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.
  • Summer Program (5 – 7 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.

Our sons have been going to NGCC since mid-2020 and they adore their friends and teachers there! The teachers and management are all wonderful and have been incredibly supportive and communicative throughout the pandemic. The teachers build in loads time for play, art, outdoor time as well as more academic topics, and have prepared our eldest incredibly well for his upcoming transition to kindergarten. We really love how warm and welcoming NGCC is to all families. Both our children have really thrived at NGCC!

We have been sending our kids to NGCC since 2017. We are very happy with the teachers and staffs there. They are professional and take good care of the kids. My both sons enjoy their time there and I can see them progressing constantly. My elder son was well prepared for kindergarten when he graduated last year. He still wants to come back to see his teachers when he got chance to pick up his brother with me😀. We highly recommend NGCC as childcare option.

My daughter has been going to NGCC since she was 18 months. We have had a great experience and love it there. The teachers are top notch and genuinely care about the kids. The Center overall operates at a high standard and is very clean and organized, communication is great. Other pros include high quality food provided and an app that they update throughout the day with photos and details about the children’s activities, naps, meals, etc. I never have to worry about my daughter at next gen- I know she’s well taken care of and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for daycare!

Regular communication via email on events, holidays and etc. On site kitchen providing lunch and 2 snacks were such a great bonus to have! Facility is clean and organize.
