Next Generation Children’s Centers has proudly served thousands of families throughout Massachusetts since 1993. We currently have ten preschool centers, but our location in Natick will always be special because it was the very first NGCC preschool. It features 11 specialized Infant Daycare, Toddler Daycare, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms, an indoor play space for days with inclement weather, and three large playgrounds for different age groups.

Ascend Curriculum LogoOur Ascend Curriculum allows us to balance the development of social, emotional, creative, physical, and academic skill. Our teachers help our young students work towards important developmental milestones across 9 different learning domains such as Literacy, Technology, Physical Fitness, Cultural Understanding, and Kind Child every month. Activities from our curriculum can be customized to fit the interests and current skill level of each student, which makes learning fun!

Safety & Security

We know what an enormous decision it is to leave your child in the care of others. Our pledge is to do everything in our power to ensure your childcare experience is as nurturing, healthy, and safe as possible. We have designed our preschool centers with these priorities in mind and our daycare facilities feature:

  • A full commercial kitchen – We prepare a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and three snacks daily.
  • A secured entry system – Only parents and staff members with the proper code can enter our facility.
  • A cleaning service – We wash, vacuum, and disinfect our school every night.
  • Ongoing sterilization – Our kitchen is equipped with a sanitizer that cleans equipment throughout the school day.
  • A laundry center – Our facility has a laundry room to wash and sanitize your child’s clothes, sheets, and blankets. We also wash infant bedding, clothes, and bibs daily. Each week, we wash nap time items and dirty clothes.

I have been working with children and families in the field of early childhood for over 19 years. I grew up the oldest of six children in nearby Newton. Coming from such a large family is what gave me my love of working with children. I studied early childhood education at Ashford 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 center based care, I am a mother to boy/girl twins who will be attending NGCC Natick in the toddler program!

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 am excited to begin this next chapter in my journey and can’t wait to get to know all of you as I enter your school community!

Place is a dump, the management team cares more about themselves / money than they do about your child’s education. Teachers have zero clue what they are doing and my kid comes home and just spills whatever gossip the teachers were talking about that day. They learn nothing and I pay almost my entire paycheck for my child to attend. Just look up their reports on the EEC website

My son has been going to Next Generation for about a year and we have nothing but great things to say about it! He comes home every day with such happy stories to tell about his day and he has learned so much since he started preschool. The effort the teachers put into the activities they do is incredible and we love seeing everything he does each day. We are looking forward to our daughter starting in the infant classroom in October. Since we have been able to come into the center just recently, we have been able to see more teachers. Everyone is so friendly and it is reassuring to know that we chose the right place for our children.

As a parent we are getting amazing experience the way NGCC Natick taking care of my child. He is learning a lot and also we see him doing that at home really making us happy. The food, washing clothes services are adding lots value with school quality POV.

My oldest son attended Next Generation in Natick before he started kindergarten and loved it there, he still asks to this day if he could go back! Now my younger son goes there part time and he tells me he wants to go every day. The teacher’s there have created an amazing bond with my children, they communicate well, teach my son with out of the box activities and make me feel overall comfortable!
