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.

Next generation childrens center- franklin has been such a help to me because I never feel like I am questioning where my child is and how she is being taken care of. Her teachers aubrie and Monica and Lauren are amazing and help me so much with helping my daughter reach her goals. I could not thank them more for helping, teaching and supporting my little girl when she needs it the most. She is happy every day being there and that is shown through every picture on the app.

Our kids have been at NGCC Franklin since they were eligible at 3 months. (going on year 4). Everyone from the front office staff, culinary, teacher's aids and of course the teachers is excellent. It's obvious that everyone here takes great pride in taking care and teaching kids. The communication is upfront and timely. Their management during COVID has been fantastic - limited exposure if any at all, no shutdowns and really flexible in how they deal with the kids. I cannot say enough good things about NGCC Franklin.

We are so happy with Next Generation-Franklin. We've been sending our kids for over 5 years They are learning and thriving. The administrators are friendly and informative. The teachers are so amazing, loving and caring. We chose to send our oldest to their new Kindergarten program and we have been so happy. Both kids have remained healthy and I have the highest confidence that the school is kept clean and they care for all people that enter the school. It's a happy place and you're children will love it!

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.
