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.

Both of our kids got moved to next generation from other centers and it is totally worth the wait! The professionalism, quality of the programs and timely communication is top notch. My oldest girl got moved to NG ar 18 months and my younger one here at 10 months. It has been amazing to see both of them happy and learning everyday!

We can’t recommend Next Generation of Andover enough! Both our children attend NGCC and the staff is amazing. Everyone is warm and loving, professional, and truly care for your children! Our oldest has grown into a social butterfly since starting here and it’s amazing to see the transformation from when she started at 18 months. Our youngest started in the infant class and the teachers have been able to get her on a schedule which has been so helpful. We can’t recommend NGCC enough!

Although my children were only at NGCC for 5 months because we moved, we had the greatest experience you could ask for. We HIGHLY recommend NGCC to all parents. The teachers and staff are personable and professional, and it was clear they truly cared for my children's well being and happiness.

It’s very positive experience in the school for my little one, the teachers taking good care of the children. Even though my kid were crying at first as he hasn’t been to daycare very often before, he enjoyed the class in a few minutes and didn’t want to leave when I picked him up. Definitely recommend the school!
