"I can send her there with confidence."

For all the genuine excitement they show when my daughter comes in, to the warmth and caring she can feel every day, that is why my daughter so loves going to TCW, and why I can send her there with confidence.  Thank you!

"We didn't want to move our children from the fantastic program!"

As our family was looking for a new home, we turned down a great apartment based only on the fact that it was too far from The Children’s Workshop. We didn’t want to move our children from the fantastic program they have here…and we’ve since found a home much closer to the center.

"...beyond what we had ever expected."

My girlfriend and I, as we continue to progress in our careers and house hunting, have actually had to factor in proximity to the Bourne facility because we feel that our son would be heartbroken to have to settle into a new program. The manner in which Bailey, Robin, and Cathy provide for our (and everyone else's) child, has thus far been unforgettable and beyond what we had ever expected.

"...excellent teachers that I'm extremely grateful for."

Having to leave my two-month-old son to go back to work was one of the hardest things I've done yet.  But the absolute loving care and attention {he} receives on a daily basis from his teachers at The Children's Workshop, Miss Judy and Miss Melanie, is the most rewarding.  I know good care is hard to find and The Children's Workshop has managed to find excellent teachers that I'm extremely grateful for.




"I could never thank her enough..."

This letter is long overdue! Miss Stacey has been taking care of Mila since she was 4 months old at The Children’s Workshop in Providence. When I was still so nervous to leave my fragile baby with anyone else but someone I knew. From the moment I met her I knew she was in great hands with Miss Stacey. The first 18 months of Mila’s life have been a rollercoaster ride! Mila was born with a congenital heart defect called Truncus Arteriosus which I found out at my 20 week ultrasound. Mila was also diagnosed with Deletion 22Q Syndrome about 2 months after birth. 22Q deletion is an immunodeficiency disease and children with this syndrome have many developmental delays. Mila was transferred from Woman and Infants at just a few hours old to Boston Children’s Hospital and had open heart surgery at 5 days old. She spent the first 22 days of her life at Boston Children’s Hospital. That was only the beginning!

In the first 18 months of Mila’s life, Mila has had 2 open heart surgeries, 2 cardiac catherizations, a 9 day ICU stay fighting RSV, repeated bronchiolitis episodes, many E.R. visits, a bronchoscopy, ear tubes, early intervention, physical therapy every other week, she meets regularly  with a geneticist, immunologist, pulmonologist,  etc…..It definitely has not been easy!!!  Mila is obviously not your average baby and luckily for us, Miss Stacey is not your average daycare provider!  This woman has gone above and beyond for my daughter. Miss Stacey has given Mila her breathing treatments on a daily basis, worked very closely with Mila’s physical therapist to get Mila walking( which by the way didn’t happen until she hit 22 months old), came to the ICU to visit Mila when she had RSV, etc. etc... On top of all that stuff most importantly she showed Mila lots of love and attention!

As a single mom to Mila and her 10 year old sister Asia, these past few years have been a challenge for me to hold down a full time job as a medical secretary, be a full time single mom, juggle all Mila’s doctor’s appointments & many emergency room visits  all while staying sane was very, very hard for me. Whether Miss Stacey knows it or not she would give me the push I needed when it came to Mila’s health when sometimes I just wanted to give up, Miss Stacey kept me on my toes! Miss Stacey has become almost like a 2nd mom to Mila. Because of Mila’s health, she and I have a very special bond and I very rarely left her with anyone. Miss Stacey made me feel so content that I was able to go to work and perform my job without worrying about Mila. I never once questioned anything when she was at daycare.  I did not know Miss Stacey from a hole in the wall before Mila attended TCW but she has almost become like family to us. She did not have to go out of her way like she did. I understand part of what she did was her job, but all the extra she did really should be recognized. We all work hard every day, when it is noticed it makes us better employees. Not that Miss Stacey could get any better because she is the best, but she is absolutely an asset to The Children’s Workshop! I could never thank her enough for the care she gave my Mila or the comfort she gave me! Thank you so much Miss Stacey for loving my baby the way you did and do (and we all know she loves you right back), you will always hold a special place in my heart for that!! Mila has finally transitioned to the toddler class now and we are going to miss, Miss Stacey very, very much!

"We were very critical when choosing a daycare..."

We were very critical when choosing a daycare for our baby.  But when we came across TCW there was no question.  We are very happy with our decision and can tell our LIttle {Baby} loves her daycare day.  Miss Megan & Miss Moe are wonderful!

"All of the teachers in the infant room are absolutely wonderful..."

All of the teachers in the infant room are absolutly wonderful!  You all take such good care of {my daughter} and I can't thank you enough!  I know {she} enjoys her days with you because she always smiles when seeing you and is always in a good mood when we pick her up.  You have made daycare an easy transition for a nervous, first time mom and for that I am forever grateful!  Thank you for loving our {daughter}!

"...so incredibly happy with my experience at TCW..."

Hi Heather,

In a time where people often focus on the negative, I wanted to write and let you know how impressed I am with everything Miss Tammi has done in the Toddler 2 room since she became head teacher. I've noticed all the "little things" - like posting the breakfast and lunch menus, the arts and crafts she does with the kids, the seasonal displays she creates - which all add up to big things that make a difference!! I am so incredibly happy with my experience at TCW and wouldn't change a thing. Please give a big thank you to Miss Tammi and the teachers who take such great care of Olivia and Ben each and every day.

Warm regards,

Kate Medeiros

"...it has a real community feel to it."

My son has been at TCW since he was ten weeks old (he is 14 months now).  I remember the difficulty in searching for a daycare where you would trust leaving your child and which would meet all your concerns and expectations.  TCW has not only met my son’s needs but has exceeded my husband’s and my expectations.  The facility is always clean and organized.  It’s more than just child care it has a real community feel to it.  You can tell that the people working there are devoted to the children and enjoy what they are doing as opposed to showing up to a job to get paid.  I like the fact that the staff is always detail oriented and that I can trust they will implement whatever plan I’d like for my son with respect to napping and dietary needs.  The staff is sensitive to the fact that although they may have cared for thousands of children I’m the mom and may have specific wishes for how my child is raised.  That was very important to me as a first time mom.  Also, the daily report they send home provides me with an outline of how my son’s day was.  They say it takes a village to raise a child (particularly in a world where most parents both work) and TCW has been awesome in assisting in caring for my son .

When we were searching for a daycare we toured more places than I’d like to admit but we have never regretted choosing TCW.

"The kids love coming here..."

Our children have been in all classrooms infant through pre-K at Smithfield, and we have been so pleased with the care that they have received in each stage.  They are learning more than we ever could have imagined, and all in a nurturing and caring environment.  The kids love coming here, and we love how dedicated the staff is to their development.  They truly go a step beyond in terms of the programs and services that they provide to their families.
