Next Generation Children’s Centers (NGCC), which has 10 preschools locations across Massachusetts, has proudly provided childcare for thousands of families over the past 25 years. Our childcare center in Franklin, Massachusetts first opened its doors in 1998 and went through a renovation in 2012.

Our state-of-the-art preschool campus features 16 classrooms, a commercial kitchen, two indoor play spaces, a covered outdoor play area, and two large playgrounds that appeal to varying age groups.

Nurturing the Whole Child

To succeed, a child needs not only solid academic skills but also a positive sense of self and a feeling of community. NGCC Franklin makes every effort to create a caring, nurturing environment that supports healthy choices and the emotional well-being of every child.

At NGCC, we focus on growth and development of the “Whole Child.” Our preschool curriculum actively engages the following core concepts every day:

  1. Education
  2. Social Skills
  3. Healthy Habits
  4. Community Connections

We work with you so that your child will develop a love of learning and build their self-esteem. We believe that children learn best through hands-on activities and our teachers provide your child with the materials, freedom, and support to learn at their own pace. Activities at our childcare center and daycare are developed from your child’s interests and abilities so that your they love every minute of learning.

Our Child Care Facilities

At NGCC, we understand how hectic family life can be; we are parents, too. As such, our child care facilities are designed with working parents in mind. Our goal is to help you enjoy peace of mind knowing that your children are safe and sound in a place as comforting as home. We do everything in our power to make our preschool as healthy, secure, and accommodating as possible. Our child care facility has:

  • A 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 the meals.
  • A cleaning service – Our facility is washed, vacuumed, and disinfected every night.
  • A secured entry system and closed circuit monitoring of the playgrounds and common spaces.
  • Consumer Product Safety Commission guideline compliant playgrounds.
  • A laundry center – We wash and sanitize your child’s clothes, sheets, and blankets.

We love NGCC Franklin! I was hesitant to bring my daughter to a daycare center and now I can say that it was the absolute best decision that we ever made. All the teachers are kind, caring and nurturing. It amazes me that every staff member knows each child's name. I completely trust NGCC and would recommend it to anyone! Update 11/12/20- I could not be more pleased with the cleaning and sanitization process that NGCC is completing during COVID. They are practicing all the guidelines and protocols and I feel extremely safe sending my daughter there each day. It is so refreshing to have one less worry during these uncertain times.

Being a first time mom while simultaneously going through a global pandemic, I was met with a lot of overwhelming stress and hesitance in allowing my baby to be in someone else’s care other than my own. Since she has started at Next Generation, my worries have drastically subsided, as the teachers and management have made me feel confident she’s getting the best care and education possible. The KidsReport app is such a comforting tool they offer, it allows me to get live updates on her day, as well as photographs, which is just amazing to me. I would highly recommend this center to any and all other families who might be looking for a quality program!

Since the pandemic, there have been many restrictions to protect the children, parents, employees and general public from the spread of this deplorable virus. The staff at Next Generation led by their director Laurie Christiansen have done an outstanding job following the Massachusetts guidelines. They all show compassion and dedicated to making my child and my family feel safe. My daughter has been at the school for 5 years and I cant say enough. Have there been some hiccups along the way, of course, but without doubt, this school and its curriculum are second to none. She is now almost 5 and prepared to move on to the next step and I credit the incredible job this school has done. As I write this, I know in my heart that the months hours and days my wife and I are busy at work, we never had to worry about her care. Kudos to the teachers who are the parents when the parents are making life a better place… you help mold my little girl and I am truly grateful. Mr. & Mrs. G

I began working at NGCC in Franklin in August of 2020. I have been in the child care field since 1984 and have taught in multiple centers. There are not many centers that will welcome someone with open arms and make them feel like family, NGCC Franklin has done this and in all my years of experience I have only had the feeling of belonging to a family one other time. Due to Covid 19 there have been updates to health and safety within the child care centers, NGCC Franklin takes this seriously and makes sure that classrooms, restrooms, and playgrounds are sanitized throughout the day. When walking through the hallways you can hear and see that the children are engaged in learning and are having fun. I am so glad that I am a part of NGCC Franklin.
