Infants

You want the best for your baby and so do we.

We appreciate how very important these early years are in your child’s development. At this very early stage, babies show an incredible sense of curiosity to explore the world around them. We support this discovery through music, colors, and many age appropriate toys. We create an environment that is full of love and caring to ensure that your baby feels secure to explore and gets lots of attention.

Current research shows that when we give very young children warm and responsive care – at home and at child care – we help shape their future development and ability to learn. The Children’s Workshop’s teachers are trained in infant development and know how to provide the love and nurturing that infants need. In our Infant program, there is no predetermined group schedule, but rather a relaxed pace which is based on the individual needs and emerging abilities of the children. Teachers take their cues from the children when planning daily activities.

  • 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.

  • 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!"
