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.

Next Gen has been tremendously responsive and accommodating to our infant with severe allergies. The child care center went as far as giving our son his own height chair and dairy/nut/egg free meals! We also have two older twins in pre-k who love it as well! Highly recommended!

Our family absolutely loves everything about NGCC! We’ve been with the center for the past 2 years, my daughter started at age 3 and my son at 4 months. After attending other daycare centers in the area, NGCC blew us away with their communication, care for the children, cleanliness of the center and overall above and beyond attitudes for every aspect of care. We’ve recommended this center to several friends who are now attending and will continue to recommend this center and it’s staff. I’m so thankful for everyone at NGCC.
