Kind Child

Kind Child logoKind 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

Ascend Curriculum LogoAt 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 can not say enough great things about NGCC Hopkinton. My niece and nephew have both attended daycare here, as well as close friends children. Every time I pick my niece up she can’t wait to tell me about her day and all the fun things her teachers did with her. Every song they sing, I know they’ve learned from school, and my nephew still talks about his time there when I see him. On top of how much the kids love it, I always feel welcome the moment I walk in. I’m always greeted with a smile and a friendly face! Keep up the great job Hopkinton!

We were starting our son at NGCC in Hopkinton during the beginning of COVID and had concerns about scheduling. The management was totally understanding and extremely flexible with accommodating our needs during a challenging time and making us feel comfortable. The staff is very nice and professional. I would recommend them to anyone! Mike

As a long term Hopkinton family, we have always had wonderful things to say about NGCC. The teachers are warm and welcoming and our children come home every day with stories to tell and a smile on their face. The new regulations the school is following give us a peace of mind during these times. Health and safety is of the utmost importance and the school has implemented regulations to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy but our children still leave each day with smiles on their faces and fun stories to tell about their day. The level of care has only gotten better! We are so happy that NGCC has become our second home.

My two grandchildren greet us with smiles when we pick them up and the teachers are so positive, I am a retired first grade teacher and appreciate everyone’s commitment to early childcare and learning.
