High Quality Childcare in Rhode Island & Massachusetts

At The Children’s Workshop, our first priority is your child. And because we’re run by parents, with young children like yours, we strive every day to create warm, nurturing, environments where children can explore and learn.

Our experienced team of early childhood professionals is committed to the unique and individual development of every child in our care. Each of our teachers is a professional in the field of early childhood education and has been carefully selected through an extensive interview and orientation process. In addition, all of our teachers receive ongoing classroom support, supervision, continuing education, and extensive opportunities for professional development.

The Children's Workshop Mission & Vision

Our family is honored to nurture, teach, and inspire children, educators, families, and communities to realize their full potential and create a more compassionate world.

We Are Safe

We provide safe, clean, inclusive, and nurturing environments that support learning and development. We promote trust, respect, and dignity universally.

We Are Kind

We honor our roots as a family business and are forever grateful for the trust and relationships we build with our communities, customers, and employees. We are passionate, pay it forward, and do what is right.

We Do Our Best

We maintain a growth mindset, advocate for the highest quality early childhood education, and make decisions that balance the best interests of all stakeholders. We work hard, take chances, and go above and beyond to make a difference.

We Play To Learn

We build our curriculum upon research-based best practice, the belief that children learn best through play, and the knowledge that everyone thrives when given the opportunity to pursue their passions. We believe that fun, laughter, and love are the essentials of being a lifelong learner.

  • The Children’s Workshop is committed to providing a safe place for your children to learn and develop social skills with other children their age. However, we do not feel that only providing for safety and basic needs is enough. We create enriching programs that your children can use in their everyday lives. Our curriculum takes an active approach to creating engaging educational experiences with real life scenarios that provide emotional context.
  • We are so much more than a "day care" service that simply provides supervision for your children. Rather, we are a child care organization focused on wellness, learning, and fun. Our doors remain open year round even through inclement weather and holidays, providing back up care for parents when you need it most.
Communication_Phone
  • Along with having an iPad in every classroom, we have an extraordinary Parent Communication App that our teachers use daily to relay information and send pictures to family members, send newsletters, and track developmental progress for each child’s portfolio! With this application, parents/guardians are able to opt into email or text alerts and they can receive any information, instantaneously, about their child and their child’s school day.
  • Teachers and staff can tag daily pictures with our Developmental Domains (Social/Emotional, Physical, Artistic, Cognitive, and Language/Literacy) and are then able to communicate with the parents/guardians by adding captions or sending quick little notes.
  • Families LOVE this feature and we’re utilizing it more and more each day! We are so excited to be able to communicate with our families throughout the day and to show them what their children are learning each day.
  • For more information about our Parent Communication, please visit our Family Communication page or contact the Director of the school you are interested in learning more about!

  • We're not a large company with a cookie-cutter approach. Each of our programs is unique and designed to reflect the community it serves. We utilize The Children's Workshop Curriculum Framework, a research and evidence-based curriculum created by our education team. The framework provides enough flexibility to be tailored to your child's interests, which we know can change daily, and the needs of our families.
  • We pride ourselves on providing children and their families throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island with a high-quality child care facility for learning. We are committed to providing excellence in education for young children. We opened our first center in 1990, and we have since grown to nearly 20 learning centers. Our main objective is to ensure excellent programs, dedicated caregivers, and classrooms that are warm and inviting. We invite you to learn more about our programs and to become part of our family "where learning is child's play!"

Meet The Children's Workshop Mascot!

Webster the Puffin

Webster the Puffin!

Why a Puffin? You may ask...

Well, we find Puffins to be pretty awesome. Not only are they adorable and fun, but they are also incredibly versatile.

In fact, Puffins are all about Limitless Possibilities.

Puffins can fly, walk, swim and dive; they have no limits.

At The Children’s Workshop we believe that children also have limitless possibilities. Early education is the key to a child’s success and our goal is to provide the groundwork for all the possibilities that lay ahead.  Webster helps in that mission by inspiring our teachers and the children in our care to show off their bright colors and achieve whatever they put their minds to.

In fact, we love Puffins so much, we adopted one -
