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.

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!

We love NGCC in Westford! We have 3 children there and they are all happy and flourishing! The curriculum keeps them excited about learning, and the staff takes amazing care of them. We are so grateful to be a part of the Next Generation family.

When I first walked into Next Generation, I was immediately impressed with the facilities and the program offered. Our son started there at 12 weeks old (now 2.5) and has thrived in the care of the teachers and staff. He has had some truly incredible teachers. His infant teachers, in particular, were a great source of information and reassurance for me as a new mom. When we drop our son off in the morning we are always confident that he is the best hands.

When our daughter turned a year old, she started at Next Generation. I was admittedly nervous since she had been with me 24/7 prior to this. But the incredible team at Next Generation quickly put me at ease as they cared for and nurtured our daughter just as we would have at home. She is now almost 2 1/2 and continues to thrive there. We couldn’t be more grateful for the compassionate care and enriching education provided to her. Thank you to the amazing staff at Next Generation in Westford!
