Our Preschool’s Programs

Kind Child

We nurture friendships, cultivate positive character traits, and strengthen social skills through our Kind Child culture. Kind Child is an integral part of our Ascend Curriculum and we focus on social and emotional skills every month and the development of a new character trait such as Friendship, Empathy, and a Positive Self-Image every two months. The result is a positive and supportive preschool environment where every child feels welcome.

I have been working with children and families in the field of early childhood for more than 21 years. I grew up the oldest of six children in Newton , MA. Coming from such a large family is what gave me my love of working with children. I studied early childhood education at Worcester State University and graduated with my Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education. I am director II certified through the Dept. of Early Education and Care in Massachusetts. In addition to working in the center, I am a mother to boy/girl twins who attend NGCC.

What I love most about working with children is being able to help them explore their world. I love children’s natural curiosity and wonder. I am very fortunate to get to be a part of so many lives while working alongside families. I also love getting to be a part of a larger school community and to watch children grow up while with us.

My child started attending the school age program this year on his remote learning days and we have had a wonderful experience! Caring, professional staff, nutritious meals and snacks provided, and safe covid precautions. The only thing to note is that they currently need to close at 5 for additional cleaning, but that is just a temporary consideration. This program and center has provided great piece of mind for 2 full time working parents!

I have been an employee at the Marlborough location since 2018. Everyone works together like a family. We know every child like they are our own. All of the employees will jump in and help with anything you need. It has been a blessing to be working here. After working for a few other centers in the area, I fell in love with the atmosphere and philosophy of Next Generation Childrens Center of Marlborough.

Although I had other day care centers closer to work/home, I still chose to drive some extra miles just because I loved the staff (Jen, the director and the infant/toddler class teachers). My son started in 2017 and it's been over three years and these guys are family. Even during COVID, the staff has followed very good hygiene routines inside and outside the class, temperatures taken at drop off, wearing a mask etc. I was very pleased and mentally satisfied.

My daughter has attended Next Generation Children’s Center in Marlborough through their backup care program. She’s visited the center on 6-7 occasions prior to Covid. Our experience has been wonderful during all the times she’s attended. The teachers remembered her name, some of her interests and were very welcoming each time. The school uses an app that communicates all the necessary information to parents. This is great, especially for drop in families who might need a little reassurance that their child is doing well. I also enjoy that the school provides all the food and they have even washed her clothing when they became soiled! Our experience has been positive and we look forward to utilizing the drop in care program at Next Generation next year when Covid cases are lessening.
