The Providence Preschool You Trust
The Children’s Workshop in Providence is open to children of all ages, including infants, toddlers, pre-kindergartners, and children in grade school. We offer a unique curriculum, specially designed for each of our individual age groups. We know that the parents of our students lead busy lives, and we want to help them in any way we can.
We developed the curriculum we use at The Children’s Workshop by taking cues from Rhode Island Early Learning Standards and Creative Curriculum. Studies have shown that children retain information at a higher rate when their lessons are enjoyable. Therefore, the aim of The Children’s Workshop is to keep our curriculum fun for our students. We strive to provide a warm, nurturing environment for our students, where they can feel confident in learning and trying new things. This goes hand in hand with our desire to create a strong academic foundation for all of our pupils. We want all of our students to be successful both inside the classroom and out, and the parents of our students appreciate our approach.
Our school was custom designed specifically for our students. Each of the classrooms is brightly decorated and appropriate for its intended age group. All of the classrooms also open directly onto our large outdoor playgrounds. If you are interested in an environment created specifically to build confidence and academic success in children, visit The Children’s Workshop. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have and give you a tour! Please call us at 401-383-9958 to speak directly to our staff!
Parent Communication App
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!

Preschool & Pre-K
Hi! My name is Tara and I’m the Director of our Providence location.
I began my career at TCW in May of 2010 at our Central Falls location. I started as the School Age Coordinator and in 2012-2014, I took on the Director of TCW Seekonk role. I became Assistant Director/Education Coordinator of the TCW Providence location in March of 2014, where I am now the Director.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Salve Regina University and hold an Early Childhood certificate PK-2 from the State of RI.
When I am away from TCW, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three boys. We all enjoy the outdoors and love to do things like camping, fishing and cooking out.
Give me a call so you can meet the amazing staff here and see all the wonderful activities they have planned for your children!
This place is amazing inside and out, professional teachers, director and loving atmosphere! We created unforgettable memories there! State pre-k will leave special place in my daughters heart!
My daughter has been going to TCW for the past 5 years. Her Journey started in Kindergarten and since then she has been part of the before and after school School Age Program as well as the Summer Program. The Summer Program is awesome. They always have something planned for the kids as well as field trips. They also provide transportation to and from school which is very helpful. They also remain open during school vacations and inclement weather which is extremely helpful for working family’s. The staff is also great! I feel very comfortable knowing my child is in good hands. They are all so friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. They are all supportive and willing to help in any way they can. The director Liz is the best. She is always giving her all to make the center successful and her door is always open with any questions or concerns you may have. I can honestly say that my daughter and I are blessed to be part of this great organization. Thank You for everything! -The Salley’s
I cannot say enough how amazing the teachers Ms Jenn , Ms Carolyn and the director Liz are at The Childrens Workshop. Our daughter attended the State Pre K program for the 2017-18 year and made tremendous strides with speech, math, writing, emotional and social development. They really take the time to love the children yet give them the discipline they need to become amazing little humans. Also the facility is always clean and organized and the other staff we often met were extremely friendly.
To Mrs. Liz Guido, Ms. Anna and the SA staff, You are always being protective to the kids. You put alot of effort to keep the kids safe and you are always ready to help. Especially in emergency situations you are always showing you care. Thank you.!!
My daughter has been with the Children’s Workshop for about a year. The director and staff have been so supportive in the development of my daughters education. They take the time to work with her after school on homework and any work she struggles with. They also provide transportation to and from her school which is super helpful and convenient for working families. I can’t say enough good things about The Children’s Workshop. I highly recommend giving them a call and taking a tour so you can see for yourself! Thank you TCW for being so great!
I’m very impressed with The Children’s workshop! They took the center over from the previous owner and immediately starting making positive improvements for the children and families. The staff is incredibly welcoming and the teachers are attentive, kind and energetic! I absolutely love the meal program, not only is it a time saver but it’s also helped my daughter become a better eater and she’s much more open to trying new things. The teachers send photo updates when something memorable happens, it’s so comforting and heart warming to get those while your away from your child. At the end of each day, they send a detailed report of what the child did that day, it is very helpful! I am very pleased with TCW and my daughter is excited to go “school” every day to see her teachers and friends. Highly recommended!
I can not say enough amazing things about this place! The teachers are all amazing, Andrea has done a wonderful job running things, the place is beautifully redone and so clean. I feel like they look at the kids like their own. I’m so grateful to have this place in my life.
TCW is new to Hanover and our family has been enrolled since the first day. They are still new and getting the school up and running. But are already making some great improvements. They do a great job keeping families informed and leveraging really convenient tools do it. I love getting a text when my son spends a day that lets me know what he did so I can ask him questions and keep up with his progress. The staff is so friendly and cares about each child as an individual. The meal program has been a huge help to our busy family. We don’t have to prepare meals
and he’ll be fed something healthy is a huge time saver. Really love what they’ve done in the short time they’ve been running this location and am excited to see what’s next.
I am so glad I chose the children’s workshop as my child’s daycare I cannot express enough how thankful I am for all of you that work there My daughter is so happy where she is at I can finally have my mind as ease when she is in school and so blessed I’ve finally found a place that is kind,thoughtful,loving and caring towards my daughter , I love getting pictures and updates of charlotte threw out the day my favorite is when I get a lot of pictures of what she’s doing 🙂 The teachers in [my daughter]’s room ms Sam and ms kellie are amazing teachers i love all the projects they do with the kids and how they have each day planed I like how much they adore my daughter and excepted her into there class she fits right in Thank you so much for allowing my daughter to have this learning experience I love the children’s workshop and would recommend it to anyone as the #1 daycare
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this TCW location; not only is the daycare itself just all around adorable but the staff is what truly makes this location such an amazing place and they are key to our positive experience here! The teachers have far exceeded our expectations from not only welcoming our daughter right away but even my husband & I too! From her very first day, we felt like we were part of a larger TCW family and it made us feel so comfortable that (even though we didn’t want her to leave our side!) our daughter would be here while we were at work full-time, with such caring and well-trained teachers!
Our daughter started here when she was only 3 months old and again, as brand new parents petrified to leave their first child, we were instantly given the comfort and confidence that we were hoping to find in child care by the TCW staff. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the caring and compassionate teachers in addition to the unbelievably dedicated and passionate Director Trudi and Assistant Director, Meredith.
We couldn’t be happier with TCW & are reassured every day that we made the right child care decision!
