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.

My son Ayden loves coming to school! His teacher’s Ms. Tara and Ms. Kathy make coming to school so easy because he loves them! My baby has been coming home talking about colors, shapes and he talks to me in sentences! He’s learning so much and I’m so happy he growing here at Next Gen!

So far, I'm really impressed with NGCC in Natick. My family and I moved to Natick from Washington state mid-pandemic and childcare was a big concern for us. We both work full time, so we needed to find somewhere close to us that was open but with very strong safety procedures, where our daughter would thrive. It's tough not being able to visit a facility before committing, but we were given a wonderful virtual tour and had all of our questions answered before we moved. Our daughter started out in the infant classroom - which she absolutely LOVED - and she had the best teachers. It was a bummer to not be able to meet them face to face but we felt like we got to know them through the NGCC app, where they'd post pictures with captions and update us on her day. A month and a half later, she's now in the toddler class, which she loves even more than the infant class (which is hard to believe), and I can see how much she's learning everyday. I still love getting the updates from her wonderful and energetic teachers throughout the day and I can tell they care about her from the types of photos they send and types of updates they give. I feel comfortable reaching out to her teachers, the director, and the rest of the folks who run the center - I know they'll get back to me quickly. I truly believe they care about my daughter and that just warms my heart and makes me feel like I made the right decision.

my child is enrolled in the preschool program at NGCC Natick and I couldnt be more happy about the curriculum he is exposed to daily. It makes me feel very connected and safe to look at the daily updates the teachers post on KidReports and I love to see what my son and his friends are up to. I will definitely recommend enrollment here as the staff (directors, teachers, and support) are all very friendly, helpful, and caring. Thank you all!
