The overall goal of the Aldrich program is to provide a safe, happy, growth-enhancing group experience for each child. We offer programs from ages 2-5.


Our once a week, short-term enrichment opportunities are the perfect way for your child to explore their interest and aptitude for new topics.

What is Aldrich?

What is Aldrich, and why is it so important to so many families? We are grateful to Shattered Prism Studios for sharing this story of our school.

Our Legacy

Aldrich has a rich history and quality reputation in the Rochester community. Pediatricians and child psychiatrists, including Dr. Benjamin Spock, were involved in a Mayo Clinic study of child development in the 1940s which eventually led to the inception of Aldrich.
