The Children’s Workshop is proud to announce one of our newest locations! We have acquired Learning Step-By-Step Day School, located in Raynham, MA. Located conveniently on Paramount Drive, we offer high-quality childcare and early education for Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and School Age and are now enrolling for each age group!
Our programs offer affordable rates, convenient hours and a great location with easy access to Route 24. In addition, we utilize a nationally recognized curriculum and an approach to education that you will see in action in all our centers. Our developmentally appropriate classrooms are warm and inviting. Within each classroom you will find distinct learning centers such as blocks, sand and water, dramatic play, library, and computers. These well-defined areas present clear activity choices to children and give them control over their time during center time. Learning materials are offered on low shelves and in labeled containers so they are easily accessible to children and they can 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 are having fun, so our programs emphasize learning through play.
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!
We invite you to visit our school! Please stop by or call to schedule an appointment at 508-823-7480. We would love to meet you and your family.
Back Up Care
Preschool & Pre-K
Nicole joined the Home Office team in 2014 as Regional Director of Operations for nine of our schools In this role she oversees the operational and financial success of our schools and works to support and train our fabulous center Directors. Prior to this position she was Director at our Westborough, Smithfield, Rumford, and Warwick schools. During her time at TCW, she has had the pleasure of presenting at both the local and national levels, including a NAEYC national conference in Atlanta, GA, as well as being part of the Modern Parent, a segment on the Rhode Show.
Nicole started working for The Children’s Workshop in August 2008 in our Warwick location where she served as Director. She is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. In addition, she has received her Early Childhood Teaching Certificate and just recently (2015) completed her Master’s Degree from Rhode Island College in the field of Early Childhood Education.
Before joining TCW Nicole was a substitute teacher in the RI Public School system. Her passion is educating both children and adults – she loves to show kids and adults alike just how much they are capable of accomplishing. Her favorite thing about working with children is that it’s a guarantee that every day is different. When she’s not at work, she has a 2 year old Lab mix named Lexi who she just adores! She also loves the beach and spending time with her family and friends. She is an avid sports fan – the New England Patriots is her favorite team and football is her favorite sport to watch!
My daughter has been attending TCW in W Bridgewater since they opened in May and we have nothing but great things to say! She’s 2 and this is her first experience in daycare. We researched many other places prior to selecting TCW. The “new-ness” was appealing but we really selected it based on the staff – very informative, knowledgeable and beyond friendly. Our daughter loves everyone there, talks about them all the time and whenever I say “how was school?” she says “great, I want to go back”. I mean what else can you ask for! She’s learned new skills in such a short of amount of time (drinking an open cup, going down a slide and interacting with other kids). And we get text/email pictures and updates throughout the day – love that!
Our daughter has been with Children’s Workshop for almost 2 months now and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. After checking many day cares in our area (some of the most expensive and some of the least expensive), I found this day care, while smaller than the bigger, more expensive ones, to have all that the bigger ones have at a much more reasonable price. Beautiful classrooms, bright colors, HUGE playground, and family activities in the summer and the day care provides all meals and snacks throughout the day.
When our child started, she was just beginning to walk and was still turning away solid food which was a minor concern for us. Within just a few weeks, she not only was walking like a pro but eating much of what was provided. This allowed me to continue on this progress at home and now we rarely ever provide baby food to her.
TCW provideS daily pictures of our child and a daily report of what she’s done. The entire staff is very professional and loving. We have no worries when we drop off our child at day care each day. I would highly recommend this day care as an option to anyone looking for an excellent day care but does not want to pay the premium price you find elsewhere.
My son has been attending TCW for about a month in the toddler room and we love it! The staff is very friendly and caring towards my son. The director Amanda is always around for questions/concerns and is very welcoming towards the parents and the children. I love the fact that they provide meals and snacks so I don’t have to stress about packing lunch. The menu they put together is awesome and healthy. The outdoor area is huge and surrounded by woods, it’s great! I can’t say enough good things about this facility, go check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
