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.

Our son joined NGCC in Westford in February 2020 and has loved every moment there. We love seeing the connections he has made with his classmates and the staff. Whenever we pick him up, we can tell how happy he is and it's amazing to see the care of the teachers for him every time we talk to them about his day. Some days, he doesn't want to leave! They provide updates and even pictures throughout the day, which we love. We unfortunately are leaving due to housing relocation and wish we could stay! Debbie, Kim and the rest of the staff are so responsive to e-mails and phone calls, even if it's just checking in on our son to see how his day is going. We can see how much they care for all their students at NGCC. We HIGHLY recommend anyone looking into NGCC for their child(ren)! Thank you NGCC for the dedication and love you gave to our son.

My son has attended NGCC for over two years and in that time the teachers and staff have been nothing but amazing. The care that they all put into all facets of education are apparent every day I go in and that’s reflected at drop-off and pick-up and the fact that he runs into school every morning and then wants to stay at the end of the day to learn and play even more. The environment is warm and inviting and his mother and I are happy we’ve been so lucky to have found this school. If given the choice again, I would not hesitate to repeat! I definitely recommend Next Generation.

My son started at Next Generation September 2020 and the management and teachers have been fantastic. The staff have always been very helpful and provide great care for all the kids. My son loves the days he goes and Next Generation does an amazing job keeping the kids learning and socializing while staying safe in a difficult time of the pandemic.

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.
