Next Generation Children’s Center (NGCC) Westford, which opened its doors in 1996, was the second of ten NGCC private preschools opened across Massachusetts. The family of preschool learning centers was established after the founder was unable to find suitable childcare for her first grandchild.

NGCC’s Westford day care center features:

  • An Infants and Young Toddlers building, which includes an indoor play area, two outdoor playgrounds, and a covered outdoor play space.
  • A newly-refurbished main building, where we provide care for Older Toddlers through Pre-Kindergarten.
  • Indoor play spaces for gross motor development and age appropriate outdoor playgrounds.
  • A commercial kitchen, where we prepare breakfast, lunch, and three healthy snacks daily.
  • A laundry center, where we wash and sanitize your child’s clothes, sheets, and blankets.

Other Day Care Programs Offered:

  • Infant Childcare (6 weeks – 15 months) – A daycare program designed to maintain the strong bonds, warmth, and security your child enjoys with you at home.
  • Toddler (15 months – 36 months) – Professional caregivers guide your toddlers through a curriculum of cognitive, social, and physical growth.
  • Preschoo(3 – 4 years) – A preschool curriculum carefully designed to jump start a lifetime of learning and achievement.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (4 – 5 years) – This Pre-Kindergarten program combines the skills and experiences taught in previous years to prepare students for the transition to Kindergarten.
  • Kindergarten Club (4 – 5 years) – Our Kindergarten Club takes place during the last year of preschool and is available to help students become more at ease with their journey into Kindergarten.
  • School-Age Program – be sure to ask about our new school age programs coming soon!
  • Summer Program (5 – 6 years) – We offer an exciting, safe, fun and educational summer program with a new theme each year!

I am proud to have called NGCC Westford my home since 1998. I currently oversee the Infant/Toddler building and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with our new families, especially those who are new to childcare and looking for guidance in this important choice. I have an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Northern Essex and I’m currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree. I am Director II certified by the Department of Early Education and Care. My two NGCC graduates have special memories of their time in here at Westford.

Jax attended PreK at Next Generations during the pandemic. It was a difficult year with health safety and being new to Westford. They were on top of all the guidelines and communicated everything with the families. The school made Jax so happy. He always came home with a huge smile on his face. The directors were such a pleasure to work with and the teachers adored my son. We are going to miss this school. He’s my youngest so I don’t have anymore little children but I would definitely recommend this school to my neighbors and others around the area.

I have a 2 and 5 year old at NGCC. My 5 year old is about ready to graduate Pre-K and has been at NGCC since he was 3 months old. My 2 year old has been there since he was 2 months old. We have had an absolutely wonderful experience at NGCC. The staff and teachers are simply incredible. We all love our children...and I was so nervous about finding good childcare...I truly feel like my children are loved and well cared for - like I can take a breath and know my kids are in excellent hands. One specific thing to point out, I'm VERY impressed with the NGCC curriculum and their commitment to inclusion. It's a very welcoming environment...and for families of color, LGBT families...all kinds of can know that your children and family will be supported. I really cannot say enough about how great the staff and teachers are...highly recommend.

Our family joined the NGCC family 6 years ago and could not be happier with our experience. Both of my kids received high quality pre-kindergarten education along with compassionate care. Classrooms were well equipped to provide developmentally appropriate (and fun) education and play and their teachers truly cared. From babyhood to pre-k, my children enjoyed their experience at NGCC and we felt reassured as parents that our children were well cared for every day.

We send both our boys to NGCC- Kim, Debbie, the teachers...everyone is great. The boys have made friends, are consistently learning and always look forward to school days. Communication between the school and parents has always been really good and they’ve managed all things covid related incredibly well. We couldn’t ask for more all things considered. Would definitely recommend!
