Creek Day School was established in the fall of 1973 by the Ridgewood Trace apartment complex to provide quality care and early childhood education for the children of its’ residents. The program grew to include children from all of Madison and Fitchburg. 

In the Spring of 1975, a Board of Directors was formed comprised of staff and parents of children attending. Creek Day School, Inc. was established as an independent, non-profit corporation. 

In 1978, Creek relocated to the present site at 2509 McDivitt Road. Creek is licensed through the State division of Child and Family Services. 

In 1980, Creek obtained accreditation through the City of Madison Day Care Unit.  This is a voluntary program and is established to promote high quality programs for young children.
