Next Generation Children’s Centers have proudly served thousands of families throughout Massachusetts since we opened our first preschool in 1993. Our Andover center was opened in 2001 and has 19 spacious classrooms, a commercial kitchen, two indoor gym spaces, a covered outdoor play area, and two large outdoor playgrounds that were all created to accommodate the varying needs of different age groups.

Kind Child Program

We believe that children learn to be kind, giving, and thoughtful of others when they experience these traits firsthand. Kind Child is the foundation of our school’s culture and an important part of our Ascend Curriculum. We focus on the the development of social and emotional skills each month and a character trait like Responsibility, Thankfulness, and Friendship every two months. Our goal is to elevate the emotional well-being of each child in our care and strengthen friendships!

Safety & Security

We know what an enormous decision it is to leave your child in the care of others. We pledge to do everything in our power to make our preschool as healthy, safe, and secure as possible, and we designed our schools with these priorities top of mind. Our childcare center has:

  • A secured entry system. Only parents and staff members with the proper code can enter our daycare facility.
  • Heated floors. Our infant classrooms have heated floors.
  • Full commercial kitchen. We prepare a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and three snacks daily. We use only the best quality foods and employ ServSafe® certified cooks to prepare our meals.
  • A cleaning service. A professional cleaning service washes, vacuums, and disinfects our school each night so that we can continually maintain a high level of cleanliness.
  • A laundry center. We have a laundry room to wash and sanitize your child’s clothes, sheets, and blankets.

I have been a proud part of the Next Generation family since 2013 and I joined the Andover management team in July 2015. I have worked with all age groups from infants to 8th graders. I have a dual Bachelor’s Degree from SUNY Geneseo in Special Education and Elementary Education. I also have a dual Master’s Degree in Literacy and Early Childhood Education. My son will be joining the NGCC infant program this spring.

My wife and I believe pre school improves children’s social and emotional skills and prepares for elementary school. NGCC exceeded our expectations on all fronts. Amazing facilities, clean and modern classrooms, excellent dietary schedule. Entertaining and educational daily activities. NGCC uses technology to the fullest. On our phones we received multiple updates throughout the day, including pictures. And most importantly outstanding management and staff. Everybody that we met were passionate about their roles. Classroom teachers were skilled, loving and caring. Management was timely and clear in communication and managed pandemic circumstances very professionally. Thanks to NGCC our son had a smooth transition to elementary school. Our next little one can’t wait to attend NGCC next year. Thanks to everyone for being awesome.

We have been so happy with the care at NGCC Andover. My kids looked forward to going “to school” each day, and always had so much fun with their teachers and classmates. The Pre-K program has more than adequately prepared them for kindergarten. We will miss NGCC!

Our daughter, who is now 4, has been attending NGCC Andover since she was 3 months old and our son just started there this winter. Our daughter has loved every one of her teachers so much and we have been very happy with all her experiences there. Sending your child(ren) to daycare during the pandemic was difficult, but NGCC did everything they could to keep our kids safe, happy and healthy and we very communicative of changes in policy throughout.

We've been at Next Gen for three years now since our oldest was 3 months old. It is a fantastic organization! The teachers are amazing, and we always take comfort in knowing that our kids are being cared for. The staff is attentive and knows each child and family on an individualized basis. We feel very fortunate, and would highly recommend Next Gen.
