At The Children's Workshop in Waltham, we understand the day-to-day child care demands placed on today's busy families. We provide a truly quality early childhood education environment where children can feel safe, happy, confident, and proud of what they accomplish. We also offer flexible scheduling, back-up care, affordable rates, convenient hours from 7:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., and a central location with easy access to Route 128.

We utilize The Children's Workshop Curriculum, a framework we developed that draws inspiration from the Creative Curriculum and several states' Early Learning Standards, 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. Each classroom and our playground have been specifically designed to provide age-appropriate challenges and opportunities. The environment is constructed to stimulate the child's imagination and to encourage active exploration and discovery.

Our experienced team of early childhood educators is committed to the unique development of each child. Each teacher has been carefully selected through an extensive interview and orientation process. All of our teachers receive ongoing classroom support, supervision and continuing education. Everyone on the staff is certified in early childhood health and safety, first aid, and CPR.

Our mission is to be the premier provider of quality early childhood education, continually striving to not only meet, but exceed, industry standards and parent expectations. We invite you to visit us and see our programs in action! Please call us at (781) 466-8640 to schedule a personal tour!

    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.
