Planned for Madison’s East Side, the new development will include Red Caboose Child Care, where children will have a safe, modern space to thrive under the tutelage of educators, backed by nearly 50 years of mission-driven experience.
Additionally, Movin’ Out will provide safe, affordable, multi-family apartments that include supportive units for people with disabilities. This shared facility will lay a new track forward for our children’s futures. That begins today. And it begins with your support.
Located in a high-traffic corridor on the corner of East Washington Avenue and 6th Street; part of urban in-fill development
21,000 square feet all on the ground floor to address the growing need for affordable, inclusive childcare
New nature-based playground, kitchen, modern classrooms, community room, and underground parking
Partnering with Movin' Out, Inc., an organization committed to meeting the growing need for accessible, affordable housing
“Movin' Out is proud to partner with Red Caboose on this unique project combining high quality child care and high-quality healthy, affordable housing in one building."
"The Red Caboose/Movin' Out project's location is strategically important in the redevelopment of the East Washington corridor."
"It is brilliant! What an asset this will be for the Union Corners and Eken Park neighborhoods and for the entire city."
"This could be a real game-changer for local families. High teacher retention rate is very rare among childcare centers and reflects the quality of Red Caboose's programming."
"The inclusion of affordable housing and childcare, and the combined track records of both Red Caboose and Movin' Out make this project a true winner for Madison."
"Red Caboose is on track to move to a new location at the corner of East Washington Avenue and 6th Street...for a grand opening in the fall of 2022...its 50th anniversary."
“The collaboration between Red Caboose and Movin’ Out to build an expanded childcare facility and additional affordable housing is an innovative partnership that the Otto Bremer Trust is pleased to invest in. Access to affordable, high-quality childcare is out of reach for many people, and Red Caboose has made it their mission to fulfill this need. The new facility will enable Red Caboose to significantly increase the number of children it cares for while the project will add much-needed affordable housing units to downtown Madison. We hope this unique collaboration can serve as a catalyst for similar projects elsewhere.”
All donations to the New Tracks Capital Campaign will be recognized.
All donors will be displayed in the lobby of the new facility.
Naming opportunities within the new facility include classrooms, community room, kitchen, playground, activity rooms, parent room and more.
A donation of any size will put us closer to providing a new home for Red Caboose - giving more families access to childcare AND housing they need now.
