Founded by Mayo Clinic, Aldrich Memorial Nursery School is a local, nonprofit, nationally accredited preschool. Aldrich has earned its rich reputation by serving Rochester families for over 70 years.

We promote child-directed, hands-on learning that fosters a love of learning without adding undue stress. Children learn through experimentation, manipulation, observation, and social interaction.

Aldrich is fortunate to have an active Board of Directors which provides families with a fall festival, book fair, spring carnival, parent outreach classes, family restaurant nights, and much more.

INTENTIONALLY PLANNED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES THAT FEEL LIKE PLAY
