The Children's Workshop's Mentoring Program is gaining momentum! We are very excited to launch our program this fall in the Central Falls school system. We...
The Children's Workshop in North Attleboro is located on Route 152, not far outside Plainville center. We offer high quality child care and learning for infants, toddlers, preschool and kindergarten and coming soon - school age! Our programs offer affordable rates, convenient hours, and a great location with easy access to Route 95.
At The Children's Workshop in North Attleboro, we utilize the "Creative Curriculum", a nationally recognized curriculum and approach to education that you will see in action in all our centers. Our age appropriate classrooms are warm and inviting. Within each classroom, we have distinct interest areas consisting of blocks, table toys, art, cooking, computers, library, house corner, and outdoor play. These well-defined areas present clear activity choices to children and give them control over their time throughout the day. Play materials are on low shelves, in containers and on hooks so that they are easily reachable and children gain a sense of independence.
Our curriculum provides a strong foundation for children's academic success and our teachers provide a warm, nurturing environment in which every child can be successful. Children retain more when they're having fun, so our programs emphasize learning through play.
We are proud to be a NAEYC accredited program!
We invite you to visit our center! Please stop by or call to schedule an appointment at 508-643-3458. We'd love to meet you and your child.

Hi! My name is Catherine and I am the director of the amazing Children's Workshop located in North Attleboro, Massachusetts!
I began working for The Children's Workshop in August 2010. My roots are from Scituate, MA where I was born and grew up. I later attended the University of Rochester, in Rochester, NY and received a degree in Geology and Secondary Education as well as a teaching certificate in Earth Science/General Science. After teaching high school I wanted to broaden my field knowledge in education so I returned to school and continued studies in Early Childhood Education at St. Petersburg College in Clearwater, FL. I have been working in the field of Early Childhood Education since 1990, and have had the pleasure of being the Director of several separate centers. My most recent experience before coming to work for The Children's Workshop was directing a center in Millis, MA for ten years.
I enjoy working with children of every age and watching them learn and grow. My favorite part of any day is when a child tells me, "You know what Miss Catherine...." When I retire I will publish the best seller entitled "Famous Quotes of Amazing Children." When I am not at The Children's Workshop I am spending time with my two children, Keegan and Macy. We enjoy spending time outdoors, with family, and at the beach.
Please stop by and visit our beautiful North Attleboro location - our teachers are the best around and we cannot wait to welcome you to the TCW family!
My daugther has made leaps and bounds over the last 9 months or so with her academic skills
My daughter Caroline is 4 years old and attends The Children’s Workshop in North Attleboro. I want you to know how pleased I am with TCW North Attleboro. As a parent, childcare is the most important decision to make. As a single, working mother, I feel that it takes on even more importance.
Caroline has been in home daycares and I initially resisted the idea of a childcare center. I feared that she wouldn’t have the emotional connection with her teachers as she did with her home daycare provider. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Caroline and I have both connected with the staff at TCW and I know that she is comfortable and well cared for when she’s there. I love when I pick her up and see that someone has braided her hair or, on special days, painted her face. There have been days when Caroline has tripped or fallen on the playground and tells me that she sat with Miss so-and-so who hugged her until it stopped hurting. When I pick her up at night, there are always hugs from her teachers before we can leave. I feel very fortunate that she has had teachers who work in child care because that’s what they love to do, not because it’s a convenient fit with their lifestyle (namely Miss Liz and Miss Pam). Caroline recently moved from Miss Liz’s pre-k room to Miss Pam’s advanced pre-k room. Although we were both sad for her to leave Miss Liz, there is an equally strong connection with Miss Pam and I’m extremely happy with both rooms.
Aside from the “care” aspect of TCW, Caroline has made leaps and bounds over the last 9 months or so with her academic skills. She can write her name, all the letters of the alphabet, she can count in Spanish, she looks for patterns in everything, she loves finding rhyming words. I know that these skills have been developed through the teachers at TCW, and I am grateful.
From an administrative perspective, I have also been very pleased. Elise is always available for my questions, comments or concerns. There was a point last spring when Caroline resisted going to school for a few days. I called Elise to discuss the situation. She spoke to Caroline’s teacher and within 10 minutes of my initial call to Elise, I had a call back from her with a cause (one of Caroline’s friends had moved from preschool to pre-k) and a solution (she started Caroline’s transition to pre-k).
In an ideal world, I’d be able to stay home with my child every day. In the real world, that’s not an option for me and I have to work full-time. Knowing that Caroline is in a nurturing, caring and loving environment in which she can grow and learn allows me to provide for my daughter with a clear mind. As Caroline begins kindergarten in North Attleboro in September, I am thrilled that she will be able to remain at The Children’s Workshop for before and after school care.Kelly
