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.

Our boys have grown up at NGCC and our time with them is sadly coming to an end. If you are looking for a childcare facility with dedicated, engaging, passionate staff, look no further. We will miss each and every teacher, and staff member we have encountered over our past 6 years at NGCC!

Next Generation has been a breath of fresh air such an amazing experience from the start. The staff are so welcoming, the management team is so knowledgeable, kind, resourceful, and it is evident that they truly support their team. I would recommend next generation to any and all of my family and friends.

I have been with NGCC since May, and I have absolutely loved my time working here. I started out as a teaching Assitant getting to learn under some of the best teachers for all age groups, and meet some amazing children. The management team has been truly wonderful, as they care so much about their staff, we like to consider ourselves a family and I truly see and believe that to be 100% absolutely true. From the care and love I have seen so many teachers and teaching assistants give to children, to management and staff supporting and being there for each other it’s beyond every expectation I had going into childcare. The curriculum is thorough and provides holistic development for every child. Meaning we care just as much as their educational journey as their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing. As well as outstanding safety protocols, and ability to individualize the education and care for each child in the classrooms. I am now a teacher in a young preschool classroom, I feel like I found my niche, and couldn’t be happier with where I am and who I work with. Parents are wonderful and always understanding and patient. Management is always there for us and for our students whenever we need them. I have grown so much myself just by learning from other teachers, and having amazing role models in the management team to go to and look up to. I highly recommend coming to check out NGCC as a parent who wants exceptional care for their children, or as a teacher or Assitant who wants a caring work environment thats focused on the children in its care, has fun while doing it, and staff who truly enjoy their jobs and love making an impact on tiny humans. I’ve made some amazing friends through NGCC and the impact you make on these kids is a feeling I will never forget and will always hold on to. There’s no where and no other care like what you will get at NGCC!

I have worked here for the last year and a half. Not only is Next Generation Children’s Center the best school in the Andover area, but they are one of the top Next Generation schools across the entire country. Keep in mind there are thousands of Next Generation Children’s Center in the US. Additionally, I have never felt more respected and supported at a job before in my life. The staff is supportive of mental health days, asking for raises, and any accommodations for school. The teachers are happy and supported which means they can focus their efforts on aiding the children. Simply put, this place is wonderful. I highly recommend any parent or any teacher to check out Next Generations Children Center in Andover.
