When I was growing up, I was always taking care of the younger kids in the family. Later, I went to boarding school, where I also helped care for the kids in younger grades-so I was really drawn to children right away!

After I graduated from school, I taught second grade and worked as a social worker with low-income, at risk youth in India. Then, I had two children of my own, and I wanted to make sure they received a high-quality education. I also wanted to keep working in child care, so I decided I could achieve both goals by opening my own program in my home. It was a great decision-I love teaching the children in my program and supporting local families.

I feel very lucky that I was able to discover my passion at such a young age and dedicate my entire life to working with young children! Being around kids motivates me to work harder every day. No other job can give you that.

We have daily schedules and goals. We do circle time, arts and crafts, writing, songs-and we love playing outside. As a teacher, integrating education into our days is very important to me, so I'm always working in different learning opportunities. For example, we do science experiments (like getting caterpillars and watching them transform into butterflies!), and I like to incorporate different languages into our lessons and songs to celebrate other cultures.

My favorite activity is actually doing puzzles with the children. It's fun, educational, practices hand-eye coordination, and is a great opportunity to be on their level and connect with them. Of course, circle time is also special, when I get to know each one of them personally.

I think parents often have the idea that a high-quality child care program has to have a lot of fancy equipment. But the value of the program is really in the educators themselves. I am a professional teacher, and I draw on decades of experience when running my program. There's a lot that goes into teaching and child care that isn't always obvious at first glance, and it definitely isn't as simple as having the latest toys or technology.

"The Great Summer Adventure!" Our summer preschool program runs from July 7 - Aug 15, MWF 9-11am. Registration is flexible: you may register for one week or 6 weeks - one day a week, or all three! Reserve your child's spot by May 16!

For the past 40 years, The Professional Center for Child Development's mission has been to provide therapeutic and educational services for children of all abilities and their families, working with each child to develop to his or her full potential. We strive to eliminate barriers to growth and development for children with disabilities and families coping with health issues and challenges.

Our Two by Three Preschool experience for ages 3 to 5 years focuses on the child's social and emotional development by fostering independence, self-reliance and positive self-esteem using a developmental curriculum. We have small classes with a teacher/child ratio of 1:3. We offer a rolling enrollment for children of all abilities. We find that integrated classrooms allow children to gain a greater acceptance for one another's differences and abilities. Our Two by Three Preschool sets children on a path for future educational success. Classes meet 9:00 -11:45 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We also offer a flexible 6 week summer preschool program.

Our Saturday "Play Pals" group is designed for 3-5 year old children who would benefit from a small group setting for developing important speech-language and social skills using play-based therapy. Play Pals meet on Saturday mornings from 10:00-11:30.

We also offer Two by Two Toddler groups for an integrated toddler experience. Our playgroups for 2 and 3 year olds focus on play and positive social interactions. Children strengthen their sense of independence, preparing them for their future preschool experience. We have a flexible & ongoing enrollment with groups running throughout the year. Morning, afternoon, and summer sessions available.

Our Developmental Day School provides a comprehensive educational and therapeutic program for children ages 3-10 who have multiple disabilities, moderate to severe developmental delay, complex care needs or medical needs. As the Agency's original and longest running program, the school has been in existence since our opening in 1973.

Next Generation Children's Centers - Andover

516 S. Main St., Andover, MA

Next Generation Children's Centers - Andover is much more than just daycare. We offer infant, toddler, preschool and child care programs with a curriculum that prepares children to thrive in their next stage of development, including kindergarten readiness.

Our small group environments in each classroom enable teachers to tailor the learning to each child's skill level and provide them individualized attention so they're prepared for their next milestone. We do this through a Primary Care Group approach where each teacher works with small groups of children at a time, so no child is ever without a teacher to guide them.

Our approach to learning is play-based because we know children learn better while they're having fun, engaged and interested. We give them plenty of time throughout each day to play, explore, and enjoy physical activities.

Our school management team, teachers and other staff have early childhood care and development experience, and they really enjoy teaching and nurturing the children in our care!

We also focus on developing and nurturing important character traits and social skills through our age-appropriate "Kind Child" approach.

Families are a very important part of our school and we encourage a strong parent-teacher-child connection. We do this through many classroom activities and events designed specifically for parents and children to participate together.

Open and ongoing communication with our families is important, and the most effective way we do this with parents is face-to-face whenever they drop-off their children in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon. We have an open-door policy, so you're welcomed to come in or call to chat about whatever is on your mind at any time.

We're very picky about our menu choices, so children receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks every day that are included in tuition.

We provide parents peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home!

Please contact us to schedule a visit, meet our caring and nurturing team, and see for yourself how our school is a very special place for your child to learn and grow.
