for infants to 2 year olds and one for 3 to 5 year olds), two large storage areas and seven administrative offices.
One City is in the process of making some important and exciting upgrades to its facility. We are adding an elevator, ADA-standard bathroom, and new lighting, flooring and wall-paint throughout our building. We are also upgrading our kitchen, playgrounds and technology.
Designed by prominent local Japanese American Architect, Henry Kanazawa, the South Madison Day Care facility was built in 1969 by Attic Angel Association of Madison and The Foundation for Friendship following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
