Why Choose TCW Rumford

The Children's Workshop in Rumford offers high quality child care and early learning for toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten, and school age children. Our school age buses and vans provide transportation to and from both the Pawtucket and East Providence public schools, as well as both private and charter schools in the area. No matter where you are in the city, we can transport your child to our facility before and after school.

Our center is located on the East Providence/Pawtucket line in the Narragansett Business Park off Newport Ave (near Building 19 & The East Providence Cinema). Our spacious, developmentally appropriate classrooms give us plenty of room for learning and play and are designed with our children in mind. We are never restrained by our lack of space and the teachers have the space to do any small or large project they can think of! Our center includes two outdoor playgrounds and a big, bright school age room! We also have an in ground pool which is an integral part of our large summer camp program. We have swim time for pre-kindergarten through school age twice a day, and even offer swim lessons for our preschool classroom. We have a certified lifeguard on staff who provides lessons and safety at our pool at all times.

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!

We are VERY proud to be a NAEYC accredited facility and a BrightStars rated program! For more information about NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and the high quality standards they demand of their accredited programs, please Visit the NAEYC website

Our center is open conveniently from 6:30am - 6:00pm and our affordable rates include breakfast, hot lunch and daily snacks. We invite you to visit our center at any time; we'd love to give you and your family a tour. For more information or to schedule a visit, please call us at 401-434-1118.

School Director

  • Nicole Chiello

    Hi! My name is Miss Nicole and I am the Interim Director of TCW Rumford! I started working for The Children’s Workshop in August 2008 in our Warwick location where I served as Director. I was also the Director in Smithfield and Westborough! I am a graduate of the University of Rhode Island where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. In addition, I received my Early Childhood Teaching Certificate and just recently (2015) completed my Master’s Degree from Rhode Island College in the field of Early Childhood Education. 

    Before joining TCW, I was a substitute teacher in the RI Public School system. My passion is educating both children and adults - I love to show kids and adults, alike, just how much they are capable of accomplishing. My favorite thing about working with children is that it’s a guarantee that every day is different.

    When I’m not at work, I have a Lab mix, named Lexi, who I adore! I also love the beach and spending time with my family and friends. I’m an avid sports fan - the New England Patriots is my favorite team and football is my favorite sport to watch! 

    I would love to meet you and your family, please visit us at TCW Rumford!
