Our Philosophy

We believe in the development of the “Whole Child.” At NGCC Walpole’s all-day preschool, we want every child to be successful academically and to be comfortable with who they are within their community. We focus on areas of growth, including:

  1. Social
  2. Emotional
  3. Physical
  4. Cognitive

We believe that children learn best through hands-on activities and we offer plenty of diverse indoor and outdoor learning experiences that engage your child through play. Our early childhood center’s “Whole Child” approach helps your child develop self-esteem and a love of learning. As such, our preschool programs are developed from your child’s interests and abilities, so your child learns as they play.

Our Childcare & Preschool Programs:

  • Infant Childcare (6 weeks – 15 months) – A childcare program that ensures the transition away from home is smooth and joyful experience.
  • Toddler Daycare (15 months – 36 months) – As part of our Toddler Daycare program, our skilled teachers help engage young explorers with an interactive, hands-on curriculum.
  • Preschool (3 – 4 years) – Preschool is an exciting stage in a child’s development. This preschool program is focused on thoroughly preparing students for Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (4 – 5 years) – Our experienced Pre-Kindergarten teachers help lead a well-designed preschool curriculum designed to lay the foundation for success in learning.
  • Kindergarten Club (4 – 5 years) – This program takes place during the last year of preschool and is available to help students feel more comfortable with their transition into Kindergarten.
  • Summer Program (5 – 8 years) – Each summer we offer a safe, fun and educational summer program with an exciting new theme.
