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.


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

There are no enrichment opportunities scheduled for the 22-23 school year.

Extension classes give children more time to play at school while allowing their families more flexible drop-off and pick-up times.

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.
