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!

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!
My daughter started in June 2018 when she turned 3, and she has already learned her months and recognizes letters of her name. She is in preschool and we love her teacher Ms. Raidiris!! They have many activities for our daughter. I do wish the parking lot was bigger! my daughter wishes the playground had a slide and climbing wall, so i make sure we visit the playground by our home. Everyone is very welcoming, and they always make sure any questions i have are answered.
love this place and what they stand for! My son’s teachers have gone above and beyond what is expected of them to make him feel comfortable regardless of the fact he only attends a couple of times per week. I highly recommend “The Children’s Workshop” to anyone looking for a safe and nurturing daycare provider 🙂 A++
We have really loved CW and so have our sons. It has been great to watch them grow there under such great teachers. Also, they really work with working parents- they have good hours and rarely close due to the weather.
I honestly recommend this place to all my friends and family. I am so happy with the progress my daughter has made here at The Children’s Workshop in Providence. The teachers are all welcoming and friendly and it genuinely feels like a family. They treat my daughter as if she is one of their own. I enjoy getting pictures and reports of what my daughter has done throughout the day and week, what new things she has learned and what projects they have done. If your looking for a safe and wonderful place for your child to learn and grow I recommend them. This will be my daughters last year here and I know we’ll be sad to leave them.
