Kind Child is an important part of our Ascend Curriculum and we see kindness as the cornerstone of our preschool’s culture. The goal of Kind Child is to continually improve the emotional well-being of each child in our care. We focus on the development of social-emotional skills every month and introduce character traits such as Thankfulness, a Positive Self-Image, and Friendship every two months. We want every child to feel welcome and supported at our preschool and Kind Child programming encourages both students and staff to make kindness a habit.
Our Educational Philosophy
At Next Generation Children’s Centers, we recognize that young children need much more than academic development during these precious first years of life and our Ascend Curriculum allows us to take a balanced approach to early childhood education. We want every child to be successful academically, but we also focus on social, emotional, creative, and physical development at our school.
Our approach helps your child develop self-esteem and a lifelong love of learning. We believe that children learn best through hands-on activities and we offer various indoor and outdoor learning experiences that engage your child through play. Our activities are developed from your child’s interests and abilities, so they enjoy every minute of learning.

I joined NGCC in 2008 and I’m thrilled to work with such an incredibly caring team here at Hopkinton. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with our families, especially those new to childcare. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Wheelock College and I’m Director II certified by the Department of Early Education and Care. I have 3 children who attended our Hopkinton and Franklin schools.
