Welcome to Next Generation Children’s Centers. I opened the first Next Generation school in Natick, Massachusetts in 1993 after searching—and not finding—a suitable daycare solution for the first of my seven grandchildren. That search made me understand the tremendous need for top-quality childcare for working parents.

Our Philosophy – The Whole Child

At Next Generation, we focus on growth and development of the Whole Child. To accomplish this, our curriculum actively engages these core concepts every day:

  • Education
  • Healthy Habits
  • Social
  • Community

We are at the forefront of educational innovation for children—from infants through Pre-K. Our rich curriculum integrates pioneering early childhood philosophies and teaching methodologies including Piaget, Montessori and Reggio Emilia.

We Are Family

Next Generation is a family-owned, Massachusetts business. We consist of hundreds of professional educators, all of whom make us an extended family for you. I am proud to say that many of our faculty and management team members have children who are enrolled in or have graduated from Next Generation. It is our privilege to offer the very best in childcare and education—from our family to yours.
