Why Choose TCW Warren

The Children's Workshop in Warren offers high-quality child care and learning for infants, toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten and school age children. The center is located across the street from Dudek Bowling Lanes on Child Street. Our building includes bright, developmentally appropriate classrooms, a swimming pool and two large outdoor playgrounds.

Our programs offer affordable rates, convenient hours and a great location! In addition, we utilize a nationally recognized curriculum and approach to education that you will see in all of our friendly, inviting classrooms. Our curriculum is aligned with the Rhode Island Early Learning Standards and provides a strong foundation for children's development. Our teachers provide a warm, nurturing environment in which every child can succeed and since children retain more when they're having fun, our programs emphasize learning through play.

In addition to our year-round programs, we also offer an exciting summer camp program that includes weekly themes, multiple field trips and a variety of activities for every child! Did you know we have a swimming pool?? We have a certified lifeguard on duty every day and we offer weekly swim lessons to our campers, which are also open to the public - call today or stop by and visit to get more information!

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 from 6:30am - 6:00pm and tuition includes breakfast, hot lunch and daily snacks. Our school age before and after school program provides transportation to and from area elementary schools. We invite you to visit our center so we can give you and your family an informational tour!

School Director

  • Abbie-Jo Francis

    Hi! My name is Abbie-Jo Francis and I'm the Director of our Warren center. I grew up in Warren and now live in Bristol so I know the surrounding area and many of the great people who live and work here as well - it's a great place to live and work!

    I knew from an early age that I wanted to work with children. I hold an Associates Degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, am a RI certified teacher and have 20 years of experience teaching and working with children. I have been with The Children's Workshop since 2002 where I started as Head Teacher here in Warren. I then moved to Assistant Director and am now proud to serve as Director for this great school.

    Please stop by and visit our Warren Center. I'd love to meet you, show you our newly renovated school, and introduce you to our fantastic teachers!
