Your Choice Preschool in Waltham, MA!

At The Children's Workshop in Waltham, MA, our team of experienced educators are ready to help your child learn in a fun and safe environment. Located just off of Route 128, we offer a quality instructional environment for your child. We are not a "day care"- we provide opportunities inside and outside of the classroom for your child to interact with and learn from the world around them in a way that will encourage their growth.

Learn Through Play

At The Children's Workshop, we emphasize learning through play. Aided by several of the country's top teachers and educational professionals, we have developed our own Children's Workshop Curriculum. Drawn from several states' Early Learning Standards, the Children's Workshop Curriculum has had years of classroom testing. It focuses on the milestones that children reach with each year of development. We provide a quality, educational environment where your child can grow and feel comfortable and confident in what they accomplish, all while enjoying learning. This provides a strong foundation for your child's academic success.

Handpicked Staff

Every staff member at The Children's Workshop in Waltham has undergone a rigorous interview and training process. This means that everyone who interacts with your child is doing so in a way that will aid their continued growth. In addition to education, our staff members have training in childhood health, safety, first aid, and CPR. All of our teachers receive ongoing classroom support, supervision, and continuing education. We're hiring! If you are interested in working for The Children's Workshop, please submit a resume and application on our Careers page.

Flexible Scheduling

The Children's Workshop is open Monday through Friday from 7:00AM to 6:30PM. We even remain open during snow storms, unless there is a State of Emergency. We offer flexible drop-off and pick-up times for your child, so you'll have one less thing to worry about! We know that all of our families are busy and we want to help in any way we can!

    Director Bio Image

    My name is Ellen Doherty and I am the Director of the wonderful Waltham Children’s Workshop.  I have been with T.C.W. since 2004 and am fortunate to have worked in the Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and Pre K programs in Waltham.   I am currently living and working in Waltham, but was born and raised a few towns over in Belmont, MA.  I attended Sacred Heart University, in Fairfield CT where I studied Psychology.  I truly enjoy constantly continuing to further my education.     I am currently Director II certified through the Department of Early Childhood Education and Care.   Since working in early childhood education I have had the opportunity to use my creativity full force.  I strive to draw out of children their best qualities, their curiosity and creativity.   Waltham T.C.W. is made up of an incredible group of teachers and families.  I truly believe learning is child’s play in Waltham.  Please give us a call today, as I would love to introduce you to our Waltham T.C.W. Family.
