The Providence Preschool You Trust

Why Choose TCW Providence

The Children's Workshop in Providence is open to children of all ages, including infants, toddlers, pre-kindergartners, and children in grade school. We offer a unique curriculum, specially designed for each of our individual age groups. We know that the parents of our students lead busy lives, and we want to help them in any way we can.

Our Curriculum

We developed the curriculum we use at The Children's Workshop by taking cues from Rhode Island Early Learning Standards and Creative Curriculum. Studies have shown that children retain information at a higher rate when their lessons are enjoyable. Therefore, the aim of The Children's Workshop is to keep our curriculum fun for our students. We strive to provide a warm, nurturing environment for our students, where they can feel confident in learning and trying new things. This goes hand in hand with our desire to create a strong academic foundation for all of our pupils. We want all of our students to be successful both inside the classroom and out, and the parents of our students appreciate our approach.

Our School

Our school was custom designed specifically for our students. Each of the classrooms is brightly decorated and appropriate for its intended age group. All of the classrooms also open directly onto our large outdoor playgrounds. If you are interested in an environment created specifically to build confidence and academic success in children, visit The Children's Workshop. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have and give you a tour! Please call us at 401-383-9958 to speak directly to our staff!

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.

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!

    Director Bio Image

    Hi! My name is Rob and I’m the Director of our Providence location.

    I began my career at TCW in October of 1998 at our Lincoln center. I started as a teen aide and in the summer of 1999 I became a teacher assistant in the preschool classroom. Since then I have been a lead teacher in both preschool and pre-k. I have also been the Assistant Director in our Lincoln, Smithfield, and Providence centers before being promoted to Director of Providence in May of 2014.

    When I am away from TCW I enjoy attending sporting events as well as participating is several recreational sports leagues. My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family especially my twelve nieces and nephews.

    Give me a call so you can meet the amazing staff here and see all the wonderful activities they have planned for your children.
