Welcome to Norwood
The Children's Workshop was voted Reader's Choice for Best Daycare 2012 by the Norwood Patch!
The Children's Workshop in Norwood is located in the Rama Stop Plaza. We offer high quality child care and learning for infants, toddlers and preschool. Our classrooms are big, bright, warm and welcoming and you HAVE to see our fantastic gross motor room! We've built a replica of downtown Norwood for the children to explore; they can play in the many "storefronts" and take turns acting as postmaster, shopkeeper, in our "Downtown!"
Our programs offer affordable rates, convenient hours, and a great location with easy access to Route 128 and Route 1. We are steps away from the MBTA stop, allowing our parents easy access to Boston after drop off.
We utilize The Children's Workshop Curriculum, a framework we developed that draws inspiration from the Creative Curriculum and the Early Learning Standards from several states, which you will see in action in all our centers. Children retain more when they're having fun so our programs emphasize learning through play. Our curriculum provides a strong foundation for children's academic success and our teachers provide a warm, nurturing environment in which every child can be successful. Our age appropriate classrooms are warm and inviting. Within each classroom, we have distinct interest areas consisting of blocks, table toys, art, cooking, computers, library, house corner, and outdoor play. These well-defined areas present clear activity choices to children and give them control over their time throughout the day. Play materials are on low shelves, in containers and on hooks so that they are easily reachable and children gain a sense of independence.
Parent Communication App
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.
