Rhode Island & Massachusetts Preschool

Thinking, discovering and creating – Preschool and Pre-K children are active learners, full of questions and enthusiasm for acquiring new information and skills.

They are capable of expressing their feelings and needs in many ways through art, science, music, dramatic play, and construction. At The Children’s Workshop, we want to encourage this kind of interactive learning while building a solid foundation for continued education.

We build on your children’s Natural Desire to learn

Summer2018

Our Preschool and Pre-K programs provide many opportunities for children to meet with success on a daily basis. Preschool and Pre-K are important steps in preparing for kindergarten, and our programs support children’s natural curiosity, enthusiasm, and optimism for learning and new experiences. Our goal is to provide a warm environment where children develop a strong sense of confidence and self-esteem. We help children to become independent, self confident and inquisitive learners. Children at this age are very observant and pay close attention to details. They enjoy being challenged and are very proud of their accomplishments. Our curriculum is designed to work with the natural inclinations of preschool children to foster learning through creative play.

The key characteristics of our Preschool curriculum include:

Our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms contain age-appropriate materials geared towards building a foundation for a lifetime of learning. Students gain the basis for math and reading readiness from activities like circle time, building with blocks, dramatic play, art, and music. We also allow for plenty of gross motor play and outdoor activities. Our focus on small group activities and individual learning experiences combine to allow for positive social interaction with peers as well as connections with our staff.

At The Children’s Workshop, we want all children to have the best early education experience and develop a lifelong love of learning. Contact us today to begin the process of enrolling your child in our excellent program!

  • 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!"
